The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – GAME OF THE YEAR Edition on August 30, 2016.

Game of the Year Edition is available as Complete Edition in select territories and stores worldwide.

As Game Director Konrad Tomaszkiewicz adds, all updates and improvements ever released are included as well:

After launch, we took a lot of time to improve the game significantly, and many of these improvements came from player feedback. One such improvement, and a major one at that, now available from the moment you start your adventure in the Complete Edition, is a new user interface. Switching between signs and items during combat is now faster and more intuitive. A new inventory grouping system let’s you find what you’re looking for quicker. And because there are so many things to see and do in the world of The Witcher 3, the map now provides players with more markers and filter types to better plan their adventure.
