Witcher 3 Game Director Talks Huge Expansions

In an interview with European gaming site GameReactor, The Witcher 3’s game director, Konrad Tomaszkiewicz, talked a little about what you can expect from the expansions.

For a while now we’ve all enjoyed the free DLC packs promised by CD Projeckt RED. From alternate costumes to additional haircuts styles we’ve had a nice assortment of content to hold us over while we play through the incredibly long RPG. Now, however, is the time to talk story expansions.

In his interview Tomaszkiewicz said that the team will be introducing new characters, new Gwent cards and new items. Tomaszkiewicz also said that the content should be on the longer side, and while he isn’t promising anything, that sounds like something you can more or less expect from the new content. Here’s what Tomaszkiewicz had to say about their upcoming expansions:

The expansion packs will be whole new storylines with all the elements you’ve got in the main story (like cutscenes, new characters, new items, new Gwent cards) and many, many more. They will be quite long. The first expansion will be around 10 hours and the second expansion will be around 20 hours… and I think it’s possible that they will be bigger, because it’s always like this (that when we plan some time or hours, it’s twice or something like this), but I’m not promising anything right now. And even now, if you sum up this 10 to 20 hours and you compare it to The Witcher 2, it’s almost the size of The Witcher 2. And it will be cool, it will be new stories, it will be very emotional stories and I think that people will be happy.

We can only hope the CD Projekt RED get a little carried away with their story DLC content. Regardless if it’s anything like the game they just created it’s sure to be a great time.

Hearts of Stone DLC is doesn’t have a release date, but is supposed to come out this fall. Blood and Wine is set to release some time early 2016.
