The Witcher 3 Xbox One Screenshots Show Geralt With Beard; Day 1 Patch Detailed, Bigger Than PS4

We have already seen The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt screenshots from the PS4 and PC version of the game but what about the Xbox One? As it turns out, the game looks equally great on the Xbox One as it looks on the PC and PS4.

You can check out a set of screenshots shared by NeoGAF userย Painkiller Q8ย for The Witcher 3 Xbox One version.

These screenshot give us a closer look at Gerlat of Rivia and he has an awesome looking beard. Keep in mind that these screenshots were taken with Day 1 Patch applied, which means that this version of Witcher 3 is probably running with Dynamic Scaling, allowing a resolution boost to 1080p on the Xbox One.

In addition to the screenshots, we also learn the size of the day 1 patch (1.01) on the Xbox One, which is about 580 MB in size and it is bigger than PS4 patch, which is about 482 MB in size. You can read the changelog for this patch from here.

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

Let us know what you think about these screenshots in the comments below.

    ahh the “deal with it” peasantry mentality. Rather than being angry at being falsley marketed to (lied) all the way to the very end, people defend it. The defense started with “its not the final build”, which is another way to say they didnt lie! just believe!” to “i dont play for graphics, i want a good game” which is another way of saying “i know i got suckered but refuse to acknowledge it”. theere was a downgrade and playing the “you cant downgrade what didnt exist” argument is bullshit and mental masturbation to justify to yourself the con you just got played off. PS4 players did the same thing with Drake at e3 and so did the devs.

    Its this kind of shit that is killing the industry. it needs to run on results, not hype. and all you fools bending over and accepting this are justifying to yourselves the preoorder you paid for or at the very least all the emotion you invested in waiting for the game. or youre just a dumb fan boy. The game, in its final state looks like shit for a “true PC gaming dev”. its graphics look “great” to console peasants and only “ok” for PC gamers, ive played indie games with better graphics.

    CDPR lied. thats the issue. not the graphics. They lied when they presented it, they lied when they said the graphics will look as good is not better, they lied when they said they took great care to allow PC players to experience its aesthetics without the limitations of consoles. they lied when they said there was no downgrade.

    • SpookyBoogie

      Deal with it. They did a shitty thing by lying but there is nothing you or anyone can do to change the way the game looks now. (Except boycott the game, but we all know that isn’t happening.)

      Best to just move on and enjoy the game, or not.

      • Toojb

        That, or you can just torrent it. It might not have a big impact on their decisions, but you don’t end up having to pay for the product that you were advertised to falsely about. That is the consequence of their mistake, that they don’t get paid for their product by the people they pissed off. The bigger the mistake they make, the more people will torrent the game out of anger.

        I won’t be doing it myself but I can assure you a lot of people will.

    • BloodHound7281

      You fuc#ing pedestal walkers are truly amazing! You think you’re better than us peasants as you say and that alone tells everyone what a piece of $hit you really are! Don’t put words in people’s mouths because you don’t know what other people are thinking!

      • Fred hgggg

        I know what youre thinking. something along the lines of “potato potato potato”

        No i dont think im “better” than anyone. What i do think, is that anyone who claims consoles to be the only/best way to game are morons. And judging by how youre responding you must be one of those morons, as it seems i struck a chord.

        by the way, you can say “fucking”. i wont tell your parents, i promise.

        • BloodHound7281

          First off calling someone a peasant or saying the peasantry mentality clearly states that you believe you are better than,which you are not nor I you! Second, I never said consoles are the best way to play. I could care less what people play on for we are all gamers. I do however care when people start talking down to people simply because of their choice, and I don’t fully spell out certain words because many threads will not post my comments because of such words! But nonetheless I appreciate you not telling my parents, lmfao!

  • Kronos0999

    Man,all of you f*cks, f*ck off.The game has been finalized and going to release in three days.If you are still crying that “Oh no,Waaaaaaaaaaaa!!CDPR lied to us,now we are getting a bad product” then don’t play the game at all.
    Just be happy with what you have.It’s not like PC,PS4 or XB1 look bad,they’re great.CDPR are ahead of their time right now,so the 2013 thing did not work but wait for witcher 4 and then expect the unexpected.

  • ImOnaDrugCalledSheen

    “the game looks equally great on the Xbox One” LOL, no.

    • There’s no big difference between the 3 so cut the noise.

  • TomaKaThor

    People play and care about consoles more. So get over it you selfish cry baby.

    • Poor PS Poor people

      GFY!

      • GotNews4Ya

        “Bigger is Better” rofl. Silly little fella.

      • Revolver Ocelot

        Cry more, Lionheart.

        • Poor PS Poor people

          No you cry more with every reply you make. I’ll just continue to laugh at your low socioeconomic status, PAUPER!

          • Revolver Ocelot

            Look who suddenly reappeared. Cry more, Lionheart/rscottyg. ๐Ÿ™‚

          • Poor PS Poor people

            Hahaha, keep desperately fishing as if those names mean anything to me, PAUPERBOY!

          • Revolver Ocelot

            Zip it Lionheart, you tiresome little pissboy. ๐Ÿ™‚

          • Poor PS Poor people

            Keep crying little b*tch, keep at it, I’ll just continue laughing at your pauperstatus.

          • Revolver Ocelot

            Put a sock in it, Lionheart, you snivelling prat. ๐Ÿ™‚

            Guest/ I’m right your wrong

  • It’s sad a selling point of a game is “look at our main character’s beard detail!”

    Truly pathetic…

    • David

      2013 was simply a concept of what they wanted. Sadly a game of this scope would be damn near impossible to run with those visuals. Only the strongest PC’s would be able to run that. Consoles wouldn’t at all. All the crying is unnecessary. The game is gorgeous regardless.

      • Gorgeous? I think that’s highly exaggerated. Modded skyrim looks better than The Witcher 3 on Ultra. It’s ‘Good’ at best. I really wish people would stop insulting the word gorgeous.

        • David

          Wasn’t a lie. It was a concept. I just don’t think it’s that serious I stand by what I said. It is gorgeous. And I disagree that modded skyrim looks better. It honestly seems like people just can’t enjoy games this generation. They just have to criticize.

          • Tom Daly

            Ali needs to shut up before he makes himself look any stupider

          • Kronos0999

            Too right,dawg.

          • Guest

            Immature.

          • Kronos0999

            Good for you ‘mature’,dawg.

          • Guest

            Says the guy who sounds stupid.

          • Guest

            No, seriously, modded skyrim looks way better than this. Its not even a contest. This game literally looks like crap.

          • David

            It’s one thing to not be pleased with how it looks compared to the initial reveal. But to say it looks like crap? You’re obviously trolling. I can’t take you seriously.

          • GotNews4Ya

            Ding, Ding, Ding.. We have a winner.. Clearly anyone who goes from “Downgraded Visuals” to “The Witcher 3 Looks Like Crap” is a troll. I mean common.. Complaining that the visuals aren’t as amazing as they told us.. is one thing.. but to say they look like crap is a whole different ball game. They don’t look like crap.. they are still some of the best visuals in the game. Not to mention that Mods will come out for this.. So I don’t understand why he’s knocking it.. Does the Original Skyrim look better? If not.. why are you comparing a MODIFIED VERSION… MODIFIED TO LOOK BETTER.. to a Basic Version? Wait until the MOD comes out for Witcher 3.. It will look like the first pictures and you can return to exclaiming “PC MASTER RACE” after every post. Okay Buttercup?

          • David

            What’s really confusing is the developer specifically said that the ultra PC version hasn’t been shown and they pulled other PC versions because the footage shown wasn’t the final build for PC. So these people are all upset when in reality the true PC versions could end up actually looking very close to the 2013 reveal. We have no idea because no one has seen them yet.

          • David Jetta

            oh are you ona xbox one or a laptop?

        • Tom Daly

          They’ve been releasing screenshots and videos since 2013 you know, did you not notice the difference before coming here to run your mouth?

          • I think a lot of people noticed how everything they have been releasing since that point does not even look as it does – but 20x worse. Hence why this thing is a matter of REAL discussion. And anyone denying Skyrim modded does not look better is clearly incapable of modding the game properly

          • Kronos0999

            Yeah,but everybody is capable of modding your face properly if you ever show it to any of us,b*tch. And don’t tell me about modding,you just mod games(if your little brain has the capacity or else your big brother does it for you) but I invent them.

          • David Jetta

            if your sewriously compareing gameplay video to videos like the “hunting monsters” and “night to remember” videos you have been hit on your head one to many times, or not enough depending how annoying you are to people

          • Kronos0999

            Don’t waste time on b*tches like Ali,he is just too much of a word which begins with ass and ends with hole.

        • Kronos0999

          Seriously women,just f*ck off.If you don’t like the game then don’t play it,no one is forcing you.Stop commenting sh*t thinking you are smarter than the developers of CDPR who don’t know what is best for their game.
          And yes,the witcher which is going to be released is ‘gorgeous’,but you don’t know the meaning of it cause you were surrounded by ugly all you life,b*tch.

          • Guest

            The devs know whats best for their game? No they don’t, time and time again they have shown a propensity to pick minor graphical touch ups over framerate. Suboptimal AA and AF and gameplay and game mode and content decisions and the list goes on yet idiots like you still spew this nonsense line like its something smart to say? Fanboys. And the game is hard “gorgeous” its just “meh” at best.

          • Kronos0999

            So why are you here??And whenever you start a conversation never demur from the crux of it.No one is forcing you to play the game,just go back in whatever black hole you were spawned in with whatever pride you have left.
            BTW-you think you are some dev,no,you are not.The people at CDPR worked for four years to give us this product,they know what is best at what place.The 2013 thing was way a head of it’s time,there was no way consoles could’ve run it not to mention that only the best PC would support the game.As CDPR aimed at a wider audience,they had to degrade it.However I don’t suppose you would understand this highly ‘complex’marketing business.
            PS-their is no word as ‘meh’ idiot.Use proper words.
            Before you reply just take a moment to think about your mother.

          • Brian Brah

            The consoles can easily handle 2013.

          • Kronos0999

            You clearly have no idea of what you are saying.Just piss off before you embarrass yourself even more.

          • Brian Brah

            There are better looking games on ps4 than 2013 trailer idiot.

          • Kronos0999

            Yeah??Then name one ass hole.

          • GotNews4Ya

            Start developing games please.. Obviously they need more people like you in the Industry.. Since you are so successful in the gaming development scene.

          • David Jetta

            love how hes a guest so no one can point at him in real life and proclaim IDIOT!

          • Bramstons

            Guest has many user names on discus, “I’m right your wrong ” etc, he is even using one of his other names on the posts here.

        • GotNews4Ya

          Do you have the game? Because I am almost 100% positive I have watched streams that have shown better visuals than what are in those pictures.. so maybe they aren’t pictures from Ultra? Who knows? They keep telling everyone to wait for the game to release.. I don’t understand why you are knocking them so hard? I have heard nothing but people praise how amazing the game looks on Ultra. It also looks extremely good on PS4 and Xbox One. They have seriously out done themselves..

          People are so petty over stuff.. I mean can you honestly tell me that the difference in visual quality is going to keep you from having fun? It’s not like now their are stick figures with pictures of peoples faces pasted on.. and Its running shitty.. nope.. Silky Smooth 60 fps on PC.. With SICKENING Ultra Settings.. So what the Fire doesn’t look as realistic.. So what the draw distance was decreased a bit.. Who cares that the Grass is now generic.. Its not that big of a deal.. Th character Models are still crisp in any video I have seen.. I don’t understand it.. It’s called an RPG.. Last time I checked, 200 hrs of playtime is way better than Visuals..

        • Louis

          Don’t buy the game then.

        • Edward Woodward

          good jobs its not graphics that make a game good then isn’t it. yes, they help, but theyre not the most important factor. A slid story, set of characters, world/lore, gameplay mechanics etc are what makes a game good.

          Stop being such a child

        • Brian Brah

          The game already needs a 7870 to run on low who would want a gtx 970 as minimum very few people would even run the game.

        • David Jetta

          ali read your first sentence again. modded mkyrim looks better. no shit itll look better, the game has been out for years. lets here what u have to say in about 4 years for the witcher. i bet you also bitched and complained about watchdogs. what you need to learn is a hard fact. all that video release they did to announce it is eye candy. its to get people talking about the game. are you also going to be heart broken when battlefront doesnt look as good as it was shown in their “in engine” video.

          devs release 2 kinds of videos. “in engine videos” that show off the power and detail they can do, normally this is noted through an “inengine video” at the bottom of the game and also cinematic camera angles.

          in game videos are completely diffferent, showing off gameplay and how their intricate systems all work together to make the game feel alive.

          if you dont like it so much, go back to skyrim, people here are proud of what CD projekt Red has accomplished in a work of AAA annual releases from EA, Activision and Ubisoft, a game thjat has taken over 4 years to develop is a nice change.

          False Adverstisment is a lie. PERIOD

        • and you know modded skyrim looks better than Witcher because….?
          The game hasn’t released, the trailers and videos are on Youtube, which scales down video quality….and I don’t know how your comparing screenshots…
          it maybe false advertising…but I am happy that Witcher 3 is coming to PS4, is gonna look good enough…

      • Guest

        This game is gorgeous? Looks like crap to me.

        • SpookyBoogie

          Either you’re delusional or a PC gamer who is still angry about the apparent downgrade.

    • Kronos0999

      Are you and idiot,check out my comment.(Not this one,the one I posted and the one disqus isn’t allowing me to post as reply).

    • Barry Harden

      PC games just don’t make enough money for publishers. Add in the fact that gaming on PC is more expensive, troublesome, piracy, and multitudes of hacks and cheats is a recipe for a terrible gaming platform. This isn’t going to change as more publishers will put their resources and focus on console gaming.
