The Witcher 3 walkthrough: Guide to completing every main story mission and side quest (2024)

Two years after the game's official reveal - and after a couple of delays for polishing - The Witcher 3 got its long-awaited release in early 2015.

It might be the final entry in the current Witcher story for developers CD Projekt RED, but with a massive world to explore and a gargantuan list of quests to rattle through, it's certainly a fitting send-off for the last leg of this particular journey.

Right here, you'll find a complete A-Z The Witcher 3 walkthrough of the main campaign, neatly broken down into easily-digested chunks.

You'll find our regional guides - stuffed with Witcher 3 side quest walkthroughs - directly below, as well as our coverage of both expansions Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine.
