The Witcher 3 is one of the best looking games released in recent years, but there are always ways to make things look better. A lot of graphics mods have been released, changing the game’s textures and lighting, but if you want to enhance the game’s vanilla graphics, you may want to take a look at a recently released Reshade preset.

The Improved Radiance Reshade 1.0 for Vanilla Wild Hunt improves lighting, shadows and color correction.
