Witcher 3 New Game Plus Details Revealed; Experience & Money Carry Over, Trophies and Gwent Cards Don’t
CD Projekt RED Community Lead and Website Coordinator, Marcin Momot, revealed some of the details regarding the newly announced New Game Plus Mode due sometime soon as the last free DLC for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
The Witcher 3 New Game Plus Mode will carry over experience and money but not trophies and Gwent cards
Players who are level 30 or higher will maintain their level, while those of lower, will be bumped 30, as soon as they start New Game Plus. A Clearing Potion will be available, giving players the option to reset previously allocated skill points. All money, items and experience will carry over, but quest items, Gwent cards, trophies, as well as books and letters will not.
Players will also be given a choice of difficulty for New Game Plus, to allow access to the Death March achievement/trophy. Enemies will also be stronger.
We have previously reported that Marcin Momot, Community Manager and Coordinator for CD Projekt has stated that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt does not have a level cap, something that should really please fans of the game.
A new mod for the PC version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has been made available, named E3FX which as the name suggests it tries to mimic the E3 2013 trailer. You can check out and download the mod here.
CD Projekt RED has finally released the new update for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt with the free DLC on Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4. The update includes a sexy new look for Yennefer and a new mission for Geralt.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt had the biggest UK release of the year so far, crashing Battlefield Hardline's week one sales by 53 per cent. 63% of physical sales were on the PlayStation 4, followed by 32% on the Xbox One and 5% on PC. The majority of PC sales were digital though. On top of that it seems that it managed to top both the Steam and Green Man Gaming charts as well.
The game has received another patch and the patch notes state an improvement of the texture rendering quality on High and Ultra settings.
The Witcher 3 Hunter’s Config is a nice little tool offering easy access to graphical options, and it's certainly worth a look.
As we have previously covered a few adjustments in the ini files can improve the grass quality in The Witcher 3, as well as the performance. A workaround on how to run HairWorks on AMD GPUs without crippling performance, has also been made available, enabling AMD GPU users to enjoy The Witcher 3 with HairWorks enabled, while getting better performance than GeForce users not using a Maxwell architecture Nvidia GPU.
The Witcher 3 is available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
