The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is set to get a Game of the Year Edition, it has been revealed. Developer CD Projekt Red informed Eurogamer that 2015’s best RPG will be getting a special release as a GOTY complete with the game’s two expansion packs. Sources indicate that the game will drop sometime 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 said. “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!”
If you’ve yet to pick up the game, you should certainly do so—but it might be worth waiting for the Game of the Year Edition if you want to get it all in a single package. It might also make a good gift for someone who doesn’t own the game.
During E3, The Witcher 3 developer CD Projekt Red introduced its latest game, Gwent: The Witcher Card Game. The game is expected to launch on Xbox One and PC in September.
