Two sizeable expansions have been announced for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, with the first due in October and the second coming in Q1 2016.
The first expansion, Hearts of Stone, promises to take Geralt on an all-new, 10-hour-plus adventure into the wilds of No Man’s Land where he’ll try to complete a contract from the mysterious Man of Glass.
Blood and Wine, a mammoth 20-hour-plus campaign, will introduce the all-new in-game region of Toussaint, a land untainted by war, where an atmosphere of carefree indulgence and knightly ritual masks an ancient, bloody secret.
The pair will be available via an Expansion Pass, and presumably individual purchases as well.
“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.”
The standalone game launches in May.
