For their April Fools joke this year, CD Projekt Red ‘announced’ some Roach DLC, which includes “a horse you can finally identify with!”
April Loofs, Senior Executive Officer of Incremental Revenue Acquisition & Fun at CD Projekt Red, said, “We’re always listening to gamers, and gamers are telling us they are throwing money at the screen and nothing happens. That’s why we’re extremely thrilled to be able to make something happen.”
In the above video, you can see how the DLC was created. It carries this description:
A horse is a horse is a horse, of course.
Roach is the name of Geralt’s horses, each and every one in turn.
Not sure why he calls ‘em all that. Lazy? Doesn’t get attached? To animals?
Might be because one day he caught a roach, which is a common fresh-water fish. A big one.
Decided he’d celebrate by naming his horse after it.
We considered a bunch of options, but Doobie and Spliff seemed off-lore.
Anyways, here’s a special developer video that will show you Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Roach But Were Afraid to Ask.
Here’s one of the videos featured in the Roach trailer:
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will receive its final expansion, Blood and Wine, later this year.
