We have seen plenty of mods developed for The Witcher 3 on PC, and we definitely didn't expect to see one get developed for the recently released Nintendo Switch version. This mod is very welcome, as it makes the game look somewhat better.
The new mod allows players to access some additional graphics setting directly from the game's menus. These settings include the ability to turn motion blur, bloom, depth of field, light shafts, sharpening, and anti-aliasing on or off.
A video shared by Pixelacos Gameplays shows how disabling anti-aliasing and activating the sharpening filter makes the game look much better.
While this mod is extremely useful, only those with a hacked console can install it, so most users won't be able to use its features. Still, as these settings can be accessed straight from the game's menus, there's the chance that CDPR will enable them with an update if there's enough request.
There have been zero compromises in content, with only minor ones on visual fidelity, audio options and slower loading time than I’m used to. There’s little doubt to me that, when released, this will be the best open-world game on the Nintendo Switch and, arguably, the best game in general on the Switch. How nice it will be to the battery, well that’s something I’ll have to figure out when I have the game and I’m constantly playing it whenever I’m on the go. When will that be? There’s no set date, the aim is still for a 2019 release. I, for one, can’t wait.
The Witcher 3 is now available on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
