The Witcher III will dynamically scale between 900 and 1080p, as highlighted by a new gameplay video from developer CD Projekt Red.
“The video you’re now watching is grabbed directly from an Xbox One console,” the company pointed out. “We’ve been working to give gamers an even better experience on Xbox One and, on day one, we’ll bring you dynamic scaling from 900p to 1080p. We’re not much more than a week before launch, but we’re still fighting for every line of code—we want gamers to get the best possible experience we can.”
CD Projekt Red had previously stated that the Xbox One version of Witcher III would run at 900p. The dynamic scaling means that the game will run in 1080p unless what’s happening on-screen would demand scaling back to 900p for the sake of running smoothly (such as, say, fighting a lot of ferocious beasts while unleashing effects-dripping magic).
The Witcher III: Wild Hunt launches across PS4, Xbox One, and Windows PC May 19. Look forward to our review possibly never—we might lose Andrew to this one forever.
