CD Projekt RED has announced that it will be offering 16 free downloadable content packs for The Witcher 3 on all platforms.
“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,” CD Projekt RED co-founder and joint CEO Marcin Iwiński wrote in an open letter, in part. “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.”
On February 25th, 2015 the first 2 DLC bundles will be released: the Temerian Armor Set and a new Beard and Hairstyle set for Geralt. After the 25th, two more DLCs will be released every week.
The Witcher 3 is set to release on February 24th, 2015 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
