The Witcher 3: Hearts of Stone Expansion Launch Trailer and Previews

Although it doesn't launch until next week, CD Projekt have published the launch trailer for The Witcher 3 Hearts of Stone expansion pack on their YouTube channel. It has a bit of a gothic horror vibe. Check it out:


The storyline of the expansion involves Geralt becoming involved in some sort of supernatural feud between a bandit captain with a severe mortality deficiency and a travelling merchant from the main game who also turns out to be more than what he appears. You can read more about that in one of the many previews of the expansion that were published last week:

The consensus seems to be that it's a "more of the same" expansion, but with a focus on character development reminiscent of the main game's famous Bloody Baron quest. Apparently, there are some Witcher 1 plot tie-ins in there as well. For maximum spoilage, I recommend the GamePressure preview, written by a rather enthusiastic Pole.
