UPDATE 19/05/22: Developer CD Projekt RED’s global community director has further clarified what players will be getting in this new version of PS5, that being, well, everything. Even up to the recently released DLC inspired by the Netflix show.
The news comes as the original version of the critically acclaimed fantasy-RPG celebrates its 7th anniversary. Yep, it’s really been that long; The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt originally launched for PS4, PC, and Xbox One on May 19, 2015!
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will feature a number of improvements for Sony and Microsoft’s latest home consoles, including ray-tracing and faster loading times, taking full advantage of the extra horsepower afforded by PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.
In addition to the base version of The Witcher 3, the new-gen versions of the game also include all downloadable content and expansions, and will be issued as a free upgrade to existing owners of the original game.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is out in Q4 2022 for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.
