The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition Announced for Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5; Free Upgrade from Current Gen

The Witcher III

CD Projekt have announced The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be heading to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, along with a free upgrade for the current generation.

Mutated and trained from childhood to be a monster hunter, take down your foes with a flurry of blades and magic in this open-world action RPG; all while dealing with conspiracy, alliances, and love.

Now, CD Project have confirmed the game will not only be coming to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X (and possibly a PC re-release under as a Complete Edition), but the game will support a free upgrade for those who already own the game on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

“We’re working on the next generation edition of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt!

Developed to take advantage of the most powerful gaming hardware, the next-gen edition of the game will feature a range of visual and technical improvements — including ray tracing and faster loading times — across the base game, both expansions, and all extra content.

The next generation edition of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will release as a standalone purchase for PC, Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, as well as a free update for everyone who already owns the game on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.”

You can find the full rundown (via GOG) below.

You are The Witcher, professional monster hunter, a killer for hire. Trained from early childhood and mutated to gain superhuman skills, strength and reflexes, witchers are a distrusted counterbalance to the monster-infested world in which they live. You are a drifter, always on the move, following in the footsteps of tragedy to make other people’s problems your own – if the pay is good. You are now taking on your most important contract yet: to track down the child of prophecy, a living weapon, a key to save or destroy this world. You will make choices that go beyond good & evil, and you will face their far reaching consequences.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a story-driven next-generation open world role-playing game, set in a troubled and morally indifferent fantasy universe. Built for endless adventure, the massive open world of The Witcher sets new standards in terms of size, depth and complexity. You will traverse a vast open world, rich with merchant cities, dangerous mountain passes, and forgotten caverns to explore. It’s survival of the fittest – deal with treasonous generals, devious witches and corrupt royalty to provide dark and dangerous services, then invest your rewards to upgrade your equipment, or spend them away on pleasures of the night.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is available for Windows PC (via GOGOrigin, and Steam), Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. In case you missed it, you can read our review for the base game here. We highly recommend it! In fact, it was Game of the Year 2015!
