The Witcher 3 Set to Receive an Official Mod Editor in the Upcoming Year

After the successful launch of the Phantom Liberty expansion for Cyberpunk 2077, the developers of The Witcher 3 are gearing up to breathe new life into the game by introducing a mod editor after more than 8 years. This anticipated move allows fans to expand the game’s universe significantly, introducing fresh features and garnering support from the developers themselves, a development that’s sure to excite the game’s dedicated fanbase.

CD Projekt Red, the developers of The Witcher 3, made a formal announcement through their X account (formerly Twitter) regarding the game’s future plans. They confirmed that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be equipped with an official mod editor. For those unfamiliar, this editor empowers players to craft personalized experiences within the game, ranging from the addition of new questlines to expanding on existing ones.

The Witcher universe is rich with untold stories, ripe for exploration. This editor opens avenues for dedicated fans to reimagine and incorporate these narratives into the game as brand-new questlines. Set to be released in 2024, this mod editor for The Witcher 3 will be accessible to all players without any charge. CD Projekt Red intends to unveil more specifics about this editor early next year.

Following the announcement, some inquisitive fans sought clarity on whether the mod editor would extend to consoles. The developer confirmed a “PC Only” release for the mod editor, indicating its exclusivity to PC platforms.

Unlike CD Projekt Red, Bethesda has integrated mod support into recent titles like Skyrim and Fallout 4, extending it to consoles. The upcoming Starfield is anticipated to introduce mod support for both PC and Xbox in the coming year. Consequently, there remains a possibility that CD Projekt Red might consider console modding in the future.

Previously, CD Projekt Red released a modkit for Witcher 3, enabling modders to craft new in-game assets. While this birthed various gameplay mods, some were even incorporated into the Witcher 3 complete edition as official features. However, the former modkit didn’t permit the creation of custom questlines, a capability now offered by the new mod editor.

Presently, the developers are entirely immersed in their next-gen Cyberpunk project and a fresh Witcher title utilizing Unreal Engine 5. Anticipated in spring 2024, the mod editor’s launch promises to empower players with the ability to add personalized questlines and additional content to Witcher 3. Are you eager to revisit Witcher 3 with these modded enhancements?
