New PS4 patch brings HDR and performance optimizations to The Witcher 3


It's live today for PS4 and PS4 Pro

There were some bumps in the road but the HDR patch for The Witcher 3 on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro is now live. And while the main feature is high dynamic range, that's not all:

  • Various performance optimizations
  • Stability improvements
  • Localization bugfixing
  • Minor visual improvements

I don't have a television with HDR support (maybe at the end of the year?), but if I did, I'd happily take this patch as an excuse to load up The Witcher 3. Nearly three years later, the game is still giving.
