The Witcher 3 doesn’t have a level cap

The Witcher 3 has tons of stuff to do. We’ve been playing for tens of hours, and we aren’t sure we’ve even scratched the surface. With that said, the game does eventually run out of quests; one of the downfalls, if you want to call it that, of giving every quest a story and voice acting.

But even after Geralt’s world has been drained of every last decision and bit of drama, he can continue to gain experience as he fights monsters.

Community lead Marcin Momot confirmed on Twitter that there is no level cap for The Witcher 3, meaning that if you wanted, you could eventually unlock every item on the skill tree.

With that said, the huge majority of experience comes from quest completion, whether it’s story quests or contracts, so simply grinding monsters for experience isn’t something that’s going to be appealing to most players.

At the very least, though, this is confirmation that when the two big expansions come out, there’ll be more leveling up to do without worrying that the personal experiences we have in the game world might not be accompanied by an ever-growing experience bar.

As noted by VG247, this has resulted in some calls for a New Game Plus mode. CD Projekt Red never makes anything as easy as just simply restarting the game with your experience intact, though. They’d want to rearrange monsters and quests. If they’re willing to do the work, it could be a fun way to extend the game’s life a bit for those that find the combat interesting.
