-Pete Hines, Bethesda Softworks VP of marketing
The game won’t launch until November 10th, and the $119.99 Pip-Boy edition for PlayStation 4, Windows, and Xbox One, is sold out pretty much everywhere video games are sold.

CD Projekt Red details The Witcher 3’s Game+ mode
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt developer CD Projekt Red has revealed the final piece of free downloadable content coming to the open-world game was the New Game+ mode. The developer has explained what that means for players returning for a replay of The Witcher 3.
“Enemies will be stronger, obviously.”
-Marcin Momot, CD Projekt Red community lead
Player experience, money, and alchemy recipes will carry over when starting a New Game+ playthrough, according to Momot, so will items other than Gwent cards, quest items, books, letters, usable items, and trophies.
If a player finishes the game below level 30, they’ll be bumped up to level 30 when they start New Game+, according to Momot. Otherwise, they’ll start New Game+ playthroughs at their current level.
“You also get a free Clearing Potion at the start so you can reset your skills and try a different build.”
Players will be able to select any difficulty level when starting New Game+.
