[Update] The full changelog for The Witcher 3 Xbox One X update has been released. It’s also been confirmed that HDR support will come to the PlayStation 4 Pro version in a future update.

[Original Story] The Witcher 3, the latest entry in the series developed by CDPR, recently received a PlayStation 4 Pro update, enhancing the game on the latest Sony console. Today, the game also received its Xbox One X update.

According to online reports, The Witcher 3 Xbox One X update is now live in all regions. The update adds, among other things, a Performance Mode setting, which should prioritize frame rate. Additionally, the rumored HDR support has also been added.

As HDR support is missing from the other versions of the game, it will be interesting to see if it gets added to the PC and PS4 versions or if it will stay as an Xbox One X exclusive feature.

Last month, CDPR talked about the improvements to be found in the game’s Xbox One X update and how they enhance the experience.

How do these enhancements impact the gaming experience, and why did your development team choose to focus on these enhancement areas?

Beautiful visuals are one of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’s standout features, breathing life into the game’s open-world full of places to see, secrets to uncover, and adventures to embark on. When enhancing the game for Xbox One X, we wanted to use the additional power of the console to deliver an even more visually stunning experience. When playing the game on Xbox One X, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’s visuals are sharper and the overall presentation more vivid than ever before on Xbox.

How do you expect fans of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will respond to seeing/playing it on Xbox One X with these enhancements?

We think Xbox users who haven’t played The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt or who are looking to relive Geralt’s final adventure on the new console will be happy to see what we’ve achieved with the game’s visuals on Xbox One X.
