    How much content is in this game? Every mission I do, I end up getting lost doing 100 side quests, or exploring, I feel like I’m light years away from doing the story cause all I do is quests. Love it!

    200 hrs in the base game if you tried to do them all I think.

    This was the downside for me. Every objective had a sub-objective, for which there was a sub-objective and often more sub-objectives. On the plus side, sub-objective quests were written with the same degree of care and attention to detail as main quests. Quite often I couldn't tell what was a main/sub/side quest. You end up doing them all because they are all great and then you realise you are retirement age and most of you're friends have died. :shocked:

    When did I buy this? 5 days ago?

    I’m 50 hours in.

    Ridiculous.

    Get a Steam Link. That is what I did because I don't feel like playing games at a desk anymore, the sofa is so much more comfy!

    I just finished it and got the bad ending :/
    I didn't help the emperor much either, so Redania won the war. Now I feel bad :/

    Don’t know why but I got obsessed with finding all the Gwent cards, which I finally managed to do yesterday. Huge pain in the ass and only a bronze trophy for it? NOT IMPRESSED!

    CD Projekt details the improvements on the OneX version. From their words, I would expect 4k native rendering. :shocked:

    What specifically is your development team doing to enhance The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for Xbox One X?

    With the additional power of the Xbox One X, we are able to deliver The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in 4K, while providing numerous visual tweaks such as higher-quality shadows, ambient occlusion & texture filtering, as well as higher resolution textures, and an all-around performance boost.

    Interesting, the disc version of The Witcher 3 without any patches has an uncapped framerate and will run at near 60fps on X1X:

    it's interesting but pretty far from 60FPS in Novigrad, clearly hitting the CPU limitation

    yeah but considering it's just running the untouched Xbox One code in boost mode...an actual optimised 60fps mode using the full Xbox One X hardware may be possible?

    Either way if you had a Freesync monitor this wouldn't be too bad (if you didn't mind locked 900p that is)

    Always forget about VRR.
    Yea. Definitely a possibility. Will be interested to see how this plays out in the coming years.

    Clearly.

    55-60fps in cutscenes
    50-60fps in the forest
    35-45fps in Novingrad.
    Occasional big frame-time spikes (higher than 33ms), not good for the '60fps feel'.

    Now we call that 60fps gaming ? More like fluctuating 30-60fps gaming.

    I think Nx gamer usual clear judgment has being overwhelmed by his enthusiasm on this video.

    Novingrad was always a framerate killer. That and the swamp area, the name of which I've forgotten.

    considering how the pro patch looks so good , the X1 version can only look stellar. I dont think they will target 60 fps at all.
