There won't be any free Witcher 3: Wild Hunt DLC this week, but developer CD Projekt Red still had some big news to share today about add-on content for the open-world role-playing game.

Its final piece of free DLC will be a New Game Plus mode. We don't know when it will launch or what's included, but you can check out a teaser image below.

New Game Plus is The Witcher 3's sixteenth free piece of DLC. Others have included things like alternate costumes and hairstyles for Geralt and Yennefer, along with new finishing moves and horse armor.

Looking ahead, The Witcher 3's first of two paid expansions--Hearts of Stone--will launch in October. This expansion may see the return of a character from The Witcher 1.

New Game Plus modes vary from game to game, but they typically allow players who have completed a game once to start over with extra rewards or challenges for the second go-around.
