The Witcher 3 DLC Will Punish You For Using Money Exploits

Taxes follow you everywhere, even when you jump into the fictional virtual world of video games.

The new Hearts of Stone expansion for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is currently available, and there's a nasty little surprise included for those who used one or two of the game's money exploits.

Before you enter the sewers in Oxenfurt as part of a main quest, a tax man approaches you and asks you a series of questions. You can see the encounter in this YouTube video.

The Deputy Tax Enumerator from the Revenue and Customs department wants to talk to you about some of your earnings. He says you've been red-flagged because you came into a lot of money relatively quickly, which is a hint that you might've used a money exploitation trick. The questions ask about selling copious amounts of rawhide in White Orchard and harvesting clams for the valuable pearls.

See, there were little tricks that would let you do both of these tasks relatively easily, and thereby get a bunch of money fast. But this flies in the face of the following statute:

"Whoever purchases goods at an unseemly low price to take advantage of the seller's ignorance shall be subject to a fine equaling 200 percent of the earnings from any such transaction."

Of course, you can just deny everything and that'll be that. If you do, the tax man will give you a "Taxpayer in Good Standing" diploma, which is just downright funny.

They shouldn't let you dodge it, at least not easily. You should have to undertake a sidequest to cook your books.

Well they actually have released a bunch of free stuff other companies would charge you for, I see this more like an expansion (like if a game this big would need it... or well I'm being envious with the youngsters, I miss only going to school and play a lots lol).

They never really said "all". They did say they had 16 pieces of dlc that was going to be free and they did follow through with that, plus the 2 expansions were going to cost money as well.

My question is, is this one of the expansions? If so then they've done nothing wrong, this is what they said they were going to do.

Come on World...don't knock them for that. At least they informed they're players through physical documentation out the box that 16 free dlc pieces were coming. Not only that, but the actual paid dlc is easily identifiable within the game itself. Quest logs tell you which quest are dlc, etc.

I appreciate that type of stuff because developers have a poor way of of distinguishing the main game and dlc. That Dark Souls 1 DLC was a confusing mess.

@Rogue...I would say mini expansion. No new environments, but a manipulation of it to make the new quest and experience fresh. Plus they offer new boss types to fight which is pretty cool. I bought the season pass, but $10 for this solo dlc is beyond fair. I remember paying $10 for some very under-cooked challenge rooms for Bioshock 1. BIGGEST WASTE OF MONEY EVER!!!
