The Witcher 3 has been a huge success ever since it’s release in May 2015 and has had many updates and expansions along the way. Hearts of Stone was released on the 13th of October 2015, and Blood and Wine on the 31st of May 2016. Now CD Projekt Red has announced the game will be getting a complete graphical overhaul for next-gen consoles and existing platforms.CD Projekt Red isn’t working on it internally and instead have handed creative control over to Saber Interactive. Saber Interactive recently brought Crysis remastered and Witcher 3 to the Nintendo Switch and this time they are giving the game a big graphics bump. The upgrade includes ray tracing, HDR and faster loading times across the base game, both expansions, and all extra content. Ray-tracing will come as standard on PC and on the new version for Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. There hasn’t been an announcement of when it will be available but anyone that owns the current-gen version on PC, Xbox One or PS4 will get the upgrade for free.

Sweet Anita speaks out:
Sweet Anita is a twitch streamer who rose to popularity for fully embracing the tics from her Tourettes syndrome on stream and educating her audience in order to break the stigma surrounding the disorder. With over 1 million followers on the platform, Anita has a huge fan base and if you want to learn more about her rise to fame you can check out our Overclockers creators uncovered episode. Unfortunately being in the spotlight can attract the wrong kind of attention and Sweet Anita has experienced physical Assualt and death threats at the hands of her stalker with very little help from the police since the horrific behaviour began last year. To get more people talking about the subject and try and get help Anita spoken out once again by realising a youtube video on the 7th of September where she interviews other streamers who have had a similar experience. All expressed distress and disappointment on how their experiences have been handled by the authorities and there is a real possibility that they could get seriously hurt or even die at the hands of stalkers. This is an ongoing issue that has gone relatively unchecked by police and hopefully, Anitas video and hashtag #stopstalking will help others to speak out and raise awareness of the issue. There's not much that can be done immediately but the police should begin to take notice of this ever-growing issue. Click the thumbnail to see the video.
