The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Is Getting A Free Next Gen Upgrade
Keep Your Coin, This One Is Free
In news so exciting that it kept me awake last night, CD Projekt Red has announced the legendary The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be making its way to next-gen consoles, free for those who already own the original game.
As per a post on the CD Projekt Red site, the update “will feature a range of visual and technical improvements — including ray tracing and faster loading times — across the base game, both expansions (Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine), and all extra content’.
Despite being over five years old now, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has aged like a fine wine, still holding a special place in the heart of many gamers, often charting high on Steam and Twitch, due to its rich storytelling and the freedom of its open-world. This boosted version may also attract a new audience who became interested in the franchise through the hugely successful Witcher series on Netflix, starring Henry Cavill and Henry Cavill’s buns.
The new edition of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will release standalone for purchase on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and PC, as well as a free update for those who already own a copy on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, though it is unclear when.
