In more good news for the 'Retro' gaming crowd, CD Projekt Reds The Witcher (2007) is getting a full remake in Unreal Engine 5 as announced by them and Fools Theory.

As someone who didnt get chance to play the original game in the trilogy I am very happy about this news.​

I am so excited for this, especially on unreal engine 5

Hope they do more tham just a visual overhaul

From the report I read its a complete remake (obviously in a new engine) and I imagine some of the more dated systems will be completely overhauled.

Ok. Not Witcher 3 but 1. That’s— ‘cause I was about to loose my s+(%&. Another remake of a game that is not that old? But this is fine. W1 is pretty old now. Slap that 4K on it.

The Witcher 3 is was already getting a free next gen update (announced back in 2020) it was delayed due to the Cyberpunk 2077 controversy and CD Projekt Red concentrating resources on that but this particular announcement was for the original from 2007.

'The next-gen Witcher 3 update promises ray tracing and improved visuals on PS5 and Xbox Series X, plus similar visual updates on PC. The update is set to be a free upgrade for anyone who already owns an old-gen version of the game, and will also come alongside a new 'Complete Collection' release. A set of free DLC packs inspired by the Witcher Netflix series is also set to accompany the release.'​

The Witcher Remake rumoured to be going open world

In a rather drastic change to the more linear structure of the original game, it seems that the upcoming remake of the original Witcher title could be fully open world.

it was described as a 'Story-Driven, single player, open world RPG'.

Oh no. This can go wrong very easily.

Jesus man, devs need to understand that open world isn't necessarily better for everything. This fad has become a little annoying now.

The first game was absolutely fine as a more linear game. It still had areas to explore, and the quest design benefitted from it, especially a certain major quest involving the tower of the swamp.

This game needs to feel like The Witcher 1. Not The Witcher 3 but with TW1's story.

Seems they are just connecting the playable zones so u can freely travel between them

That isn't really a bad thing if done right, just an upgrade in map tech

I didnt play the original but based on what I read in some reports this is pretty much it. It has been said they are removing the need to load between sections so the map feels seamless by connecting the zones in an open world style.
