The Witcher 3 Finally Gets HDR Support on PS4 Pro, But Users are Reporting New Bugs

Users are reporting instances of bugs after the HDR patch.

The Witcher 3 finally receives a patch for HDR support on the PS4 Pro, something fans asked for for quite some time from CD Projekt Red.

The PS4 Pro patch adds HDR support for the base and PS4 Pro models, but also some performance optimizations. This means improvements to the game's stability, bug fixes, and "minor visual improvements." You can see the full list of changes below:

  • HDR Support.
  • Various Performance Optimizations.
  • Stability Improvements.
  • Localization bugfixing.
  • Minor visual improvements.

On Resetera, some members of the community complained that while initial impressions of The Witcher 3's HDR on the PS4 Pro are good, there seems to still be framerate issues with the torchlight that causes their game to feel like it's locked at 20 fps.

On the official CD Projekt Red forums, a thread has started listing problems that appear to have come up after the patch went live. Including one user who reported a downgrade to the game's draw distance. It's unclear if these changes are unintentional side-effects of the patch, or changes made on purpose to ensure stability.

The Witcher 3 remains one of the most popular games of the generation despite being years old at this point. You can check out our complete Witcher 3 guides to help you get started on your journey.

CD Projekt Red is currently working on Cyberpunk 2077 which is hinted for a reveal at this year's E3. It will be a drastic departure from the studio's classic take on high-fantasy and instead focus on the a Blade Runner-esque future setting.
