The day has finally arrived for us Witcher 3 fans. We can now download the Witcher 3 next-gen update that will polish the world we know and love, along with its inhabitants, to give the whole experience of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt that next-gen sheen.


Some of us play it every year, so we won't need any reminding in regards to trophies, but for others, it might be a little hazy in our memories. The game was released in 2015, after all, long before we knew about the Witcher 3 next-gen update.
