The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt releases this May and CD Projekt RED has already planned two massive expansion packs for it. These two packs will offer 30+ hours of gameplay in total. The first one – called Hearts of Stone – will be released this October, while the second one – called Blood and Wine – will be coming in 2016.
Marcin Iwinski, CD PROJEKT RED co-founder, said:
“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. 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.”
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.
On the other hand, 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.
As CD Projekt RED noted, the upcoming expansions will offer gamers new adventures, gear and foes and will feature characters both new and old.
