The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine screenshot

CD Projekt Red, despite a few blunders, has been absolutely tremendous when it comes to their post-launch support. The Witcher 1 was practically recreated with the free Enhanced Edition update and The Witcher 2 received a whole bunch of new content and quality of life changes with its free upgrade, so it shouldn't come as much of a surprise to hear that they are doing something similar for The Witcher 3.

However, while the previous Enhanced Editions were just updates, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Game of the Year Edition seems to be a stand-alone title that contains all of the available DLC. Whether its going to bring any new features or content, I don't know, but given CDPR's track record I wouldn't go as far as to discount it.

The only thing I can tell you for a fact right now is that the GOTY Edition will be arriving for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One, as noted by the German classification board. On the other hand, if you're interested in rumors, a "separate source" has told Eurogamer that the release date is set for August 28. If this is true, it will most likely mean that the GOTY Edition will not bring with it many new features, simply because there wouldn't be enough time for CDRP to develop them given that they've only recently wrapped up work on Blood and Wine.

Speaking of which, if you own The Witcher 3 I would strongly suggest you grab Blood and Wine and give it a spin. As I've mentioned in my review (spoiler-free), its one of the best pieces of DLC I've ever played and a worthy sendoff to Geralt and possibly the Witcher series as well.
