Physical Release of The Witcher 3's Hearts of Stone Expansion Delayed

The digital version will still release on schedule.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's first major expansion, Hearts of Stone, releases tomorrow in its digital form. However, the physical version of the expansion, a boxed edition that was supposed to be sold in America in GameStop, has been delayed "for several days" after launch, CD Projekt Red's Community Lead and Website Coordinator Marcin Momot announced.

"Dear North American gamers, as you might have heard, we prepared a special boxed edition of Hearts of Stone that was supposed to be sold in GameStop stores all over America," Momot wrote. "However, it has come to our attention that, due to logistical problems, customers will be unable to obtain the physical edition of the game for several days after launch. We are working with GameStop to fix this situation as soon as possible and deeply apologize for the inconvenience."

The special edition box set includes the game expansion and real Gwent cards - although anyone who doesn't want to wait for the box set has the option of ordering the game in its digital form and obtaining the cards separately.

Last week, CD Projekt Red rolled out a massive patch for The Witcher 3, which includes over 600 fixes, including the highly anticipated tweaks to romance dialogue.


real gwent cards would be cool to have.

expansion is already downloading for me. still not finished the main game. but more is always good.

Shame that they are not standard TCG size, so can't put them in a sleeve to protect them. Gotta make a custom Gwent battlefield playmat though.

Found out I accidentally deleted my finished Witcher 3 save today. Now I'm going to have to play through it again to feel like i doing the dlc and game as a whole properly. Oh wells, I'll be taking a different romance option this time around at least (accidentally romanced 2 lasses instead of 1 last time)
