The Witcher 3 – New Mod Will Overhaul The Lighting System By Replacing It With A More Advanced One

It appears that CD Projekt RED has used a more advanced lighting system during The Witcher 3’s cut-scenes than the one featured while playing the game. And YouTube’s ‘Essenthy Onigami’ has been working on bringing this more advanced lighting system of The Witcher 3’s cut-scenes to the actual game.

While this mod is still a WIP project, Essenthy Onigami claimed that his mod is currently working fine, and that a release date will be announced soon.

Essenthy Onigami has also provided a comparison video, showing the differences between these two lighting systems.

As we can see, the lighting system used during cut-scenes seems more advanced than the one used while playing the game. For example, the scenes look really flat with the gameplay lighting system.

Kudos to our reader [Chaotic] for bringing this to our attention.

Enjoy the videos and stay tuned for more!
