The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt With SweetFX Gameplay Video
Acute Gaming has provided a stunning gameplay video for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt with SweetFX, which can be viewed below:
SweetFX does make The Witcher 3 look close if not better than the 2013 build at least in some aspects, despite the lack of the incredible smoke effects and the cut down on foliage. Of course The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt looks quite beautiful as is, and it’s already an immensely demanding title that taxes even the mighty Titan X.
CD Projekt has promised to release a patch that will push the PC graphics quality further, although it remains to be seen how taxing the new additions will be, and whether we will be able to push the quality further without crippling performance substantially.

There’s a way of improving the grass quality in The Witcher 3, as well as improving performance by making a few adjustments in the ini files. There’s also a workaround on how to run HairWorks on AMD GPUs without crippling performance, which enables AMD GPU users to enjoy The Witcher 3 with the HairWorks setting enabled and actually getting better performance than GeForce users not using a Maxwell architecture Nvidia GPU.
We have recently provided some beautiful 4K screenshots of the PC version of the game as well as some 4K gameplay footage that showcases the beautiful graphics that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt can provide at Ultra High-Definition at it Ultra Settings.
While many have argued that the game has lost some of its visual flair since the 2013 reveal trailer, CD Projekt RED claims that they have not changed the textures, and that they have only toned down as sharpening filter that was causing eye strain. The higher resolution can replicate the sharpening effect to some extend so it does indeed seem quite similar. Certain changes have been made of course to accommodate the console hardware, but the game turned out looking quite good indeed. We have also provided some amazing 4K Ultra settings footage of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, which can be viewed here.
