Now Playing: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Game of the Year Edition Launch Trailer

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

CD Projekt Red today released a new trailer for The Witcher 3's Game of the Year Edition, which comes out tomorrow, August 30.

Given that the new version is aimed at newcomers, this video sets up the game's story and main character, Geralt, and shows off some of the action players will find. Additionally, there is a look at the Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine expansion content, which is also featured in the new package.

Also included with The Witcher 3's Game of the Year--which is called the Complete Edition in some regions--are its 16 pieces of free DLC including smaller things like costumes and items. The package will go for $50 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Also arriving tomorrow is a new patch for The Witcher 3 that makes a series of fixes and improvements. You can see the complete 1.3 patch notes here. The Game of the Year comes with the 1.3 changes out of the box, so players won't have to install this before getting started.

GameSpot named The Witcher 3 our 2015 Game of the Year. The game took home Game of the Year honors at a number of awards events, including the SXSW Gaming Awards and the Game Developers Choice Awards. The new trailer mentions that the game received more than 800 awards across numerous categories.

In other news about The Witcher, developer CD Projekt Red has announced its financial results for the first half of 2016. Sales were down significantly due to the tough comparison to last year when The Witcher 3 launched.

And this is why I NEVER buy games on launch day and always buy on Amazon during Black Friday. I can bet I'll get this game for $20 this November.

@StonerDemon: just make sure you get it! The game gives you 200h+ of RPG and rich content.

@jgui: Oh dude, I'll definitely do!! In the meantime I'll be playing the Ni-Oh beta, with that suspiciously similar looking protagonist hahaha... by the way, the game is really good and it's only a beta!

@StonerDemon: holy crap! The dude looks almost exactly like Geralt of Rivia. lol

@jgui: I read the other day that Ni-Oh has been in development for almost 10 years, so from that point of view, maybe it's actually Geralt the one who looks similar to the Ni-Oh dude hehehe :D

@StonerDemon: Naahhh. Geralt of Rivia, the White Wolf was created by Andrzej Sapkowski back in the 90's ;)

@jgui: Oooh you're right! The Witcher is actually a very old franchise. I forgot :D

I wish I hadn't bought the regular edition when it went on sale because I've still not had time to play it.

was just gonna pick this game up yesterday, but decided not to. Glad I waited couple days to get everything for a lot cheaper than its showing at the moment.
