Developer CD Projekt Red today announced the release date for its upcoming RPG The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt. The game will be released on PC, PlayStation 4 and XBox One on February 24, 2015 as announced during a summer conference by the developer today. The developer also released the following trailer for The Witcher 3.
It’s immediately obvious that The Witcher 3 looks gorgeous; clearly the focus on next generation development in favour of cross generation development has allowed the team to push the extra power available on higher spec PCs and the PS4 + XBox One. It’s also worth nothing that all footage in the trailer is in-game. There’s lots to take from the new trailer for The Witcher 3 including fighting giant monsters, sailing across a torrid sea and some stunning lighting effects.
As if announcing the release date for The Witcher 3 and giving gamers a new trailer, developer CD Projekt Red also offered up information regarding the collectors edition of the game.
The Witcher 3 will release in two different physical editions: The Standard Edition and the Collectors Edition. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Standard Edition is pretty good value as far as basic versions of a game goes and contains the following;
- A Blu-ray disc with the game (Replaced by CDs on PC)
- Exclusive official soundtrack CD
- A developer-created “Witcher Universe – The Compendium”
- The Witcher 3 game map
- Unique sticker set
- Protective sleeve
The absolutely epic Collectors Edition for The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt contains all of the Standard Editions goodies, plus the following;
- A huge 33x24x26 cm 100% hand-painted of Geralt of Rivia battling a Griffin
- A collector grade Witcher medallion
- An exclusive “one-of-a-kind” SteelBook case
- A 200-page artbook
- Huge outer and inner Collector’s Boxes
