Witcher 3 Getting New Game Plus Soon

Okay, so you already know that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be getting a New Game+ mode as its final piece of free DLC, but I bet you didn’t know that the mode’s release date ‘Won’t be too long’ away. You can thank us later.

That’s Marin Momot, CD Projekt RED’s Community Coordinator. We admit that the above isn’t the most shocking of Witcher news, however it’s nice to see CD Projekt RED at least responding to the question. There is a new detail regarding New Game+, though:

Yes, it turns out you’ll have to find all the location sign posts again in order to fast travel about the world. Although at times you do simply want to go from A to B much of the joy from the Witcher 3 can be had in wandering off the beaten path and seeing where it takes you. We once set off from somewhere in Velen to reach Oxenfurt and an hour later still hadn’t gotten there thanks to all the distractions.

The next piece of news is one that may come as a shame to those who do enjoy unplanned excursions and tend to document their discoveries as screenshots. Or, you know, that glorious sunset.

The more pedantic among you may point out that the question regards the PlayStation 4 version of the game and therefore CD Projekt RED might have an Xbox One photo mode already up their sleeve. The reality of this seems very unlikely, not least due to the Xbox One receiving screenshot capturing support only recently, thus making no more of an impetus to develop an in-game photo mode sooner than the PlayStation. The only method to get any cinematic photographs in The Witcher 3 remains to be toggling the HUD elements off in the options menu.

Finally, a fix will also be coming for the statuette in the “Now or Never” quest:
