The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Promises Same Experience Across All Platforms
Being now referred as the next Skyrim, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is promising an experience for RPG fans that won’t be forgotten for many years to come.
The developer has previously admitted that the previous generation of consoles were holding them back but with the current new offerings from Microsoft and Sony, CD Projekt RED is pretty confident that the final installment in the trilogy will be experienced the same across all three platforms.
Michał Krzemiński, senior art producer on the game, has promised that Sony and Microsoft’s new platforms are set to carry the same core experience as PC. “Super-powerful PCs will be able to achieve higher resolutions, and they might run the game a bit faster but the plan is to make the experience the same for all gamers and treat everyone equally.”
The PC version though will still feature some additional enhancements that will require a beastly rig to function. CD Projekt RED has not revealed more information on the topic, but since the game is set for release next year, there’s still plenty of time for the developer to optimize the game as much as possible.
From last month’s E3 showcasing, the Xbox One version has been confirmed to be running at 900p. However, the developer hopes to increase this by the time the game releases. Designed with a 30 fps target in mind, the Xbox One version has so far shown no traces of screen tearing or frame drops, which will be wonderful news for fans.
CD Projekt RED’s claim of the game being the same across all three platforms is pretty bold. Perhaps the developer merely means that the gameplay experience will be the same. A game such as Wild Hunt, with its vast visual enhancements will surely require a lot of juice to run. We’ll see next year whether the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 have enough to run the game similar to the PC version.
