The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt isn’t out for about a month, but CD Projekt RED has already announced it has big ideas for its future. The game will be getting two massive expansions, filled with hours of new story and adventures, called “Hearts of Stone” and “Blood and Wine.” Find more about them below.
Hearts of Stone will take Geralt on an all-new, 10-hour-plus adventure into the wilds of No Man’s Land and the nooks and alleys of Oxenfurt, where he’ll try to complete a contract from the mysterious Man of Glass. Caught in a thick tangle of deceit, Geralt will need all his cunning and strength to solve the mystery and emerge unscathed.
Blood and Wine, a 20-hour-plus tale that will introduce the all-new in-game region of Toussaint, will take Geralt to a land untainted by war, where an atmosphere of carefree indulgence and knightly ritual masks an ancient, bloody secret.
“With the development of Wild Hunt coming to an end, the team has embarked upon the creation of two new really big adventures set in The Witcher universe,” said Marcin Iwiński, CD Projekt RED co-founder. “We remember the time when add-on disks truly expanded games by delivering meaningful content. As gamers, we’d like to bring that back. We’ve said in the past that if we ever decide to release paid content, it will be vast in size and represent real value for the money. Both our expansions offer more hours of gameplay than quite a few standalone games out there.”
Both expansions will be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, and will be separate from the 16 pieces of free DLC The Witcher 3 will be getting upon launch. Hearts of Stone will arrive in October, while Blood and Wine will be available sometime in Q1 2016.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is scheduled for May 19 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.Some of our posts include links to online retail stores. We get a small cut if you buy something through one of our links. Don't worry, it doesn't cost you anything extra.
