CD PROJEKT RED, creators of the really #coolgame with a lot of dialogues that don’t actually bore you to death, are proud to #announce an entirely new DLC — Roach.

Available soon for only $4.99, the Roach DLC unlocks limited premium content — a horse you can finally identify with! Pre-­order customers will receive an exclusive Roach sticker so they can stick it… on their gaming system.

We’re always listening to gamers, and gamers are telling us they are throwing money at the screen and nothing happens. That’s why we’re extremely thrilled to be able to make something happen, said April Loofs, Senior Executive Officer of Incremental Revenue Acquisition & Fun, CD PROJEKT RED.

Still no word on the Linux release…. yet.

The Witcher 3 Enhanced Edition in the works and potential Linux release

Retailer listings were #posted in #error, “there’s no Enhanced Edition of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt that we are aware of,” according marketing lead Michał Platkow-Gilewski #explained. “This is some kind of error that we will look into.”

Multiple online retailers have posted product pages for a “Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Enhanced Edition.”

Discovered by NeoGAF, European retailers E.Leclerc and SmartToys both published listings for the unannounced title, outlining that the release is coming to PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in early February.

The Enhanced Edition of The Witcher 3 has not been announced by CD Projekt Red, making this news a rumour at this point. The Polish developer has released Enhanced editions for the two previous Witcher games. No details have been available for what will be included with the reported Witcher 3 Enhanced Edition. Plus we are still waiting for the Linux release, which we know is coming but CD Projekt Red has not commented on the launch.

We have contacted CD Projekt Red in an attempt to get more details and will update this post with anything we hear back.

The Witcher 3 launched in May 2015 and has already sold more than 6 million copies.

Blood and Wine is a 20-hour tale that will introduce the all-new in-game region of Toussaint, and will take Geralt to a land untainted by war, where an atmosphere of carefree indulgence and knightly ritual masks an ancient, bloody secret. Currently, Blood and Wine is available for purchase as part of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Expansion Pass — more information available here.
