5 Reasons Why The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt Complete Edition Is Worth Your Attention

Featured Video

The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt Complete Edition is upon us and whilst you may be thinking to yourself; “why would I buy The Witcher 3 yet again after first purchasing it seven years ago and subsequently owning it on multiple platforms?” I am glad to report that there are many reasons to revisit this modern gaming masterpiece.


In fact, there are specifically five reasons for you to revisit The Continent and check out this upgraded version of the game, (which is also available as a free upgrade for players who own the game on PS4 or Xbox One,) and we are going to list them down below:


The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt Complete Edition is available December 14th on PC, PS5, and Xbox consoles.

5. New Content

Believe it or not, there is still brand new content being developed for this seven-year-old-title. Specifically, this new content consists of a brand new quest and suit of armour, inspired by the popular Netflix adaption. Whilst it may be tinged with a hint of sadness, given that Henry Cavill announced his departure from that show earlier in the year, this is still a pretty neat inclusion and will likely be a major reason for folks to pick up this new version of the game.


4. Upgraded Visuals

As if the world of The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt was not stunning enough to look at already, a new visual overhaul has been implemented in this new version of the game, providing even more graphical fidelity. Not only that, but the newly implemented photo mode allows players to really appreciate the breath-taking visuals in a way which was not possible until now.

3. Refined Gameplay

Thankfully, CD Projekt Red have not only bolstered the visuals of The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt, they have also tightened up its gameplay mechanics. This includes a new third-person camera, which is much closer to Geralt than the previous camera angle was. There has also been an update to the controls for quick sign-casting. Players can now hold R2 and use the face buttons to switch signs or spells, replacing the old radial menu and ensuring that combat is never slowed down.

2. Implementation of Mods

One of the greatest things about The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt is its modding community. It is a stroke of genius then that a selection of the best mods have been officiated by CDPR and have been included in the next-gen upgrade. These mods include The Nitpickers mod by chuckcash and The Witcher 3 HD Reworked Project by HalkHogan.
