All 16 pieces of DLC created for The Witcher 3 will be released free to owners of the game, according to an open letter posted by CD Projekt RED co-founder Marcin Iwiński.
It’s part of CDP’s mantra of putting customers first, which the firm has a long history of doing.
“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, ” wrote Iwiński.
“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?
“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.”
Two DLC releases will arrive every week starting on February 25, with the first set containing body and horse armor, and different hair customization options for Geralt (facial hair included).
On March 4, Yennefer will be graced with new duds and a new quest
The Witcher 3 releases February 24 on PC, PlayStation 4 and XBox One.
