CD Projekt RED has announced two major expansion packs for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

The two new expansions will collectively add another 30 hours of additional playtime to the already huge game.

The two expansions are as follows:

Hearts of Stone (October 2015)

Hearts of Stone will take Geralt on an all-new, 10-hour-plus adventure 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.

Blood and Wine (Q1 2016)

Blood and Wine, a 20-hour-plus tale that will introduce the all-new in-game region of Toussaint, will take Geralt to a land untainted by war, where an atmosphere of carefree indulgence and knightly ritual masks an ancient, bloody secret.

CD Projekt RED is also making the two expansion packs available together in the above-shown Expansion Pass, as well as separately. Fans can expect new enemies, adventures, gear, and of course – returning and newcomer characters.

“With the development of Wild Hunt coming to an end, the team has embarked upon the creation of two new really big adventures set in The Witcher universe,” CD Projekt RED co-founder Marcin Iwinski said in a press release. “We remember the time when add-on disks truly expanded games by delivering meaningful content. As gamers, we’d like to bring that back. We’ve said in the past that if we ever decide to release paid content, it will be vast in size and represent real value for the money. Both our expansions offer more hours of gameplay than quite a few standalone games out there.”

Prices for the expansion packs were not confirmed. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on May 19th.
