The Witcher 3: Hearts of Stone teased

CD Projekt RED has revealed the release date of Hearts of Stone, the first major expansion for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The DLC, releasing on October 13th, contains over 10 hours of new adventures, characters, monsters, romance and a new Runewords system.

First screens and teaser inside.



CD PROJEKT RED, creators of The Witcher series of games, announce the release date of Hearts of Stone, the first expansion to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.


"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."

Launching October 13th, 2015, Hearts of Stone packs over 10 hours of new adventures and introduces new characters, powerful monsters, unique romance, and a brand new storyline shaped by gamer choices. The expansion also introduces a brand new system of Runewords that significantly affects gameplay. Each Runeword will impact a different aspect of in-game mechanics and will allow the players to experiment with various strategies and tactics.

Along with the digital release, gamers will also be able to purchase a special, limited boxed edition of Hearts of Stone (SRP $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!

The studio launched a special initiative for owners of the digital Expansion Pass that will enable them to purchase the cards separately. All information about the initiative can be found at redeemgwent.com.

Hype intensifying. Witcher 3 is perhaps the best game I've ever played.

I got a bit bored towards the end for typical open world reasons. But that first half was amazing. Doubt in can bring myself to jump in for more though sadly.

Those screenshots are amazing. Wonder what post process settings were active.

Remember that time they waited till after the game was released and had your money to mention the downgrade? Not again, Red, not again.

    MrWhite Turns out everyone on that island had to survive lara from murdering them with an AK47. From fragile student, to trained military killing machine in next to no time. (2 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite What was this survival aspect they were meant to be pushing? I was under the impression from the devs that you had to, you know, do stuff to survive (2 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @Sdarts: Hated the first one, couldn't be arsed with the second. Wasn't Tomb Raider, or at least what I remembered it to be most memorable for. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Sdarts: already started. Already noticing dialogue changes. (3 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @KORNdog: Yeah, really great story. Also, make sure to replay a second time, the enhanced edition has much more elements and story for the second playthrough. It's worth it. (3 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Quite frankly, I'm excited for the StarCraft Remaster. I haven't played the original in years, and even though my brother has the CDs - and DLCs - it's very old game design wise. (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog That oxenfree story is going to be sticking with me for a while. Damn... (3 Hours ago)
