CD Projekt Red will give us our first look at The Witcher 3’s next-gen update tomorrow

This month, CD Projekt Red finally gave us a date for The Witcher 3's long-awaited ‘next gen' update. The update not only includes enhanced graphics for PC and consoles, but also new in-game content. We've yet to see what the game looks like with this new update, but that will finally change tomorrow. 

The Witcher 3 is seven years old as of this year. The new update will include graphical and performance enhancements for PC, Xbox Series X/S and PS5, in addition to ray-tracing. The update also features new content themed on Netflix's Witcher series, and a few community-made mods are being integrated into the game too, but once again, specific details have not yet been revealed.

That should all change tomorrow, as CD Projekt Red will be going live at 6PM CET to stream our first look at the new version of The Witcher 3. The update will roll out for Xbox Series X/S, PS5 and PC on the 14th of December.

CD Projekt Red initially tasked Saber Interactive with developing this new version of the game following the company's excellent work on the Nintendo Switch port. The update was unfortunately pushed out of 2021 while CDPR focused on fixing Cyberpunk 2077 and then earlier this year, CD Projekt Red took over development of the update with plans to get it out to gamers by the end of this year.

On next-gen consoles, you'll have to download the new ‘next-gen' version of the game to benefit from the upgrades. You will get this version for free if you already own a PS4 or Xbox One copy of The Witcher 3. PC players will get the update automatically without the need to install a new version of the game.
