I remember looking on in jealous wonder last May as our Rich reviewed The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt. CD Projekt Red and Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe have certainly hit paydirt with this IP and they’re looking to expand the franchise further with the announcement of some new DLC.
The Hearts of Stone DLC will pack in over ten hours of fresh adventures, new characters, powerful monsters, unique romance and a brand new storyline, which will be shaped by gamer choices.
Become Geralt once more and experience the new Runewords system that significantly affects gameplay. Each Runeword will impact a different aspect of the in-game mechanics and will allow players to experiment with differing tactics and strategies.
Hearts of Stone will not just be available digitally, however. If you pop along to GAME in the UK at launch, you may well be able to get your sticky hands on a limited boxed edition, as a store exclusive. This boxed edition will contain a digital download code, two crafted physical decks of Gwent, with Monsters and Scoia’tael decks and a detailed manual to explain the rules of the card game.
You’ve not been forgotten if you own the digital Season Pass too, as the developers have launched a special initiative for you, that will enable you to purchase the cards separately. All information on this can be found here.
You will be able to get hold of The Witcher 3 Hearts of Stone DLC on the 13th of October on Xbox One.
Here’s your teaser.
