The Witcher 3 Game Of The Year Edition Will Keep You Very Busy

For those of you who have held off on buying The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt this long, your patience is being rewarded in the form of a Game of the Year edition boasting loads of extra content that should keep you hunting monsters and saving lives for hours and hours on end.

So how much content are we talking about here? Well, according to the developers, this complete edition of The Witcher 3 should clock in at about 150 hours of gameplay. That will vary, obviously, depending on the type of player you are and how much side content you want to dive into, but it's certainly an impressive estimate for anyone looking to get as much bang for their buck as humanly possible.

Earlier today, CD Projekt Red confirmed that not only is the massive Witcher 3 - Game of the Year edition going to pack in every piece of DLC, both free and previously paid for, but you'll actually be able to get it in your hot little hands very soon. This most epic version of Witcher 3 will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC come August 30, so you've only got a couple more weeks to wait through before taking the plunge. Take a look at all the goodness you can expect from this special edition.

Nowadays, it feels like just about every game you can imagine comes out with a Game of the Year edition. It's especially fun seeing that title tagged to games that weren't particularly well received when what they really should say is, quite simply, "Complete Edition."

That's not the case with Witcher 3, however, as oodles of game sites, publications and award shows pegged it as the top title back in 2015. And since the game's launch, not only has the developer released a couple of equally beloved chunks of meaty DLC, but they've also thrown in a whole bunch of free content just to support the community that supported the game.

All of that stuff is being included in the Game of the Year edition, too, including the major DLC chapters, Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine.

And now that the Game of the Year edition of Witcher 3 is ready to roll, that means the game is finally, at long last, complete. It doesn't look like they'll be including any special content exclusive to this version of the game, so those of you who have already plowed through Witcher 3 and all of its extra content don't have to feel like you're missing out on anything.

For everyone else, though, now would be a good time to take the plunge while knowing that you're getting everything CD Projekt Red wanted you to experience in a single package.
