While The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is still a month away from release, that isn’t stopping the Polish developer from preparing further content. While it was announced last year that The Witcher 3 would receive significant downloadable content, it’s only now that we get a better understanding at what they will be bringing.
“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.”
These two story-driven expansions, ‘Hearts of Stone’ and ‘Blood and Wine,’ will set Geralt on lengthy ten and twenty hour journeys. Hearts of Stone takes place in No Man’s Land and Oxenfurt while Blood and Wine introduces the brand new region of Toussaint. Both of these will be apart of the Expansion Pass, which will set purchasers back $25. Hearts of Stone will hit in October of this year, with Blood and Wine coming in the first quarter of 2016.
