CD Projekt Red announced last night that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has gone gold, that means the game is finished and ready for duplication and then distribution. It also means that fans will definitely be able to embark on Geralt of Rivia's final journey, starting May 19.

“We worked so damn hard over the past three years to bring you this game,” said Adam Badowski, Head of Studio, CD Projekt Red. “From the corrupt nobles in Novigrad to ancient monsters lurking in deep forests, to the bustling cities, colorful ports and breathtaking vistas; all the people, all the places - we literally spent tens of thousands of hours to turn all that into an adventure that will kick your ass and make you want to come for more,” adds Badowski. “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has gone GOLD and will soon be yours!” he concludes.

Garnering over 200 prestigious awards before launch, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is CD PROJEKT RED’s most ambitious endeavour up to date. Set within a truly open world, the game puts you in the role of a wandering bounty hunter and monster slayer, Geralt of Rivia. In The Witcher, you take on the greatest contract of your life - tracking down the Child of Prophecy, a living weapon that can alter the shape of the world.

Witcher, it's time you prepare for the long journey. Take careful note of the following; it will guide you in your mission against The Wild Hunt, invaders of our precious Northern Kingdoms.

  • Before you embark, take care of the technical requirements.
  • If PC is your weapon of choice, make sure it's strong enough to take on The Wild Hunt. If it's not, you'll find solutions here
  • Have a look at this map, as it's easy to get lost in the Northern Kingdoms. Remember it's 30 times bigger than any place you've visited before. 
  • Know your roots, so brush up on the history and lore of that which runs through your veins.
  • There will be 16 free items/additions to lighten your journey, don't forget to watch for it once per week.
  • Set 200+ hours aside to complete every mission the Northern Kingdoms hold for you.
  • It's important you find your old love, Triss Merigold, her abilities as a healer will aid you.
  • Don't just storm into battle, see each monster as a puzzle you have to unravel.
  • There will be time for fun, so don't forget to find the Easter Eggs!
  • All work and no play make Geralt a dull boy, so take some time off and join one of the four card game factions.
  • Ciri, your old student, will meet up with you to confront The Wild Hunt. Take caution, she is a highly volatile weapon capable of both destroying and healing.
  • When the burden becomes too heavy to bear, turn to the arms of a woman, if that's not your thing, then you can always listen to The White Wolf.
  • After you've defeated The Wild Hunt, take a break, and then return to take your final bow with two more Witcher assignments.
  • Last but not least, choose wisely, your legacy hangs on more than 30 possible endings.

We wish you a happy and safe journey. Do keep us up to date. We've included a section after the letter where you should post photos of your travels. We are especially interested in seeing a photo of a Griffin, so if you happen to cross one, do take some pics.
