The game isn't even out yet, but that hasn't stopped an enthusiastic CD Projekt RED from projecting their post-release plans on the gaming public with news of two planned expansions.

The clear wording here is the use of "expansion" over DLC. And while DLC is technically correct for an expansion, in the gaming world it generally denotes small, often arbitrary additions to a game that should have been included in the first place.

"With the development of Wild Hunt coming to an end, the team has embarked upon the creation of two new really big adventures set in The Witcher universe,” says Marcin Iwiński, CD PROJEKT RED co-founder (via press release). “We remember the time when add-on disks truly expanded games by delivering meaningful content. As gamers, we’d like to bring that back. We’ve said in the past that if we ever decide to release paid content, it will be vast in size and represent real value for the money. Both our expansions offer more hours of gameplay than quite a few standalone games out there.”

The other key wording here is "value for money" which is clearly backed up with the notion that both expansions offer more hours of gameplay than some standalone releases. Here's what's on offer:
Hearts of Stone will take Geralt on an all-new, 10-hour-plus 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-plus 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.
As part of this, the team is looking to offer a Season Expansion Pass though they're careful to ensure you're not being bullied into the expanded purchase by adding "don’t buy it if you have any doubts. Wait for reviews or play The Witcher and see if you like it first. As always, it’s your call".

Pricing on the expansions and various purchase options for the game can be found here, and the first expansion, Hearts and Stone, is due in October while Blood and Wine will be made available in the early part of 2016.
