Read on for the official details, DLC release schedule and a FAQ.

CD PROJEKT RED, creators of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, the next-generation, open world fantasy RPG hitting stores February 24th, 2015, is excited to unveil their FREE DLC program for the game.

On February 25th CD PROJEKT RED will release the first bundle of DLCs (2 of the planned 16) — the Temerian Armor Set (horse armor included) and a Beard and Hairstyle Set for Geralt, the game’s protagonist. After this date, a DLC bundle consisting of two DLCs will be published every week, entirely for free. Gamers are entitled to the free DLC regardless of obtaining the game via pre-order or after launch. Instructions on how to obtain DLCs on specific platforms will be provided at a later date.
