Listen to the Theme of The Witcher 3: Hearts of Stone
Let the music take you away.

The Witcher 3 composer Marcin Przybylowicz has released the main theme for the upcoming Hearts of Stone expansion for the game. The track is just under three minutes and it is awesome. While the main game's title screen music was a boisterous and celebratory piece, Marcin has composed a much more somber track for Hearts of Stone. With its haunting beginning punctuated with piercing strings, the crescendo into the booming middle section, and the apprehensive resolve at the end of the track, there is a heavy unease to this piece.

Listen to the theme yourself by clicking on the video above or download the song from Soundcloud. What does the theme tell you about Geralt's upcoming journey?

The Hearts of Stone expansion for The Witcher 3 comes out on October 13th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
