With just two free pieces of downloadable content left for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on the way, players are eager to find out what the final two bits of DLC will be. Although the developer was releasing at least one DLC each week since the game’s launch, CD Projekt Red did not release a DLC over the last few weeks. Instead, the team focused on getting a major patch released that included a new movement mode for the protagonist, access to player storage throughout the game, and many other changes and fixes.
With the 1.07 patch live on all platforms, CD Projekt Red is back to releasing free DLCs to owners of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The penultimate DLC in question is a pack of new finishers which will be available to download for free later this week. Finishers in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and other games with action-focused combat, are basically animations the player character executes when defeating an enemy. In Geralt’s case, it can be something as simple as running an enemy through or a flourish ending in a beheading. A new set of finishers will definitely add a little variety to the game’s combat while showing off some surely visceral animations.
Other free DLCs released up to this point include things like alternate skins for prominent characters, new quests, new weapons, and even new gwent card sets. For example, players can download free optional, alternate looks for Ynnefer, Triss, and Ciri. Five new quests have been added as free DLC to the game, too. Some of these quests go so far as to fill in a few lore gaps as well as providing another source of experience and gold. Finally, new armor and weapon sets are also available for free that can later be found in the game for purchase from select vendors.
Free DLCs are not the only way to expand gameplay in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, though. Two massive expansions are planned for release in the future. Entitled “Hearts of Stone” and “Blood and Wine,” these expansions are said to offer 10 and 20 more hours of play respectively. The first, “Hearts of Stone,” is scheduled to release in October while “Blood and Wine” is slated to launch in early 2016.
The free pack of new finishers for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is expected to release later this week. The final portion of free DLC could show up as early as next week, but there is no official word on its release at this time.
Only one free DLC remains for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. What do you think it will be?
