Personally , I love Bethesda for only their RPG games so its my favorite genre.But I have never played the witcher games because they just looked meh. I shall be getting it though, are you? I’m interested to know.
I don’t know anything about Witcher, what is this witchcraft >_>
Me neither, but this one looks fun p.s pls no derail, k thx
I will eventually, but probably at a discount. Looks really good though.
Absolutely - I’ve been waiting for months and months. The Witcher games have been high points in the RPG genre, and this one looks to dramatically expand the concept to levels not seen since Skyrim. Both 1 & 2 are worth playing to this day, if you haven’t yet.
Ooooh, just looked at it, I actually might get this, once the price drops a bit, looks amazing, plus RPGs are my shiz.
Got it already! Plus the Season Pass! #hype
Is the sky blue? of course I’m getting it.
I might pull out the ol 360 and try them out then.
I thought DLC was free though. ;-;
How have you not seen it before now? #doueveninternetbro
DLC is free, Expansions are not. Expansion will offer 20 or 30 hours worth of gameplay, while they giveaway free DLC for customization.
Ah, what kind of expansion? Story expansions like Azura’s wrath or Different sidequesting dlcs like Fallout 3 and Skyrim ?
School blocked those websites ;-;
I got like really sucked into Evolve, kinda blinded me to all other games
CD Projekt Red will release two paid downloadable add-ons for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt starting later this year, a pair of expansions that promise more than 30 hours of new adventures for Geralt of Rivia.
The first expansion, Hearts of Stone, is slated for release in October. The add-on sends Geralt into the wilds of No Man’s Land and the city of Oxenfurt to complete a contract from the Man of Glass. The second expansion, Blood and Wine, is scheduled for release during the first three months of 2016. Players can explore a new in-game region of The Witcher 3, Toussaint, which CD Projekt Red describes as “a land untainted by war, where an atmosphere of carefree indulgence and knightly ritual masks an ancient, bloody secret.”
The Witcher 3’s paid DLC expansions will be available as part of the game’s Expansion Pass, which will retail for $24.99. If players want to purchase the add-ons separately, Hearts of Stone will cost $9.99, while Blood and Wine will cost $19.99. On PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, the game and its Expansion Pass will be sold as a bundle for $84.99. On PC, that bundle will be sold for $79.99.
CD Projekt Red previously announced that it would release 16 pieces of free downloadable content for The Witcher 3, including cosmetic items for Geralt and Yennefer, and at least one playable contract. When that free DLC was announced, CD Projekt Red co-founder Marcin Iwiński, said the bonus content was being given away in the hopes that it would change abusive business practices surrounding post-launch add-on content.
“If we ever decide to release paid content for Wild Hunt, I promise you, gamers will see why we decided to charge for it,” Iwiński told Polygon at the time. “We’ll ask ourselves a simple question: Could anyone feel ripped off when they buy it? If there’s even a slightest possibility they will, we won’t do it.”
In a statement released today, Iwiński said he believes the paid DLC for The Witcher 3 will offer players meaningful content and real value. But should The Witcher fans balk at the idea of paid DLC, Iwiński suggests waiting to see if it’s worth your time.
“With the development of Wild Hunt coming to an end, the team has embarked upon the creation of two new really big adventures set in The Witcher universe,” Iwiński said in a release. "We remember the time when add-on disks truly expanded games by delivering meaningful content. As gamers, we’d like to bring that back. We’ve said in the past that if we ever decide to release paid content, it will be vast in size and represent real value for the money. Both our expansions offer more hours of gameplay than quite a few standalone games out there.
“While we’re offering the Expansion Pass now, we want to make one thing clear: don’t buy it if you have any doubts. Wait for reviews or play The Witcher and see if you like it first. As always, it’s your call.”
What?! They said ALL dlc will be free, ok maybe I won’t buy it after all.
Expansion Pack isn’t DLC. DLC is cosmetic used for customization. Expansion Pack adds about 30 hours to your 200 hours of gameplay.
Think like Evolve gave out free weapon skins but made you pay 20$ for all upcoming Monsters.
