Developer CD Projekt Red promises at least 30 hours of new content in the $25 expansion pass
With a little over a month until the Witcher 3 launch, CD Projekt Red has illuminated its plans for expansion packs. The first expansion, titled “Hearts of Stone,” is set to launch in October. The pack will send protagonist Geralt into No Man’s Land to fulfill a contract for the mysterious Man of Glass. Then, slated for release sometime in early 2016, the second expansion, “Blood and Wine,” takes gamers to a new region that remains untainted by war where Geralt discovers a dark secret.
If payed DLC isn’t your thing, fear not! Last year, CD Projekt Red revealed that they planned to release two mini DLC packs a week for the first eight weeks after launch – all for free. When it was announced, CEO Marcin Iwiński said the extra content was “our way of saying thank you for buying our game.”
“Hearts of Stone” and “Blood and Wine” will be available à la carte for $9.99 and $19.99 respectively, or gamers can pick up both in the expansion pass for $25. The Witcher 3 and the first two mini DLCs – the Temerian armor set and the beard and hairstyle pack – launch on PC, Xbox One and PS4 May 19th.Follow @bearclawgaming
