This graphics mod makes The Witcher 3 look loads better

the witcher 3 graphics mod

The Witcher 3 was already one of the best looking games on PC, even as we close in on three years since the game’s release. Still, modder Halk Hogan has found ways to make CD Projekt RED’s RPG sing anew, by giving many of the game’s textures the 4k treatment and replacing many of the game’s meshes with higher fidelity versions.

After you’ve give The Witcher 3 a polish, it’s the perfect time to explore the saga’s tale of family.

Hogan’s Witcher 3 HD Reworked Project has been in the works since November 2015, but it’s just hit its 5.0 update and the modder has put together a video showing off the newly detailed textures:

The big changes in update 5.0 are realtime reflections for almost all the game’s rivers and streams and a tonne of new meshes and textures for brick, wood, and wall surfaces.

You’ll need at least 2GB of VRAM to run the mod and it will hit performance, though Hogan claims it will only be between a 0 – 5 fps drop, with some higher end cards not being affected at all.
