CD Projekt Red had earlier confirmed that the physical edition would include a DVD with the original game. Additionally, the edition will have the Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine expansions. The bundle will also include every official DLC and upgrade that CD Projekt Red has released over the past seven years. Additionally, the edition will have a free next-generation update with dozens of aesthetic, performance, and technological improvements.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt first launched on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in 2015. The current-generation console version was launched last year in December. The Xbox Series X/S and PS5 updates were released as a single purchase. Players who had purchased the game on PC and last-gen consoles received a free patch. The game’s update had a rough development with many delays and a change in the developer.
The physical boxed edition of The Witcher 3 will now be available at your nearest retail store as of January 26, depending on your location.
