The PC model goes one step additional, because of the ray traced results (world illumination, shadows, ambient occlusion, and reflections) and the Extremely+ graphics preset. Nevertheless, we all the time imagined modders would not be content material for lengthy, even with the up to date graphics, earlier than tinkering additional.
In just some days, we have already got the first graphics mod that pushes The Witcher 3 Next-Gen beyond the developers’ vision. NexusMods consumer A100N discovered working extra parameters for all the next settings:

- Water high quality +3 setting
- Foliage visibility vary +2 setting
- Grass density +3 setting
- Texture high quality +1 setting
