CD Projekt Red confirmed the release date for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Game of the Year Edition as August 30. They also confirmed that in select territories and sales channels the game will be titled The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Complete Edition
The Game of the Year Edition will include the base Witcher 3 along with both major expansions, Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine, and all currently available downloadable content.
The Wicther 3: Wild Hunt first launched back in 19 May 2015 where it received audience and critical acclaim. CGM Critic Wayne Santos outlined how “The Witcher III has a compelling plot, combined with some old school, complex game systems that encourage exploration, crafting and experimentation.”
CD Projekt Red have released a slew of DLC for The Witcher 3 since it’s launch that included new armour, new quests, outfits and more.
The most recent expansion, Blood and Wine, released this past May, was a massive update that expanded the core game, adding over 30 hours of game-play. Reviewer Jordan Biordi called the game “a worthy addition to the Witcher 3 experience. While it may not be perfect, it provides enough wonder, excitement, and adventure to keep the player invested.”
While not everyone loved The Witcher 3, it is a game that builds on what people loved about the franchise, and building something expansive and unique. It is a game that deserves a look even if you are not a fan of the RPG Genre. CD Projekt Red have built something unique, and a GOTY could be the best way to jump into a Witcher gaming experience.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Game of the Year Edition launches Aug 30th, 2016 for PS4, Xbox One and PC world wide.
