CD Projekt Red announced that has released the Xbox One X patch for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The Xbox One X upgrade patch introduces a number of graphical features and tweaks to the game across two visual fidelity options: 4K Mode and Performance Mode.

In 4K Mode, the game and all its additional content will run in 4K resolution, featuring enhanced shadows, ambient occlusion and texture filtering, as well as higher resolution textures and gameplay at 30 fps. Switching to Performance Mode will enable dynamic resolution scaling, rendering the game at a resolution of minimum 1080p and up to 4K, while targeting 60 fps during gameplay. Both modes will additionally feature support for HDR, making the game look more vivid when played on an HDR-capable display.

The PS4 version of the game received a similar upgrade patch for the PS4 Pro system earlier in October, which introduced 4K resolution and enhancements such as improved ambient occlusion, texture filtering, as well as an all-around performance boost. CD Projekt Red revealed that PS4 Pro players can expect an additional upgrade patch, featuring support for HDR and a number of technical tweaks improving the overall experience, to be released in the near future.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is available for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
