A long-awaited update for the Switch version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is apparently rolling out in Korea. The update reportedly introduces cross-save functionality with the Steam and GOG versions of the game, as well as some undetermined graphics options that should give players a little bit more of a choice between looks and performance. It’s hard to ascertain why the update is currently only live in Korea, but in time, it should deploy elsewhere, right? In the meantime, check out the update in action in the pictures below. The bottom image shows a slightly crisper in-game display. That’s the power of graphics options, I guess. What do you think–does The Witcher 3 on Switch look revitalized, or does it still look a bit too much like you’re playing without your glasses on?
The update has been a long time coming, with little information to go off of other than Saber Interactive saying it was going to be “worth the wait” last month. PC cross-save would be a pretty huge deal, and absolutely “worth the wait” as far as I’m concerned. The Witcher 3 being on Switch in any playable form is pretty crazy, but with cross-save, you can maintain the PC version as your central platform for a playthrough and then carry out some odds and ends–maybe checking out one of the game’s many, many side quests–with your Switch while out and about. This may open the game up to plenty of fans who prefer the PC experience but would enjoy The Witcher 3 on the go without committing to an entire blurry playthrough.
What do you think? Are you inclined to dive back into The Witcher 3 on Switch with a new update seemingly on the way? Or would you rather play such a behemoth on a home console or PC?
