“We worked so damn hard over the past three years to bring you this game,” said Adam Badowski, Head of Studio, CD PROJEKT RED. “From the corrupt nobles in Novigrad to ancient monsters lurking in deep forests, to the bustling cities, colorful ports and breathtaking vistas; all the people, all the places — we literally spent tens of thousands of hours to turn all that into an adventure that will kick your ass and make you want to come for more,” adds Badowski. “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has gone GOLD and will soon be yours!” he concludes.
Not only does The Witcher 3 feature an open world, armour and weapon upgrades, but it will also feature 16 DLC bundles including armor sets, hairstyle sets, alternative looks for characters and additional quests. Where CD PROJEKT RED differs from other developers is that all 16 DLC items will be FREE – all gamers need to do is own a copy of the game. No pre-orders, no season pass, nothing – just free DLC. As Marcin Iwiński, co-founder and Joint CEO of CD PROJEKT RED says:
“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.”
