More On: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

CD PROJEKT RED has announced that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be receiving 16 pieces of DLC for absolutely no extra cost.

February 25th will bring the first two pieces of DLC in the form of character customization. The Temerian Armor Set which comes with accompanying horse armor (hey, at least this time it's free) as well as a beard and hairstyle set for Geralt, the game’s protagonist.

Each week following the 25th of February will bring two more pieces of DLC, though it is not specified if it will be in the form of aesthetics or missions. 

In an open letter to gamers, CD PROJEKT RED co-founder and joint CEO Marcin Iwinski stated, "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."

Iwinski stressed that there's absolutely no strings attached to the free DLC. "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."
