'The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt' Unboxing: Check Out Everything In The Collector's Edition Box, Pre-Order Now [VIDEO]
While you may be looking forward to the digital edition of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, which itself comes with tons of goodies, the amount of stuff in the physical box is staggering. A statue, a map, a soundtrack, and tons more will be yours to display.
Now, if you do decide to go for the digital edition it's probably best to go through developer CD Projekt RED's other baby, GOG.com. It's good to own the company that's distributing your own game because you can load it up with lots of extras and even drop the price. Right now it's 15% off if you pre-order it, a mere $50.99. If you own the Witcher 1 and 2 on GOG.com, it's even more of a discount- 20% off, or $47.99. And really, why don't you own those games yet? They're two of the best RPGs of all time!
The game comes completely drm-free- without any sort of copy protection, because it is your game. What's more- if you pre-order you will get into the multiplayer closed beta test for The Witcher Adventure Game, the PC version of the board game. This will be available this summer and it will give you two so you play with a friend.
They will also give you Neverwinter Nights for immediate download, a bonus digital comic of The Witcher: House of Glass, an extended Soundtrack with four exclusive tracks, a digital artbook, artworks, hd wallpapers, avatars, bonus videos and a world map. Phew.
That's all digital, of course. Buy the physical blu-ray, even the standard edition, and you'll get a bunch of goodies. It's something CD Projekt RED started with the Xbox 360 version of The Witcher 2 and it's nice to see them continue with it here! Here are the contents of the standard edition:
- A Blu-ray™ Disc with the game (DVDs on PC)
- An exclusive CD with the official soundtrack
- The official, developer-created "Witcher Universe - The Compendium"
- A beautiful, detailed map of the in-game world
- A set of unique stickers
- A stylish, protective sleeve
Spring for the Collector's Edition box and you get the following:
- All the contents from the standard edition of the game
- A giant, 33x24x26 cm (10"), 100% hand painted, Polystone figure of Geralt of Rivia battling a Griffin
- An exquisite, collector-grade Witcher medallion
- A one-of-a-kind SteelBook™ box
- A two-hundred-page artbook, containing breathtaking art from the game
- Huge outer and inner Collector's Boxes you can store your Witcher merchandise in!
Check the video below for a look at everything. Even if you just decide to buy the game, you're going to get what looks to be the first true next-gen RPG. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt hits Xbox One, PS4 and PC next February 24.
