CD Projekt RED details the upcoming two expansions for its open world RPG.
If you thought The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt would be huge on release, then think again – CD Projekt RED has revealed details on the game’s Expansion Pass which will had over 30 hours of additional gameplay on top of the base game.
The first expansion is Hearts of Stone which sees Geralt accept a contract from the Man of Glass and journey into No Man’s Land and Oxenfurt. The second expansion is Blood and Wine which will feature the region of Toussiant and have Geralt encounter his fair share of indulgences and secrets. While the first expansion releases in October, the second will be out in Q1 2016.
CD Projekt RED co-founder Marcin Iwiński stated that, “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. 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. 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.”
It should be noted that the Expansion Pass will cost $24.99 for all platforms and those picking up the retail version on PC will need to pick up the Season Pass on GOG. Head here to pre-order it now.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is out on May 19th for PC, Xbox One and PS4.
