While New Game+ isn't an option for The Witcher 3 yet, it will be soon. But before you commit to another playthrough, you should know what will and won't transfer. CD Projekt RED has answers. New Game+ will bump you to level ...

The Witcher 3 is adding New Game+


It'll be free, of course
Jul 27
// Jordan Devore
Even if I don't end up starting a New Game+, I love knowing it's always an option. I had expected the feature to be in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, which I still haven't even begun (I'm only now on inFamous: Second Son, as far a...

Tabletop Simulator mod brings Gwent to the table

The Witcher 3 is pretty good, but let's be honest: it pales in comparison to the glory that is Gwent, the card game found within it. We all know that come December, any game of the year awards it gets will be for that silly l...

The Witcher 3's already been played for ten millennia or so


That's right -- 10,000 years
Jun 12
// Brett Makedonski
CD Projekt Red's The Witcher 3 is the type of game that you can sink a whole lot of hours into. Open-world role-playing games tend to run on the long side. It took testers 25 hours to speedrun it, after all. Couple that ...

// Brett Makedonski
Geralt doesn't always kill with this much flair. But, it's a special occasion! You only turn (level) 20 once, and it's worth celebrating. If a stylish decapitation and a body careening far into the sea is what you want, go for it. Treat yo'self, bud! Level up! [reddit]
