The Story Is Expanding For The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt With DLC

The first expansion for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Hearts Of Stone, has a release date and some details on how it will expand upon The Witcher 3

If you are ready for the first real expansion for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt then get even more ready as it looks like it is coming on October 10th. We've been given a plethora of free DLC for the game from Warner Bros. so it is high time that we get a bigger, better, and purchasable bit of DLC for The Witcher 3 out of CD Projekt RED. Makes sense given the amazing run The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has had and is keeping up with. No point in slowing down of course. This of also means that the new DLC for The Witcher 3 isn't going to be some small bit of facial hair and new cards for Gwent. No, there is a lot more coming to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in the way of Hearts Of Stone on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

We are getting ten more hours of new adventures and characters added to The Witcher 3 here. We are also getting a score of new monsters to kill, another romance to have and a new story line that is forged by our choices in in the game. Sounds like a pretty beefy thing here. It needs to be as it looks like CD Projekt RED is looking to get $19.99 USD for it. At that price point there needs to be a lot added to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt with this DLC. That or, I don't know, more Gwent cards as that became a huge success from the game and Warner Bros. needs to ride those coattails as long as possible.

Wait; there will be more Gwent cards from The Witcher 3 with this DLC? Only if you buy the special, limited boxed edition of Hearts Of Stone though. It looks like if you can find a retailer who happens to be selling this version of the DLC for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt you can not only score more in-game cards but also two physical decks of Gwent cards so you can then play the game without the need of The Witcher 3 to be on screen or you be at home. Or anywhere else that you could be playing video games for that matter. So a selling point is to be able to play a game from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt without needing to play The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt…interesting…

Step again into the shoes of Geralt of Rivia, a professional monster slayer, this time hired to defeat a ruthless bandit captain, Olgierd von Everec, a man who possesses the power of immortality. The expansion lets you choose your own way through an adventure that includes recruiting a crew of break-in artists, spending a night partying with a ghost and outsmarting the most bizarre creatures Geralt has ever faced.

Along with the digital release, gamers will also be able to purchase a special, limited boxed edition of Hearts Of Stone (MSRP $19.99/19.99€) available at selected retailers worldwide. The box contains a digital download code for the expansion, two masterfully crafted physical decks of Gwent, the card game set in the world of The Witcher, and a detailed manual explaining the rules. With two unique sets of cards, Monsters and Scoia’tael, ready to go, players can now engage in tactical combat on a grand scale outside of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt!
