Next-Gen Update for Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Highlights Issue With Steam User Review Policies

Players of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on PC are miffed at Valve’s review-protection system on Steam since it prevents fresh reviews from being posted following the most recent next-gen update. Review bombs and other unusual activities involving the review scores of Steam titles have been aggressively addressed by Valve in recent years. Unfortunately, that occasionally results in circumstances where players are denied vital information, as was the case with The Witcher 3. FOLLOW FOR MORE UPDATES newsyorbits.com

Particularly on PC, The Witcher 3 is a very well-liked and well-received game. The Witcher 3 got well over 500,000 ratings as of its most recent accounting, which was in March, and a 97% rating approval rate. The Witcher 3’s review bombing system was turned on by Valve in March as a result to CD Projekt Red’s public statement supporting Ukraine. Since then, the system has been operational for a total of nine months. FOLLOW FOR MORE UPDATES TWITTER

Next-Gen Update for Witcher 3

The so-called upgrade for next-gen releases that was just applied to The Witcher 3 has caused some performance issues on PC, which is what players are having issue with. It’s a significant enough problem that many PC users, especially those with less powerful hardware, are being forced to revert to an earlier version of The Witcher 3 in order to get the update. As a result, there are a significant amount of unfavorable reviews appearing, but owing to the continued Steam restrictions, new purchasers won’t be made aware of that.

Valve is in a difficult position, there is no doubt about that. It’s important to defend CD Projekt Red from fake, politically motivated reviews. It is regrettable to prevent prospective purchasers of The Witcher 3 from getting a true picture of the game’s current level of quality. Valve most likely would have implemented a straightforward fix resolving both problems if there had been one. It’s just not that easy, regrettably.

Players of The Witcher 3 are hoping that Valve has accidentally left its defenses in place or that they were an overdue precaution and that the game is truly no longer at risk of review bombing. That would enable Valve to disable the safeguards and permit the sharing of fresh reviews. However, it appears more likely that Valve has them in place for a reason and will continue to remove new reviews.

Users of Steam can modify their settings to view the most recent reviews for The Witch3. However, it’s safe to predict that the great majority of Steam users won’t be making any changes and won’t be aware that this may mean The Witcher ‘s Steam reviews are worse than they appear to be.
