CD Projekt Red has announced that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be getting some free DLC based on The Witcher Netflix series later this year.
The studio made the announcement as part of this year’s WitcherCon broadcast over the weekend. While the company did indeed keep to its promise of no new game announcements, it did reveal this upcoming DLC as well as confirming the game’s next-gen update is still coming for later this year.
There were also a bunch of announcements as to several The Witcher projects in the works at Netflix. Chief among those was a date and trailer for Season Two of the live action series, starring Henry Cavill. Returning alongside Cavill are Freya Allen as Ciri, Anya Chalotra as Yennefer and Joey Batey as Jasker to name a few, the second series drops on December 17.
If that wasn’t enough, spin-0ff anime The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf has also been dated for release even sooner, dropping onto Netflix on August 23. We also got some further casting updates on prequel series The Witcher: Blood Origin, with Sophia Brown now taking the lead role of Eile after Jodie Turner Smith was forced to drop out due to scheduling issues. She’ll be joined by Star Trek: Discovery‘s Michelle Yeoh, who’s also been cast as sword-elf Scian.

There’s currently no firm release date for the Netflix inspired DLC coming to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt or the next-gen updates just yet outside of “later this year”, but more info is promised in the future.
