This was a good week for gamers who are fans of The Witcher franchise, in an effort to keep the game fresh, the developers are releasing free Downloadable Content (DLC) that includes costumes, armor and even new weapons. It is worth noticing that according to howlongtobeat.com, the open world game takes an average of 88 hours and 11 minutes to complete.
The expansion packs can be purchased via the expansion pass that will grant you access to both parts: Hearts of Stone & Blood and Wine, for only $24.99 (100 PLN). In his interview with gaming magazine Gamereactor Tomaszkiewicz said, “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.”
The amount of game content compared to the price is of concern amongst gamers, just like any consumer, gamers want to get their money’s worth. They sure won’t have to worry about not spending enough time in front of their screens with these DLC packs.
The first expansion pack Hearts of Stone is set to be released autumn of this year, while Blood and Wine will be available for download early 2016.
