New The Witcher 3 Hearts of Stone Screenshots and Video

CD Projekt Red released new screenshots and a new video which shows off cinematics and gameplay from their upcoming Witcher 3 expansion Hearts of Stone, set to release for all platforms on October 13th, 2015.

From their press release:

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. The expansion lets you choose your own way through an adventure that includes recruiting a crew of break-in artists, spending a night partying with a ghost and outsmarting the most bizarre creatures Geralt has ever faced.

Launching October 13th, 2015, Hearts of Stone packs over 10 hours of new adventures and introduces new characters, powerful monsters, unique romance, and a brand new storyline shaped by gamer choices. The expansion also introduces a brand new system of Runewords that significantly affects gameplay. Each Runeword will impact a different aspect of in-game mechanics and will allow the players to experiment with various strategies and tactics.

As we reported before, following a slew of free DLC, this is the first paid expansion to the hit sequel that sold 6 million copies in its first 6 weeks, and here are the highlights on what we can expect:

  • Defeat your foes using a variety of new weapons and enchanted artifacts.
  • Level up even further by fulfilling new monster contracts and battling unique enemies.
  • Enjoy some leisure time playing with new gwent cards, or engage in a new romantic relationship.
  • Fulfill a contract for the soul-stealing Merchant of Mirrors, a mysterious traveller who helped you find Yennefer.
  • Fulfill three impossible tasks to defeat Olgierd, a ruthless bandit captain under an immortality spell.
  • Choose your own way through an adventure that includes recruiting a crew of break-in artists, spending a night partying with a ghost and outsmarting the most bizarre creatures Geralt has ever faced.

    I don’t usually do DLC, but the inclusion of such a crucial character from the first game (Shani) in the expansion could actually sway me… Will have to see what I’ve got to play as to whether I dig into my pockets!

    I wish I could get the Gwent decks on their own :twistedevil: :twistedevil: :twistedevil:

    You can. Fans have made print-quality images of them and oragnized them so you can order a deck.

    We will be looking for someone to do a Hearts of Stone Expansion review. Please do let know if you have any interest. If we get several, then we can do a community review. Be heard!

    I may be interested in writing a review for Hearts of Stone. It is awesome and a good example of DLC breathing new life into a game. That said, I’m too busy just enjoying it to want to think about it too much. That in itself should say something about a review. Honestly, I’m not even that much of a Witcher fan or even DLC for that matter, but this expansion is quite good.

    Sweet! Do you know how to get started with a post? Tips here

    Not really, but I’ll look into it next week. I have a break coming up in a few days and will have my nose to the grindstone until then.
