'The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt' For PS5 And Xbox Series X|S Still This Year, Free Netflix DLC Planned

by Rainier on July 9, 2021 @ 2:45 p.m. PDT

Marking the final installment in the action RPG trilogy, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt combines decision-based storytelling flair with a living open world larger than any other in modern RPG history.

Open-world, free-roaming exploration is an adventure in itself as the player will gallop through war-ravaged lands, sail misty waters and track down dangerous beasts for money.

An improved combat system will allow players to feel like a real monster-hunter, a witcher who uses his superior senses and fighting skills to survive in a dark fantasy world--while he embarks on a quest to save his loved ones.

The new core mechanics of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt immerse the player in the experience completely, with no Quick Time Events, only intuitive RPG gameplay.

During WitcherCon CD Project RED revealed that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt next-gen update is coming to PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC this year, and that it is also working on some free DLCs inspired by The Witcher Netflix TV series (such as Geralt's armor and more to be revealed at a later time)

Developed to take advantage of powerful video-game hardware, the next generation edition of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for PC, Xbox Series X|S and PS5 will feature a range of visual and technical improvements — including ray tracing and faster loading times — across the base game, both expansions, and all extra content. 

The next generation edition of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be available as a standalone purchase on PC, Xbox Series X and PS5, and as a free update for current owners of the game on PC, Xbox One or PS4. 

Key Features:

    • Hunt down a wide range of exotic monsters from savage beasts prowling the mountain passes to cunning supernatural predators lurking in the shadows of densely populated towns.

    • Traverse a fantastical open world: explore forgotten ruins, caves and shipwrecks, trade with merchants and dwarven smiths in cities, and hunt across the open plains, mountains and seas.

    • Make choices that go beyond good & evil, and face their far-reaching consequences.
