A Game Of The Year edition of CD Projekt RED’s The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was inevitable. The only real question was “When?” and as of a few days ago, even that’s been answered. August 30, which is really quite soon.

Going by the developer’s announcement, there’s nothing particularly special about the GOTY version, especially if you own the DLC-equipped PC version:

Game of the Year Edition includes the critically acclaimed base game, winner of over 250 GOTY awards and most lauded game of 2015 with over 800 awards in total, both expansion packs — Hearts of Stone & Blood and Wine — and every piece of downloadable content, as well as every update and improvement ever released.

For console players on the other hand, having a copy of the game with everything — including patches — is mighty convenient.

No hint of pricing, but I can’t imagine it being much more than the standard version’s retail price. In fact, a launch sale is entirely possible, so keep an eye out on GOG and Steam for that.

    • yeah but their Enhanced Editions then were like the HD remasters now but with some physical extras – this one would be more a Complete Edition since it didn’t really need an overhaul like the original :p

    • The Enhanced Editions provided major overhauls to the games, such as big new questlines in TW2 or a massive amount of bugfixes in the first game.

  • Cant wait for this to come out so I can pick it up in a few months time and play it again once Im over NMS, FFXV and BF1. Never got around to the DLCs which is a damn shame.
