first_imgLet us reiterate- this is one those times when a Game of the Year tag is completely worthy. The Witcher 3 is arguably the best game of this generation, and if you’ve been missing out you will soon have no more excuses. The only thing you have to lose is every minute of your free time for the next few months!In other Witcher news, the hugely anticipated standalone Gwent, a multiplayer version of the addictive card game from the series, is on its way. A beta was supposed to be sent out to waiting players next month but CD Projekt delivered the sad news yesterday that it has been delayed a month to October 25. But the company is not known for rushing out its products until they are done, and as the delays for The Witcher 3 showed they are generally worth the wait.Considering how much fun Gwent is in the main game, this multiplayer game has the potential to completely take over our lives, just when we thought we were out. If you have yet to sign up for the beta, you can do so here. If you waited on picking up The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, there’s no two ways about it- you missed out one of the finest game experiences of 2015.But it turns out that waiting made sense for the more budget conscious of you, because you will soon be able to jump into the definitive edition. It was officially announced today that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Game of the Year Edition will release on PS4, Xbox One, and PC this August 30, quelling months of rumors.This GOTY version will come with the most recent patch, which improves the already wonderful game in numerous ways, as well as every bit of DLC and the two major expansions Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine. This effectively puts the game up above the 150 hour gameplay mark. The expansions in particular add dozens of hours of quests, and Blood and Wine stresses the fun and silly moments to be had with the series, acting as the perfect send-off for Geralt of Rivia. If you haven’t played those two you’re really missing out on the true ending. <>last_img
