The long-awaited new-gen versions of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt could be dropping as soon as later today, according to a recently discovered PEGI leak.
CD Projekt RED announced earlier this year that the fantasy RPG would be coming to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S along with improved visuals, enhanced loading times, and a handful of special cosmetic DLC based on the Netflix show. Oh, and it'll come with the Hearts Of Stone and Blood And Wine expansions included, and be a free upgrade for anyone who already owns the game. As far as excuses to replay the game for a fifth time go, this is up there.
Take a look at The Witcher 3's best trailer below!
"Developed to take advantage of powerful video-game hardware, the next generation edition of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for PC, Xbox Series X, and PlayStation 5 will feature a range of visual and technical improvements," CDPR wrote in a press release at the time. "Including ray tracing and faster loading times -across the base game, both expansions, and all extra content."
While CDPR has yet to officially confirm when exactly this enhanced version of The Witcher 3 is set to launch, the PEGI ratings board (thanks, Gematsu) recently updated the games RPG's age rating info to include PS5 and Xbox Series X. It also specifies a 19/10/21 release for these versions.
This could be a simple mistake on the part of PEGI, of course, but CDPR did previously indicate that The Witcher 3 would hit new-gen consoles in the second half of 2021. A stealth-drop of one of the greatest games of all time on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S would certainly be an incredible move, so let's just hope there's something to this. If the leaked date is accurate, we will of course find out sooner rather than later.
