CD Projekt RED's critically acclaimed RPG The Witcher 3 just received its first DLC expansion, available right now for Xbox One and PC.
'Hearts of Stone' adds around 10 hours of gameplay to The Witcher 3, taking place in the areas currently available in the base game.
We're still working on our review, but early signs are looking positive with several major sites granting the first of the Witcher 3 expansions with 9s and 10s.
If you're unfamiliar with the series, The Witcher follows the exploits of Geralt of Rivia, a monster-slayer-for-hire. His prowess in combat often lands him at the behest of sorceresses and royalty, causing him to become entwined in everything from solving minor political intrigue to vanquishing world-threatening evil. The Witcher 3 is an action RPG set in an impossibly vast and detailed open world the likes of which has yet to get matched on the Xbox One.

Hearts of Stone is available now for PS4, Xbox One and PC for $9.99, or for free if you've purchased The Witcher 3's expansion pass. The expansion pass will add another DLC in early 2016 named 'Blood and Wine', set to take place in an all-new area across a 20 hour play time.

What about PS4?
Wish all these games could run on mobile
They will... with Xbox One game streaming to Windows 10 Mobile. :3
i thought the developer said all expansions were going to be free. guess not.
DLCs, yes. 16 of them. Expansions not.
Easy to see how people can be confused by that. I mean an expansion is really the same as DLC. I don't really blame though, it's not like it's free for them to make it, I just wish they named everything different.
Jez 'The Witcher' Corden is either very happy or very scared
