The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Complete Edition launches on Switch this October
The Witcher 3 was announced for Switch earlier this year during E3, and given a tentative release window of “sometime this year.” Now, it has a date, and it’s closer than you’d think.
CD Projekt Red announced during Gamescom today that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Complete Edition will launch on the Switch on the 15th of October in the US, Europe, and Australia, and the 17th of October in Japan.
The package comes with the base game, the Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine story expansions, and all 15 free DLCs, said to offer over 150 hours of open-world fun. Not content with just announcing the release date, the dev team also put together an absolutely gargantuan 41-minute long gameplay overview video. It’s pretty impressive.
The good folks over at Eurogamer’s Digital Foundry have also put their eyes (and analysis machines) on the game, showing that the game runs at a mostly-locked 30fps, at a dynamic resolution of between 540p and 720p while docked. It’s a compromise, to be sure, but having this running on the Switch at all is nothing short of a miracle.
