    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.

    Uno de los mejores DLC creados, como pasa con el segundo este podría considerarse un juego aparte.
    Si te gusto The Witcher 3, compralo sin dudar.

The StoryThe Witcher 3 hearts of stone is a really awesome expansion it offers many new side quests, a new great story and new Boss fights. The Story is really great in my opinion better than the main game, the boss fights are 10 times better than in the original game and it is about 10h long.
    You should get this expansion, I mean you can't do something wrong it only costs 7or10$

    Hearts of Stone Expansion:
    This expansion adds several question marks, a new storyline, a few creatures and a runewright.

    The new story is fantastic, and draws you in regarding Gaunter O'Dimm. Regarding the new creatures however, i expected more effort. Enemies like the Arachnoid don't get a proper Witcher contract or an introduction, and it is left to chaotic encounters to introduce this new monster.

    The order of the flaming rose is also barely explained, which is a missed opportunity. I like the inclusion of more high powered monsters around question marks, and the runewright gives you more options to modify your gear. This expansion is fantastic, i give it a 9/10.

    Great expansion. If you loved the Witcher 3, you'll love this. It is, in most respects as good as the base game. My one complaint is thatGreat expansion. If you loved the Witcher 3, you'll love this. It is, in most respects as good as the base game. My one complaint is that after the main intro, it gets a bit cut scene heavy, and for those who don't enjoy watching 30 minutes of cut scenes stringed together by mini-games, won't enjoy this section. After that the pace picks up and it becomes regular Witcher 3, with a fascinating story. Would recommend for all that liked Witcher 3. Expand
