The first paid DLC for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is on track for its October release and is "shaping up really nicely", according to developers CD Projekt Red.
During a panel broadcasted at PAX Prime in Seattle, CD Projekt Red's Travis Currit said that the add-on, called Hearts of Stone, is "almost ready, and shaping up really nicely.” It's described by the developers as a "10-hour-plus adventure" that sends Geralt " into the wilds of No Man’s Land and the nooks and alleys of Oxenfurt, where he’ll try to complete a contract from the mysterious Man of Glass. Caught in a thick tangle of deceit, Geralt will need all his cunning and strength to solve the mystery and emerge unscathed."
Currit also talked briefly about Gwent, the card game featured in The Witcher 3. When asked if it would ever get a standalone release, Currit said he'd pass the request on to the development team, but teased that there is "good news" coming for Gwent fans.
The Witcher 3 came out in May this year to critical acclaim, and its launch was followed by 16 free pieces of DLC, all of which are now available. Hearts of Stone is the first of two planned paid add-ons, the second being Blood and Wine, due out next year.
