The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be seeing its first expansion next month.
CD Projekt Red announced in an email today that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt‘s first expansion Hearts of Stone will be releasing on October 13. The expansion will feature “over 10 hours of new adventures and introduces new characters, powerful monsters, unique romance, and a brand new storyline shaped by gamer choices.” There will also be a new system of Runewords that the company says will “significantly affect gameplay.”
“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 description reads. “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.”
Alongside a digital release, Hearts of Stone will have a limited boxed edition, available at select retailers for $19.99 / €19.99, that will include a digital code for the game, two physical decks of Gwent cards, and a rulebook.
Until then, here are a few pictures to hold you over.
