The Witcher 3's First Expansion Receives Details, Launch Date

There have been 16 free pieces of downloadable content (the last of which gave us a New Game+) but now it's time to talk about the real expansions.

Developer CD Projekt Red has announced that the first premium expansion for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Hearts of Stone, will launch on October 13. This will add about 10 hours of gameplay and has Geralt venturing into a placed called "No Man's Land."

In the teaser trailer below, it looks like Geralt is a prisoner of some not-so-nice people (one has a human head hanging from his belt), and a mysterious man offers to help. During this new story-based adventure, Geralt will also meet other new characters, powerful monsters, and he'll even experience a "unique romance." Here's part of the studio's description:

"The expansion lets you choose your own path through an experience 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."

This add-on will also let players try a new "Runewords" system that somehow affects the gameplay. Each Runeword has an impact on various in-game mechanics, which lets players "experiment with various strategies and tactics." Sounds intriguing...

Lastly, this expansion will be available in limited edition box form; it will include a digital code for Hearts of Stone along with two physical Gwent decks and a manual for the popular card game. Just to clarify, the missions in Hearts of Stone are designed for level 30+ characters but anyone can tackle them. You up for it?

Help, I'm lost in this cave with a magic woman not wearing a bra. I can't figure out where to go. I can walk out, but there's no more area down there to explore and nothing left to kill.

You have to jump in the middle! Don't waste time looking around for glyphs just jump in the big middle hole pit of wata to find the correct glyph! lol at least that's the spot that got me wondering where to go for a while until I wanted to suicide and found the correct way XD

Looking forward to it, but being back in school the question becomes will I ever have time for it?
