All Witcher 2 DLC Will Be Free

The developers of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings let everybody know on Facebook that they won’t be charging anything for downloadable content coming for the new game when it releases next week.

CD Projekt jumped onto GameStop’s Facebook page and answered some fan questions. You can read the full psychotically long conversation here, but below is the relevant portion:

“Let [us] announce that all our DLCs will be FREE. All of them. If anything will be for purchase, those will be expansion packs. First DLC (side-quest called “Troll Trouble”) [launches] together with the game release.”

The CD Projekt staffers also released a few other bits of Witcher 2 info, including that players will be able to import money and some items from the previous game, and that the game will stack up to 40 hours in the campaign, and at least double that (maybe triple) with all the side quests and so on.

Thank god someone caught up with the Gabe Newel trick to making money.

Step 1: Release a game, become the top seller of steam.
Step 2: Release a free DLC, put your game on sale for a couple of days. Become the top seller of steam again.
Step 3: See Step 2.
L4D/L4D2/TF2 becomes the top steam seller again, for a week, for each free DLC update.
No tricking people into buying map packs for 15$ for 4 maps (Which are mostly popular maps from older versions of the same game)

Getting more people to enjoy your game instead of scamming your fans is a great way to go.

I wish you Witcher 2 the best videogame life possible.
