After garnering such goodwill from interested gamers with regards to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and its free DLC plans, developer CD Projekt Red has just announced that the upcoming role-playing game will actually boast an expansion pass.

Offering two "massive" expansions, named Hearts and Stone and Blood and Wine, these new adventures will launch in October and early 2016, respectively.

Previously, the studio claimed that it doesn't believe in charging for smaller pieces of DLC, and has since confirmed that there will be 16 pieces of content to download free of charge after the game's launch.

As for the aforementioned expansions, there's no word on pricing just yet, but the Polish developer is keen to point out that they'll both contain a hefty amount of additional content.

Do you think that charging for larger add-ons is fair, especially if the smaller bits of DLC are free? Nickel and dime us in the comments section below.
