Brand New The Witcher 3 Update Brings More New Features

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a massive game that continues to surprise many players to this day. Not only does the base game provide an amazing role-playing adventure to get immersed in, but the extra content from CD Projekt Red will keep anyone busy for a long time. Since the initial release of The Witcher 3, the game has received multiple updates and gotten ported to multiple platforms, including the Nintendo Switch. But it looks like a new update for The Witcher 3 will give players even more new features to explore across all platforms they can play the game. And it’s just in time for season 3 of the Netflix show too.

A new update from CD Projekt Red was sent out on Wednesday which included a number of things that improve the overall experience. Update 4.04 for all consoles and PC will have various quality-of-life improvements, as well as mild touchups for the Nintendo Switch version. The update improves on the Nintendo Switch cross-progression feature, allowing you to continue your game when you log into your CD Projekt Red account if you began playing on another platform. This was something that many fans were vocal about for a while since the Switch version was released.

The Switch version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt also gets access to content for the game that was inspired by The Witcher Netflix series. Before this wasn’t included on the Switch version when other consoles received the content, but not everyone can access everything that was included as a nod to the show. If you wanted Geralt to look like the version Henry Cavil portrayed in the show, now you can do so on the go.

The new update also comes with graphical tweaks and menu changes across all platforms, as well as bug fixes in multiple areas. Now players can switch to and use potions or other items from the radial menu, instead of having to go into the regular menu during combat. This is definitely a good change that many players will appreciate, allowing combat to flow better and keep the momentum of the action in-game at a high level. The bug fixes from the update also help make an already detailed and polished game feel even more so. A full listing of everything included in the new update from CD Projekt Red can be found on The Witcher website.

For fans of The Witcher, the timing of this update is convenient enough as the final part of the third season of Netflix’s show comes to a close. The final episodes of The Witcher season 3 with Henry Cavill will start streaming on July 27th, marking the end of Henry’s time as Geralt of Rivia.
