'The Witcher 3' Blood And Wine Expansion May Arrive In June
Fans hoping for more witcher's work will have their prayers answered soon, if a recent report from a Polish gaming website proves accurate.
According to GRYOnline, fans can expect The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's second expansion to be released on June 7.
CD Projekt Red has yet to officially confirm the June 7 release date. However, the date does match up closely with when the developer has previously said fans can expect the expansion. Upon announcing the piece of DLC, CD Projekt Red told fans to expect Blood and Wine in the first quarter of the year, later delaying the expansion to sometime within the first half of 2016. A June 7 release of the expansion would put it just at the tail-end of the halfway through the year mark.
Titled "Blood and Wine," developer CD Projekt Red says the second expansion to its award-winning RPG will be roughly 20 hours long and add an entirely new area for players to explore. When combined with the game's first "Hearts of Stone" expansion, the developer says The Witcher 3's DLC is roughly equal to the size of the entire game of The Witcher 2.
Not much is known about "Blood and Wine" story-wise. CD Projekt Red says it will take players to the region of Toussaint, "a land untainted by war, where an atmosphere of carefree indulgence and knightly ritual masks an ancient, bloody secret." Players can expect some familiar faces in the expansion, along with new monsters to face off against and new gear to acquire.
We loved the game and its first expansion, which you can read more about here. "Hearts of Stone" brought roughly 10 hours of new content to The Witcher 3, an already content-packed game.
In related news, CD Projekt Red's April Fool's gag for the year proved to be an amusing one for fans of The Witcher 3, in which the developer jokingly explains why Geralt's horse proved to be so glitchy in the finished game. You can check that out here.
