'The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt' Complete Edition Update: Aug. 30 Release, $49.99 All-In-One Disc Brings New Game Mode, All Expansion Packs, 16-Piece DLC Bonus; Xbox One Only?By Marilyn B. Stewart, UniversityHerald Reporter
"The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt" DLC all joined in one package means that all DLC releases for "The Witcher 3" will be deployed in one pack. A press release from developer CD Projekt Red then confirmed the news that a single disc that contains the game and expansions will be released called "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition" or "The Game of the Year Edition."
"The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition" disc will contain the base game along with the "Hearts of Stone" and "Blood and Wine" expansions. It will also carry the new game mode and 16 pieces of free DLC bonus, most of which are just cosmetic options.
"The Witcher 3" 16-piece DLC bonus that were made available for free includes new armor sets and the ability to transform Geralt's haircuts and facial hair. It also includes a new contract, alternate looks for Ciri, Triss and Yennefer. Some extra quests and extra Gwent cards are also incorporated.
Currently, "The Witcher 3 Complete Edition" Amazon listing is set for an Aug. 30 release date priced at $49.99. This is quite a steal as the price is lower than a new "The Witcher 3" game. However, Amazon's listing only mentions an Xbox One copy but PS4 and PC versions are already confirmed as well.
Meanwhile, "The Witcher 3" was originally released in May 2015 and has since received two expansion packs in the past years, Polygon reported. The "Hearts of Stone" expansion pack was released in Oct.2015 which added 10 hours of gameplay. It also brought new characters, monsters and lovey dovey time with Shani.

It brought a large and new regions complete with new quests, points of interests, weapons and Gwent cards, VG24/7 reported. Watch "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt" gameplay trailer here:
