CD Projekt RED kicked off its summer conference with the release date for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt -- it's hitting PC, PS4, and Xbox One simultaneously on February 24, 2015.

The standard edition includes the manual, a Witcher universe compendium, a game map, the soundtrack, and stickers at no additional cost. That's what they could fit in the box. The company also detailed the collector's edition, available by pre-order only, that contains a polystone statue, hardcover 200-age art book, wolf medallion, and a steelbook case.

The Witcher 3 is up for pre-order on GOG.com where you'll get a five percent discount per game for owning The Witcher and The Witcher 2. The digital edition comes with extras like a digital artbook, extended soundtrack, a download code for The Witcher: House of Glass comic book, Neverwinter Nights and its expansions, and two beta keys for The Witcher: Adventure Game.

Phew. A trailer was also shown during the conference and it's the new hotness.

CD Projekt RED promises no platform-exclusive content for The Witcher 3

I don't know about you guys but when I saw the post last week about how the "exclusive content" for Watch_Dogs was spread out, it really drove the point home as to how silly the pre-order bonuses situation has become. Do all ...

This week, I stop mucking around with condiments, pasta, and watercolors and just do a good old-fashioned drawing. The subject? Geralt of Rivia, The White Wolf, star of The Witcher books and games.

While drawing, I'm asked stupid questions by Bill Zoeker, who doesn't know anything about Witchers. Also, we eat very sour candies.
