I checked the dates, and April 1 is still a while off. Which means this ridiculous story must be true; Geralt's beard will continue to grow in The Witcher 3 unless you shave, or download a DLC to stop the hair growing.

Downloadable content is a mixed bag, but CD Projekt RED is "making a statement" that it can be a force for good in the world, and not a price-gouging torture. To that end we'll be getting 16 DLC releases free.

That's right, 16 extra pieces of content at no charge for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Does the studio have no business sense? On the contrary, the DLC is all free because we "just paid full price" for the game.
