I just finished the main storyline in Witcher 3 on my Xbox One. Then I purchased the DLC pass that has both Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine. I loaded my game from after completing the story line. I created a new saved game. Then I exited to the main menu. Tried to start a New Game, but everything except for Fresh Start is greyed out. New Game + is greyed out, along with Hearts of Stone Only and Blood and Wine Only. I want to start a New Game + so I can continue playing with my current character.

Any ideas how to enable the New Game + option so that I can play my DLC?

    Which DLC do you have installed? (Not just purchased; New Game+ is a free DLC) Commented Dec 20, 2022 at 9:36
  • Were you perchance already playing a New Game+, from which you created the new saved game?

  • @Chronocidal Ok, maybe that's it. I'll go check that it has actually downloaded the DLC as well. Commented Dec 21, 2022 at 17:39
  • @Joachim No, the game I was already playing was not a New Game+. Commented Dec 21, 2022 at 17:39
  • @Chronocidal That was the problem. I purchased the DLC but it wasn't installed yet. If you post that as the answer, I'll accept it. Thanks! Commented Dec 22, 2022 at 1:43

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt does not come with New Game+ by default. It is one of several free DLC available for the game.

Combined with Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine also not being available, you should check which DLC you have installed, not just the ones that you have purchased.
