The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Pre-Order Bonuses

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Box Art

This game was released on May 19, 2015 and is no longer available to pre-order. Any incentives that were offered are listed below.

The third installment in the popular action RPG series, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt continues the story of Geralt of Rivia, and brings a number of improvements to the franchise. New mechanics like horseback combat, Witcher sense, and climbing add more depth to the game. Nonlinear gameplay is emphasized even more, with each quest having several different solutions, and the player’s choices affecting the world around them.

The game’s world is significantly larger than that of its predecessors, with the new REDengine 3 providing stunning graphics on current-gen consoles and PCs, and eliminating annoying loading screens. According to CD Projekt RED, TW3: Wild Hunt will have around 100 hours of gameplay.

Pre-order bonuses

The developers are sticking to their promise of not releasing any exclusive DLC: everyone is getting exactly the same game. However, that doesn’t apply to physical collectibles and digital goodies that don’t affect gameplay. Here’s a list of retailers which are offering exclusive pre-order incentives for The Witcher 3:

  • Boxed version:
    • GameStop: an exclusive Witcher key chain and poster (limited supply).
    • Amazon: a 48-page hardcover comic by Paul Tobin and Max Bertolini (limited supply).
    • Best Buy: limited edition SteelBook packaging and a discount for Gamers Club members. (Update: the offer of an exclusive SteelBook is no longer available for new online pre-orders).
  • Digital version:
    • Steam: a 10% discount, digital artbook, official soundtrack, Witcher 3 artworks and wallpapers, and a digital map of the in-game world.
    • GOG.com: everything offered by Steam, plus a copy of Neverwinter Nights, The Witcher: House of Glass digital comic book, extended soundtrack (four exclusive tracks), and six PDF templates for Witcher paper toys.

Standard edition

Witcher 3 Physical Edition

If you are late for the exclusive bonuses, don’t despair. Just like with the previous installments of The Witcher, CD Projekt RED went out of their way to make sure the physical edition of the game is worth buying. In addition to the game itself, all copies come with a soundtrack CD, a map, a compendium of the Witcher universe, and a set of stickers. Of course, the digital counterpart offers most of these goodies in downloadable form.

Collector’s edition

Witcher 3 CE

The Collector’s Edition of TW3 includes all the little knick-knacks from the regular version, plus the following:

  • A large Collector’s Box, plus SteelBook packaging for the game DVD
  • A 33x24x26 cm hand-painted polystone statue of Geralt fighting a Griffin
  • A high-quality Witcher medallion
  • A 200-page artbook
  • Xbox One exclusive:
    • Two Gwent card decks
    • Cloth map replacing the regular one

This edition can be found at multiple retailers, and is priced at $149.99.

    I love that nothing is being offered in game, there shouldn’t be any exclusive content crap “because you bought the console that payed us the most…” Super annoying and also they are putting the soundtrack… A map….and an information book on the witcher universe… That is awesome. I know to create a cd costs less than a quarter to make and all of this stuff is really inexpensive but that is all the more reason game makers should give us stuff like that, projekt Red is really setting the bar with this release. I believe and hope witcher 3 is the best selling game ever not only because of how much work they put into it but then maybe other developers will take notice and change their act. Either way I hope the player base will realize how little the other developers are doing, and possibly, hopefully, noticing how much they screw the fan base by trying to squeeze money out of us with DLC that should have been in the game originally, very BIG props to Projekt Red, and a huge thank you.

      I think that’s the downside of triple A games, the money squeezing

      so they’re making an amazing game and not nickeling and diming people for DLC and you’re still going to resort to being a pirate?

        I’m afraid this is why videogame devs and publishers are becoming more and more greedy.. because no matter how well you do your job there’s always a few idiots who are going to ruin everything.

      Technically you “get” 16 free DLC, but everyone gets them regardless of platform, so w/e. It’s not even a preorder bonus, buy the game you get it.

      According to Polygon, the game is misogynistic and has no people of color whatsoever.

      0/10, check your privilege
