The Witcher 3’s Expansions Will Be ‘Almost the Size of The Witcher 2′
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's upcoming expansion packs will be almost as big as the previous game in the series.
In an interview with GameReactor, CD Projekt Red Game Director Konrad Tomaszkiewicz spoke about all the upcoming content coming in the future for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. CD Projekt Red has already released a ton of content for free that most developers and publishers would've charged money for, which shows the commendable quality and customer appreciation this company has (other developers/publishers please take note). The Witcher 3 has gotten all kinds of free costumes, weapons, armor and new quests. Now, CD Projekt Red is gearing up for Geralt of Rivia's upcoming expansions, which are going to be filled with content.
As you would expect for The Witcher 3's first premium expansion, you can expect a ton of content:
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.
We are certainly liking what we're hearing, Mr. Tomaszkiewicz. The Witcher 3: Hearts of Stone will be launching this fall, whereas the Blood and Wine expansion will launch sometime in early 2016.
