The Witcher 3 getting two major expansions

'Hearts of Stone' this year and 'Blood and Wine' early next.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will get two major expansions post-release, collectively adding 30 hours of additional playtime to the game, CD Projekt RED announced.

The two expansions are:

Hearts of Stone (October 2015)

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 (Q1 2016)

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.

Both expansions will be available together via an “Expansion Pass,” or separately. Prices have not been announced. Both will offer new adventures, gear, and enemies, as well as characters both new and familiar.

“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,” CD Projekt RED co-founder Marcin Iwinski said in a press release.

“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 Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on May 19.
