The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt “Blood and Wine” Expansion Launches May 31

CD Projekt RED has announced the release date for the latest expansion for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

The “Blood and Wine” expansion is set to launch on May 31st, internationally. The expansion by itself costs $19.99, or it can be purchased with the previous expansion (via the Expansion Pass), “Hearts of Stone,” for $24.99.

Blood and Wine makes The Witcher 3 complete — it’s Geralt’s final mission,” game director Konrad Tomaszkiewicz said in a new press release. “Containing more than 90 new quests, and over thirty hours of brand new adventures, it’s something that I think gamers will remember for a long time. There’s also a massive amount of features we’re giving gamers with this expansion like a dynamic Point of Interest system, a new Gwent deck, new endgame mutation mechanics, and even a place Geralt can call home…. And it’s all happening in a new region as big as No Man’s Land in the base game.”

    Really hope they keep some of the folklore aspects from Hearts of Stone since those components made the story better than the base game’s plot itself.

    CD Projekt RED leading by example as always.

    Optimized? Check
    Long-term support? Check
    Full-length DLC? Check
    Real Man Content? Totes Check

    Would be wonderful if EA can be half as good of them.

    Yup. It would be really awesome if every other game company had the same agenda as them.

    Games for the gamers, not for the corporate mind.
