    Ultimately, Hearts of Stone sets the standard for what we should expect from premium content, and not just because of its price tag. This is DLC that puts many retail releases to shame.

    Hearts of Stone is a stirring good time and a great expansion the whole way ‘round. It doesn’t just give us a couple new missions spread out over the same areas, bringing in the same characters, and simply offering a few new pieces of equipment. This goes above and beyond, delivering an entirely new customization mechanic, excellent story missions, a boatload of surprising charm, fantastic variety in terms of objectives, activities and locations, and a new romance that’s well worth pursuing.

    Hearts of Stone has an outstanding story with wonderful characters that bring alive again the books of Sapowski.

    Gaming expansions are somewhat unavoidable these days, but rarely do they feel as worthwhile as The Witcher 3's Hearts Of Stone does. Its superb story is complimented by excellent characters, and there's more than enough new content to make it an essential addition to Geralt's adventures.

    A great addition to what is already one of the stand out titles of this generation, and will be no doubt lauded as a modern classic for years to come.

    If you’re looking for an example of how to create meaningful downloadable content that doesn’t feel exploitative, you’d be hard pressed to find a better example than Hearts of Stone.

    A ten-hour long and very well written new questline for Geralt's adventures.

    price matters, depth matters, and now projeckt cd red matters. this is a game company that represents progress in the industry as well asprice matters, depth matters, and now projeckt cd red matters. this is a game company that represents progress in the industry as well as rockstar north. the expansion offers now real new area just populated empty areas that were in the game already. buy it buy it buy it. thats all i can say if you enjoyed the core witcher game with is a 100+ multi orgasm excursion. but if you're more casual or don't have the time to play it because real life constantly intrudes you may not miss out on anything as it takes some time ramps up the difficulty.

    I say this with all honesty and sincerity, The Witcher 3's "Hearts of Stone" is the greatest DLC expansion that I have ever played. I loveI say this with all honesty and sincerity, The Witcher 3's "Hearts of Stone" is the greatest DLC expansion that I have ever played. I love almost everything about it. Everything from Its captivating story to its chilling and yet, breathtaking soundtrack. I was so emotionally involved within the storyline, that I often wondered if I was playing a standalone sequel to the original game or a small $10 downloadable mission pack. Honestly, I still can't tell the difference. Expand
