The Witcher 3: Nilfgaard armor and elite crossbows for this week's free DLC

The Witcher 3 (opens in new tab) is getting more post-launch love from developer CD Projekt RED this week, as the company remains committed to its plan to release free DLC every week past the game’s May 19 release date. Sixteen pieces of free DLC are planned, and we’ve already seen (opens in new tab) ways in which to dress up heroes Geralt and Yennefer, as well as a new contract mission. So what’s in store for players this week?

Why, a Nilfgaardian armor and elite crossbow set of course. Check ‘em out:

No details on what makes an elite crossbow better than a typical one - other than the fact that one appears to have golden ram’s horns, which is pretty metal as far as medieval fantasy goes - but players with a sense of style should feel comfortable in the armor of Nilfgaard, an empire with a strict set of codes on behavior and fashion.

Hey, just because you’ve got to slay monsters for coin doesn’t mean you can’t look good doing it.
