The first The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt expansion is coming next week, October 16th in the form of a DLC entitled Hearts of Stone. Hearts of Stone packs over 10 hours of new adventures and introduces new characters, powerful monsters, unique romance, and a brand new storyline. All of which like the core game, is affected by your actions and choices.
Not to rest on their laurels, CD Projekt Red will also introduce a new game mechanic called Runewords. Runeword will impact a different aspect of in-game mechanics and will allow the players to experiment with various strategies and tactics.
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.
