If you were holding out for a collected Witcher 3 set, CD Projekt has you covered.
The Witcher 3 will get a Game of the Year edition
With The Witcher 3’s final expansion out, some fans have been wondering whether Geralt’s adventures will be collected in a complete release. Now CD Projekt has confirmed The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will have its own Game of the Year Edition, with Eurogamer sources suggesting it should arrive this August.
“The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was a gigantic effort for the entire studio, and both the team and me were amazed by the good reception of Geralt’s adventures,” game director Konrad Tomaszkiewicz told Eurogamer Since launch, we’ve released two expansions, Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine, which added a lot of new adventures to the already potent mix.
“With all the free DLC and updates the game received so far, including significant changes to the game’s interface and mechanics, many gamers have asked us if we’re working on some sort of a Game of the Year Edition. I’m happy to confirm – yes, plans are in motion to release such an edition. We’ll release more details, including the release date, in the future. In the meantime, I’d like to thank every fan of the game for their support – you’re really amazing!”
While there have been enough Steam and GOG.com sales since The Witcher 3’s release to make buying DLC an easy choice, this collection should be ideal for console gamers wanting a single off-the-shelf purchase. The German age-ratings board, USK, has provided ratings for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One GotY versions, so anyone still holding out can catch up.
And if this will be your first time playing Witcher 3? How about a game of Gwent?
