The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a gigantic game. Why not add in 10+ more hours?In the first of two planned expansions, The Witcher 3 gives us our first teaser for Hearts of Stone. It being a teaser, leaves us with not a lot to work with here in terms of what’s going on but our old friend Geralt is clearly in trouble and has been branded with some sort of magic.
A new game mechanic called ‘Runewords’ that will “significantly affect gameplay”, according to the press release. Expect new monsters, characters and even a new romance option. The expansion is designed for characters that are level 30 or above and take place in ‘No man’s land’ near Novigrad and Oxenfurt.
The Hearts of Stone expansion will take around 10 hours to complete and cost $9.99 on its own. It is included in the season pass for $25 that will include a second chunk of story DLC titled Blood & Wine.
