Even though the Witcher 3 hasn’t been released yet, CD Projekt Red has announced two expansion packs for it – Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine. The former will give players around 10 hours of gameplay, while the latter will add 20 more hours on top of the 200-hour run time of the base game and its 16 free DLCs.

The official press release states that Hearts of Stone will be available in October, while Blood and Wine is due for release in the first quarter of 2016. Here’s what Marcin Iwiñski, co-founder of CD Projekt Red, said about the expansions:

Hearts of Stone will take Geralt on an all-new, 10-hour-plus adventure into the wilds of No Man’s Land and the nooks and alleys of Oxenfurt, where he’ll try to complete a contract from the mysterious Man of Glass. Caught in a thick tangle of deceit, Geralt will need all his cunning and strength to solve the mystery and emerge unscathed.Blood and Wine, a 20-hour-plus tale that will introduce the all-new in-game region of Toussaint, will take Geralt to a land untainted by war, where an atmosphere of carefree indulgence and knightly ritual masks an ancient, bloody secret.…The upcoming expansions will offer gamers new adventures, gear and foes and will feature characters both new and dearly missed — all crafted with maximum attention to detail and quality by the joint forces of CD PROJEKT RED’s Warsaw and Cracow studios
