The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will have two expansions, where you can buy an ‘Expansion Pass’. One expansion is called “Hearts of Stone” which will be released in October 2015, and the other is “Blood and Wine” which will release in Q1 of 2016.
Hearts of Stone will take Geralt on an all-new 10-hour 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.
Blood and Wine, a 20-hour tale that will introduce the all-new in-game region of Toussaint, will take Geralt to a land untainted by war, where a bloody secret awaits.
The upcoming expansions will offer gamers new adventures, gear and foes and will feature characters both new and dearly missed — all crafted with maximum attention to detail and quality by the joint forces of CD PROJEKT RED’s Warsaw and Cracow studios.
Marcin Iwiński, CD PROJEKT RED co-founder comments on these two piece of expansions:
“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,” says 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.”
“While we’re offering the Expansion Pass now, we want to make one thing clear: don’t buy it if you have any doubts. Wait for reviews or play The Witcher and see if you like it first. As always, it’s your call,” Iwiński concludes.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will release for PC, PS4, XB1 on 19th of May, 2015. For more info, go here.
