CD Projekt Red have confirmed the existence of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Game of the Year edition, after it was leaked by German ratings board USK.
In a statement to Eurogamer, game director Konrad Tomaszkiewicz said: “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. 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!”
The Game of the Year Edition will offer the main game as well as both downloadable expansions, Heart of Stone and Blood and Wine. The DLC packages are available now for all platforms, adding hours of new story gameplay as well as expansive new areas — our guy Dan was incredibly complimentary in his reviews, giving both a 9.5/10.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Game of the Year Edition launches August 26.
