The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Info on New Game+.

 

Enemies will be stronger, obviously.
 
What carries over? 
Player experience (if you're below level 30 when finishing the vanilla game, you will be bumped to level 30 for the start of NG+), items (excluding: quest items, books & letters, Gwent cards, usable items, trophies), money and alchemy recipes.
 
When starting New Game Plus you can select any difficulty level.
 
You can obtain the Death Match achievement when playing the NG+ mode.
 
What's the starting level of the character when beginning NG+?
The same that you had when finishing the game, if above 30, otherwise you start at level 30. You also get a free Clearing Potion at the start so you can reset your skills and try a different build.

 

 

Created elixirs should carry over, too.

Patch notes for the upcoming 1.08 patch.

 

PERFORMANCE:
  • Overall improvements to performance, including some issues that may have been caused by 1.07.
 
 
 
UI:
  • [Japanese Only][PS4 Only] Fixes an issue where the background text of certain books would flicker.
  • Fixes an issue where part of the Kaer Morhen map would not display properly.
 
 
 
GAMEPLAY:
  • Fixes a rare issue where items would disappear from the stash.
  • Fixes a very rare issue which would cause Geralt to get stuck when trying to run.
  • The interaction pop-up will no longer appear on lootable objects that are empty.
  • Fixes an occasional glitch in one of the dwarf combat animations.
  • Heads chopped off during finishers will no longer disappear.
  • Players can perform a roll just before landing to significantly reduce the damage caused by falling.
    • We've added a tutorial pop-up window explaining this to make it clearer.
  • In patch 1.07, the level requirements for certain items were scaled up, leaving some players stuck with only unusable gear. With patch 1.08, we are introducing the Wolven Hour potion. This potion will be available in everyone's inventory once they install the patch. It will reduce level requirements on all gear for a period of one hour. This will give players time to level up or find alternative equipment using the gear that was available to them in patch 1.05 but became unusable after patch 1.07. After one hour, the potion's effects will cease and the requirements for all gear will revert to their original, pre-potion values.
  • Fixes an issue where players were unable to compare their items with ones sold by merchants.
 
 
 
ACHIEVEMENTS:
  • Players will now be able to complete the Card Collector achievement.
  • Achievements are now working properly again and will be unlocked if players meet their requirements after installing this patch (PC version).
 
 
GRAPHICS:
  • Fixes an issue where interiors would sometimes not display properly on the minimap.
  • Fixes an issue where certain world elements would sometimes be missing and noticeable visual glitches would be present while in Novigrad.
 
 
 
QUEST:
  • Fixes an issue where players were unable to finish the "It Takes Three to Tango" quest, even though they had obtained wine at the Kingfisher.
  • Fixes an issue where Geralt would sometimes die after traveling to Velen in the quest "Something Ends, Something Begins."
  • The entrance to the area where the Sunstone is obtained will no longer be blocked off if the player exits it prematurely during "The Sunstone" quest.
  • Fixes an issue where players were unable to complete the "Get Junior" quest on certain occasions.
  • Fixes an issue where players were unable to finish the "Scavenger Hunt: Viper School Gear" quest due to a closed gate.
  • Fixes an issue where some players were unable to investigate rooms during the "Family Matters" quest, effectively blocking their progression.
  • Fixes an issue where players were unable to finish the "Hey, You Wanna Look at my Stuff?" quest.
  • Fixes an issue where players were unable to talk to Roche during the "An Eye for an Eye" quest.
  • Fixes an issue where Roche would stay at his camp instead of going to the Oxenfurt Bridge in the "Get Junior" quest.
  • Fixes an issue where, under certain circumstances, Yennefer would not appear in Oxenfurt during the "The Great Escape" quest.
  • Drowners will have a harder time killing Nidas during the "Black Pearl" quest.
  • Fixes an issue which led to an infinite loading screen during the "To Bait a Forktail..." quest under certain circumstances.
  • Fixes a rare issue where the basement was locked during the "King's Gambit" quest.
  • Fixes an issue where players were unable to free the merchant during the Person in Distress event in the Claywich area.
  • The trolls at the Circle of Elements will no longer attack Geralt if he opts for a peaceful resolution.
  • Fixes an issue where players were unable to talk to Roche during the "Brothers in Arms" quest.
  • Fixes an issue where Zoltan's card was unobtainable.
 
 
 
GENERAL:
  • Preparatory features paving the way for the introduction of New Game + in the future.

Patch 1.08 released today on all platforms. GOG Galaxy was getting slammed with traffic so it was having issues, but is working now.

I think I have the first version of the game.. I know I have a 460gtx and the minimun is 660 but is pretty slow.. 18-35fps .. I'll try to get a patch and see if I can win some more FPS.

Finally finished the game on the hardest difficulty. Didn't complete every hunt or do all the side quests in Skellige.. got bored and pushed through the main story. Good game overall, gets better once you make contact with Ciri. 

 

Anyone else finish? I got the ending I suspected I was gonna get. Wasn't disappointed.

Still working my way towards the end, because of school and everything. Did finally get into Act 2, finally, so there is that. :lol: Plan is to beat it at least once before Fallout 4 arrives, as I won't be playing much else besides that. So, got until November 10 to get a Witcher 3 playthrough in, and probably another. Dunno if I'll go all the way through once NG+ arrives, but will at least get that started. I got a few other saves to try to see some different things, different outcomes from Witcher 2 than what my current one is like.

 

 

@Fragsman, the GTX 460 may be too low to play the game successfully. If you're on Steam or using GOG Galaxy, you should be on 1.08. The game shows the version whenever you launch it; just like below the last option at the title screen.

New finisher animations have arrived, with New Game+ expected shortly. Xbox One has already received it in some regions (maybe all), with other platforms expected shortly.
