16 Free DLCs For Those Who Buy The Witcher 3
  • This is how it's done.

    Q: What do I have to do to receive the 16 free DLCs?

    The only thing you need to do to receive the 16 DLCs is purchase The
    Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. All of the DLCs will be available for free on
    every platform (i.e. Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4).

    Q: Do I have to pre-order to get the free DLCs?

    No, each piece of content will be available for download regardless of
    you buying the game before or after launch on February 24th, 2015.

    Q: I have the standard version of the game (i.e. not the Collector’s Edition). Do I still get the free DLCs?

    Yes. You get the 16 DLCs regardless of the version of the game you
    bought (i.e. standard or Collector's, digital or physical).

    Q: What’s the plan? When can I expect the DLCs to be released?

    The plan is to release a new DLC bundle (each bundle contains two DLCs)
    on a weekly basis, following the game’s launch February 24th, 2015. The
    first DLC bundle will be released the next day on February 25th. The
    next bundle will be available for download a week after that, on March
    4th, the next on March 11th, and so on. The first bundle will contain
    the Temerian Armor Set and a Beard and Hairstyle Set for Geralt. The
    second bundle will contain an additional quest and an alternative look
    for one of the game’s main characters -- Yennefer of Vengerberg.


    On whatever platform, whenever you buy it, however you buy it, you will get all of these DLCs for free.

  • Just when I was losing hope on the gaming industry, a reminder that there are still some out there who care about making games and making gamers happy, not just the part where they earn money.

    The only thing I have to say on this one though, if they are releasing additional quests on DLC, do you have to be at a certain point in the story to activate the quests? If so, that could be a bit of a pain in the ass if people are playing the game and they've already gone past the part where they could do that weeks DLC quest.
  • @Orion. That's a good question! I think the answer is that it can vary. It could very well be that you have to get to a certain point, but it could be that a new waypoint will simply be added on the world map, regardless of where you are in the game. Keep in mind however that not all of the DLCs will be quests. Some of them will simply be cosmetic DLC, like the hairstyle that was detailed in the last answer of the Q&A.
