The Witcher 3 Dev Hopes Other Teams Embrace Free DLC

The final piece of free downloadable content has been released for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt; an oft-requested New Game+ mode was the 16th and last offering.

Developer CD Projekt Red is hoping you enjoyed all that extra DLC, and also hopes other designers follow their good example.

Here's what studio co-founder and CEO Marcin Iwinski said in a recent statement:

"I'd like to extend my thanks to all the gamers who played our game and gave these DLCs a try. Nothing makes a developer happier than seeing gamers have fun with what they created.

I would really like to see such initiatives become an industry standard rather than an exception to the general rule, and I hope that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has set a good example."

Of course, many of those 16 free add-ons didn't amount to much (most were just one new mission and there were a few new costumes) but even so, Iwinski noted that some publishers do charge for such content. Oddly, Iwinski said they provided this content free of charge because after gamers paid full price for the game, "we owe them." ...what do you owe them? A complete game; nothing more. Are you saying what you produced wasn't a complete game?

Well, at any rate, there's paid extra content, too, and as you might expect, it's a good deal longer. Two expansion packs, Hearts of Stone (set for October) and Blood and Wine (due out in 2016) will offer up to 30 hours of extra gameplay. To get both, it'll cost you $25.
