Geralt of Rivia is going to be making a spectacular, next-gen debut now that CD Projekt Red has unveiled all these new details about The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt along with GOG's new game client.
CD Projekt Red has announced a ton of new details for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and has unveiled its DRM-free GOG Galaxy game client. First, the Poland-based developer announced that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will officially launch on Feb. 24, 2015 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Accompanying this Witcher 3 announcement was an absolutely stunning trailer (above) that CD Projekt Red made for E3, which depicts Geralt getting into all sorts of epic fights with some of the greatest in-game graphics we have ever seen.
The Collector's Edition of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will contain a 200-page art book, a steel display case, a replica of Geralt's wolf medallion along with a massive, hand-painted statue depicting Geralt fighting a griffin. The Collector's Edition of The Witcher 3 will also give you a copy of the standard edition, which also contains the game's official soundtrack, a detailed map of the in-game world, a set of stickers, a protective sleeve and a book, Witcher Universe - The Compendium.
The digital edition of The Witcher 3 will be granted a five percent-off discount on GOG for those who have purchased the other games of the series through the same client. Witcher 3's digital edition will be DRM-free and will include a digital art book, exclusive videos and a digital version of the map that comes with the standard edition. GOG will also be throwing in an extended soundtrack, wallpapers, additional artwork, a digital Witcher comic, a free copy of the classic RPG Neverwinter Nights along with two beta keys for The Witcher: Adventure Game. Red Projekt said that this card-based, spin-off title will be eventually coming out for the PC, iOS and Android formats.
Finally, CD Projekt Red announced that its subsidiary company, Good Old Games, will be launching GOG Galaxy, a DRM-free online game client. GOG Galaxy will act similar to Uplay, Origins and Steam as an online, digital retailer of PC games. More importantly, it will offer full cross-play regardless of what client others are using and will automatically update your games for you.
