The Witcher 3 looks amazing with ray tracing and over 100 mods

Despite the fact that The Witcher 3 was released in 2015, no less than 7 years ago, it is still one of the most renowned RPGs of recent years. The title, which for an extended time it enjoyed being the game with the most GOTY awards in the history of the industrycontinues to have high levels of sales and active players even today, having exceeded the figure of 30 million sales.

Today we want to show you how, despite the passage of time, The Witcher 3 looks amazing with ray tracing and over 100 mods. Produced by the Digital Dreams YouTube account, popular for its expertise with this type of content, this video implements a series of lighting and texture mods to bring the game closer to the graphic quality of more contemporary titles. You can take a look at it below.
