Wild Hunt mods now available on Steam

Unleash your inner Witcher! CD Projekt RED is enchanting modders with new tools on Steam, opening the floodgates for limitless adventures, customizations, and maybe even a few surprises.

It looks like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will get a new lease on life thanks to new modding tools. CD Projekt RED (CDPR), the developer of the 2015 hit game, recently launched playtest for its modding tool known as The Witcher 3 REDkit, which is now available on Steam.

CDPR announced that it would be launching a modding tool for The Witcher 3 sometime last year. While the modding community has actively created improvements to the game, it has never created anything groundbreaking. However, with the launch of the new REDkit, the modding community now has unlimited access to revamping the game.

After 16 DLCs and two major expansions, The Witcher 3 became inactive. Short of a 2022 update, the best thing we got to satisfy our Witcher cravings was a Netflix series. Other than that, there was no significant content to keep the Wild Hunt community engaged, aside from game-enhancing mods.

With the new REDkit, the community now has access to tools created for use in Wild Hunt. That means Modders can now create new quests or even their own expansions. The community will also have access to creating new items, weapons and characters as they develop animations. The best part about this is that it’s free.

The developers recently confirmed that The Witcher 4 will begin production sometime this year. With that in mind, being able to play custom content could be the best way to keep fans of the franchise distracted while they wait for the fourth installment. Given the limitless possibilities that REDkit brings, it’s likely that players will be able to experience mod expansions similar to what we’ve seen in Skyrim and Fallout 4.

How to access The Witcher 3 REDkit on Steam

CD Projekt RED’s modding tool for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, known as REDkit, recently launched on Steam. This gives you access to the tools.

Modders can easily look up the phrase “The Witcher 3 REDkit” in Steam’s search bar. A prompt should then appear for users to click, which will take you directly to the tool’s Steam page.

Once you visit the page, you will see a section that says “Take The Witcher 3 REDkit Playtest.” Below that there should be a button that says “Request Access.” After clicking that, a new prompt will appear asking you to confirm your request. The developers will then send you an email about your access to the modding tools.

Please note that as long as you own the base game The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in your Steam library, you can request and access CDPR’s modding tools. If you don’t own the game, the developers will likely deny your request to use REDkit.

If you plan to download the modding tools, make sure you free up at least 50 GB of storage space. It’s also worth noting that the minimum requirements for the tools are an Intel Core i7 – 4790k or equivalent, a GTX 1060 6GB graphics card or equivalent, and a minimum of 16 GB of RAM.
