The Witcher 3’s Free DLC for PS4 Finally Released in North America; Info on Bugs and Fixes Shared

on May 20, 2015 5:38 PM

CD Projekt RED promised a batch of two Free DLC for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on day one, but North American PS4 players were surprised not to find them anywhere in the game, nor they found a separate download on the PSN yesterday.

The good news is that they have just been released a few minutes ago, and they’re now available at the following links:

The first DLC gives Geralt a spiffy armor and covers Roach in his own horse armor, while the second allows players to customize the hero’s hairstyle and beard.

If you’re wondering where to buy the armor in game, Lead Quest Designer Mateusz Tomaszkiewicz gives us the hint on the official forums:

“You can buy this armor from merchant in White Orchard, he’s standing next to the tavern.”

Unfortunately, there’s a rare bug that could cause you to find the merchant dead, as mentioned by Community Coordinator Marcin Momot. Luckily this will be fixed in the next patch.

“Thanks for all the info regarding this bug. It is very rare but thanks to your input it will be fixed in the next patch. Thank you!”

Speaking of the hairstyle DLC, Quest Desiger Philipp Weber explained that it’s not possible to shave permanently, but regrowth takes a while:

“No, it’s not possible. But it takes a while until the beard grows again, don’t worry.”

Momot also mentioned that the team is looking at the problem caused by the small subtitles on PS4 and Xbox One, that have caused complaints among the community.

Finally, he clarified that if you’re waiting for the 1.02 patch in North America, you should wait no more, as it’s exclusive to Europe, since it solved a problem with the European version.
