While some of you should absolutely pre-order a copy of The Witcher 3 for Switch, others might be better off waiting a few more days, weeks, or longer.
CD Projekt Red has finally confirmed The Witcher 3’s release date for Switch and the game is set to arrive ahead of the holiday season.
The critically acclaimed game, which was originally released back in 2015, heads to Nintendo’s console on October 15th. And now that we have a release date, retailers are taking pre-orders for the highly anticipated release.
There is only one version of The Witcher 3 for Switch and it’s the $60 Complete Edition that comes with the base game, both DLC expansions (Hearts of Stone & Blood and Wine), 16 DLC items, a map, and a compendium. It’s a solid price for one of the decade’s best games.
There are some great reasons to pre-order a copy of The Witcher 3 for your Nintendo Switch, but there are also some great reasons to hold out.
In this guide we’ll take you through the best reasons to pre-order a copy right now and the best reasons to put your wallet away and wait.
Pre-Order If You Love Huge, Single Player RPGs
If you're looking for a great multiplayer game, you'll have to look elsewhere. That said, if you're looking for one of the most immersive action roleplaying games of this generation, you'll want to think about pre-ordering a copy of The Witcher 3.
Simply put, The Witcher 3 is one of my favorite games of all-time. It has everything you want from an action RPG: A compelling story line, a diverse cast of characters, decisions that have a meaningful impact on the story, exciting combat, fantastic DLC (I loved both expansions), outstanding replay value, and a beautiful world with tons of places to explore and monsters to hunt.
This is not a game that you can beat in a day, a week, or in many cases, a month. The Witcher 3's main story, on average, took gamers around 50 hours to complete.
Personally, I sank 270 hours of my adult life into the game and I didn't see everything and completed just 53% of the game's achievements.
If you've been looking for an excuse to finish The Witcher 3 or you've been looking for a lengthy game to sink your teeth into, this is certainly a game to consider.
I might just pickup a copy and jump back in. It's honestly that good.
