CD Projekt Red showed The Witcher 3 Next Gen upgrade in detail, The Callisto Protocol will have a season pass, and God of War Ragnarok has broken sales records.

God of War Ragnarok Sales

God of War Ragnarok, the highly anticipated sequel to the 2018 game, has set a new record for sales in its first week. The game, exclusively available on PlayStation consoles, has sold a staggering 5.1 million copies, making it the biggest launch for a PlayStation game in the history of the platform.

As a demonstration of their confidence in the game's success, PlayStation kindly gifted me a copy of God of War Ragnarok to review. And I have to say, I have been thoroughly enjoying my time with it. From the stunning visuals to the gripping storyline, this game has exceeded my expectations in every way.

Having completed the main story, I am now working towards achieving the coveted Platinum Trophy. The gameplay mechanics, the combat system, and the overall design of the game are simply outstanding. But before diving into God of War Ragnarok, I would highly recommend playing its predecessor, God of War (2018), as the story is a continuation of the previous game. Understanding the events and character development from the first game will enhance your overall experience with Ragnarok.

This remarkable sales achievement for God of War Ragnarok further solidifies the series' status as one of PlayStation's flagship franchises. The success can be attributed to the exceptional quality of the game, the loyal fanbase built over the years, and a strong marketing campaign that generated widespread excitement and anticipation.

Callisto Protocol Season Pass

In other gaming news, it has been announced that The Callisto Protocol, an upcoming horror game developed by Striking Distance Studios, will feature a season pass. The season pass will not only include new story elements but also introduce new death animations for the players.

There was some initial confusion regarding the inclusion of death animations in the main game. An article from IGN suggested that certain death animations would be locked behind the season pass. However, Glen Schofield, the CEO of Striking Distance Studios, took to Twitter to clarify the situation. He confirmed that no death animations would be withheld from the base game. Instead, the season pass will offer unique, additional death animations that are currently in development.

This clarification is a relief for the players, as it ensures that the core game will not be compromised or hindered in any way. The season pass content will be an optional addition for those who wish to further enhance their gameplay experience and explore new features within The Callisto Protocol universe.

Witcher 3 Next Gen Upgrade

Lastly, CD Projekt Red, the renowned developer behind the critically acclaimed Witcher series, recently held a live stream to discuss the highly anticipated next-gen upgrade for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The stream provided detailed insights into the various improvements and changes players can expect in the upgraded version of the game.

The next-gen update for The Witcher 3 will bring a host of quality of life improvements, taking full advantage of the power and capabilities of the latest gaming consoles. These enhancements include improved visuals, faster loading times, and smoother overall performance. Players can look forward to a more immersive and seamless gaming experience as they dive back into the captivating world of Geralt of Rivia.

CD Projekt Red has confirmed that this next-gen upgrade will be available free of charge to all existing owners of The Witcher 3 on December 14, 2022. This gesture highlights the studio's commitment to providing the best possible experience to their dedicated fanbase, while also enticing new players to embark on Geralt's epic adventure.

In conclusion, the gaming industry is abuzz with exciting news and developments. God of War Ragnarok's record-breaking sales, The Callisto Protocol's season pass clarification, and The Witcher 3's highly anticipated next-gen upgrade all contribute to the ever-evolving landscape of gaming. These announcements serve as a testament to the dedication and creativity of game developers, as well as the passion and enthusiasm of players around the world. With each new release, the boundaries of gaming are pushed further, promising even more thrilling and immersive experiences for gamers to enjoy.
