The Witcher three is an appealing title in the visual point of view. No matter how many hours you spend, it won’t let you go simply. Light breaking through the trees, swaying branches in the wind, the roach traveling through the snows and sailing through the mist, and more such detailed things make the game simply awesome and gorgeous. The same visual details make it haunting sometimes.
There is no doubt that the game looks good as it is. But it is also true that the powerful Xbox One S would take it to the next level.
