While CD Projekt has not disclosed the specific release window, further details are expected to be unveiled next year. The announcement has garnered an overwhelming response from the PC gaming community, although it’s important to note that mod editors will not be compatible with consoles.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’s gigantic open world and the rich array of quests and side quests have made the game lively even after 8 years. Therefore, the mod editors make it an ideal candidate for the creative possibilities that mod editors bring. The introduction of Mod Editors will provide gamers with the opportunity to enjoy modified challenges and experiences within the beloved game.
To demonstrate the fun of mod editors, a player crafted their own SpaceStation using a mod in the Starfield game. If a similar wave of excitement hits The Witcher 3, players might witness the emergence of an entirely new world within the game.
As a sequel to the Witcher Series, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is set in an open fantasy world in Slavic mythology. Players play as Geralt, a witcher on a hunt searching for his abducted daughter, Ciri. The Witcher 3 is available on various platforms, including PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Nintendo Switch.
