This week's chunk of free DLC for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt includes yet another new outift for everyone's favourite grizzled monster-slayer, plus a brand new mission set in the ganer-filled island region of Skellige.

Fittingly, the new armour set is the Skellige Armour, which looks kind of like the cool mail suits that the Riders of Rohan wore in the Lord of the Rings movies.

CD Projekt RED "excited to switch to guns" with Cyberpunk 2077, "more and more people" moving onto project

This year was a no-show for Cyberpunk 2077 at E3, but that was by design. In fact we aren't going to be seeing anything substantial at all for about two more years. The initial reveal trailer was to 'gauge interest'.

The response "has been incredible," said CD Projekt RED co-CEO Marcin Iwinski, and it also helped them avoid 'burning out on swords'. The studio is kept "energized with Cyberpunk."

CD Projekt RED are dishing out two more free DLCs this week for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and this time it's a wardrobe change for sorceress Triss Merigold, who puts on more revealing attire with an Alternate Costume.

Perhaps of greater interest than some virtual norks is the addition of a Scavenger Hunt quest with the second bit of free DLC. We can now track down the Wolf School Gear, which is Geralt's own school.

We're in the eye of the E3 storm but CD Projekt RED has released 'hotfix' patch 1.06 for The Witcher 3. The curse of the "endless loading screen" during the Lord of Undvik quest has been lifted.

Geralt will no longer go swimming while you're in the menu either, so his clothes should stay dry. The team have also fixed an issue stopping more than one item through Crafting/Alchemy.

Latest free Witcher 3 DLC adds a new Gwent card set

This week's free DLC for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt adds a whole new set of Gwent cards for use in the addictive (or tedious, depending on your point of view) game-within-a-game.

CD Projekt hasn't detailed this new set just yet, but it's called Ballad Heroes, and is described as a 'Neutral' set. That suggests to me that you can filter these cards in through whichever factional set you tend to favour.
