Two expansions announced for The Witcher 3

The Witcher 3 may not be in stores, but it hasn’t stopped developer CD Projekt RED from announcing two expansions that will be headed to the open world RPG once it releases next month.

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, CD Projekt RED co-founder.

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 first of the two expansions, Hearts of Stone, is penned in for an October release. A 10-hour campaign awaits Geralt as he takes on a contract from the ‘mysterious Man of Glass. The second of the two expansions doubles the gameplay time to 20 hours, has a release window of the first quarter of 2016 and  is set in a new region called Toussaint.

While we’re offering the Expansion Pass now, we want to make one thing clear: don’t buy it if you have any doubts. Wait for reviews or play The Witcher and see if you like it first. As always, it’s your call,

Iwiński concludes.
