The Witcher 3 honeymoon period is definitely over.
Witcher 3 developer CD Projekt Red have confirmed that the 16 (yes, sixteen) Witcher 3 free DLC items that have been delivered since the game’s release are the last you’re going to get. For nothing, at least.
“We’ve been releasing free DLCs since launch, and today’s release of New Game +, the 16th and last of them, marks a special moment for us and, I hope, for all Wild Hunt fans as well. They can now restart their adventure and see how the story turns out if they make different choices than on their first play-through. 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.” – Marcin Iwiński, co-founder, CD PROJEKT RED.
In other words, the free ride is over, now it’s time to start paying for things.
Here’s the full list of the 16 Witcher 3 free DLC items:
- Temerian Armor Set
- Beard and Hairstyle Set
- New Quest – ‘Contract: Missing Miners’
- Alternative Look for Yennefer
- Nilfgaardian Armor Set
- Elite Crossbow Set
- New Quest – ‘Fool’s Gold’
- Ballad Heroes’ Neutral Gwent Card Set
- New Quest – ‘Scavenger Hunt: Wolf School Gear’
- Alternative Look for Triss
- New Quest – ‘Contract: Skellige’s Most Wanted’
- Skellige Armor Set
- Alternative Look for Ciri
- New Quest – ‘Where the Cat and Wolf Play…’
- New Finisher Animations
- NEW GAME +
Iwiński, clearly quite aware that the Witcher 3 free DLC policy is rare and is – to a certain extent – showing up bigger players in the industry, had the following to add:
“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.”
Other than suggestion that the first major Witcher 3 story DLC will be about as big as Witcher 2, there’s been no concrete indication of what/when/how much for the rest of the Witcher 3 DLC items.
All we can confirm is that the Witcher 3 free DLC honeymoon period is definitely over.
