The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Goes Gold + Everything We Know Inside This Article

The Witcher 3 Gone Gold

CD Projekt RED have announced that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is ready to be pressed onto the Blu-Ray discs that will bring much joy to the crowds of gamers heavily anticipating its release and likely uploaded to Steam / GOG as well for the many PC Gamers equally excited for the upcoming AAA Action RPG title.

The developer has stated numerous times that they believe the game will graphically please players no matter which platform they choose to play on and obviously gamers are expecting it to shine the most on the Windows PC assuming you have the parts in your machine to make that possible. May 19, 2015 The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will release for PS4, Xbox ONE, and Windows PC with tons of open world features that could rival any game in the genre. If you missed it, check out the Dev Overview Video w/ Gameplay.

“-we literally spent tens of thousands of hours to turn all that into an adventure that will kick your ass and make you want to come for more.” – Direct Quote from CD Projekt RED’s Adam Badowski

Now that the title is gold the development of two newly announced expansion packs will continue forward. In Hearts of Stone there will be over 10 hours of No Man’s Land and Oxenfurt gameplay surrounding some sort of mysterious contract with Geralt as the main player and deception as a key theme.

The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt - Collector Edition

Blood and Wine is over 20 hours and instead introduces Geralt to an entire region called Toussaint where, again, secrecy is an occurring theme that will eventually be unfolded over the course of the expansion content.

It’s currently unknown what exactly will come of these expansions but CD Projekt RED feels our pain as to DLC not always living up to expectations and urges players to hold back if they have doubts. They even explicitly state there is no need to buy them now, but the options is there, and mark their intentions to draw from the earlier time of PC Gaming days when expansions really meant something substantial and were worth the dollar amount since they really added to the games.

Excerpt from the Official Press Release:

Hearts of Stone will premiere in October, while Blood and Wine is slated for release in the first quarter of 2016.

Both expansions will be available on all three platforms: Xbox One, PC, PlayStation 4.”

Editor’s Note: There will also be 16 Free DLCs for the game included for everyone.

The Witcher 3 Xbox ONE UK Bundle

In addition to all of this news revolving around The Witcher 3 we also now know that there will be Xbox ONE consoles being sold with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt included. This appears to be a Europe, Middle East, and Africa only thing for the time being and is being released on May 19, 2015 in the UK for £310 British Pounds (we thought they use Euros over there? So much for the New World Order 🙂 ). The price and release date for other countries has not yet been revealed. There will be a standard controller, HDMI cable, and power cord, with a standard black Xbox ONE console in the bundle and the game itself is going to be a digital voucher for download over Xbox LIVE as most bundles these days are.

The Witcher 3 - Wild Hunt - Gameplay Trailer

Cities, Towns, Mountains, Seas, Dungeons, Temples, Murder, Wealth, Controversy, and Demonic Monsters cover a living breathing world in the third Witcher game in which players brave the wild. Day and Night cycles, ever-changing terrain, and evolving economies based on the areas you clear populate the open world CD Projekt RED has to offer. But at the end of the day, the player still has their own choice of exactly how much justice, and exactly how much evil they will paint this world with.

Racism, Religion, and other heavy topics are discussed in today’s newest Gameplay Footage of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt which is coming to PS4, Xbox ONE, and Windows PC on May 19, 2015. This clip, as well as the game overall, is intended for a Mature audience and holds no punches as dark humor and justified violence rampage through in CD Projekt RED’s heavily anticipated follow up to the well praised open world, Action RPG series.

Take a look in this Gameplay Footage complete with developer overview reminiscent of when Rockstar Games first gave us the major details revolving around Grand Theft Auto V. In North America the console versions of The Witcher 3 will be distributed by WB Games, but on Steam the game will be self-published by the development studio CD Projekt RED themselves.

Take-Two Confirms Borderlands 3

Xbox One / PS4 Only ???

Just a month after Randy Pitchford confirmed the company was “ready to start” production on a new game in the franchise, Borderlands 3 has been confirmed. Xbox One and PlayStation 4 owners will get their own custom fitted Borderlands game according to new statements being made by Gearbox Software and Take-Two Interactive today who will also be bringing the originals to the next-gen platforms as well as their DLC packs in a bundle called Borderlands: The Handsome Collection. At this time we don’t know if the third entry in the series will appear or not on PS3 / 360 but so far this game is being touted as, at least according to PR statements, up to spec with what next-generation gamers expect out of a game. We assume that means 60 frames per second and slightly – moderately improved graphics as a minimum standard bar of entry.

New Just Cause 3 Screenshots

Perhaps the most exciting of this week’s announcements are the following glimpses at Just Cause 3 by development studio Avalanche Studios and publisher Square Enix, which PR statements claim won’t have micro-transactions and is designed to be a full experience without DLC required. Many have made that claim, but we’ll keep an open mind until we have reason to suspect otherwise with this. Originally, fans exploded in excitement as the reveal came in that the Just Cause franchise would make a return.

The vertical gameplay of the title has been expanded making an already large map seemingly even bigger, and new graphics face-lifts made possible by next-generation technology have been made to the game’s appearance. Now we have a bit more visual evidence to these teasers and claims. So far, things are looking great.

Excerpt from Official Press Release:

“it has been confirmed that the game will be set on a fictional Mediterranean island known as Medici with Rico Rodriguez set as the protagonist against the brutal control of dictator General Di Ravello”

Players can get their hands on Just Cause 3 some time this year on Windows PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4:

How Much Space Does Witcher 3 Take on PS4 ???

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt from the rigorously sturdy and virtuous video games development / publishing house CD Projekt RED with help from various publishing partners (including self-publishing as well as Warner Bros. distribution in North America on consoles) has been given a file size. On the Xbox One the file size is still unknown at this time, however, the PlayStation 4 version of the game will require a minimum of 50 Gigabytes to be downloaded and installed in full as confirmed by the PlayStation Store listing of the digital distribution version of the game. This game is set to be over 100 hours long, and is highly anticipated. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt launches on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC worldwide May 19, 2015 and is available for pre-order.

To see The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in action, take a look at this early HD Gameplay Footage:

SOE Sold Off By Sony

A lot of friends have asked for my opinions on this, so here we go. Sony Online Entertainment was a fantastic company that always tried to bring their true visions to life. That being said, no one knows why things never quite struck the right cord. Myself, I’ve had numerous run-ins with SOE that were both great and not-so-great.

I have a huge amount of respect for the designers at the company who always tried new ideas and really put their heart into attempting to make each game that SOE released great and worthwhile for real gamers and hardcore fans alike. As many websites have probably said by now, we can only hope for the best as the company continues to live on in a new form. We surely want to see the potential of these designers reach its full form regardless of what that says about how poorly Sony may have done managing this team.

SOE has been sold to independence by Sony and Sony Online Entertainment is no more. The company has now been renamed to Daybreak Games Company and has also been purchased by a primary investor making it a privately held entity belonging to video games development / publishing company Columbus Nova – and now free of restraints from being associated directly with Sony.

Daybreak Games SOE RealGamerNewz Sony H1Z1 Developer Nova

So many questions remain as to what this will mean for the future. What’s going to happen with H1Z1? Is this all because of what happened with H1Z1 thus far, or was it already long in the works before that? What will Daybreak Games make next, a MOBA game like SMITE? They’ve said they would like to go multi-platform now that they can, and this means also working on Xbox One games. Could it be possible that Microsoft will finally start to allow decent MMO games to release on their console platforms? Or maybe Daybreak Games will make something totally different and new specifically geared towards the Xbox crowd, something that this development studio isn’t typically known for – just because they now have the freedom to do so. We don’t know the answers to these questions, but wish Daybreak Games well in whatever they decide to produce – we look forward to trying it out for ourselves when the appropriate time comes.

New Gameplay: Naruto SHIPPUDEN: Ultimate Ninja STORM 4

So we came across some really low-quality, grainy footage of Naruto SHIPPUDEN: Ultimate Ninja STORM 4 and figured Bandai Namco must be streaming the game again. Luckily, this Official Gameplay Footage of an Early Development Build was released by Bandai Namco Games to save us from the second-hand footage that you would have been seeing instead had they not dropped the bomb on us. For fans of official Naruto work, this is the latest so sink your teeth in.

The Witcher 3 All DLC Expected to be FREE!!

witcher-3-game

Marcin Iwiński, co-founder and Joint CEO of CD PROJEKT RED had this to say about The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt and its planned downloadable content.

“We love games. We love collecting them, playing them, and everything connected to that experience. Every time we reach out for a new release, we expect to be taken care of. We expect support if we encounter any problems, we love updates constantly improving the experience, and we feel really special when we receive free content that gives us more than we initially paid for. It doesn’t have to be huge, it can be an awesome skin for a character, or an extra sword, or armor.”

“Unfortunately this treatment is quite rare these days. As gamers, we nowadays have to hold on tight to our wallets, as surprisingly right after release, lots of tiny pieces of tempting content materialize with a steep price tag attached. Haven’t we just paid a lot of cash for a brand new game? As CD PROJEKT RED, we strongly believe this is not the way it should work and, with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, we have decided to do it differently. Cutting to the chase, everyone who buys Wild Hunt will receive 16 specially prepared DLCs absolutely for free, regardless of platform.”

thw witcher

He continues on to say:

“You don’t have to pre-order, you don’t have to buy any special edition to get them — if you own a copy of Wild Hunt, they’re yours. This is our way of saying thank you for buying our game.” The free DLC for the Witcher 3 will work like this. If you own the game Digitally or physically, the DLC is free. As long as you own the game you can download the DLC at no charge. There are 16 DLC coming and on Febuary 25th the first 2 DLC will drop and will feature the Temerian Armor Set and a Beard and Hairstyle Set for Geralt (the main character.)

 

The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt will be available for Xbox ONE, PS4, and PC on Feb 24, 2015.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (AAA Next-Gen / PC RPG) Delayed

The Witcher 3

In an open letter from developer CD Projekt RED to gamers and shareholders, the studio has delayed the blockbuster RPG title The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt until February 2015.

Here is an excerpt of their press release:

“We recently reexamined what we had achieved thus far, and faced a choice about the game’s final release date. The decision we made was difficult, thoroughly considered, and ultimately clear and obvious. We could have released the game towards the end of this year as we had initially planned. Yet we concluded that a few additional months will let us achieve the quality that will satisfy us, the quality gamers expect from us. Consequently, we have set the release of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for February 2015.

Dear gamers – we know many of you would have liked to play The Witcher 3 sooner, as soon as possible, even. We’re sorry to make you wait longer than you, or we, initially assumed you would. At the same time, we believe the game will prove to be worth the wait and meet the expectations you have of us. We believe The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be an exceptional RPG, one of the best, providing many hours of wonderful entertainment.”

While this is definitely a disappointment to all of us at RGN we know CD Projekt Red wants to release a polished game that exceeds gamers expectations. With a projected 100 hours of content it comes as no surprise that great things may take time.

While we wait for this much anticipated title, check out some former coverage of the game on RGN:
