The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt is right at the top of our list of games of 2015, and we can't wait to play it. With just two weeks to go, we're finding out more about what will happen when you do get that shiny disk.
Firstly it was confirmed that the game will receive a day one patch to bring it up to the level of polish expected by CD Project RED. That's not surprising at all, and it remains to be seen just how large that update will be.
There has also been some news on the PC version of the game, particularly how you go about getting attitional content. It seems every copy of the game will come with its own unique code for the website GOG.com. There you'll be able to register in order to unlock your digital backup of the game which you can download anywhere.
It's a clever idea, and should help draw more people to GOG, as you'll also be using this service to download bonus material like the soundtrack and art book as well as 16 free DLC packs which have been promised to uses.
CD Project RED also wanted to confirm their commitment to a DRM free product - you're free to play the game without logging into GOG, with the code only used to unlock additional extras. And you'll never need to actually be online while playing the game, though a small piece of code will have to be downloaded for those who are playing very close to launch, as a way to stop the game from leaking. Check out more from that FAQ here.
Overall, its sounding like the developers have all their bases covered having made the most of a couple of significant delays which saw the games release move from late 2014 to mid 2015. If we can get a polished title in the end, that's all that really matters.
The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt is on Xbox One, PS4 and PC on the 19th of May 2015.
