The expansion offers over 10 hours of additional content with new characters, powerful monsters, unique romance, and a brand new storyline driven by a players in game choices.

Caught in a thick tangle of deceit, Geralt will need all his cunning and strength to solve the mystery and emerge unscathed.
Also available is the Expansion Pass which will grant players access to two new adventures set in the world of monster hunter Geralt of Rivia. Along with the above mentioned Hearts of Stone, the pass will also include Blood and Wine, an expansion that adds over 20 hours of content.
