The lights are on
Although we won't be able to get our hands on The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt until next year, CD Projekt Red is still giving us plenty of reasons to be excited for the final chapter of its fantasy RPG series. Today, the developer unveiled the contents exclusive to the Xbox One Collector's Edition of the game, including two physical decks of the new Gwent card game and a cloth map of the game world.
Gwent is a two-player card game within The Witcher 3 in which players choose from four factions and battle against their opponent. The Xbox One Collector's Edition features physical counterparts to the virtual card decks: The Nilfgaardian Empire, the Northern Realms, the Scoia’tael, and the monsters of No Man's Land.
In addition to these Collector's Edition details, Projekt Red also released the Downwarren gameplay trailer, in which Geralt accepts a local villager's request to investigate the deaths of citizens who have been sleepwalking into the woods. To get there, he must travel through the swamps, battling a couple water hags along the way.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt launches February 24, 2015. For more, go to our cover story hub and read a preview of five promising features we're looking forward to.

Sweet! I have this pre-ordered for the One! February can't get here fast enough.
Getting this CE on the PS4 ty :D
The combat in the game looks great.
Have had PC Collector's Edition pre-ordered since the first day it went on sale. Going to be worth every single cent. This is the game to own Feb 2015.
I'm relieved Witcher 3 was delayed actually, would have hated to choose between this and Dragon Age: Inquisition. Now I can play both!
Please don't release Batman anywhere close to this game's release. I won't even consider playing another game for months besides doing the bare minimum to keep up on my fighting games.
Between this and dragon age I just know this will be the better game. I trust these guys way more than bioware these days
odd. game manual in collectors edition. but heck, that medallion looks nice.
