As expected, the WitcherCon event focused mainly on Netflix projects, especially on the second season of the feature series, which adapts a book saga by Andrzej Sapkowski. Already at the announcement of this virtual event, which was organized jointly by Netflix and the CD Projekt RED studio, we learned that we are not waiting for the announcement of any new game of the Sorcerer., and it was later talked about the fact that we should not wait for an approach to the expected next-gen upgrade Sorcerers 3 from 2015.
We really didn’t know anything about any new game. After all, here we have some news associated with the next-gen upgrade designed for PCs and consoles PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X | S. Unfortunately, we still don’t know exactly when we will see him. Studio CD Projekt RED only confirmed that it will be released this year and that it will be completely free for anyone who already owns Sorcerer 3 in the PC, PS4 or Xbox One version. At least we have a new cover image, traditionally dominated by Geralt of Rivia, and a rather surprising announcement of new free DLCs.
Sorcerer 3: Wild Hunt will see extras this year, which will add items inspired by the Netflix series to the game.. We have a case similar to a few days agowhen card Gwent: The Witcher Card Game enriched the cosmetic innovations associated with the serial The Sorcerer. So again, it would there should be no interconnection or linking of the universe of games and the series.
However, there is obviously nothing to stop the objects, although it is not yet clear what this will be about. But we can probably count on, for example, new armor, a sword or another piece of equipment, or with purely cosmetic pieces in the style of donkey ears or Magistra glasses, which Geralt can wear in the Heart of Stone and About Wine and Blood data discs. In the past, moreover, Sorcerer 3 has received free DLC bringing new clothes for Ciri and Yennfer, which also appear in the series, so the news is not necessarily related only to Geralt. At the moment, it doesn’t really look like we can expect any new story quests or locations.
The good news is that although free additional content with Netflix series items has been announced in connection with the next-gen upgrade of Sorcerer 3, will come out on all platforms on which the game itself is available, including PS4, Xbox One and Switch. This is also the difference from the Gwent case mentioned above. While the Sorcerer card game is still current, Sorcerer 3 is a title from 2015 and the last official content was released in 2016. Another free DLC, however small, released 5 years later is a particularly pleasant surprise in this context.

In any case, if you want to shorten the wait for the next-gen version of Sorcerer 3 and the new content packages, we recommend that you head to GOG.com, where you can now for 72 hours from the launch of WitcherCon get free digital English version of the book The Sorcerer and His World and the comic The Sorcerer: Fox Children, as well as a recording of a music concert from The Sorcerer 3 and four legendary cards in Gwent.
All you have to do is log in to your GOG account on the page, then you will find a concert in your library on GOG.com and cards in the game itself. With a book and a comic, it’s a little more complicated because after logging in, you will only receive an activation key, which must be entered on the Dark Horse website. So you must also have an account there. After entering the code, you will be able to view both publications at any time in the browser or in the Dark Horse Comics mobile application.
