News | Current gen update The Witcher 3 will be released on December 14

The current gen update for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be released on December 14.

This has been announced by CD Projekt Red. The company insisted that the update would appear sometime this year, and that appears to be correct. The update will be available on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and S, and PC.

The update, which is free to download for anyone who owns the game on PC, Xbox One or PlayStation 4, includes dozens of graphics and performance improvements. Think of ray tracing, faster loading times on consoles and all kinds of mods that are part of the experience. It also includes additional content inspired by The Witcher series on Netflix. This content will be revealed during a RED stream on Twitch next week.

People who have not yet bought the game at all can purchase the digital Complete Edition of the game from December 14th. In addition to the main game, it also contains the expansions Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine. A physical edition will also be released at a later date.

Finally, an update will also be released for the PS4, Xbox One and Switch versions of the game with all kinds of improvements and the new content based on the Netflix series.

News | Next-gen update The Witcher 3 will be released in the second half of this year

The next-gen update for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be released sometime in the second half of this year.

CD Projekt Red, the developer of the game, announced this via a spokesperson on Twitter. The update should improve the appearance and run of the game on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X and S. The update will be available as a complete game on the new consoles and PC, as well as a free download for owners of the original game.

It was previously announced that the next-gen version of The Witcher 3 will receive “several visual and technical enhancements,” including ray tracing and faster loading times. These improvements apply to both the main game and the released expansions. There are no more details yet.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is Polish developer CD Projekt Red’s most acclaimed game. At the end of last year, the studio released Cyberpunk 2077. The game sold well around launch, but was also under fire due to many bugs present. A new patch for that game was released earlier this week that fixes hundreds of issues. A next-gen update for Cyberpunk 2077 has also been promised by the developer.

News | The biggest announcements of Gamescom 2019

As you read this, Gamescom in Cologne, Germany is still in full swing. I'm already back to provide you with the latest updates. The largest game fair in the world is open to the public until Saturday. However, most announcements have already been made, often through various live streams. Below you will find the biggest announcements and news from Gamescom this year. And believe me there is some news!

Last E3, Square Enix finally revealed the first images of the highly anticipated Marvel’s Avengers, and the first gameplay images were released during Gamescom. These images revolve around the intro segment of the game and allow you as a player to get used to the five heroes you play with: Captain America, Iron Man, the Hulk, Black Widow and Thor. There is a major catastrophe in the action game that banishes the Avengers. Five years later they have to take action again to save the world from evil.

Marvel’s Avengers will be released on May 15, 2020 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Google Stages.

Cyberpunk 2077 is coming to Google Stages

Speaking of Google’s upcoming streaming service, another big news item about Stadia this Gamescom is that Cyberpunk 2077 is coming to Stadia. Although Cyberpunk 2077 will be released on PC, PS4 and Xbox One on 16 April 2020, the Stadia version does not yet have a release date. But the big news that one of the most hyped games of the moment is also coming to Stadia is good enough for me.

Ori and the Blind Forest available on the Switch

Microsoft and Nintendo are best friends. After Minecraft and Cuphead, the Xbox One game Ori and the Blind Forest will also come to the Switch. An absolute must for Switch owners, because this beautiful-looking platformer remains completely intact on Nintendo’s hybrid system. Explore a magical world and try to survive the most challenging platform sections. Ori and the Blind Forest will play for the Switch on 27 September.

In an Indie World presentation, Nintendo also revealed many more interesting indie games for the Switch. The action games Superhot and Hotline Miami Collection are immediately available through the eShop. The colorful The Touryst by Shin’en (the makers of Fast RMX), the pixelated Eastward and the fun What the Golf also look promising.

Switch version The Witcher 3 is available from October 15

I could hardly believe it during E3: the gigantic open world action rpg The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is coming to the Switch! During Gamescom I was provided with many more images of the Switch version and it remains unbelievable to see this game running on the hybrid console. There is now also a release date: October 15. As if this fall wasn’t full enough with potential top games! The Switch version of The Witcher 3 also includes the acclaimed expansions of the game, and therefore offers hundreds of hours of gaming fun.

Bizarre new gameplay and videos from Death Stranding.

The more I see of Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding, the more confused I get, in a strangely satisfying manner. During Gamescom he also swung a few trailers into the world that confused more than provide clarity. For example, some new characters are introduced – including an artificial fan based on game journalist and The Game Awards presenter Geoff Keighley – and we see the main character, acted by The Walking Dead actor Norman Reedus, peeing. Yes, a bit strange, but it is very relieving!

Final Fantasy 8 Remastered is available from the beginning of September.

Fans have had to wait for quite some years, but the classic Final Fantasy 8 RPG finally gets a remaster. Which is coming out on 3 September. From that moment the game will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch and PC. The rpg was originally released in 1999 for the very first PlayStation and revolves around a group of mercenaries led by the stoic Squall Leonhart. New in this version are sharper graphics and new gameplay elements, including a Battle Assist option.

Enough nice announcements and trailers during Gamescom this year! Whatever platform you have, the rest of the year offers a wide variety of interesting titles. 2020 is also starting to look very tasty!
