The Witcher 3 PS5 Has Full DualSense Support, Graphics Options, New Camera, Controls, Photo Mode, More



CD Projekt Red has revealed all kinds of enhancements and improvements coming to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Complete Edition. To be clear, it is the PS5 version that is set to release on December 14th. This will be a free upgrade if you already own The Witcher 3 on PS4.

There’s also a ‘next-generation’ trailer that you can watch above, which should help get you excited for Geralt’s return.

Anyway, we noted all the new things mentioned during the developer’s gameplay livestream. This looks like a robust update.

  • Better visuals across the board on PS5, compared to Ultra graphics settings on PC
  • A fully integrated photo mode
  • A new gameplay camera option, which places the camera closer to Geralt, over his right shoulder (a bit like the camera in God of War Ragnarok).
  • Two graphics settings on PS5: Performance (60fps) and Quality (30fps with raytracing)
  • Full DualSense controller support, with haptic feedback and adaptive triggers in gameplay
  • New controls for sign casting — hold down the trigger and press the designated face button of the sign to use the sign without opening the radial menu in battle
  • Super fast load times on PS5 when loading your game or fast traveling
  • The map now has filters, allowing you to disable or enable certain icons
  • Minor gameplay tweaks and rebalancing throughout the game (fully detailed in upcoming patch notes)
  • New walking and running controls, giving you more control over Geralt’s movement speed (optional)
  • Subtitles can be made larger
  • You can now pause the game during cutscenes
  • Added simplified Chinese voice acting and localization
  • Better localization for other languages
  • Hybrid minimap option, which makes the minimap fade after a set time (unless you press the focus button again)
  • A new invention inspired by Netflix the witcher series
  • New swords, armor and items
  • Alternative dressing for dandelion
  • Cross-save and cross-progress across all platforms

CD Projekt Red says that more information is coming in the next few weeks, ahead of the launch of the extended port. This will include the full patch notes, so we’ll be sure to post them when they go live.
