CD Projekt Red have announced today, that their upcoming title will receive two massive paid expansions. The studio released a statement via Press Release:
“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.”
The first expansion titled Hearts of Stone, will feature Geralt attempting to complete a contract for the mysterious Man of Glass. This new adventure will take players to No Man’s Land and Oxenfurt and will last about 10 hours.
Witcher 3’s second expansion, Blood and Wine will last 20 hours and introduce a brand new region in the game. Geralt will visit Toussaint, a land unspoiled by war but one that is also hiding an ancient secret behind its carefree atmosphere.
For those of you who are worried about the announcement of DLC before the game’s release, Iwiński had this to say:
“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.”
Players can expect new gear, enemies and more in the upcoming expansions. CD promises they will be “crafted with maximum attention to detail and quality by the joint forces of CD PROJEKT RED’s Warsaw and Cracow studios.”
The first expansion will debut this October, while Blood and Wine will release in the first quarter of 2016.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will release on May 19, 2015 for PS4, Xbox One and PC. Both expansions will be available on each of those platforms.
