CD Project Red continues to patch up the third The Witcher after last year’s major update. Today we are updating to version 4.02. Below is a list of major changes.
Improved CPU core usage in DirectX 12 version.
Restored diffuse HBAO shading. Players who have disabled ambient shading will need to enable it again. This setting can be changed in Settings → Video → Graphics.
Fixed a bug due to which the translation of the “My Rewards” section in REDLauncher was missing.
Fixed an issue that caused landscapes in Toussaint to flicker when NVIDIA HairWorks was turned off.
Fixed an issue with particle optimization that was causing short frame delays.
Improved performance mode on new generation consoles.
Fixed an issue that caused characters to become blurry during dialogue and cutscenes on PlayStation 5.
Fixed a memory usage issue in ray tracing mode that would sometimes cause crashes on Xbox Series X.
On New Generation Consoles, the game will no longer crash if Geralt moves away from Shani after starting a conversation during the “Who Sows the Wind…” quest.
Fixed an issue where quick saves would not load when using Cross Save on Xbox One.
Added missing “Swords – Top Grade!” (two) on previous generation consoles.
Fixed an issue with overwriting manual saves that caused the earliest saves on PlayStation 5 to be deleted in some cases.
Fixed performance issues that occurred in Bokler and Novigrad after loading a save.
Added ray-traced reflections and refraction for screen-space reflections – water now looks more natural.
Fixed a bug related to brick textures that caused black artifacts to protrude from stone vaults.
Added motion blur slider. This setting can be found in Settings → Video → Graphics.
Fixed an issue where the “Prepare for Battle” quest was missing a dialogue option to update the “Tell Avallac’h it’s ready” objective.
Fixed a bug due to which the door of the warehouse in the mission “Case of National Importance” no longer opened if the player knocked, entered and immediately left the building.
Fixed a bug due to which the quest “Ancient Witches: Cat School Upgrades I” remained active even after receiving upgrades.
Fixed an issue where, when trying to start a New Game+ from an incompatible save, the player would be unable to launch add-ons in a standalone story mode until restarting the game.
