The Witcher 3 – Current-Gen Consoles Equivalent To PC High, Ultra Settings “The Peak In Games”

After what has happened with Watch_Dogs, a lot of PC gamers are a bit skeptical about all the upcoming PC releases. One game that has amazed everyone with its visuals is The Witcher 3; a game that puts Watch_Dogs to shame and is considered as a ‘true’ next-gen game. But will CD Projekt RED pull another Watch_Dogs on us? Apparently not.

Speaking with Eurogamerexecutive producer John Mamais confirmed that the PC Version of The Witcher 3 will look way better than its console counterpart (on Ultra settings). Mamais described the The Witcher 3’s ultra settings as ‘the peak in games’, and has detailed the features that will be implemented.

According to Mamais, the game’s Ultra settings will bring better tessellation, more physics, more post-processing and more realistic fur. We know for a fact that the realistic fur will be enabled via Nvidia’s PhysX suite, so it will be interesting to see whether AMD users will be able to enjoy such a feature.

Mamais also claimed that the console version is equivalent to the high settings of the PC version. Not only that, but the game will be running at 900p/30fps on current-gen consoles (though the team would love to hit 1080p on both PS4 and Xbox One).

In short, the PC version will look better but as Mamais suggested, PC gamers will need a beefy machine to use if they want to enjoy The Witcher 3 with its Ultra settings.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is currently planned for a February 2015 release!
