Witcher 3 Is Getting Steam Workshop Support and Full REDkit Modding Tools

Witcher 3 REDkit

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt fans have much to be excited about! CD Projekt RED has released full REDkit modding tools and Steam Workshop support, making it easier than ever to create and enjoy new content in this beloved game.

What Is REDkit?

REDkit is a powerful modding tool that allows players to create new quests, characters, locations, and more. Unlike the Modkit released in 2015, which only allowed modifications to existing game content, REDkit opens up endless possibilities for creating entirely new experiences in The Witcher 3.

Steam Workshop Integration

With the addition of Steam Workshop support, installing mods has never been easier. Steam users can now browse and install mods with a single click. This feature complements the REDkit release, making it simple for players to enhance their game with community-created content. If you prefer, you can still download mods manually from platforms like Nexus Mods.

New Mods Already Available

Several mods are already available on Steam Workshop. These include:

  • Blood spatter effects in combat
  • Glowing Witcher eyes for Geralt
  • Triss’ Witcher 2 outfit as her default look
  • A mod that reintroduces the boat design seen in pre-release promo materials

Over on Nexus Mods, there’s even a REDkit-made mod that brings several Witcher 1 maps into The Witcher 3, though it’s still a work in progress.

Official Tools and Guides

To help modders get started, CD Projekt RED has launched a dedicated Witcher 3 REDkit website with a detailed user guide and a series of video tutorials. The first tutorial, which explains how to install Witcher 3 mods, is already live on YouTube.

Patch Notes and New Update

To coincide with the REDkit release, a new update has been rolled out for The Witcher 3 on PC. This update includes:

  • Steam Workshop support, making it easy to manage mods
  • Support for DLC-sized mods, allowing for the creation of new content
  • Easier ways to add new world IDs in mods
  • Full support for loading DLC mods, fixing previous issues with additional content from mods

Looking Ahead

While The Witcher 3 won’t receive any new official content beyond these tools, CD Projekt RED is hard at work on future projects. The next mainline Witcher game, codenamed Polaris, is in development and expected to release no earlier than 2025. Additionally, a remake of the original Witcher and a multiplayer spin-off are also on the horizon.
