While subsequent patches upped the resolution to 1080p and locked the game at around 30 FPS, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt launched on the Xbox One with its framerate unlocked, which makes an excellent candidate for demonstrating the additional power available in the new Xbox One X.
The Witcher 3 is now out on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in all regions.
In 60 FPS in High Framerate Mode, the game targets a smooth 60 FPS and, this will be the first time an IOI game is running at 60 FPS on any console. We've seen a lot of questions about whether or not Destiny 2 would scale to meet the potential of new hardware. While it would have been nice to have seen these enhancements when the Xbox One X released on November 7, it's nice for Bungie to finally provide a clear comment on its enhancements at all.
There is an official Xbox One X update coming for The Witcher 3, which will allow the game to run at 4K resolution while adding ambient occlusion, texture filtering and higher resolution textures overall. There's new color grading, re-designed skyboxes and improved HDR adaptation rules.
"Insects is a real-time, interactive demo created to showcase the best of 4K Ultra HD, High Dynamic Range, Spatial Audio, and the enhanced visuals of Xbox One X", said a Microsoft dev.
Improved Texture Sampling for both modes: Texture sampling quality has been improved and we use 2GB of extra memory to store more textures and stream them faster and in at a higher resolution.
