We've known the names of the expansions
for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
before the game was even released. The Witcher 3
has been out for a few months now, so CD Projekt Red has released a few details about the first expansion, "Hearts Of Stone".
As well as new characters and a new romance, "Hearts Of Stone" will also contain a brand-new Runewords system, with each Runeword set to affect a different aspect of the game's mechanics, allowing for all manner of strategies and tactics.
In addition, a short teaser trailer has been released alongside the announcement.
Way back in May, CD Projekt Red gave a release window of October, and it turns out that they were dead right. "Hearts of Stone" will be available on Xbox One on October 13th. A special limited boxed edition of the expansion that contains two decks of Gwent cards - Monsters and Scoia’tael - will be available at select retailers worldwide.
