The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine Expansion Out May 31
Ben Sheene / May 11th, 2016 1 Comment
CD Projekt Red will release The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine on May 31 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
Blood and Wine is the final expansion for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, which released last year to near universal acclaim. The game’s first DLC, Hearts of Stone was released last October.
This second expansion is set in Touissant, a new area in the game that tasks Geralt with solving a series of murders while continuing his normal duties of slaying monsters. Players can expect the new adventure to last from 20 to 30 hours (as opposed to Hearts of Stone’s 10-plus hours). New characters and old ones will populate this colorful looking area that is sure to contain dark and gruesome elements as well. The expansion is recommended to players who are at least level 35, which should satisfy those who have completed or nearly finished the game.
CD Projekt Red says that Blood and Wine will also feature improved graphics from the base game. Since The Witcher 3’s release last year, the developer has supported it with several pieces of free downloadable content, quality of life improvements, and numerous fixes to ensure players have stayed satisfied with the game. Blood and Wine marks the end of Geralt’s journey as CD Projekt Red likely shifts most of its focus towards Cyberpunk 2077.
The amount of support of for The Witcher 3 since release is a rare thing in most single player experiences. The game stands as one of the best open world RPGs available to players and it’s bittersweet that things are coming to a close. But considering the game’s massive scope, a second playthrough could be just as in depth with all the expansions finally out.
