The Witcher 3 release date announced

The Witcher 3 release date announced

The Witcher games are based on a series of books by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski.

CD Projekt Red has announced that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is due for release on February 24 2015.

The developers have unveiled details of the game’s physical editions with the standard box shipping with a soundtrack CD, a map of the game’s world, a set of stickers and the developer-created Witcher universe compendium alongside the game disc itself.

A collector’s edition will also be launched including a 10” hand painted figurine of series protagonist Geralt of Rivia fighting a Griffin, a wolf’s head medallion and a 200-page artbook.

A new trailer for the game has also gone live.

Pre-ordering the game on GOG.com will also give players a digital Witcher comic book, a copy of the classic Neverwinter Nights and it will grant access to The Witcher Adventure Game, a digital version of CD Projekt Red’s Witcher-themed board game that is entering closed beta access later this year. UK customers will also receive just just under £10 in GOG bonus codes as the game is more expensive in the UK than in the US.

The WItcher 3: Wild Hunt is being developed for the Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC. Based on a series of books by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski, the first game in the series was originally a PC only title with a console version planned by ultimately scrapped.

Even though I preferred DA:2 over TW2 (i know, i know, shame on me), i've just pre-ordered this straight away as opposed to mulling over DA:I which i may get eventually.

Not that I have any particular issue with EA/Origin, but when CDPR go out of the way to reward their user base, i've bought it solely on principal (and the knowledge that the game will still be amazing, obviously).

One thing not mentioned in the article is that there's an extra discount for owning the original TW1 as well as TW2. They need to be registered on GOG.com for the free backup they provide, but that just requires you to input the CD Key. I registered both of my copies which were originally bought on Steam with no issue.

All in all I ended up paying £36.50 which is quite a lot less than the £60 of DA:I i've been considering.

@vdbswong - Not to forget the $15.98 in free game vouchers for us here in the UK. It's good to see CDPR reward their most loyal customers too - this is how pre-ordering should be done.

really do love CDPR's release agenda, my pc stutters on w2 so i doubt 3rd will run but very tempted to pre-order anyway for the digital boardgame. pre-ordered w1, got the lovely (and very reasonably priced at £25) physical copy of w2 with a bunch of extras and read all the books - question isn't whether to buy w3 but whether to get it on physical or digital.
