All 16 DLC Packs For The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Will Be Free
Downloadable content is common. Free DLC is somewhat rare.
But the idea of all DLC being free for a huge game, especially when there are 16 packs scheduled? That's just mind-bogglingly awesome.
Developer CD Projekt Red produced an open letter for fans today and in it, they explain why all the extra content for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is going to be delivered entirely free of charge. The packs won't be tied to any specific platform, either. DLC pack #1 will be released on February 25, 2015 (a day after the game launches) and it'll include a new armor set and a few extra cosmetic alterations for the hero.
After that, they'll release two expansions every week, and some of that DLC will include new quests. As for why all of it is free, CD Projekt Red co-founder Marin Iwinski explains:
"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. This is our way of saying thank you for buying our game."
If you've got this built into the cost structure of the game ahead of time, sure. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be ready to go on February 24 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
