The Witcher 3 on PS5/XSX is the definitive version of one of the best RPGs ever

The Witcher 3 is gaming’s definitive fantasy RPG for modern times. As influential and as cited by other developers as DeusEx for immersive sims, Doom for shooters, and Dark Souls for everything else. It’s a game that launched CD Projekt into superstardom, in a similar way that GTA 3 did for Rockstar 20 years ago. While some cracks are beginning to form around the edges, the people who’ve played the game 10 times already won’t care, and will be thrilled to hear that the next-gen version of the game provides a definitive console experience and a great reason to head back out into the wilds.

  • The definitive console version of a modern classic
  • Rock-solid 60FPS mode
  • Unimpeachable writing
  • Dozens of stellar characters
  • The high watermark for side content in modern games
  • Ray tracing mode is unstable in dense areas
  • Character models are starting to show their age
5 / 5
