Next week, Geralt of Rivia's story will finally come to an end with the release of Blood and Wine, the last DLC for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
That DLC will give Geralt one final quest: to rid the land of Toussaint from an evil monster that lurks the night. However, the seemingly idyllic world of Toussaint untouched by war has dark secrets that could explain why this beast exists. Geralt must uncover these mysteries and defeat the evil threatening to overtake the land.
Blood and Wine adds an entirely new map to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, one that is as big as all the Skellige Islands combined. It also adds over 30 new hours of gameplay to Geralt's adventure, giving fans of the franchise one last hurrah for which to get excited.
A final DLC trailer highlights some of what players can expect when they step into the shoes of Geralt one last time and visit the world of Toussaint in Blood and Wine.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt serves as the final game in the franchise, with Blood and Wine being the last DLC that developer CD Projekt Red will release for the title. Although the company plans on providing support for the game, as well as continuing to add patches to fix any issues, it is already moving forward on development for its next big title, Cyberpunk 2077.
The Witcher 3 fans will also notice that the graphics of Blood and Wine look better than the base game. That's because CD Projekt Red decided to give the DLC a cosmetic upgrade from the initial game.
"Generally it is a graphics upgrade from the base game," senior environment artist Len de Gracia said to Eurogamer. "We have employed methods that we did not implement in the base game. You can literally bring your camera up to a wall now and the textures would be crisp — at least in most cases ... We just wanted to show that we can actually push it to the limit this time."
Blood and Wine arrives on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on May 31.
