The world is in chaos. The air is thick with tension and the smoke of burnt villages. The fearsome Empire of Nilfgaard has struck again, ravaging the helpless Northern Kingdoms. The once mighty who tried to use Geralt for their own gain are now gone. In these uncertain times, no one can say what fortune holds in store, who will bring peace to the world and who will cause it only misery. But a force darker and deadlier emerges. The petty men and women commanding tin-plated armies fail to understand that their conflict is child's play compared to the Wild Hunt, the otherworldly threat which now looms. These ghastly spectral riders have for ages plagued humankind, bringing misery to the world. Yet this time the Wild Hunt seeks one person in particular: the one individual Destiny itself bestowed upon Geralt, the one soul Geralt considers kin.

As CD PROJEKT RED, we strongly believe this is not the way it should work and, with

You don’t have to pre-order, you don’t have to buy any special edition to get them -- if you own a copy of Wild Hunt, they’re yours. This is our way of saying thank you for buying our game.



On April 7th, 2015, CD Projekt announced two major expansions for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, entitled Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine. Hearts of Stone will be released on 13 October 2015, while Blood and Wine is slated for release in the first quarter of 2016. CD Projekt RED says that both expansion packs will include: New enemies, Characters, and gear. Players will also be reunited with some "Dearly missed" characters from the series. Both expansions will be available on all three major platforms. Players can purchase both expansions at once by getting the $25 expansion Pass, now on sale through several retailers.

Hearts of StoneEdit

Heart of Stone will be a major expansion that will total at over 10 hours of additional content. Geralt will adventure into the wilds of No Man's Land and the nooks and alleys of Oxenfurt, where he will 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 WineEdit

Blood and Wine is a major expansion that will total at over 20 hours of additional content. A 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 and bloody secret.
