After releasing on September 20 the final version (12.0) of sensational “HD Reworked Project” mod for The Witcher 3, which was almost five years in development, modder “Halk Hogan PL” today announced a new version of said mod to be called “HD Reworked Project NextGen”, and is scheduled for 2021.
This next-gen version will likely be released alongside the remastered version of The Witcher 3, which will bring support for ray tracing and improve other aspects of the game.
In addition, the modder announced that he also plans to make a similar mod for the recently released Cyberpunk 2077.
For those who do not know, HD Reworked Project replaces thousands of textures, and improves models, objects and other effects, it is now available for download in Nexus Mods. The Witcher 3 HD Reworked Project is remarkable for its high level of quality incorporating new models and high resolution textures without increasing too much use of VRAM (which is ridiculously low in the regular version of Witcher 3), so it runs without problems in any system that can already run The Witcher 3 without changes. Those interested in downloading the latest version of this great mod for The Witcher 3, it is available via Nexus Mods.
Like previous videos, this one details the improvements made to the textures of many of the objects and structures in the game by displaying different types of materials, whether they be wood, metal, cloth or paper, as well as character models and effects (such as the streams and waterfalls).
As a complement, you can also download the HDMR (HD Monsters Rework) mod that improves the textures of all the monsters in both The Witcher 3 and its two expansions, without causing loss of FPS. Another mod to consider is Inspired by the E3 Gameplay, which improves Geralt’s movement and combat animations.
