The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt took 7 years for Geralt to pet his horse Roach thanks to the latest upgrade
The Witcher 3 It first launched in 2015, and quickly became one of the best games of all time. When later DLCs came out, it further enhanced the game’s reputation. If the DLC doesn’t have anything yet, the Modder community will do it. Yet throughout the years, there is one thing that almost no one has done. Even CD Projekt Red seems to have forgotten about it. It was the ability… to pet Roach the steed.
In The Witcher 3, Geralt will use quite a few different types of horses. But he called them Roach. They are all equally “special”. However, despite the hundreds of hours they spent traveling together, Geralt never once stroked Roach. It is very normal to pat and encourage a horse. Yet our guy Geralt doesn’t know how to do it at all.
Animal lovers in The Witcher 3 like this
But that’s not necessarily Geralt’s fault anyway, as the game itself doesn’t have that feature. From 2015 until now, CD Projekt Red hasn’t updated the horse petting feature for The Witcher 3. And it wasn’t until the recently released next-gen upgrade that animal lovers were finally on display. show your love.
All gamers need to do is walk closer to Roach and hold the Space button. At that time, Geralt will stroke and pat the loyal horse. Also, if he is standing next to the saddle, Geralt will reach out and dust the saddle. Right now, those seem to be the two main scenes for petting Roach. If you want to discover more caressing angles for yourself, watch for a discount to buy The Witcher 3 right away. You will get the next-gen upgrade for free.
Remaining issues of the upgrade
Bearing the name Next-Gen, surely the update also has other highlights. The first is the Mods compatible with this upgrade. CD Projekt Red has carefully listed a list of compatible Mods. This makes it easy for gamers to know if the mod they are using is compatible or not.
However, those are perhaps the only notable pluses. Till now, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Next-Gen has not left much of an impression. The image quality according to many PC gamers is … not as beautiful as before the upgrade. Not stopping, many Reddit users have complained about the technical problems of the upgrade. Specifically, one comment commented, “Still can’t find the optimal setup. It’s like a slideshow with Ray Tracing on.”
People who use good cards also have a hard time
This user said they were using an RTX 3080 graphics card when experiencing the above situation. Even RTX 4090 users suffer. Many other comments have offered some specific solutions. Can be mentioned as disabling Advanced Hair Rendering; turn off Ray Tracing and DLSS, … But one user pointed out the core of the problem: This should have been the most complete version. Quality problems should not exist.
Turning off Ray Tracing is a recommended solution
Summary of the Next-Gen upgrade for The Witcher 3
