A new GamesBeat event is around the corner! Learn more about what comes next. 

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has received a patch to give it new graphics options on the Xbox One X.

The open-world role-playing game came out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in 2015. Fans and critics praised it for its open landscapes and beautiful world, and the game managed to earn revenues of $250 million.

The Xbox One X patch helps the game look and perform better on Microsoft’s upgraded hardware. 4K Mode runs the game at that resolution at 30 FPS. Performance Mode uses dynamic resolution scaling that will go between 1080p and 4K while targeting 60 FPS.

The Witcher 3 had a similar patch earlier this year for the PlayStation 4 Pro. CD Projekt Red noted that it is working on another PS4 Pro patch that will add HDR support and tweaks “in the near future.”
