CD Project Red has announced that their upcoming RPG The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will get two major expansions, which will give the game an additional 30+ hours of content.
The first expansion, entitled Hearts of Stone, will be the shorter of the two, with it pegged as adding 10+ hours of content. It will see Geralt go to the wilds of No Man’s Land and the nooks and alleys of Oxenfurt, with him competing for a contract from mysterious figure the Man of Glass.
The second one, called Blood and Wine, is set to clock in at 20+ hours and will introduce a new region to the game called Toussaint, a land untainted by war. However, the carefree atmosphere and rituals are hiding ’an ancient, bloody secret’.
“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, co-founder of CD Projekt Red. “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 is set for release in October, with Blood and Wine given a release window of the first quarter of 2016.
The expansions pricing is currently set at $9.99 for Hearts of Stone, $19.99 for Blood and Wine with the expansion pass for both of them at $24.99. You can also get the game plus expansion pass for $84.99 on Xbox One and PS4 and $79.99 on PC.
