CDPR Comments On Witcher 3 Downgrade Rumor, Continuation Of Choices From Witcher 2 On PS4 And More

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is the third entry in the Witcher series. The previous two games have been released on the PC and you can carry over your save from the PC version of Witcher 2 to Witcher 3. Those who are starting the game for the first time on current generation should be glad to know that there is still a way to make your choices carry over on PS4.

CD Project Red Community Manager Marcin Momot answered some questions of fans giving more details about the story transfer, day 1 patch and pre-load on the PS4.

If you have the PS4 version of the game but want to carry over your choices from the previous games, there should be scenario in the beginning of the game which allows you to carry your choices.

Regarding the day 1 patch, it should be available on the official release of the game. It also deals with the frame rate issues that were reported in some of the game reviews and adds dynamic scaling to the Xbox One version of the game.

Regarding the pre-load for the PS4 version of the game, it will be available on PS4 in select territories starting today.

Marcin Momot also decided to clarify their position regarding a recent downgrade rumor that was posted on the official CDPR forums. This rumor stated that CDPR have downgraded some of the visuals effects in order to optimize the game.

Marcin was quick to note that they don’t comment on such rumor but since the game is close to its official release, they want the fans to be the judge and play the game themselves.

Ok guys, I belive a word of clarification is required. These are just rumors, and as we’ve said before we don’t comment on such. Secondly you have to remember that our game is a big release – a lot of people have been anticipating it and quite a few would like to gain some publicity from it even when it means talking about things which are not true. Wild Hunt comes out in a few days and you will be able to find out for yourself if the game is up to your standards. We believe so – we’ve worked really hard for 3 years to deliver you best possible experience – we love The Witcher as much as you do. To conlude we’d rather have you focus on the game and the fact that it’s going to be in your hand in a matter of days. And one more thing – whenever we say something officially, we always put a person behind it.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be out on May 19th 2015 for the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
