Witcher 3 dev: Extra content should be 'free of charge'
The makers of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt don't believe in charging for small updates or downloadable content — at least not in most cases.
Game director Konrad Tomaszkiewicz told Examiner, "We could sell extra content to gamers ‘down the road,’ but we don’t believe in that. We believe patches, fixes, and additional content should be provided to gamers free of charge. Only something really big, and something that will not make you feel ripped off, justifies a price tag.”
He said, "If we ever decide to charge you for something, we think you will appreciate what you get in return."
So in other words, no horse armor DLC. It's a refreshing stance in an industry that's leaning toward season passes and microtransactions.
The Witcher 3 action-role-playing game is set to release on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in 2014.
