A new The Witcher 3 next-gen update early comparison video has been shared online, highlighting some of the visual improvements that will be included in the upcoming update.

The new video, which has been put together by Cycu1, compares the footage that was shown during yesterday's presentation with footage from the vanilla release running on an RTX 3080 GPU at max settings. While most of the visual improvements are thanks to ray tracing features, there are a few more subtle improvements, like the grass and draw distance improvements, that will make the game look better even when these features are off.

Trained from early childhood and mutated to gain superhuman skills, strength and reflexes, witchers are a counterbalance to the monster-infested world in which they live.

  • Gruesomely destroy foes as a professional monster hunter armed with a range of upgradeable weapons, mutating potions and combat magic.
  • Hunt down a wide range of exotic monsters — from savage beasts prowling the mountain passes, to cunning supernatural predators lurking in the shadows of densely populated towns.
  • Invest your rewards to upgrade your weaponry and buy custom armour, or spend them away in horse races, card games, fist fighting, and other pleasures the night brings.
