The Witcher 3 "Hearts of Stone" Expansion Release Date Announced
CD PROJEKT RED has recently announced a release date for "Hearts of Stone," the first expansion pack for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. This expansion pack will be released on October 13, 2015.
"Hearts of Stone" once again puts players into the shoes of Geralt, professional monster hunter. He has been hired to deal with Olgierd von Everec, a bandit captain who is said to possess the power of immortality. This expansion allows players to experience an adventure involving the recruitment of break-in artists, a party with a ghost, and having to deal with a menagerie of bizarre creatures. It will have over ten hours of new adventures and include new characters, powerful monsters, romances, and a new story fueled by player choices.
The expansion pack will also include a brand new system of Runeswords that will change gameplay. Each Runesword impacts a different in-game mechanic, allowing players to experiment with new strategies and try out different tactics with the Runeswords.
Players can also purchase a limited boxed edition "Hearts of Stone" for about $19.99, which will be available at select retailers worldwide. The box will contain a digital download code for the expansion, two physical decks of the Gwent cards, and a manual detailing how to play the game.
