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.

    Awesome. I dont own the expansions, and I want to play it on Steam rather. So I guess I’m about to double dip for the first time! Or is it 1.5x dip?

      Do it. Heart of Stone’s story line is just as good as the Bloody Baron’s, and Blood & Wine is a fantastic ending to the series.

      I got the PS4 copy as well as the first expansion, Im considering getting this one too just for the hell of it. CDPR are the first developer I am willing to pre-order and throw money at to play their games. If the rest of the industry followed CDPRs example that would be pretty much as close to Nirvana as the Gaming Community is going to get.

    Just finished Blood and Wine, I feel like I’ve lost a family member finishing that story. Only this one is a family member I actually like…

    I’d literally buy this, even though I already own it, just to give CDPR my money. They can have it!
