The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt to receive two major expansions

Dev pegs them at 30 hours of content combined.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt developer CD Projekt Red has revealed two major expansions to its upcoming fantasy RPG.

Entitled Hearts of Stone & Blood and Wine, these two add-ons should take players in the neighborhood of 30 hours to complete.

Hearts of Stone is pegged to be the shorter of the two expansions with a roughly 10-hour playtime. Set in the wilds of No Man's Land and Oxenfurt, series stalwart Geralt of Rivia will get roped into a contract with a mysterious figure called the Man of Glass. We suspect it won't be a crossover with Samuel L Jackson's character from Unbreakable.

Blood and Wine is slated to be the larger adventure with an estimated playtime of 20 hours. This will be set in the all new region of Toussaint, a supposedly peaceful land hiding a dark secret.

"With the development of Wild Hunt coming to an end, the team has embarked upon the creation of two new really big adventures set in The Witcher universe," said CD Projekt Red co-founder Marcin Iwiński. "We remember the time when add-on disks truly expanded games by delivering meaningful content. As gamers, we'd like to bring that back. We've said in the past that if we ever decide to release paid content, it will be vast in size and represent real value for the money. Both our expansions offer more hours of gameplay than quite a few standalone games out there."

Hearts of Stone is due in October, while Blood and Wine won't premiere until Q1 2016. They'll both be available on PC, Xbox One and PS4.

The Expansion Pass is going for £20 / $24.99, though individually Hearts of Stone will be $9.99 (about £7) while Blood and Wine will be $19.99 (about £14). Alternatively, you could save a few quid by buying the game with the Expansion Pass for $79.99 (about £54).
