Two expansions and a season pass announced for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

CD Projekt Red has announced two massive expansions - Hearts of Stone & Blood and Wine for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

“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 Iwiski, 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.”

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, a 20-hour-plus tale, will introduce the all-new in-game region of Toussaint and will take Geralt to a land untainted by war, where an atmosphere of carefree indulgence and knightly ritual masks an ancient, bloody secret.

“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,” Iwiski concludes.

The upcoming expansions will offer gamers new adventures, gear and foes and will feature characters both new and dearly missed - all crafted with maximum attention to detail and quality by the joint forces of CD Projekt Red's Warsaw and Cracow studios.

Hearts of Stone will premiere in October, while Blood and Wine is slated for release in the first quarter of 2016.

Both expansions will be available on all three platforms: Xbox One, PC, PlayStation 4.

I thought all the DLC was going to be free for this game?

I still commend CD Project Red. This is the way things should be done in gaming. We pay for actual expansions the way we used to do it in games like StarCraft and what people are currently paying for under the guise of DLC should be on disc unlockables that are earned by gameplay not nickel & dimeing us.

Pretty sure these are still DLC, so all the DLC is not free...
