Sony players can rest easy, as "#The Witcher 3" will be receiving an update for the PS4 Pro soon. A while back, #CD Projekt RED confirmed that their expansive RPG will receive a few new enhancements in preparation for the release of the Xbox One X.

To avoid any of their fans feeling left out, the game developer confirmed that a resolution boost is on the way for PlayStation 4 Pro owners. There might be more benefits included in the patch, but they have yet to reveal anything else.

A retrospective

Released in 2015, "The Witcher 3" blew fans and critics away with its immersive story and massive open world. After two respected but flawed games, CD Projekt Red reached the pinnacle of gaming with the release of the final title in the trilogy.

Available on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC; "The Witcher 3" offers one of the biggest open worlds for players to explore. Each town and side-quest is brimming with personality and feels alive. NPCs have back stories and a reason to exist, other than just to send Geralt on a new mission.

Speaking of our favorite Witcher, Geralt's story is brought to a satisfying conclusion. The main quest centers on him trying to locate Ciri before the White Frost. With two prior games and the original books, there is a lot of contexts to go with the world.

CD Projekt Red did a decent job of making "The Witcher 3" accessible to newcomers, as it is possible to enjoy the main story without having played either of the previous two games. The experience is not quite as satisfying, as most of the central relationships are already well defined before the events of the "The Witcher 3," but it is still easy enough to enjoy.

What is next?

CD Projekt Red is already working on their next project, an open world role-playing game called "Cyberpunk 2077." It is set in the universe of "Cyberpunk 2020," a tabletop system created by Mike Pondsmith.

The game developer has been rather tight lipped about the content of the title, although it is expected to be far bigger than "The Witcher 3." With no trailer or teaser released so far, we probably have a few more years to wait before it is finally available to play.

"Gwent: The Witcher Card Game" is a free-to-play spin-off game based on the popular "Gwent" card game, which was a fun mini-game in "The Witcher 3." It was announced last year, and a public beta was released in May 2017.

Although it is a considerably smaller project, it was well received by the public. #Playstation 4 Pro
