New Witcher 3 Switch Update Adds Cross-Saves with PC

Witcher 3 Wild Hunt Switch (1)

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt just got an update on Nintendo Switch, adding multiple features including PC save file integration and more graphical settings.

Update 3.6 now lets players share their┬ásave files for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt between Nintendo Switch and PC through Steam or GOG. In the middle of an exciting quest on your home gaming rig, but suddently realise you’re running late for your seven-hour coach to Wolverhampton? Never fear, take your Switch along and you can pick up exactly where you left off while you’re out and about! What a time to be alive.

More graphical settings have also been added with the latest patch, making it possible to customize visual fidelity from the options menu. There is also additional touch control support, so players can now navigate the HUD, menus and Gwent using the touchscreen.

In regards to the cross-save feature, you might need to take a bit of extra care to enjoy the game on both platforms bug-free. Modded PC saves can cause various issues if you try to use these files on the Switch, and Nintendo’s cloud save feature may also fail to recognize a save if the file name has been changed on the PC.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC. For more information on Switch Update 3.6, head over to the official Witcher website.
