After releasing The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Complete Edition for next-gen consoles this past December, CD PROJEKT RED has announced that the box release of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Complete Edition for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X will be arriving in retail stores in North America, Europe, and select territories across the world starting January 26, 2023.
Released on December 14th, 2022 as a free next-gen update for owners of the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC versions of the game, alongside a standalone next-gen digital purchase, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Complete Edition takes advantage of the extra power of modern gaming hardware to offer numerous visual and technical enhancements over the original.
For PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, which are now receiving a physical release of the game, these include Performance and Ray Tracing modes, support for AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution, faster loading times, and more. On PlayStation 5 the game also utilizes the advanced haptics and adaptive triggers of the DualSense controller, allowing players to further immerse themselves in the experience.
This next-gen version introduces items and quests inspired by The Witcher Netflix show, as well as the quality of life additions: new camera options, quick Sign casting, Photo Mode, cross-platform progression, map and UI tweaks, a selection of community-created mods integrated into the experience — among many others. The Complete Edition also comes with all previously released content for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt — the award-winning Hearts of Stone & Blood and Wine expansions, as well as 16 pieces of extra content.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Complete Edition free next-gen upgrade is available now digitally with its box release hitting stores on January 26!
