Once installed, the expansion packs are deeply integrated into the game. One consequence is that the new feats, skills, spells, and classes are available to players in (almost) any module they play, including the [[original campaign]] (but excluding those that specifically alter the normal selection). Another consequence is that, unlike some other games, there is no such thing as [[patch]]ing just the original game or just an expansion pack — the original game and all installed expansion packs are always at the same version number. This integration also affects the [[Toolset]]; once an expansion pack is installed, anything saved by the Toolset will be flagged as requiring that expansion pack.

The campaigns of the expansion packs (rated at 20 hours each; the HotU campaign lacks multiplayer support) tell a linked story that is intended to be started (in SoU) with a new [[character level|level]] 1 [[player character]]. (Part of the reason for starting over at level 1 is that SoU introduced some feats that can only be taken at level 1.) Various conversations in the campaigns indicate that the SoU campaign occurs at the same time as the original, while the HotU campaign occurs later. In particular, the HotU campaign features some [[non-player character]]s from both the original and SoU campaigns who will freely refer to events within their campaigns. These characters will furthermore assume the player's character had completed the SoU campaign and had not participated in the original (regardless of what a player might have actually done). As some of the events referred to would be considered spoilers, this leads to the interesting assumption that the player, but not the player's character, has completed the original campaign.
