The Witcher 3 Digital Copies Playable The Day Before Launch
Hey, want to play The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt a little early?
The highly anticipated RPG is currently available for pre-order in both physical and digital format. If you opt for the latter, you can actually dive into the fun the day before the official release date (May 19).
Developer CD Projekt Red confirmed to GameSpot that all digital copies of The Witcher 3 will unlock at 1 a.m. CET on May 19. This translates to 4 p.m. on May 18 in the US, which is pretty darn cool, actually. On top of which, if you pre-order the digital version, you'll get 10 percent off the standard $60 retail price. The discount applies to all versions - PS4, Xbox One, and PC - although we're not sure if the PC version will be playable early.
Oh, and the file size appears to come in at about 30GB, which isn't bad at all. For such a huge game, you'd expect it to be closer to 45 or 50, like Grand Theft Auto V. You've got 30GB of free space, right? If not, make room.
