"The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt," other than the two expansion the two expansions mentioned will also include the 16-piece DLC delegated to the game since it started. These DLC packs significantly allows players to acquire new sets of weapons, change Geralt's looks from his haircut to facial hair. Gwent cards are also included in the DLCs and a different look for characters like Yennefer, Triss and Ciri were also made available.
