Here is the official description of each of the expansion.

Hearts of Stone will take Geralt on an all-new 10-hour adventure into the wilds of No Man’s Land and the nooks and alleys of Oxenfurt, where he’ll try to complete a contract from the mysterious Man of Glass. Caught in a thick tangle of deceit, Geralt will need all his cunning and strength to solve the mystery and emerge unscathed.

Blood and Wine, a 20-hour tale that will introduce the all-new in-game region of Toussaint, will take Geralt to a land untainted by war, where an atmosphere of carefree indulgence and knightly ritual masks an ancient, bloody secret.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Expansion  Pass will cost you $25 and contains both of these expansions.

    so that first shot, taken from the launch trailer, right?

      Yeah it is taken from the trailer. Does that mean in Touissant we get to fight bruxae???

    • Yes but keep in mind that this artwork for the second expansion is not final. Marcin Momot recently revealed that the artwork will be updated closer to launch of second expansion.

    I was hoping for an expansion to take us to Zerrikania since its been mentioned multiple times in all three games. Still, this is going to be excellent.

    Currently reading the books and planning on playing the first two games. I am so ready for October.

      I’m sort of doing the same thing. I’m on book 3 right now :-). Never played the 1st two, will skip those and then play Witcher 3 which I still haven’t started. I barely tried the 2nd and it felt too linear for me.

        Well, because I loved the story in 3, and I hear the story in 2 is even better, I mainly want to play the games for that reason. Witcher 3 is truly a fantastic game, I finished it and am now playing New Game + in Death March difficulty

        I’m also on book 3, right now, it’s really annoying that the American editor has decided to release the books so damn slowly. I’m not really too thrilled about having to read a fan translation of the last two, I thought the translation for Sword of Destiny was passable, but not exactly smooth. Which is a shame, because I really loved the stories in it, especially the one about Villentretenmerth, the Gold Dragon.

        There’s also another book, Season of Storms that came out 2 years ago, that isn’t even announced by the American editor yet, and has no fan translation.

    Can’t wait for October. I can’t really justify starting my third campaign.
