‘The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’ Game of the Year Version to Feature Formerly Released Free DLCs!

The critically-acclaimed and commercially successful role-playing game “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” has been bestowed early in 2016 with the ‘Game of the Year’ honors.

In order to send off the game with a big bang, Polish game developer CD Projekt Red has decided to release a ‘Game of the Year’ version of “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” which shall reportedly feature formerly released and free downloadable contents, cites the Parent Herald.

According to reports, the ‘Game of the Year’ edition of “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” would be made available on the PlayStation 4, the Xbox One, and the PC. It shall reportedly be released before the end of 2016.

However, the Polish game developer said that it will not be making the game’s version for the PlayStation Neo and the Microsoft Xbox Scorpio but the backward compatibility will take care of it and there shall be no support for a 4K resolution.

CD Projekt Red game director Konrad Tomaszklewicz confirmed the development of the ‘Game of the Year’ edition of “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” when he said in a previous interview that there are plans in motion for the title. He said that they will release more details, including the release date, in the future, notes Yibada.

Surpassing its predecessors

Since its release last year, “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” has amassed more than six million units sold, surpassing the feat of its predecessors, “The Witcher” and “The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings.”

The game is also credited as one of the most recognized and awarded in gaming history with more than 250 accolades during the annual Game of the Year awards.

“The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” has been widely popular among game enthusiasts. The Polish game developer successfully brought the main character Geralt of Rivia and his unique set of friends to life with realistic voice acting, storytelling and excellent character development.

It has also been confirmed that “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” shall be Geralt’s final adventure, which was a big let-down to the millions of fans of the game around the world.

Incidentally, the ‘Game of the Year’ version of “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” shall be added with two expansion packs “Hearts of Stone” and officially unveiled recently, “Blood and Wine.”

Gratitude to the game developer

Fans of “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” have been expressing their gratitude to Polish game developer CD Projekt Red for coming out with a standalone Gwent game recently.

The game is officially titled “Gwent: The Witcher Card Game” and according to CD Projekt Red co-founder Marcin Iwinski, the game development company has taken all the heart and energy from fans of “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” and put it into the development of the stand-alone Gwent game.

In a recent statement, Iwinski said that the Gwent game was made possible because of the fans because they all contributed in supercharging CD Projekt Red to really push forward and develop the game.

Iwinski thanked all “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” and Gwent fans for their efforts in inspiring CD Projekt Red to do it including the flood of e-mails, calls, forum posts, and everything else which the co-founder simply described as crazy.

He also recalled that there was a moment when literally everything was beeping, buzzing, vibrating, and otherwise communicating only one idea – Gwent or nothing.

Iwinski said that they knew what the fans really wanted upon seeing at least 40 fan-made versions of Gwent, where people printed their own cards and made real wooden playing boards, which he says is a clear manifestation of positive madness on a Gwent game.

The beta of the Gwent card game is now released and Iwinski said fans and gamers should be generous enough to share their thoughts on the game so that the development team can improve on it prior to its full release.

Iwinski called on fans to help CD Projekt Red make the game truly theirs by helping them improve it the way fans would like it.
