It may not be the biggest news we’ll bring you today, but it’s one that I’m pretty excited about myself. Modder Aleks Vucovic has released The Witcher 3 Redux 3.0. What is it you ask? It’s a complete rebalance of many core aspects of the game. Think of it as an overhaul that sticks true to the core game, but tightens up the balancing, the feel, the response.
It’s little things that add up in a big way, such as re-balancing the Burning Critical Effect. Reducing burning damage to you and enemies during a rain storm is another example.
If you’re a big fan of The Witcher or even just a brand new player, this is a great mod to get. It doesn’t ruin the original gameplay, but it does offer a bunch of QOL improvements. Combined with a few other modern graphics mods, it’s one that should stay firmly on your essential list.
“This mod can be considered a “light” gameplay overhaul as it doesn’t fundamentally change the gameplay mechanics, but still makes enough major changes to be considered more than just gameplay enhancements. Its main purpose is to make the gameplay feel more realistic and lore-friendly where preparation is key. After all, a witcher with no potions is half a witcher. It also attempts to stretch out the levelling elements across both expansions and overhauls the skill system, so you’re not wasting skill points after level 30 just to unlock the later skill tiers in the other trees. The changes are of course subjective but I think they make the minute to minute gameplay more interesting.”
