The Witcher 3 to Receive 16 Free DLC!
Peter Donnell / 2 years ago
The developers at CD Projekt RED have long been a shining beacon of hope that there are still some truly great developers out there; today they reminded me why. Their co-founder and Joint CEO just published an open letter about their upcoming open-world RPG epic, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. It states that the game will be receiving 16 free DLC packs on every platform that the game is released on!
This is a great move for consumers, especially in a market where games are shipping half complete, only to sell you day one DLC packs that almost double the retail price of the game. Instead of scraping every bit of money from your wallet with a constant stream of added content, CD Projekt RED will continue delivering a premium quality experience at no additional cost to the consumer.
Open Letter from Marcin Iwiński, co-founder and Joint CEO of CD PROJEKT RED.
“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.
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?
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. 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.”
This is just awesome Marcin, thank you for showing countless other developers and publishers how it’s done.
Thank you TheWitcher for providing us with this information.
