You thought you were just buying a game, but if you're getting the Xbox One Collector's Edition of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, you're getting all kinds of good junk. Not one, but two card decks, a medallion, stickers, maps, an art book, and more. Oh, and Geralt battling a griffin as a statue. I don't know what you're going to do with all of that sh*t when finally run out of space from buying collector's editions, but there it is. 

The card game is a big deal -- a game in itself. Gwent is an in-game...uh, game, but you're getting a physical version in this Collector's Edition. Good stuff.

There was some drama (over 900 comments!) over these goodies coming only with the Xbox One version in the comments section of the official unboxing, and CD Projekt has addressed that. See below for details on that.

 

Looking at the heated comments, I believe that our announcement of the physical addition of two decks of Gwent cards and a cloth map, requires a further word from us.


Here at CD Projekt Red, we always put gamers first. Our PC versions are released DRM-free, we bend over backwards to give you the most beefed up editions of our games (be it standard or Collector's), and we deliver the same game, regardless of platform or version you buy. Moreover, we promised not have any exclusive DLCs, neither per platform nor per retailer, and we do stand by our promise--nothing has changed, nor will change in this regard.

Don't get me wrong, I do understand that these extra items might be desirable for Witcher fans playing the game on other platforms. However, as we are not offering any platform or retail exclusive DLCs or any other form of gameplay differentiation, we do have to find other ways to support our partners. We are also providing special pre-order items for certain retailers around the world, including Witcher comic books, posters, steel books or medallions. Funnily enough, we did not notice any heated comments on the pre-order specials.

What is the reason? Why are we doing this? We need the support of partners to make our game visible worldwide. This should hopefully translate to better sales, which will in consequence allow us to do what we have been doing for the last 10 years, i.e. reinvest this money to make more great RPGs, while still sticking to our values.

If you still consider that adding two decks of Gwent cards and a map of the in-game world to the Xbox One CE equals us betraying our values and not fulfilling our promises, well, it does make us sad, but the final call is always yours to make.

Still, I do hope that what we offer is unique and we can ask you to give us the benefit of the doubt. We have more great things to announce for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in the coming months and I promise you won't be disappointed (yes, yes, there are no more exclusives coming).
