Witcher 3 free DLC new game +

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’s final free DLC pack will be something CD Projekt RED is calling New Game +. Exactly what that is hasn’t been made clear yet, but it’s likely to be some kind of separate mode for starting a new game designed for those who have already beaten it before. The timing is just right, with the majority of Witcher 3 players now having had enough time to finish their first playthrough.

Already finished The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt multiple times?” CD Projekt RED said on Facebook. “We’ve got something coming up… New Game+, the final DLC, is on the way and, of course, it’s completely FREE! Stay tuned for more info regarding the release. It won’t happen this week though – we need a little bit more time to finish it.”

The Witcher 3 has been getting free DLC packs regularly since its release back in May. CD Projekt RED promised there would be 16 items of free DLC that would steadily be released to the public following the game’s release. So far, it’s largely been new outfits for several of the main characters, new weapons and items, and a few additional quests.

Last fortnight’s DLC release was skipped so CD Projekt RED could focus on the major patch 1.07, which was set to fix numerous bugs and implement some much-requested features. (Turns out the patch actually impacts performance on the console versions.) Then came Ciri’s alternative outfit, which was accidentally released to some players early. Last week saw the second last DLC, which brought Geralt some fancy new finishing moves that blur the lines between fighting and dancing.

CD Projekt RED has been praised for the amount of work they’re putting into The Witcher 3 post-release, particularly for DLC that’s free. If this is what CDPR gives its fans for free, we can only imagine what we’ll get with the upcoming paid DLCs.

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.

Bandai Namco and Nike designed Tekken 8 sneakers with tag-team designs

Nike, the maker of high-quality shoes, is working with Bandai Namco, the company that makes the Tekken series, to make a pair of sneakers. The fun competition is part of the franchise’s 30th anniversary celebrations. You can get your own pair for $250 or the equivalent in your country, though they’ll probably be worth a lot more on the sneakerhead black market.

Two pairs of Tekken 8 x Nike Air Foamposite One Fist sneakers are set to come out in September 2024, according to shoe fan Sole Retriever (thanks, VGC). The designs are based on Kazuya and Jin, two main characters in the series. You can get them at Nike and some other stores. People who like hypebeasts and fighting games are likely to buy these quickly, so if you like Tekken and shoes that make people talk, you should probably act fast.

Should Bandai Namco and Nike work together? What do you think? Are you going to fight for your own pair? Make sure to take good care of your shoes and keep their value in the comments section below.

There will soon be a new book in Future Press’s Books of Knowledge series, which is FromSoftware’s officially licensed line of hardcover strategy guides. This will help players who are having trouble with Elden Ring’s Shadow of the Erdtree expansion. The base game came with two books, and now you can get the unholy trinity for $45 (or the equivalent amount in your currency). It will ship on September 30th.

Like the first two games, The Lands Between and Shards of Shattering, Shadow of the Erdtree is both a complete guide to how to play and a beautiful artbook with full-page pictures of enemies, landscapes, and weapons. This big book has 352 pages and is likely to sell out quickly, based on how quickly the ones that came before it did.

Do you know a lot about strategy guides? You could read the first two Books of Knowledge. If so, what did you think of them? Leave a comment below and let us know.
