Having fulfilled promises to release a raft of free DLC for The Witcher 3, which launched in May, CD Projekt Red is moving on to its premium expansions. The first, Hearts of Stone, launches Oct. 13 for all platforms — PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.
In Hearts of Stone, Geralt of Rivia, the titular Witcher, heads into the city of Oxenfurt to complete a contract from the Man of Glass. He's got to take down "a ruthless bandit captain" named Olgierd von Everec. CD Projekt Red says the expansion should add another 10 hours of gameplay and offer a new storyline shaped by the player's choices, just like the main game.
Hearts of Stone will cost $9.99. The next expansion, Blood and Wine, is planned for a release in the first three months of 2016. It will cost $19.99. Blood and Wine is expected to contribute another 20 hours of gameplay to the overall title. The two are included in The Witcher 3's $24.99 Expansion pass.
