CD PROJECT RED has announced that The Witcher 3 REDkit is leaving its beta phase of testing and will soon officially launch for PC. The Witcher 3 REDkit was revealed last November by CDPR and has been available for playtesting on Steam but will become available all on GOG, Steam, and the Epic Games Store on May 21. Owners of the game will be able to get it for free.

CDPR calls the REDkit a love letter to fans and has worked with Yigsoft to create it. The development tools are nearly identical to those used by the game’s creators and will allow users to almost completely customize the game to their liking. Users can make their own quests, weapons, characters, and more, but also modify nearly part of the game. These modding/development tools are not compatible with console versions of the game and are only launching on PC.

Per CDPR (via GOG):

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
