Geralt of Rivia won’t be getting any more free DLC in his final adventure — but the last freebie is well and truly worth it.
It’s the much vaunted New Game+ mode, allowing you to go back and sink even more hours into Geralt’s final grand adventure without having to sacrifice all your hard earned weapons and armour. CD Projekt RED announced the release of the mode this morning through GOG.com.
“Starting today, you never ever have to say goodbye to Geralt of Rivia and the gang, and a whole new world of high-level loot and enemies awaits to truly bring out The Witcher in you,” CDR wrote.
“If you feel like you strolled through the game for the story before, this is your chance to turn up the difficulty, stock up on potions, memorise your signs, plan your attacks, and really feel the constant pressure of a monster hunter’s daily “routine”. If you can call it that.”
If you’re using the GOG Galaxy launcher or the website, the announcement page has instructions on how to pick up the free 16 bits of DLC, most of which is cosmetic in nature or bits and pieces of weaponry. Those on Steam can simply navigate to this page and install the bits of DLC you want individually.
So now that Geralt finally has his New Game+ mode, will you be restarting your journey from White Orchard all over again — or will you wait for the release of the paid-for expansion, something which CDR has promised will introduce an area larger than the entirety of The Witcher 2?
