Cyberpunk “Bigger Than Anything CD Projekt Has Done”

Details about Cyberpunk 2077 [official site], CD Projekt RED’s long-in-the-making sci-fi RPG that will, so far as we know, be their follow-up to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt [official site], are rarer than miracle cures for wartime Russian mycotoxins. Even rarer is the slightest implication of a release date. However, CDP are happy to reveal that this is no mere experimental side project – “We’re really stepping into the unknown in terms of complexity and size.”

The Witcher 3: Hearts of Stone Introduces A Tonal Shift

“The quest you’ve chosen would take too long to solve in the time span you have,” remarks a slightly concerned PR representative. “Maybe try the other one when you get the opportunity?”

I take this as a good sign. The Witcher 3: Hearts of Stone [official site] is the first ‘proper’ piece of DLC for CD Projekt RED’s already vast RPG, and comes after the release of umpteen freely available new clothes, minisodes and weapons. While Hearts of Stone isn’t concerned with adding new areas or mechanics, it’s a thrill to learn that it’s of a grander scale than I can reasonably see in the few hours I’ve been given to play it. In fact, the developers from Poland predict it’ll offer around ten-hours of new quests to play come release on October 13th.

HEY YOU! HI! HELLO AGAIN! OH MY GOSH I'VE MISSED YOU.

The first expansion for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt [official site], named Hearts of Stone, will arrive on October 13th, developers CD Projekt RED have announced. I’ll tell you more about that soon but first, the important part: it will get a physical release which comes with two Gwent decks. You could play Gwent with your pals. Oh aye, they won’t be your Gwent decks, but Gwent!

So anyway, the expansion itself! Said to take ten hours, it’ll bring a new story with new characters and monsters, a new Runewords system, and oh my gosh is that Shani again? Hi Shani! Here, come peep at the first teaser trailer:

Lovey-Dovey: The Witcher 3 Patch To Expand Romances

Love. Ewww! Gross. Don’t think I haven’t seen you around the place, holding hands, smooching, gazing longingly, and sliding hands up- the point is, once you awful people get loved up, you want to do more of it. More chats about plans and futures and furniture and – worst of all – wonky little clones of yourselves to show the whole dang troubled world how much you love each other. Love. The worst.

I like that a lot of lovey stuff in The Witcher 3 [official site] is terse, unspoken, or broadly doomed. I can relate to that. But no, because you rats demand more love, CD Projekt RED plan to expand their RPG’s romances a little in an upcoming patch.

Witchier: The Witcher 3’s New Game Plus Mode Now Out

More murder.

The Witcher games are set in an ending era, the world of magic and wonder dying out as humans trash everything. Killing its most exotic monsters – who usually only cause trouble when humans move into their habitat – can be tragic. And what’s the use of Geralt and his witcher pals once the last monster is slain? Well, he can reset the world and start all over again keeping his shiny trinkets.

The promised New Game+ mode for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt [official site] has arrived in its sixteenth and final free bit of ‘DLC’.

The Witcher 3 Mod Tools Released

Think of the buttons, dials and knobs you'll be able to fiddle with on this! Strewth.

No massively intricate and complicated fantasy RPG is complete without spending four hours selecting the mods you want to layer on top of it first. CD Projekt Red know this and have just released The Witcher 3 [official site] mod tools in partnership with Nexus Mods. This means not only can you grab the tools from Nexus, but their mod manager – which has been a mainstay of Bethesda modding for years – now supports The Witcher 3 as well.
