CD Projekt RED Will Support ‘The Witcher 3’ For Years to Come

CD Projekt RED will support The Witcher 3 for years to come, with most small DLC packs being released for free – at least for PC players.

Head of the company Marcin Iwinski, revealed this support in an interview with RockPaperShotgun. Iwinski has said, all the upcoming DLCs and updates for The Witcher 3 will be free for PC players. However, ‘big’ expansion packs containing new gameplay and additional missions will cost $15-$20.

“It’s too early to talk specifics, but definitely all the DLCs and updates will be free. Of course, we’ll see what the platform holders will allow – what we can do for free [on next-gen consoles]. I mean, there are different business models on consoles. From our standpoint, we’ll definitely do everything we can to deliver the same experience across all platforms.

“Should we decide to do some big expansions or something, we’ll expect gamers to pay for it. But again, it’s all value for money. I think $15-$20 for new gameplay is a pretty honest and fair deal. But additional weapons and fixes, those of course come as part of the package.”

Iwinski went on to reveal that the Redkit mod tools that players have access to in The Witcher 2, will definitely be supported in Witcher 3. Which means players will be able to create their own weapons, environments and missions using the mod tools.

“We’ll be supporting The Witcher 3 for years after it comes out. We’re also building the Redkit, and we’ll talk about modding Witcher 3 when the time comes. It’s all about a long-term relationship with our gamers. It even works from a business perspective. Abandoning our baby that we’ve worked on for several years would be crazy. The fact that we have a second game in development just gives us a better way to reallocate resources – QA and whatnot. It’s just a better way to manage the process internally. It’s better for the people and the team.”

The Witcher 3 will release in 2014 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
