The Witcher 3's First Paid DLC 'Almost Ready'

The Witcher 3's First Paid DLC 'Almost Ready'

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.

Still rummaging around Skillige with plenty more to do on the main quests, chances of being ready for more Witcher III goodness by October are pretty slim given that MGSV releases today and that'll be competing for so much of my limited gaming time over the coming weeks, gotta love life problems aye!

More Gwent is a welcome idea love kicking back late at night playing cards when I'm to bleary eyed to be exploring.

Onto NG+ on Death March diff now. Taking a break to play some other stiff for awhile but Ill get back into it and probably will buy the DLC.
As for Gwent I hope it gets a standalone version, and even a real card version.
