Witcher 3 Gets Release Date, New Trailer, Awesome Statue

As part of today’s GOG and CD Projekt Red conference, CD Projekt Red’s co-founder Marcin Iwinski showed off the company’s newest trailer for the final installment in the Witcher trilogy, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

Iwinski specifically called out the footage shown in the trailer as all in-engine and it’s already looking great. The itch to upgrade my PC is getting harder and harder to suppress as more information about the game comes out.

In addition to showing off a new trailer, Iwinski showed off the various editions available for preorder.

The standard console and PC editions come with the game, soundtrack, stickers, a map, and most interestingly, a compendium meant to catch players up on the Witcher universe.


Collectors, however, can look forward to something special. If you’re willing to pony up the yet unannounced money to get the big box, you’ll get everything that comes with the standard edition and a bunch more.

The biggest element is the statue seen above, which is hand-painted polystone. If you collect fancy nerd dolls like I do, polystone is a pretty exciting word – this is a nice piece of sculpture. In addition to the statue, you’ll get a steel medallion like the one Geralt wears, a 200 page artbook, and a steelbook case for the game.

If you’re a Witcher fan, this is the one to get. That polystone statue alone could kick the price of the edition up to $200. The statue clocks in at 9 inches tall at least, and similar-sized polystone characters can go for $250 without all the other accessories.

Finally, Iwinski shared a firm release date for the game. The game is set to come out Feb. 24, 2015, for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
