CD Projekt Red has just announced an exciting development for The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt on PC — official mod support is on the horizon in 2024. While The Witcher 3 is widely regarded as one of the best open-world games, it hasn’t been as mod-friendly as some other titles, such as Skyrim. This upcoming update is poised to be a game-changer for modders, offering new creative possibilities.
The enduring popularity of The Witcher 3 is evident as it continues to receive updates, recently reaching over 50 million copies sold. CD Projekt Red’s announcement in 2022 reported 40 million copies sold, indicating an impressive additional 10 million units sold in just one year.
In 2024, The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt will introduce an official mod editor, available exclusively for PC and completely free. This editor will empower players to modify existing quests and features or craft entirely new content. While specific details about the tool, including its release date, are yet to be disclosed, the prospect of enhancing the gaming experience is eagerly anticipated.
Currently, The Witcher 3 boasts several quality mods, addressing aspects like NPC faces, Sign effects, lighting, sounds, HUD, and more. However, the community has been craving content-rich mods, such as unique quests and storylines. The forthcoming mod editor is expected to fulfill this desire, injecting fresh and exciting elements for dedicated fans.
Although mod support is likely the final major update for The Witcher 3, given CD Projekt Red’s recent focus on new projects, including three upcoming Witcher games, fans can anticipate an enhanced modding experience to enrich their gameplay. With titles like Project Canis Majoris, Project Sirius, and the highly anticipated Polaris trilogy, CD Projekt Red continues to expand The Witcher universe with innovative and engaging experiences.
