Popular modder Halk Hogan PL releases a graphics mod for the PC version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt that greatly improves the game’s already impressive visuals.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has proven to be a massive success for CD Projekt Red winning accolades left and right, including Game of the Year at The Game Awards. Considering the game’s popularity and success, it’s no surprise that the modding community is still releasing content to enhance the core Witcher 3 experience, with the latest mod for the game further improving its graphics.
Entitled The Witcher 3 HD Reworked Project, this mod boosts the game’s graphics by adding textures and even more detail than is available in the base game. The mod comes courtesy of notable mod author Halk Hogan PL, who is perhaps best known for similar graphics-improving mods he created for other Western RPGs, such as The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim.
Halk Hogan PL claims that this latest mod shouldn’t slow down the game much, so those that have Witcher 3 running smoothly on their PC shouldn’t have to worry about performance issues. That being said, those with a PC that can only handle The Witcher 3 at low settings should think twice before trying the mod. In any case, those looking to download the mod can visit The Witcher 3 Nexus page.
With Fallout 4 mods coming to consoles, the door has now been opened to the possibility of mods for other games coming to consoles as well. It is certainly possible that Witcher 3 mods will make their way to the console versions of the game eventually, but even so, it seems unlikely that a graphics-boosting mod like this will be added. After all, this mod will make The Witcher 3 even more graphics intensive, which may not fly on the PS4 or the Xbox One.
Whether or not any Witcher 3 mods make their way to consoles, there should be no shortage of them available to PC players. The modding community has consistently supported Witcher 3 since launch with a wide variety of mods, and with CD Projekt Red aiding the community by releasing mod tools and holding special events like the holiday modding contest, support for the game could continue well into the new year.
