The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Complete Edition is “the best it’s ever been” on PS5, in line with these eggheads over at Digital Foundry. The staff’s newest video goes in-depth on replace 4.02, which launched final month. This patch promised to enhance efficiency throughout the board, and primarily based on Digital Foundry’s findings, that is precisely what’s occurred.
And that is excellent news for developer CD Projekt Red, as a result of the earlier replace, model 4.01, really managed to have a adverse affect on the RPG’s body fee — even in its 60fps efficiency mode.
Mistakes have been undone, then, however as this evaluation factors out, the latest patch goes past a mere repair, introducing the smoothest body fee so far. Putting varied fight encounters and cutscenes to the check, Digital Foundry finds that the aforementioned efficiency mode stays locked to a silky 60fps most of the time.
However, there are nonetheless areas the place the PS5 title drops a couple of frames. Most notably, the bustling metropolis of Novigrad appears to be the body fee’s archenemy, stopping a rock stable 60fps virtually each time.
It’s an identical story with the sport’s 30fps ray tracing mode, which has seen some huge enhancements because the Complete Edition’s launch in December of final 12 months. More typically than not, it is hitting that 30fps cap, however once more, there are some situations the place the frames falter ever so barely. Hopefully CDPR continues to enhance issues.
