We’re on week three of little extra free bits for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt [official site] from developers CD Projekt RED. This time, the two loads of freebies are a selection of unremarkable crossbows and a load of Nilfgaardian gear for folks who want to dress Geralt and his horse Roach like TOTAL SELL-OUTS and THE EMPEROR’S PATSIES.
The Nilfgaardian Armor Set gives Geralt a full set of Nilfgaardian leathers while Roach gets two-tone horse accessories. Roach’s blinkers, saddle, and saddlebags look pretty swish are pretty good for low levels too, worth picking up if you haven’t found a decent set yet. The armour doesn’t have any real special properties but it’s solid enough and I suppose some people enjoy looking like a narc. Supposedly it comes in both high-level and low-level versions, dependent on your level, but it sounds like that’s a bit wonky and not working out for everyone right now.
The Elite Crossbow Set does give some neat-looking arrowguns but their stats aren’t anything special. If you haven’t found one close to your level yet, this trio for levels 7, 14, and 21 might see you right.
We’ve still another ten loads of ‘DLC’ to come, to be released in pairs every Wednesday. We’ve seen one new quest so far, in the first week, and it’d be nice to have more. More horse armour wouldn’t go amiss either.
