Can't wait. Never played the first but absolutely loved the second. Please tell me we aren't do for another Titanfall like $250 collectors edition.

I'll get the digital edition that nets me the expanded score. I love the music for these games but refuse to pay $150 for the collector's edition.

That's me too; although I just installed the first one today. We'll see if my HP can handle it.

Free for Everyone: CD Projekt Red Unveils Ambitious 16 Part DLC Plan For 'The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt'

A statement being made with DLC.

One of the biggest trends in the game industry today is the DLC, pre-order, season pass trade. More and more publishers are coming up with slices of content meant to secure either extra revenue or compel players to pre-order or else miss out on content. Quite famously, one game that is bucking this is 'The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.' CD Projeckt Red has been very vocal about this slicing and dicing of content. Today, the developer announced that no less than 16 DLC packs will be coming to 'The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt,' and that is after the February release date.

The big catch here is that there is no catch, the content packs will free for all players of the game regardless of purchase scheme and date.

And the reason for this generosity? From Marcin Iwiński, co-founder and Joint CEO of CD PROJEKT RED:

We love games. We love collecting them, playing them, and everything connected to that experience. Every time we reach out for a new release, we expect to be taken care of. We expect support if we encounter any problems, we love updates constantly improving the experience, and we feel really special when we receive free content that gives us more than we initially paid for. It doesn't have to be huge, it can be an awesome skin for a character, or an extra sword, or armor.

Unfortunately this treatment is quite rare these days. As gamers, we nowadays have to hold on tight to our wallets, as surprisingly right after release, lots of tiny pieces of tempting content materialize with a steep price tag attached. Haven’t we just paid a lot of cash for a brand new game?

As CD PROJEKT RED, we strongly believe this is not the way it should work and, with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, we have decided to do it differently. Cutting to the chase, everyone who buys Wild Hunt will receive 16 specially prepared DLCs absolutely for free, regardless of platform. You don’t have to pre-order, you don’t have to buy any special edition to get them -- if you own a copy of Wild Hunt, they’re yours. This is our way of saying thank you for buying our game.

The first four DLC packs have been detailed, and are very DLC-ish. Details on the remaining 12 are still to come.

That's awesome news.

Not to be outdone, EA just announced that they will discount their Team Madden card packs by 1% for a whole day.

If you purchased The Witcher and The Witcher 2 from GOG, you can pre-order The Witcher 3 for $35.99. If you got the first two games elsewhere (like retail stores or Steam or Amazon), you can use your registration key to get a free backup of the first two games and also qualify for the special discount.

May 19, 2015

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has been delayed to May 19, 2015, CD Projekt RED announced. The game was previously expected to launch in February 2015, but the studio said it sees "many details that need to be corrected" as the game nears the end of its development. "When we release the most important game in our studio's history, we must be absolutely sure that we did everything we could to limit any bugs to a level that will allow you to enjoy the game thoroughly," the developer added.

CD Projekt said it "set the release date too hastily," and that it owes its fans an apology for the delay. "It's a hard lesson, one to take to heart for the future. We know what we want to do to make Wild Hunt one of the best RPGs you will ever play. And we continue to work hard to achieve just that," the developer said. The Witcher 3 is in development for PC, Xbox One and PS4.

On the one hand, I am pissed about the delay. On the other, I am glad they are taking the time to get the game right before it's released. No sense in pulling an Ubisoft.
