Witcher 3 is a great game, probably the best games to come out this month. However, despite the greatness, there is a slight issue that a lot of people have been reporting. According to several reports from around the internet, the game induces motion sickness after spending some time in the game. At first the issue seemed to be originating from the game itself, but recently we have received a report that confirms that the game in fact is a culprit. The reasons that are inducing the motion sickness are as followed:

  • Chromatic Aberration: This basically means motion blur which can be turned off.
  • Constricted FoV (Field of View): Another reason that has been causing the motion sickness is that the field of view is extremely constricted and moving too much too often will cause motion sickness.
  • Camera: Another factor that causes the motion is the camera. The movement, specially during dodging is really fast and can cause motion sickness.

This results in symptoms such as nausea, headache and dizziness. However, you can get rid of it by a simple tweak. Just go to bin\config\base\gameplay.ini and open the file and look for MotionSicknessFocusMode and set it to false. Save it and run the game again. It won’t be there anymore.
