The upcoming next-gen version of Halk Hogan's The Witcher 3 HD Reworked Project has received a new preview video.

Earlier this month, creator Halk Hogan released a Skellige Isles preview, and we now have a new video showing off the first playable area in the game - White Orchard with all of its fruit orchards. The video shows the improvements that Hogan is working on in order to improve further the recently-released next-gen version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. As expected, this mod will only be released for the game's PC version and will also work with versions V1.31/1.32 (pre-next-gen).

A release date for this next-gen version of The Witcher 3 HD Reworked Project has yet to be announced, but the modder has confirmed that he plans to release this mod in the second quarter of 2023 (somewhere between April and July 2023).

"Let's go with another preview of HDRP NextGen Edition!", 'Halk Hogan' writes. "To clarify the situation, the official nextgen version of the game (PC, PS5, Xbox series S/X) has implemented HD Reworked Project 12.0 "Ultimate". HDRP Nextgen is a pc-only modification that will be released in Q2 2023 on Nexusmods. It will be the culmination of this project, to make The Witcher 3 a beautiful gem for a long time. More info soon."
