The Witcher 3 Pre-Order extras are Live

When CD Projekt RED first showed of gameplay of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, they revealed some of the pre-order incentives you could get.

Yesterday, some of those incentives were announced and went live. If you pre-order The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on, you will get a plethora of extras, including:

  • The Witcher Adventure Game. Not part of the main game, this smaller game will let players explore the world of The Witcher with friends. This code will allow access for the Beta that will be arriving sometime this summer.
  • Dungeons and Dragons: Neverwinter Nights. Today, you can download Neverwinter Nights and all three major expansions for free.
  • The Witcher: House of Glass: House of Glass is a digital comic book that expands on the world of The Witcher. This is out now for free.
  • Extended Soundtrack: The four exclusive tracks for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is out now to download for free. The full soundtrack will be released when the game launches.
  • The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Artbook: Available when the game launches, this digital artbook will have over 200 pages of exclusive art and behind-the-scenes commentary from the team at CD Projekt RED
  • The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Artwork, HD wallpapers, Avatars, and bonus videos. All these are available now. The World Map will be released at launch.

CD Projekt RED promises that there will be even more things to come when you pre-order The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Regardless of whether you pre-order by GOG or Steam, CD projekt RED does have a Loyalty Plan where you’ll get 15% off if you own at least one Witcher game, or 20% off if you own both The Witcher or The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings.  Because CD Projekt RED created GOG, you’ll support them directly and it will be DRM free. Even if you bought the game at Steam, you can use the CD key to link up the games to GOG, and you’ll be able to download any of The Witcher games through GOG with no extra cost.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be released on February 24th for the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

My Opinion:

This is how you do pre-orders RIGHT. I am excited to play The Witcher for the first time, and the game looks fantastic. The best part? Regardless if you bought either the limited edition (which really is limited) or the standard edition, you will get extras for buying it new. CD Projekt RED shows once again what publishers must strive for.
