According to a new post on its forums, CDPR revealed that some of the most popular mods on PC can still work after the update gets installed on PC. The post revealed that only 71 mods will work but they did say the list may not be 100 percent.
A table was revealed where the mods are listed with the folders where they can be found. They were labeled properly which lets players check which ones are compatible and not.
CDPR has a team of modding experts and will be giving the other modders advice and help on forum post-release when possible.
For modders whose mods did not make the cut, do not worry. CDPR will be releasing a new version of the Witcher 3 command line tools together with the game update. This will help modders make their mods compatible again with the game. Those whose mods did make the cut can still use the modkit to improve their mods.
The Witcher 3 next-gen update launches on December 14, 2022 on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S.
