OFTEN dubbed one of the greatest games of all time, The Witcher 3’s next-gen update is finally here.
It is one of the most famous games of the last generation of consoles and it is now coming to modern consoles.
Even better, the upgrade is free for those who own the original and includes a variety of new features, upgrades, and quests.
The Witcher 3 update will be released very soon; Here’s when you can access it, depending on your console and time zone.
Next-gen update for The Witcher 3: release times for PS5
The PlayStation 5 will have a different release time compared to Xbox and PC as it will not get a simultaneous global release but what is known as a staggered launch.
This means that the update will be available anywhere in the world December 14, 2022 at 12 o’clock local time.
The other platforms will get a global launch, so it will differ depending on the time zone.
Next-gen update for The Witcher 3: release times for Xbox and PC
A global launch means it will be released around the world at the same time.
This means that people in the western hemisphere will receive it in the late afternoon/evening of December 13th, while people in the eastern hemisphere will see the update unlocked in the morning hours of December 14th.
You can’t download the update in advance, but in most regions Xbox players will receive it sooner than on PS5 as it unlocks at the times listed below:
