We already knew that CD Projekt Red was working on an enhanced edition of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Game of the Year Edition for next-gen consoles, but it didn’t have any sort of release date for it. However, it doesn’t appear that the game is too far off, at least at this point. A new rating has appeared on the official PEGI ratings board page in Europe, hinting that the game may not be too far off from a holiday release. That would make sense, considering that The Witcher’s second season on Netflix is set to premiere in just a few weeks.
Here’s the official description for the rating, straight from the site:
The game features frequent strong violence, occasional scenes of violence against vulnerable characters and frequent strong language. Geralt is able to dismember, decapitate, disembowel and bisect his enemies during gameplay combat. Notable scenes of strong violence include, but are not limited to, a raven burrowing into a man’s eye socket and bursting from the back of his shattered skull and a man’s face melting and sizzling after being struck by a fire spell. Violence against vulnerable and defenseless persons includes people being bound to and burnt at the stake, and a child being fed upon by a vampire. The word ‘fuck’ is used frequently and ‘cunt’ is used several times.
Geralt is featured in sex scenes with several different women; the couples’ genitals are not visible during intercourse, though there are other moments of full nudity.
So, yeah, we’re in for a Witcher experience. Here’s hoping that CD Projekt Red gives us the official announcement – and a date – fairly soon!
Check out the trailer for the game below.
