CD Project Red has revealed the final free DLC for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and it is the long requested “New Game Plus” mode for the game.
New game+ should have been there from the start.Was hoping for some sort of arena like ryse for the final dlc.
I guess this means it'll be out of beta testing soon and should be ready to play soon! Fingers crossed!
I laugh at foolish comments like these. I beat this game over a month ago and loved every second of it and I'm sure they have only made the game better since then. If you think the Witcher 3 has bad technical issues then well frankly...that's idiotic.
Such a bitter gamer. QQ
"beta testing"???????? LOL been playing this game since launch and the problems the game had were very minor for me. Would hate to wait as long as you have to play it. All games are in Alpha if this game is in beta.
Ungrateful much? Its all free there's literally nothing to complain about.
Ungrateful?? Lol! If you were gaming for the last couple decades you should know that game+ mode should have came standard with the game and not in the form of dlc.
These folks are incredibly ungrateful. I mean a 200 hour game that had a fantastic story, and some of the best quests I've ever played all for only $60. But since there's no game+ mode CDPR screwed us, lied to us, stole our money, and MS is also probably to blame somehow.
Only a 200 hour game if it let you play that long since yours worked im o so happy for you. But! And that's a big but! (Lol that's what he said) that was not the case for me and I'm sure quite a few more couldn't finish the game. At about 60 hours my game basically turned into a $60 Frisbee. And not a very good Frisbee either it didn't go very far.
Can ya believe it? Fans asked for NG+, fans get NG+, fans become irate because NG+ wasn't in-game from beginning, even though most of these irate gamers still haven't finished the game yet. We deserve crappy companies like EA who DON'T listen to the fans.
@ kalebninja "there's literally nothing to complain about." Apparently you're unfamiliar with gamers these days.
@eklektic The fact that others would pool me into the same group of people as you ("gamers") makes me sick. OT: A big thanks to CDPR for making one of the best games I've played in recent memory. So much heart and dedication went into and oozes out of The Witcher 3. And an even bigger shout-out to them for supporting their game as hard as they are, as well as providing free content for us to continue enjoying their incredible game with.
If you insist it should have came with the game then close your eyes and pretend the game just came out. Its free. Complaining about it is just stupid
Look maybe they made a bad choice not including a New Game+, maybe they didn't have time to debug this mode before release or maybe they never intended to include it; whatever their reason was they listened to the fans and gave them what they wanted, this is what counts in the end.
They're a small team that made a AAA game on a smaller budget then most games coming out today. Unlike some studios I believe that CDPR created these add ons after the game was finished hence why theyre releasing it for free.
@ArmyofDarkness We are talking the only developer offering this much content for free. At least that I know of. And then the expansion pack they are selling, being a true expansion pack, is even reasonably priced. And then you're complaining because their fairness doesn't hold up to your obviously exponentially high ideals. They are a AAA, though still entirely indie developer, and they are completely about treating their customer with respect . . . and then you just spit on their efforts. Maybe this just isn't the medium for you, because those like you obviously can't be satisfied.
@thepope Its Obama's fault.He should have Vetoed prop 270 . Now Developers cant do exactly everything,every single gamer wants them to do, exactly how every single gamer wants them to do it.Thanks Obama, for making the impossible stay impossible..
Uh, yeah. It's free, so stop
What is new game + anyway??
NG+ typically allows you to start a new game while maintaining certain aspects (character stats, abilities, items, etc.) of your previously completed game.
Yep. At last I can start a new play through.
I've been waiting for this to this to jump back into the game. Only problem is rare replay is coming on the 4th and gears on the 25th. I may not have time.
Dude, I'm in the exact same boat. I get you.
finally - a reason to jump back in to W3!
Sweet shit. I don't know that I'll really want to play thru it again once I'm done spending so much time collecting every last scrap of everything to begin with, but it's good to know that if I wanted to go back thru to possibly see a different ending or whatever, I would have more reason to now. I guess..
Hey I think this game has 20+ different endings so this might be a good thing.
To be honest all them endings sound good on paper but I thought it was a bit lackluster how the game endings was. I got the good ending. The last sequence with ciri was great but after that it felt a bit cheap but to give credit 30 odd different endings would be difficult to do any other way. I suppose they had to do it this way.
The inventory update was the best thing to happen to that game. That and the ingredients pin feature.
Game keeps getting better and better. THANK YOU!
This wasnt already in it? You'd think most rpgs of this scale would include it day one.
It probably was always planned as the final piece of DLC from the very beginning. Makes sense really. Only a small fraction of TW3 players would have completely finished the game at this stage. I've clocked well over 200 hours and only just scratched the surface of Skyrim!! Oh *ahem* I mean Skellige,
150 for me and I've moved past Skellige for now because I'm 5 levels ahead of the main quest.
Oh god! Is there anything CDPR WON'T do for their fans! Best out there atm.
Rockstar has been releasing free "dlc" lmao or as they call it updates into gta online for the last 2 years. Yet cdprojectred decided to do it and there gods of the industry? Lmao what a joke and most the shit you get from cdpr is shit that def should have been in game lol like a low tier horse armor or different clothes for npc's now new game+. These so called "dlc's" are pathetic.
"These so called "dlc's" are pathetic." You really think that? True, it may be content they ran out of time to include in the original release but it is still nice to get all these little upgrades periodically, for free. Plus it is also a good piracy deterent for PC gamers as not many pirate release groups would bother to continually update their patches. Most, if not all, online games recieve continual DLC or updates as you call it, for example BF4. That's how devs continue to stabilize the player population and keep people interested. It's not rocket science. It's business. To recieve such continual support and content upgrades for a single player, offline game is almost unheard of. Understand now?
Nope still sounds like content they couldn't get in before launch and labeled it free "dlc". But i do understand you liked the game and will defend it regardless.
@eklektic Last time I checked gta 5 did not have a game time of 200h for its single player campaign and no matter how much you emphasize the online component, the scope of gta 5 (I really love this game) is just a fraction of the witcher 3 in almost any possible way. Sure getting updates for a completely broken online experience was a nice gesture from rockstar, but you could argue that they could have included all the mission updates and delivered a playable online mode when they shipped the game. I don't understand why you downplay The Witcher 3 and it's free DLC so much. You probably never played it.
Ye but GTA online is crap so no one gives a crap just like no one really cares about GTA V anymore because it's boring.
Don't even compare the awful GTA V and R* to CDPR. All GTA V gets is cars and clothes updates on a bad Online mode. Not to mention the gameplay mechanics of GTA V are oversimplified making it the worst GTA in the series. They could have added far better stuff to the game via updates but they focused on stupid Online stuff.
@eklektic you mean like heists in GTA online? Was promised forever, should have been in from the start, and only came out when the remastered edition was ready? Yeah Rockstar can do no wrong.
despite my love for the game, there is good chance you are right about that. It does seem that way a little.
What is the point of NG+? This game is story driven.
20+ different endings, and whole swathes of the game can be missed according to the decisions you make.
WTF ?! 20+ different endings ?! are you sure about this ?!
lolz. Yes, it technically has many different endings, but all of them more or less come down to the narrator talking about it in a slide show. In reality, I'd say it only has three endings, and those are the ones involving the fate of Ciri.
Its all shit that should have been in game already but CDPR have everyone convinced they are the second coming. HA!.
Those lying bastards!!!
Add a free dlc to fix the Ps4 and Xbox one xhit framerate.How about 30fps lock option dlc..i guess they cant achieve that the poor guys.With every patch the framerate gets worst,but CDPR must see it has improvement because they always mention this on the patch logs.
freedom of speech is done very good then ...Sony please bring back socom 2 us navy seals as a remaster and tomb raider the last revelation ...PLEASE HERE US......
I'm liking all these freebies and patches, glad I didn't start playing yet.
Started playing with the 1.7 patch. Coincided with the second half of my vacation, luckily enough, which I spent at home.
NG+??? My LVL 35 Geralt is ready!
Seriously! Doing these old quests and getting 1xp for them is pitiful.
I know right? Gets on my nerves man...
Hopefully we can get higher difficulty trophies to pop now :) Also, please CDPR fix the Card Collector trophy bug. I completed my deck one day after the patch hit and the trophy has completely stopped popping for everyone. At least let us carry our gwent decks into NG+.
This is the last thread I'll ever read and it's also the last one I'll ever write in. I'm so done with fucking ungrateful, whiny little children. It's impossible to complain about this, yet a multitude (I'm guessing because I refuse to read the whole thing) have managed to do just that. How I've found myself reading the comments section again is beyond me, but rest assured I'm done with it. What a waste of energy and time. Fuck fanboys. <take that and run with it losers.
CdP are known for not doing ng+... but they broke tradition because the fans asked for it. They weren't "holding out" or anything like that They just never add that feature. We are lucky they listen and care about their fans or wed never have got it.
Shame it took so long, i already have 10 hours+ on my second playthrough
Super excited for this! I'm about to finish my first playthrough, so this will come just in time for a second one! :)
Its pretty cool that the developer of the Witcher is releasing all these free downloads.
Neat that they are putting this in. I wish the hardest setting was harder to begin with but I may give this new game plus a try if I can get myself to go back and ignore my backlog.
