CD Projekt Red says they want to bring back “a time when add-on disks truly expanded games” with the announcement of two “massive” expansions for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt…
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 is 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 you can see, when CD Projekt Red says massive, they mean massive. But massive takes time. The developer plans to release Hearts of Stone in October while Blood and Wine will be available sometime in early 2016. CD Projekt Red co-founder Marcin Iwinski believes it’ll be worth. He said, “Both our expansions offer more hours of gameplay than quite a few standalone games out there.”
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on May 24.
