New screenshots show off The Witcher 3 expansion

The Witcher 3’s first expansion, Hearts of Stone, has received a ton of new screenshots as released today by developer CD Projekt Red.

The images of the first paid content for the game, which is set to be released on October 13, show the various characters, lands and environments that players will interact with in the expansion. Many lines of dialogue and maps have been blurred out to avoid spoilers.

“Step again into the shoes of Geralt of Rivia, a professional monster slayer, this time hired to defeat a ruthless bandit captain, Olgierd von Everec, a man who possesses the power of immortality. This expansion to “The Witcher 3 : Wild Hunt” packs over 10 hours of new adventures, introducing new characters, powerful monsters, unique romance and a brand new storyline shaped by your choices.

During this first expansion for The Witcher 3, Geralt will spend time in areas named “No Man’s Land” and “Oxenfurt.” The expansion will introduce new characters, powerful monsters, unique romance, and a brand new storyline shaped by gamer choices, named “Runeword.”

“Each Runeword will impact a different aspect of in-game mechanics and will allow the players to experiment with various strategies and tactics,” the expansion’s description reads.

Hearts of Stone is the first of two expansions coming for The Witcher 3, with the second one, Blood and Wine, coming early next year. Hearts of Stone will be available for $19.99.
