According to a statement posted on the official Witcher site, the new edition of Wild Hunt will feature improved, ray-traced visual effects and faster load times. It will also come bundled with all previous DLC and story expansions.

While the next-gen edition will be made available as a standalone release, CDPR has stated that it will be offering free upgrades to all owners of The Witcher 3 on PS4, PC, and Xbox One. The Nintendo Switch edition, however, was not referenced in the statement.
