Game studio CD Projekt RED recently announced a change to how popular video game The Witcher 3 could be purchased on the Nintendo Switch.
According to the developer, the game can now be purchased in different ways. Players can get the game with all the expansions and add-ons with the Complete Edition. They can also buy it separately with only the base game and the expansions and add-ons on another purchase.
The Complete Edition is priced $59.99, which is the standard price of a full game. The base game alone is priced $39.99 with the Blood and Wine for $19.99 and Hearts of Stone for $9.99.
Here are some FAQs:
Q: Will cross saves between Switch and PC still work?
A: Yes, cross saves will continue to work. Keep in mind that you need to have the same content both on the Switch and PC version for your saves to work.
For example, if you have the Game of the Year edition on PC you’ll need to have the base game, expansions, and all free DLCs on Switch to fully use the cross saving feature. Likewise, you won’t be able to use saves from the Game of the Year edition for PC if you only have the base game on Switch.
Q: What will happen to my physical version?
A: Players who purchased the Complete Edition game card will be able to play their version of the game just like before.
Q: If I delete the Complete Edition, will I still be able to download it again after it leaves the store?
A: Yes, if you already own the Complete Edition and decide to delete it, you’ll be able to re-download the game even after it’s removed from the Nintendo eShop.
Q: Will my save files from the Complete Edition work on the base game and expansions?
A: Not directly, but you can make them work by first transferring them from Switch to PC and then back to Nintendo Switch.
The Witcher 3 is now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC. An upgrade for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S is coming soon.
