The Witcher 3: Hearts of Stone, the first major expansion to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, is almost upon us, and CD Project Red wants to make sure you are properly existed about it. Enter the expansion’s launch trailer, filled with violence, death, monsters and flirting – everything that makes a proper game in The Witcher franchise.

Hearts of Stone takes us back to the¬†Northern¬†Kingdoms for 10 more hours of content. 10 more hours of “new characters, powerful monsters, unique romance, and a brand new storyline shaped by gamer choices.” That “unique ronamce”, by the way, is with Shani – a returning character from the original Witcher title. Sounds like a lot of fun to me.

The first expansion will be out October 13 for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The second expansion, Blood & Wine, will arrive early next year.
