The Witcher 3’s Game of the Year Edition is coming on August 30

2 min read


We already told you that The Witcher 3 was getting a Game of the Year edition, thanks to the chaps at Eurogamer getting confirmation of the fact after a ratings listing outed the release. Eurogamer also suggested the accolade-laden, complete collection of the game and all of its DLC would see release at the end of this month. According to a new press release from CD Projekt RED, they were on the money.

CDPR has confirmed that the Witcher 3: Game of the Year Edition will be hitting PC, PS4 and Xbox One on August 30. It’ll contain the base game, along with cosmetic DLC and the games two pretty damned wonderful expansions; Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine.

Here’s the announcement trailer:

If ever there was a game worthy of getting a “Game of the Year” release, The Witcher 3 would be it. In our review, we said it set new standards for open-world RPG’s

“The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is an impeccable role-playing game, and one of the finest games ever created. Whether it’s as large as tracking the Wild Hunt or as small as delivering a love letter, The Witcher 3 makes Geralt’s actions count in the most incredible ways – creating a world begging to be explored for countless hours on end.”

Its two expansions made the game even better – and the whole package stands as one of my favourite games of this generation, if not ever. That’s despite it having mostly middling combat. If you’ve yet to play The Witcher 3 or sipped its expansions, the Game of the Year Edition (which, in some territories will be called The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Complete Edition) then you should probably pick this up.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
