The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is set to arrive on Xbox Game Pass on December 19th which, perhaps not-so-coincidentally, happens to be the day before the brand new The Witcher series arrives on Netflix.
It appears that, for now, The Witcher 3 will be an Xbox Game Pass for Console exclusive, meaning it’ll be available for both Console and Ultimate subscribers. There’s still a chance it’ll arrive on Game Pass for PC in the future, though.
Those who play The Witcher 3 via Xbox Game Pass will get to enjoy both the full game and all 16 free DLC. The Blood and Wine and Hearts of Stone DLC will have to be purchased separately.
Winner of over 800 awards, including more than 250 Game of the Year awards, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a story-driven, open world RPG set in a dark fantasy universe.
The game follows the story of professional monster slayer Geralt of Rivia, tasked with tracking down the child of prophecy — a living weapon that can alter the shape of the world.
As the witcher, gamers will explore a massive, war-ravaged continent, battle foes both human and monster alike, as well as face meaningful choices and their consequences.
