A number of European retailers have listed The Witcher 3: Enhanced Edition as launching in May. The Enhanced Edition follows in the footsteps of the previous Witcher titles, both of which had post-launch iterations bundling in a bunch of patches and additional content. They both fundamentally changed how their respective games played, with significant additions and key gameplay and performance fixes.
CD Projekt RED has denied such a thing even exists of course, saying "There's no Enhanced Edition of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt that we are aware of, this is some kind of error that we will look into. Thanks!"
There’s a couple of explanations for this. Either the stores in question (Belgian store Smartoys and French e-tailer e-Leclerc) rustled up a couple of pages in expectation of it being announced, or they’ve let the cat out of the bag early.
It's practically inevitable that some sort of Enhanced Edition or Game of the Year Edition of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt would arrive, so this would come as little surprise. If such a thing did exist it would surely bundle in all 16 free post-launch DLC packs, along with the two expansions included in the Expansion Pass - Hearts of Stone and Blood & Wine.
As always an Enhanced Edition will smart a bit for Season Pass buyers, who will have forked out considerably more for their complete versions. Still, you can’t argue The Witcher 3 has been one of the best value for money propositions in years; I’ve still got a few rogue quests to mop up in this epic adventure.
And GD'ers been holding out all this time for a Game of the Year version of The Witcher 3?
