According to the official The Witcher 3 Update 4.02 patch notes, next-gen and PC users will have a far better experience after installing this update. Besides the many fixes regarding dialogue and problems within missions, PC players should have fewer performance issues as the developers improved CPU core optimization, some screen flickering problems, and even temporary stuttering.
Next-gen console users also received some improvements in the performance category. Now performance mode should work better, as developers fixed a few issues regarding Ray Tracing on Xbox Series X and characters becoming blurry in dialogues on PS5.
Overall, The Witcher 3 still has a lot of active players on many platforms. On SteamCharts, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has around fifteen thousand players, something many current games cannot gather a week after its release. The fact a title released in 2015 can still pull those numbers talks to the quality of the game itself.
If you have not played The Witcher 3 in a few years, consider returning to the title. This update will not mean a lot to many players, but for the console demographic, these fixes and improvements can be the thing they need before jumping back on one of the best titles in recent years.
