The Witcher 3 Complete Edition announced for PS5, with free upgrade for PS4 owners

By Sean Carey,
The Witcher 3 is getting the next-gen treatment. CD Projekt Red has announced The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition for PS5, Xbox Series X and PC. Best of all, if you already own a PS4 copy of the game, you'll get a PS5 version for free.

June 11th

The Complete Edition utilises next-gen hardware found in the PS5, meaning we should see some nifty visual improvements. We'll soon be able to, once again, journey through old Geralt's stomping ground, but with the benefits of ray tracing. Thanks to the PS5's SSD, we can also expect much faster load times. This new edition also comes bundled with The Witcher 3's two expansions, Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine, plus all the extra DLC that came to The Witcher 3.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition can be purchased as a standalone edition. However, CD Projekt Red is generously offering those who own a PS4 copy of the game a free upgrade to the PS5 version via an update.

The Complete Edition is coming to PS5, Xbox Series X and PC in 2021.

Update: CD Projekt Red has now confirmed the free upgrade applies to both physical and digital copies of the game. If you own just the standard version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, you'll still get a free upgrade to the Complete Edition.
