All Witcher 3 DLC will be free, which isn't something we see much of in the triple A game space. Indie games often come with free updates such as Terraria and Minecraft but this is pretty unique for a triple A game. I have little hope that EA, Ubi or 2K would do this but one could dream.

Well, I don't know where the definitions lie for AAA and indie, really. It's hard to define. But overall, I think I call CD Projekt Red an indie company.

The weird thing is, Burnout: Paradise, developed by Criterion Games, and published by EA, is one of the best in terms of free content. The game was expanded significantly, adding new vehicles, motorcycles, game modes, and tons more content for free. It wasn't until way after release, when they released a whole new island, that they started asking for money. It hasn't been that long ago that EA was the bad-guy-turned-good-guy, but even more recently they became the bad-guy-turned-good-guy-turned-bad-guy-again.

Makes sense how you look at CD Project Red BUT they own GOG too and even though they are independent they are pretty big now. I guess Valve might be Indie as they are not owned by anyone? It's a strange line between indie and non but yeah, I'd consider The Witcher 3 to be a triple A game.

Cool to hear about the free updates to burnout. I haven't played it before, but do like the occasional racing game.

Burnout Paradise is probably my favorite racing game. It's cheap on Steam and goes on sale in nearly every holiday sale, if you're interested.

That is, if you like arcadey racing and not realistic racing. I could never get into Gran Turismo and Forza, and those kinds of racers.

That's great to read! I really enjoyed the first two Witcher games and I've pre-ordered the third one back in August when GOG offered it for 20% off if you owned the first two (even if purchased on Steam). I'll be happy to get some free DLC as it comes out.
