Held up as Geralt of Rivia’s grand finale before its initial release, developer CD Projekt Red is now set to bid adieu to its prized RPG series – for now, at least – with the release of The Witcher 3: Game Of The Year Edition.
Bundling together both the Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine expansion packs – not to mention those 16 pieces of free DLC that were rolled out soon after launch – this is very much the full package for The Witcher 3 fans. By the same token, those that missed out on what is arguably one of the best gaming releases of 2015 will find plenty of content to chew through when the Game of the Year Edition touches down tomorrow, August 30.
That date also heralds the arrival of a new patch for The Witcher 3. In what will surely be one of the final round of fixes for CD Projekt Red’s massive RPG, patch 1.3 is due to go live at some stage tomorrow, while those who purchase The Witcher 3: Game Of The Year Edition – marketed as the Complete Edition in select territories – will find that the update has already been folded into the core game.
Beyond that, if you’re one of the many players to have been roped in by the addictive Gwent mini game, a full-fledged spinoff is in the works at CD Projekt, though you’ll have to wait a little while longer before the open beta test goes live.
The Witcher 3: Game Of The Year Edition will launch tomorrow, August 30, across PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
