The Witcher 2 expansions hinted at, all DLC to be free

In the same Facebook Q&A that gave considerable hope for a future console version of the game, The Witcher 2: Assassin’s of Kings developer CD Projekt RED departed with another few interesting tidbits.

Namely, a developer from the studio said: “Let me announce that all our DLCs will be FREE. All of them,” which is certainly awfully nice of them. Here’s hoping the DLC plan is a substantial one.

“If anything will be for purchase,” it was added, “those will be expansion packs.” Sounds like plans of a little something-something may be in the cooker, not that the game itself won’t deliver; with no sidequests, the The Witcher 2 is said to clock in at around 40 hours.

But back to the free add-ons; the first, a side-quest titled Troll Trouble, can be expected “together with the game release,” which just happens to be tomorrow, May 17, worldwide.
