The good folks over at CD Projekt Red have just announced that anyone who owns a copy of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on GOG can now easily upgrade it to the Game of the Year Edition. The offer is now available to those who already own the Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine expansion packs. Technically, owning both expansions means that you pretty much have all the available content, however, many GOG users have asked for a proper upgrade and CD Projekt definitely listened.
What’s more, those who already own The Witcher 3 and its expansions can expect to see the GOTY edition pop up alongside the regular version and not replace it. After all, Geralt has two swords so it makes sense that gamers should also have two different copies of The Witcher 3 in their library. Those who only own the base game are also eligible for the free upgrade, though they will first need to purchase the two expansions individually. In order to make the transition even easier, the game along with its expansions will be available at a discount for a limited time on GOG.
“Why are we doing this? Because we can (and because we are always thinking of ways to make your life a bit easier)!” reads a new post on GOG. “For those of you who use GOG Galaxy, your experience will be as simple as it was – you can install The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt with expansions and owned DLC with a single click and update it automatically. And if you don’t use GOG Galaxy yet, you will now have a choice between downloading the game and its expansions separately or as a single comprehensive package directly from the website.”
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is currently available for $40 while Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine go for $6.5 and $13, respectively. Again, if you already own the base game you can upgrade to the Game of the Year Edition just by purchasing the expansions, which are available at 35% off for existing owners, though only for the next 72 hours or so.
