The expansion will be called “Blood and Wine”. Its name has been officially announced a long time ago. The Season Pass owners will get it for free and the stand alone price will be around $20.
The image shows a slightly drunk Geralt, sitting on a throne, holding his favorite Witcher Sword in his right hand and a chalice of what looks to be wine in the left one.
Gamespot writes that the content will be sold in stores as download code. It grants access to the DLC and two Gwent decks (a total of 154 cards). It’s also worth noting that the base game is required to play “Blood and Wine”, and is not included. Not many official details have been revealed yet about the DLC’s content. There are a few leaks, but the main plot of the expansion is a total mystery for all of us.
“Blood and Wine” was originally expected in the beginning of 2016, but CD Projekt Red decided to delay it for more polishing and new additions to both gameplay and mechanics. According to some very popular leaks, the release date should be 7th June and since “First Half of 2016” was officially reported as a target by the Developers, I tend to believe this to be true.
CD Projekt Red previously said The Witcher 3’s two expansions, combined, amount to “almost the size of The Witcher 2.” Blood and Wine is expected to offer around 20 hours of gameplay, which is double what October’s Hearts of Stone had for players.
Blood and Wine’s is set in the colourful new region called Toussaint. The expansion will “take Geralt to a land untainted by war, where an atmosphere of carefree indulgence and knightly ritual masks an ancient, bloody secret.” It will also include new gear and enemies, as well as characters who are “both new and dearly missed.”
