The Witcher 3 REDKit Installation Steps

First of all, The Witcher 3 REDKit is only available on PC, so if you are planning to use it on console then you’re definitely out of luck. The program is available on all storefronts where The Witcher 3 is available on. However, it’s easiest to just download the setup program from Steam and then run it.

The setup program for the editor requires that you specify a couple of locations for it to use it. One is the path where you’ve installed the game and then a “depot” path. That is where all the game files will be kept and they will be “uncooked”, or unpacked, so you can modify them.

Once you have specified two valid locations, press the “Generate” button and then wait for the progress bar to be filled. If the status changes to “Depot is valid” then you are ready to go. Press “Continue” and get ready to create your first project.

What is the Witcher 3 REDKit?

The Witcher 3 REDKit is a free modding tool. It allows you to completely customize your experience with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. By using it, you can access several new features and customize almost everything about the game, creating new characters, quests, and animations.

Naturally, using the editor will require a bit of experience before you are able to master all of its different features and options. But the good news is that the CD Projekt website is filled with tutorials to help you. It might also be a good idea, especially if you are just starting out with this editor, to share your project with the community so they can help you. That way, you can also download other players’ creations!
