The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Game of the Year edition spotted
Source separately tells Eurogamer the game will be released late August.

The German age-ratings board USK has listed an entry for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Game of the Year Edition for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Eurogamer has been told separately by a source that this game exists and will be released 26th August 2016.

The listing can be seen on the latest classifications page on the USK website and was initially spotted by Twitter user lifeflower.

Rollenspiel: what a nice word.

We're waiting to hear back from CD Projekt Red.

A Game of the Year Edition of The Witcher 3 will presumably bundle the game plus both downloadable expansions, which are currently available in an Expansion Pass that costs £20, or can be bought separately for slightly more (Hearts of Stone for £8 and Blood and Wine for £16).

Hearts of Stone, the smaller of the expansions, adds a 10-hour story to the game. "A delightful romp, if you need more Witcher 3 with your Witcher 3," wrote Cassandra Khaw in our The Witcher 3: Hearts of Stone review.

But it's Blood and Wine that's the main event: a 30-hour addition that takes place in the brand new - and gorgeous - region of Touissant. "A fitting end to an exceptional video game," wrote Johnny Chiodini in our The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine review.

UPDATE 1PM BST: CD Projekt Red has, in a statement given to Eurogamer, confirmed The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Game of the Year Edition.

Game director Konrad Tomaszkiewicz told us: "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was a gigantic effort for the entire studio, and both the team and me were amazed by the good reception of Geralt's adventures. Since launch, we've released two expansions, Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine, which added a lot of new adventures to the already potent mix.

"With all the free DLC and updates the game received so far, including significant changes to the game's interface and mechanics, many gamers have asked us if we're working on some sort of a Game of the Year Edition. I'm happy to confirm - yes, plans are in motion to release such an edition. We'll release more details, including the release date, in the future. In the meantime, I'd like to thank every fan of the game for their support - you're really amazing!"

There's a leak with a screenshot of a map from the upcoming new expansion DLC.

Finally finished the game. I always kept putting it down, but the story kept me picking it back up again.

Honestly, I was extremely disappointed with Witcher 2's shortness and linearity, but this game was huge and fantastic.

Only thing I don't like is the level requirements on certain quests.

Either level scaling should have been used on the mid-game questlines that had no requirement as to order (visit Skellige, search Vellen, visit Novigrad), or else a more Gothic-like combat system that emphasizes levelbloat should have been used so that the nonlinearity of the mid-game/expansions could actually mean something.

Still, had a great time with this one.

They put a lvl scale-up option with a patch.
The game is more fun if you play it with the level scaling mod, the devs are really bad at balancing and creating systems. They tried to imitate gothic and its just that, an imitation. The nuances are lost.
With all the three Witcher games you have to mod it to create at-least a mildly coherent and balanced system.

I know. But scaling UP doesn't help me play higher level content sooner. You'd need content to be scaled DOWN for that.

What I'm saying is, Vellen, Skellige and Novigrad can technically be taken in any order and are technically non-linear.

But because of the level requirements, they are effectively linear - which feels like a waste to me.

Haven't tried a lot of mods due to patches breaking them. Maybe I will try it though.

Or just use mod that removes item requirements. Sure most of the items scale to you but there are few ones that don't and almost all crafted ones don't.

Instead of new Geralt DLC, I really really want a new Witcherverse game or DLC with Ciri or Yennifer as protagonists. Both because of their powers and personalities.
Sadly, chance for anything of that are very slim.

Hopefully they release the RedKit for Witcher 3, so far the modding capabilities are vastly limited when compared to Witcher 2.

Did Witcher 2 have any worthwhile mods? I just used a weight limit remover and autowin hack for the dice poker.

I hope the power/level curve is something CDP sort out for Cyberpunk. It was a mess in W3 without mods. 90% of the loot was useless too. Though I guess loot was never the point.

I got excited about the physical disc thing, but then I realised I'd have to open up my computer case, disconnect a HDD just to connect my disc reader. I can no longer be arsed.
