How to get all the rewards of the Nextgen Update 4.0 in The Witcher 3 - new armor, swords, skins and cards for Gwent

On December 14, 2022, a free next-gen update for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was released. It contains many visual and technical improvements, as well as bug fixes and additional content. In this guide, we will tell you about all the gifts for players: how to find new sets of armor, how to get unique cards for the Gwent mini-game, and other bonuses.

All owners of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt from December 14 could download a next-gen patch that improves textures and adds new content to the game. For users who have purchased the game on any platform after this date, the update will be downloaded automatically.

How to Get the White Tiger of the West Armor and the Thousand Flowers Gear

Launch any version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on GOG GALAXY 2.0 and start playing. If you are launching the game through Steam or the Epic Games Store, please note that access to the My Rewards section requires a link to a GOG account. If you don't have such an account, you can create one for free when you launch the game.

Rewards will be waiting for you at the Royal Palace in Vizima. In your inventory, you will find a letter from Yennefer that will help you find them. As a reward, you will receive swords of the nine-tailed fox, armor of the white tiger of the West, and a set of armor of a thousand flowers from Dol Blathanna.

How to find a chest in Vizima

In order to get to Vizima, you need to go to any pointer for fast travel and interact with it. A map of the area will open: press "Space" and select "Royal Castle in Vizima" (first the location, then the pointer to which we will move).

Immediately after the appearance in the castle, we go through the door on the left and exit into the garden. Here we find the only open door that leads to the ambassador of Var Attra - you are here. Behind the fireplace, there is a small room in which there is a coveted chest with things. In addition, here you can inspect chests and shelves and collect many other useful things. Or read a couple of books, whichever is closer to you.

The chest will contain another letter from Yennefer, but so far without additional tasks. Perhaps in the future, they will add another line of quests.

After examining the chest, you will receive unique rewards.

Equipment available from level 7:

  • Sword of a Thousand Flowers - 82-100 damage;
  • White Widow from the Valley of Flowers - 155-188 damage;
  • Armor of a thousand colors - 66 armor;
  • Boots of a Thousand Flowers - 22 armor;
  • Gloves of a thousand colors - 18 armor;
  • Pants of a thousand colors - 21 armor.

Equipment available from level 11:

  • Steel sword of the nine-tailed fox - 109-133 damage;
  • Silver sword of the nine-tailed fox - 192-234 damage;
  • Armor of the White Tiger of the West - 85 armor;
  • Boots of the White Tiger of the West - 29 armor;
  • Pants of the White Tiger of the West - 30 armor;
  • Elbows of the White Tiger of the West - 25 armor.
All items are relics, meaning they are superior to Common Items, Master Items, and Magic Items, second only to sets in terms of stats.

How to get a new card in Gwent

To get a unique card to play Gwent in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, you need to run Gwent: The Witcher Card Game on any platform, but with the same account. In this case, you will immediately have access to a new map for the mini-game - just continue the game and look in the inventory.

More rewards are planned in the future, so be sure to check the My Rewards section from time to time.

How to get rewards in the Gwent card game

How to start the new quest "In the Shadow of the Eternal Fire" and get the Forgotten Wolf School Equipment

A new task has appeared in Velen - "In the Shadow of the Eternal Fire" with rewards based on the series "The Witcher" from Netflix: a set of basic blueprints for 4 pieces of an armor set, as well as two swords. Weapons and gear can be used once you reach level 20, so if you've just started playing the game, there's no need to rush.

The task begins with a meeting with the deacon near the sign "Devil's Pit". The character is quite noisy, it will be difficult not to notice him.
