The Witcher 3 to get 16 free post-launch DLCs

Starting with the "Temerian Armor Set" and "Beard and Hairstyle Set."

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

CD Projekt RED will release a lineup of 16 entirely free downloadable add-ons for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt following the game’s February 24 launch, the developer announced.

The first bundle of add-ons will arrive on February 25 (two of the planned 16). They include the “Temerian Armor Set” (horse armor included) and the “Beard and Hairstyle Set” for Geralt.

Following the first release, a bundle consisting of two add-ons will be published every week. The second bundle will contain an additional quest in “Contract: Missing Miners” and an alternative look for one of the game’s main characters, Yennefer of Vengerberg. The remaining add-ons will be revealed each week after launch.

The downloadable content will be accessible to all, regardless of platform or whether or not you pre-ordered the game.

Find an open letter from CD Projekt RED co-founder Marcin Iwinski below.

“We love games. We love collecting them, playing them, and everything connected to that experience. Every time we reach out for a new release, we expect to be taken care of. We expect support if we encounter any problems, we love updates constantly improving the experience, and we feel really special when we receive free content that gives us more than we initially paid for. It doesn’t have to be huge, it can be an awesome skin for a character, or an extra sword, or armor.

Unfortunately this treatment is quite rare these days. As gamers, we nowadays have to hold on tight to our wallets, as surprisingly right after release, lots of tiny pieces of tempting content materialize with a steep price tag attached. Haven’t we just paid a lot of cash for a brand new game?

As CD Projekt RED, we strongly believe this is not the way it should work and, with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, we have decided to do it differently. Cutting to the chase, everyone who buys Wild Hunt will receive 16 specially prepared DLCs absolutely for free, regardless of platform. You don’t have to pre-order, you don’t have to buy any special edition to get them — if you own a copy of Wild Hunt, they’re yours. This is our way of saying thank you for buying our game.”

Regards,
Marcin
