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.

Games, lower prices on things, and all firmware stuff sorted, and I see now reason why it wont be a success. So basically, about 6 months to a year to wait (1 Hour ago)
Basically the way I see it is this: it needs a handful of games, some sociable ones, and a few of its other niggling caveats to be consolidated as to be reasonable. (1 Hour ago)
as if they'd very little understanding of what the thing actually is, and what it's trying to do. (1 Hour ago)
Yeah, most seem reasonable in their concerns. But it sounds resoundingly positive as far as the hardware goes. Unless you're IGN of course. They basically just shat on it (1 Hour ago)
Stardew Valley multiplayer on Switch. SOLD! (1 Hour ago)
Well DF's review was pretty good and hardly all positive. I think if you could find something in their review to validate either decision. (1 Hour ago)
@GriftGFX: Most seem to be, within good reason. It's all mostly positive with a healthy dose of trepidation and ambiguity. And then you read IGN's review...how are they even considered professional? (1 Hour ago)
