CD Projekt Red is already keeping fans playing The Witcher 3 with its gradual roll out of 16 free DLCs for the game. However, we do have more to look forward to in the form of two expansion packs, one to launch towards the end of this year and another to launch early next year.
Now CD Projekt Red has revealed more details about its expansions, more specifically, how big they are going to end up being. It seems the developer never wants you to stop playing its game as in an interview with GameReactor, Witcher game director, Konrad Tomaszkiewicz, explained that the two expansions would be about as large as The Witcher 2.
Now he means large content wise, not just in map size, which is great news as The Witcher 3 was already a great game and now we are essentially going to get a whole new game’s worth of content with these new expansion packs.
“The expansion packs will be whole new storylines with all elements you got in the main story: cutscenes, new characters, new items, new Gwent cards and many more. Even now, if you sum up these 10 and 20 hours and you compare it to The Witcher 2, it’s almost the size of The Witcher 2. It will be cool. It will be new stories, and it will be emotional stories. I think that people will be happy.”
The Witcher 3’s first expansion is titled ‘Heart of Stone’ and will be the shorter of the two planned. It launches in October this year. A standalone price has not yet been announced but we do know that the expansion pass costs £20, which isn’t a bad deal considering the amount of content on offer.

KitGuru Says: The Witcher 3 swiftly became one of my favourite games, being one of the few that I’ve racked up more than 100 hours in so I’m looking forward to these new expansions. From the sounds of it they are going to offer plenty of value for money as well. Are any of you still playing The Witcher? Will you play the expansions when they come out?
