Better Late Than Never: Sign up to Test The Witcher 3’s Mod Tools!

CD Projekt RED (CDPR) isn’t in a hurry, but they are taking it very carefully, because they didn’t jump into the deep end with The Witcher 3 REDkit, which could extend the life of the game, which has been out for almost nine years now.


On Steam, CDPR has confirmed that anyone who wants to try out the modding toolkit can go to the REDkit site and request access. The testing will be done in batches, so more than one person can access The Witcher 3 REDkit at a time, and once access is granted, the toolkit will show up in our Steam library. CDPR is also working on official Steam Workshop support for The Witcher 3, which players can test by joining the dedicated beta.

The Steam page for The Witcher 3’s REDkit has also revealed a few more details about the toolbar. The official modset is essentially the same one that CDPR created during the game’s development. The images published by the Polish studio show the depth of modding possibilities that the REDkit offers, so that modders can create some very serious projects in the future, and since CDPR is already working on their next games with Unreal Engine 5 (Cyberpunk 2077 sequel, The Witcher 4, The Witcher Remake…), they have given a legacy of their own engine to gamers eager to develop. And who knows: maybe there will be some extraordinary mods that radically change the game (or even create something completely new), and that will catch the attention of developers who will join one of CD Projekt’s studios!

Two-thirds of CD Projekt is currently working on a project called Polaris. That’s the codename for The Witcher 4. In its annual report, the company confirmed that the current number of employees is 403. In May of last year, the Polish team announced that the research phase of the new Witcher adventure had been completed and that pre-production work had begun. Full-scale development will begin sometime this year.
