CD Projekt Red, the development company behind The Witcher 3, one of the most acclaimed video games of all time confirmed that they are working on the big patch for PS4 Pro to add HDR color for the best possible experience while the 4K patch was already rolled out.
Right after Skyrim, Bethesda’s most modded game of all time, the Witcher 3 Wild Kings continues to be the game people still play on every platform. Be it the PC, PS4 or the Xbox One, the game’s immersive world, character development and impressive visuals continue to gain accolades from everyone. The only problem is that the Xbox One X and PS4 Pro are the true consoles capable of bringing the best out of the game unless you are running it on a $2000 4K capable gaming PC.
Developers CD Projekt Red didn’t make Sony fans wait much as they rolled out the 4K patch in time. The game is known as the best-optimized titles on the PC where gamers often push it to 4K resolution at the highest graphical settings. When the developers rolled out the patch for PS4 Pro, they ensured the game is tweaked so as to make use of the additional hardware power offered by the new console. It improved the graphics, frame rates and Witcher 3 looked as best as it could get except for HDR.
The lack of announcement made most Sony fans believe that HDR is not going to make its way to the game even though it was already made available on Xbox One X console. Microsoft has been very aggressive ever since they launched the X console and almost all the major titles, as well as first party exclusives, have received 4K, HDR support. Third-party developers extended their support as well because of the sheer power of the hardware used in Microsoft’s console.
Community Manager Marcin Monot said on Twitter that PS4 Pro owners can expect an update next week and more information will be shared with regards to HDR support. It may have taken a while as Xbox One got it in December last year but it would be great to see Witcher 3 look vibrant and great once the next patch is rolled out for the Pro console. Sony has been a bit slow to promote and push all games to 4K when compared to Microsoft but from a gamer perspective, the overall experience remains the same considering the fact that the PS4 Pro has more number of upcoming AAA exclusives which many seem to adore.
