The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt gets an Xbox Series X|S makeover


The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Complete Edition Xbox

We have a general rule here at TheXboxHub when it comes to awarding our Game of the Year, and that is it cannot be considered if it is a simple next-gen patch. Which is a shame, because this next game would be in with a shout, even against Elden Ring. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Complete Edition is out now on Xbox Series X|S, PC and PlayStation 5.

Of course, The Witcher 3 should need no introduction. Widely regarded as one of the best games of all time, it is hard to believe over seven years since it first released. This next-gen patch will also the definitive edition of The Witcher 3 for returning players and newcomers. Best of all, if you own the game already, this patch will be free to download!

The Witcher 3 centres around the iconic Geralt of Rivia and his search for a child of prophecy. Join him on an epic journey as a monster hunter for hire.

The Xbox Series X|S patch doesn’t just bring a nice graphical improvement to The Witcher 3, although that is definitely present, but a host of new features too. Community mods, 4K textures, new environmental and weather effects, new quests inspired by The Witcher TV series, cross-progression saves and hundreds of quality-of-life changes. All in all, far more than a simple touch up for current generation consoles.

Both versions of the game are receiving the same Xbox Series X|S upgrade. If you just own the base game for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – found on the Xbox Store here for £24.99 – then aside from the DLC you will still get the same shiny new visuals. For the complete experience, there is The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Complete Edition, priced at £34.99. Whichever version you choose, you are sure to be in for one of the greatest gaming experiences ever. Let us know in the comments which one you will be choosing.
