For those of you who enjoy CD Projekt Red's latest entry in The Witcher series, you will be joyed to hear good news regarding their upcoming Witcher 3 expansions. During an interview with Gamereactor, the game's director, Konrad Tomaszkiewicz stated that the two expansions would total out to be approximately the same size as The Witcher 2. To put this in perspective, the first expansion will be available in October, and is said to be around 10 hours worth of content. The second expansion, which is said to be releasing in the first quarter of 2016, claims to have 20 hours of content. Although this is what Tomaszkiewicz said regarding their size as of now, he claims they could even become larger as we get closer to the release. "They will be quite long. 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."
These are no mere DLC packs with a few vague missions thrown in like some other game developers have been getting slack for. Tomaszkiewicz stated: "Even now, if you sum up this 10 to 20 hours worth of gameplay, and you compare it to The Witcher 2, it's almost the exact same size of The Witcher 2. It will be cool, and it will be all new stories, and it will include very emotional stories that I personally think everyone will be happy with." This is great news, especially since you can get both DLC packs with the expansion pass for a mere $25. This is a great value for the content, and adds even more to a game that already has a plethora of content to begin with. We will see if Tomaszkiewicz and his team can elevate this even more before release, but for now, the future of The Witcher 3 seems bright.
