The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on PSN

CD PROJEKT RED’s The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is available for pre-order on the PlayStation Network. Those of you that jump in early on the action can save an additional 10% marking the price down to $53.99 and you’ll be able to play at midnight EST on February 24, 2015.

This news comes just shortly after an open letter to fans from Marcin Iwiński, co-founder and Joint CEO of CD PROJEKT RED, which announced 16 specially prepared DLCs for free. What’s the catch you might ask? Absolutely nothing! All you have to do is buy the game and you’ll receive the DLC in weekly increments as a thank you for showing your support by purchasing the game. These ladies and gentlemen that make up CD PROJEKT RED are a bunch of sweethearts, and other game developers should take notes. Gamers love feeling appreciated and shouldn’t have to buy a Season Pass for an extra $20 the day a game hits retail shelves to feel like they got a complete game.

The Full Letter:

“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.”

Regards,
Marcin
