The Witcher 3: The Sands of Ofir - fan concept for a new expansion

The Sands of Ofir is the name of The Witcher 3 DLC that will probably never see the light of day, but is very interesting nevertheless. Designed by a fan from Russia, the project has some concept art and original story.

Regrettably, CD Project RED is not planning any more expansions for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Who knows, though, perhaps they’ll change their mind when they see this concept for a DLC designed by a fan, a computer graphics school graduate from Russia named Alexandra Tokaryuk. The Sands of Ofir, as the project is called, tells a story which starts after the events featured in the base game and its two original expansions.

In this story, Geralt is again captured by the emissaries of Ofir and this time taken to that distant land to face the sultan of Ofir, determined to bring justice to the killer of his son and successor to the throne (the plot roots back to a quest featured in Hearts of Stone). Geralt has little choice but to find the person who masterminded the death of the prince.

Apart from the story overview, the author of the project designed several pieces of concept art, featuring new characters: Ofir’s sultan Selim the Magnificent and his ambitious daughter princess Nurshah. She also designed a brand new, Oriental set of armor and weapons plus some new types of bombs. Learn more about The Sands of Ofir on this website.
