The real, no doubt about it, honest-to-god final piece of free DLC for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will drop shortly, and it's not a new quest or a new piece of clothing, but rather an excuse to go back and play the whole damn thing again.

CD Projekt RED has teased before that "new and dearly missed" characters will be turning up in the expansions. The studio refuses to confirm whether it's her saying they'll "leave that for the community to figure out."
