Among the major titles, the name of The Witcher 3 is never missed out. Among the many reasons, it is considered a benchmark of action role-playing games is the fact that it has amazing visuals. Unlike any other game, at least when it rolled out back in 2015. Having said that how would your feel if you are told that a recently surfaced, The Witcher 3 radiance reshade preset has immensely enhanced the vanilla graphics.

This radiance reshade preset 1.0 has improved lighting, shadows and color corrections for The Witcher 3 Vanilla Wild Hunt.
