The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt became one of the most popular RPG games upon its release in 2015, winning the approval of both critics and fans worldwide and going on to do great business. Now it has been more than a year since The Witcher 3‘s release, and fans have had a fair bit of time to play around with the game and come up with their own tricks and hacks to make things a little more exciting. The latest trick to emerge about the game involves a graphics downgrade to achieve a 3DS-like look.
The graphics design of The Witcher 3 is one of the most praiseworthy elements in the game, providing a vastly realistic gameplay style that has appealed to fans everywhere. But what the graphics downgrade does is that it gives players a chance to play The Witcher 3 in a simpler form. The game will certainly not look as good as it generally does after the downgrade;instead, it will showcase the game’s scenes in a more oldschool animation-like manner.However, that is not all that it does. The cool thing about the downgrade is that it allows fans to boost the performance of the game by up to 15 FPS. In order to achieve this fans who have the game on PC can set theTextureMipBias value to 8 in their .ini file, or download theUltimate Graphics Options Mod from Nexusmods.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is undoubtedly the most successful instalment in the Witcher series from developer CD Projekt RED, owing to its expansive gameplay which includes smarter AI. The game’s world is also more thanis more than 30 times larger than the previous Witcher games and players need to acquire a suitable mode of commute in order to traverse through many of its locations. To support its size, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt runs on the REDengine 3 gaming engine which allows players a smoother playing experience while exploring an open environment with a complex, non-linear story.
