The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Loads Faster on Switch than PS4 and Xbox One

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt loads much faster on the Nintendo Switch than it does on PS4 and Xbox One, it has been revealed. The information was revealed at Gamescom 2019, where developer CD Projekt Red was present with a brand new Witcher 3 trailer and an official announcement of the release date.

A preview article by Japanese language publication Famitsu confirms that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt loads around 40% faster on Nintendo Switch. Satoshi Honma, the Japan country manager for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt developer CD Projekt RED, explained that this is because of its compression. The Switch version of the game shortens the draw distance between Geralt and objects in the game, so it will only load what the player is close to. Tree leaf density, cut scenes, and shadow details have all changed as well.

However, while CD Projekt RED has made major changes to the technical side of the game, the Switch version should look every bit as it does on other consoles. The game also uses “dynamic resolution” that changes the resolution of objects according to the number on the screen. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt developer says that this should keep the game close to 30 frames per second too. The game is unlikely to reach 4K graphics on the Switch like it was able to on the PS4 Pro, but it should keep Geralt’s adventure looking crisp.

CD Projekt RED also confirmed that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is much smaller on Switch. The changes to the game’s compression mean that the developer has managed to squeeze The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt base game and all of its DLC into the incredibly small package of 32GB. For comparison, the base game alone was around 30GB on PS4 and Xbox One and the full Witcher 3: Wild Hunt package took the size up to 80GB.

Players may need to upgrade the storage on their Switch to accommodate the new game as well as their old library of titles, but CD Projekt RED says that the idea is that people can enjoy The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on Switch without any additional downloads.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition will be released on October 15, 2019, for Nintendo Switch.
