The Witcher 3 will start to receive expansion packs, but just how large will they be? 10-20 hours each, according to CD Projekt Red's Konrad Tomaszkiewicz, who states that at the very least the new expansion packs will be the size of The Witcher 2 if combined. New characters, storylines, items, cutscenes, Gwent cards and more will be included in the purchasable content.

From the interview with Tomaszkiewicz:

"They will be quite long. The first expansion will be around 10 hours, and the second expansion will be around 20 hours. I think it's possible they will be bigger, because it's always like this—we plan some time of hours and it's twice or something like this—but I'm not promising anything right now. Even now, if you sum up these 10 and 20 hours and you compare it to The Witcher 2, it's almost the size of The Witcher 2. It will be cool. It will be new stories, and it will be emotional stories. I think that people will be happy."

If you have already invested countless hours in The Witcher 3, which news may come as a pleasant confirmation that there's much more to come. The developer certainly has the right idea when it comes to said content packs, which continue to be an issue for gamers. What would you like to see in The Witcher 3 expansions?
