Bandai Namco have announced that when The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt launches, it will then have 16 free DLCs to download after launch.
This series of free DLC is what it is: completely free for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Starting on the day after release, 2 free DLCs will hit in a bundle starting with the Temerian Armor Set (horse armor included) and a Beard and Hairstyle Set for Geralt on February 25th. If you have any questions regarding just how free they are, Bandai Namco have included a Q&A just to make sure which is included below.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt launches on February 24th on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
Q: What do I have to do to receive the 16 free DLCs?
A: 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?
A: 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?
A: 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?
A: 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.
