I hope you’ve all gone out and bought The Witcher after my glowing review of what is sure to be a contender for this year’s GOTY! And because there just isn’t enough content CD Projekt RED have decided to release weekly DLC for The Witcher, with the first being a cheeky dig at Oblivion with some horse armour and a Beard and Hairstyle Set.
This week, the DLC is a bit more exciting:
CONTRACT: MISSING MINERS – Miners from a small Skellige village are disappearing. Investigate and find out what’s happening!
ALTERNATIVE LOOK FOR YENNEFER – Check out this entirely new look for the mighty sorceress Yennefer of Vengerberg!
So hands up who is enjoying the fantastic The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, ok now keep your hands up if you have been hit with the dreaded save game bug?
Ever since the launch of the game CD Projekts forums have been filled with people talking about issues with the GUI, stability of the game, but the main issue that seems to be frustrating many consoles players, is the inability to save. Multiple people are plagued by an intermittent issue that randomly disables auto saving as well as manual saving , which you don’t typically realize until many hours later. Well help might soon be at hand.
Phillipp Weber, Cd Projekt RED quest designer posted a reply to a frustrated user on the official forums stating;
We are aware of the issue and treat it very seriously. We hope to put the fix in a patch as soon as possible.
Cd Projekt RED yesterday released a patch for the PC and on twitter Marcin Momot, Community Lead, confirmed that the console version of the patch was still in the works and would be made available “very soon.”
Until a fix is implemented many temporary solutions have been posted on Kotaku which some players might find useful.

If you haven’t made your mind up yet, perhaps the launch trailer will persuade you, that this really has been the main attraction this month, all along. Be Geralt on his quest to find the lost child of prophecy. Go on, take a look, what harm will it do?
It’s close, so close, you can feel the breath of the Wyvern on your neck as you wait to strike. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is released on the 19th of May and CD Projekt Red and Bandai Namco Entertainment UK have ramped up the marketing machine in preparation of the game’s launch.
This trailer highlights the open-ness of the world Geralt of Rivia will be working in and the fact that lots of heads will roll.
Track down the Child of Prophecy, a living weapon that can change the shape of the world. Here’s a tantalising look at the action you can expect.
CD Projekt RED have announced that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has gone gold, and is all set for release on May 19 in North America and May 22 in Europe.
“We worked so damn hard over the past three years to bring you this game,” said CD Projekt RED studio head Adam Badowski. “From the corrupt nobles in Novigrad to ancient monsters lurking in deep forests, to the bustling cities, colorful ports and breathtaking vistas; all the people, all the places — we literally spent tens of thousands of hours to turn all that into an adventure that will kick your ass and make you want to come for more. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has gone GOLD and will soon be yours!”
There are a few games that I’m looking forward to this year. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is definitely one of them.
CD Projekt Red and Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe have conjured up a wonderful new gameplay trailer full of blood, fights and more information than I’ve got the time to write about. This story-driven open-world RPG looks set to give Geralt of Rivia masses of gameplay and blood to wade through while saving a child from an ancient prophecy.
Here it is, enjoy, and it won’t be long until this long-awaited title is released, on the 19th of May.
The Witcher 3 may not be in stores, but it hasn’t stopped developer CD Projekt RED from announcing two expansions that will be headed to the open world RPG once it releases next month.
With the development of Wild Hunt coming to an end, the team has embarked upon the creation of two new really big adventures set in The Witcher universe,
says Marcin Iwiński, CD Projekt RED co-founder.
We remember the time when add-on disks truly expanded games by delivering meaningful content. As gamers, we’d like to bring that back. We’ve said in the past that if we ever decide to release paid content, it will be vast in size and represent real value for the money. Both our expansions offer more hours of gameplay than quite a few standalone games out there.
The first of the two expansions, Hearts of Stone, is penned in for an October release. A 10-hour campaign awaits Geralt as he takes on a contract from the ‘mysterious Man of Glass. The second of the two expansions doubles the gameplay time to 20 hours, has a release window of the first quarter of 2016 and is set in a new region called Toussaint.
While we’re offering the Expansion Pass now, we want to make one thing clear: don’t buy it if you have any doubts. Wait for reviews or play The Witcher and see if you like it first. As always, it’s your call,
PAX East 2015 is in full swing and already it has given us a sneak look at CD Projekt Red’s swords and sorcery-a-thon The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
Here we get an amazing 7 minutes of gameplay footage narrated by Peter Gelencser, the senior level designer. Watch as Geralt finds the secret of the phantom of the trade route, ultimately taking on a Royal Wyvern.
Here you’ll see the art of swordplay, ranged weapons, magic casting and tracking. But less of my waffling, here’s the trailer.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is out on Xbox One on the 19th of May.
