The Witcher 3 Game of The Year Edition out tomorrow along with a new patch

Soon, Geralt's journey will come to an end and he'll finally have a chance to rest his weary soul for a spell. CD Projekt Red is releasing a The Witcher 3: Game of the Year Edition tomorrow, compiling all of his adventures and DLC over the past year into a single $50 package. Additionally, a new patch brings the game up to version 1.30, and adds a suite of bug fixes to give everything one more coat of polish. 

If you haven't had a chance to play The Witcher 3 yet, the Game of the Year Edition combines the base game, Wild Hunt, along with both of its brilliant expansions, Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine, all on a single disc and easily totaling several hundred hours of content that's all worth exploring. To commemorate the occasion, CD Projekt Red has crafted a final Game of the Year Edition trailer for you to watch.  

Patch 1.30 includes a series of big fixes and quality of life updates, which include "tweaks to loot randomization", fixes for broken quests or weird edge cases, and "a fresh look" Vimme Vivaldi. Nothing earth-shattering, but this is probably the last bit of content made for The Witcher 3 before the team moves on to Cyberpunk 2077, so soak it up while you can. This patch will be included on the Game of the Year Edition disc, as well as digitally for current Witcher owners. You can read the full changelog here

With more than 800 awards (including the runner-up prize in our own 2015 Game of the Year awards), this aptly-named edition of The Witcher 3 is the definitive version of one of the greatest action-RPGs ever made. If you've been holding out, now's your chance to dive in. Besides, you gotta get your practice in now for when Gwent: The Witcher Card Game hits open beta soon on PC and Xbox One.
