One of the highlights of the successful The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt release has been the DLC updates that we’ve been getting weekly. While this week has been held up so that the latest patch can be concentrated on, still there are big things to come.
Speaking to Gamelab, Konrad Tomaszkiewicz, of CD Projekt Red had some interesting things to say about some upcoming story-heavy packs that are coming to the game. Quoted by Gamereactor, he had this to say:
“The expansion packs will be whole new storylines with all the elements you’ve got in the main story (like cutscenes, new characters, new items, new Gwent cards) and many, many more. They will be quite long. The first expansion will be around 10 hours and the second expansion will be around 20 hours… and I think it’s possible that they will be bigger, because it’s always like this (that when we plan some time or hours, it’s twice or something like this), but I’m not promising anything right now. And even now, if you sum up this 10 to 20 hours and you compare it to The Witcher 2, it’s almost the size of The Witcher 2. And it will be cool, it will be new stories, it will be very emotional stories and I think that people will be happy.”
The most interesting thing here, and which will catch gamers eye (including me) has to be that the two updates combined will see gameplay the size of The Witcher 2 added to the game. This makes me wonder just what we can expect, should this announcement excite us?
The two packs aren’t one of the weekly releases so not free. The first Hearts of Stone priced at $9.99 is coming later this year with Blood and Wine ($19.99) due in early 2016.
