The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has been out on the PC for almost six years: its grand finale, the Blood and Wine DLC, has been around for over five years. Despite its advanced age, there is new content on the way: a “next-generation update” will arrive later this year for the Xbox Series X / S, PlayStation 5 and PC, and there will be some new DLC-based content in the Also Netflix series.
The new generation of Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will arrive on PS5, Xbox Series X / S and PC this year. Here's a look at our updated cover. Spoiler alert: We have also prepared some free DLC inspired by @witchernetflix 🤭More info soon! pic.twitter.com/Hs7LwWzUAtJuly 9, 2021
“Sooner” there will be more information about the new content, though, if that means later today or later this year, someone assumes it at this time.

The addition of new items is unprecedented: CD Projekt released 16 free DLC packs after the release of The Witcher 3, including the new missions, costumes, contracts, Gwent letters and more. It’s weird that new content is coming out again for a six-year-old game, yes, but I guess it can be argued that the next-generation version is “new”.
Regardless of all this, the new content is free (I'm a big fan of the free one) and while it may not be enough to justify another game (or maybe yes?) will certainly be a good advantage for newcomers to Geralt’s video game adventures. No specific release date has been announced for the next generation edition of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, but if in doubt, CD Projekt has clarified that it will be free upgrade for everyone who already has the game. I've contacted the studio for more information on what's new, and I'll update if I can.
If you can’t wait for free content, here’s how to make the Geralt video game look like Netflix Geralt with a couple of modifications.
