Back in September we brought you the teaser for The Witcher 3’s incoming DLC, Hearts of Stone. It’s been nearly a month now and for those of you wondering where this might be, well, Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe might just have some good news for you.
Today, Bandai Namco have released the launch trailer for Hearts of Stone and you can see it at the foot of this very page.
This expansion to The Witcher 3 will cram in over 10 hours of new adventures, introducing new characters, powerful monsters, unique romance and a brand new storyline shaped by your very own choices.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Hearts of Stone DLC will launch on the 13th of October.
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.
