Top Six Witcher 3 Mods

The Witcher 3 launch cinematic A Night to Remember

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has barely been out in the world for a week, but modders have been hard at work in that time to bring new content to the game. Seriously, where do they find the time to actually play it? At the time of writing, there are already more than fifty Witcher 3 mods on Nexus Mods. Here are the top six to check out:

witcher e3fx

1. E3FX

The Witcher 3 went through a teensy-weensy graphical downgrade between its first E3 trailer and its release. This mod aims to bring the game back up to speed with how it looked in that trailer. Beware, though. This mod may require a pretty gutsy system to run without affecting performance.

2. Wealthy Vendors With Fair Sale

This mod’s pretty simple, but it will make your efforts to offload your loot astronomically easier. It greatly increases the amount of money vendors have, so they can buy more of your stuff, and also allows you to change how much they will pay for your stuff. Pretty nifty.

3. Fantasy Graphics Mod

If the realistic, dark graphics of E3FX aren’t for you, you might be interested in the Fantasy Graphics Mod. It goes in the opposite direction and adds more colour to the game, removing the bluish tint, and gives it that classic high-fantasy vibe. You’ll see lush, vibrant greens for all that vegetation and the sunlight will sparkle off Geralt’s shiny white hair.

4. Extreme Weather Conditions

This Witcher 3 mod will add new weather conditions to Novigrad, Velen, and White Orchid. Think big scary thunderstorms with lightning all over the place and trees waving around like mad in the wind. Note that this may effect performance on lower-end machines.

5. Increased Creature Loot

This mod will add better loot to the creatures you kill, from deer to werewolves. In short, it makes it physically possible for Geralt to make a bit of money out of his hunting.

6. Over 9,000 Weight Limit

Although The Witcher 3 already has a fairly generous weight limit (by most RPG standards), your bag will sometimes feel like it fills up all too quickly. This Witcher 3 mod will give you a maximum weight of 9,000. Good luck filling that!

As time goes on, you can expect many more Wither 3 mods to pop up, so remember to keep an eye on the modding scene.

Call of Duty Early Access will run from Friday, August 30th, to Wednesday, September 4th, as announced on its blog. This is two days after the Call of Duty Next showcase, which is set for August 28th. To play, you must have already bought Black Ops 6.

The open beta is the following weekend, and anyone who wants to can join. The fun will start on Friday, September 6th, and end on Monday, September 9th. The full release is set for October 25th of next month on PS5 and PS4.

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Raiden, the famous shmup series, will come back as a twin-stick shooter on PS5, PS4, and PC

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.
