Look what’s live: the launch trailer for The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt: Hearts of Stone, the first batch of expansion content for the game. According to the developers, it should add about ten new hours of gameplay and the storyline will be shaped by your own choices. Here’s CD Projekt Red’s official description….
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.
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.
Despite the clear title “launch trailer” the DLC itself will not be out for another week. Look for it Tuesday, October 13, wherever digital things are sold.
