The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt developer CD Projekt Red promised 16 pieces of free downloadable content for the open-world role-playing game, and the studio has now released all of it on all three platforms the game is available on, the company announced today.
The 16th and final piece of DLC, the New Game+ mode, was released Aug. 17 on Windows PC and Xbox One, and Aug. 18 on PlayStation 4. The Witcher 3's slate of free add-ons includes alternate costumes, additional quests and sets of armor.
"I'd like to extend my thanks to all the gamers who played our game and gave these DLCs a try," said Marcin Iwiński, co-founder of CD Projekt Red, in a press release today. "Nothing makes a developer happier than seeing gamers have fun with what they created."
Iwiński added, "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." The statement echoed CD Projekt Red's announcement of the game's free DLC program back in November, when Iwiński wrote an open letter saying that the DLC business model is "definitely abused" by the game industry.
