While the studio didn’t divulge what the gameplay looks like or many details about what’s in store, it plans to give more sneak peeks during a live-stream event next week. 

The update will be free for gamers with old versions of the game. It is also in favor of PC players. The current generation version of The Witcher 3 will also include ray tracing, faster load times and free downloadable content inspired by the Netflix Inc. NFLX series The Witcher 2015, reported Engadget. 

Why It’s Important: In September 2020, CD Projekt Red announced the latest version of the game and planned to release it along with PS5 and Xbox Series X/S editions of Cyberpunk 2077 the following year. However, both release dates were delayed, the report noted. 

Netflix’s The Witcher prequel named Blood Origin, scheduled to arrive on Dec. 25, could entice more people toward the game as well.
