The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine expansion will release on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on May 31, CD PROJEKT RED has announced today. The studio also released a teaser trailer for Blood and Wine ahead of its release later this month.
The release date had been leaked earlier this week by Steam and had suggested that the DLC would be available on PC on May 30. The official release date is May 31, so it was very close indeed.
Blood and Wine will be the second and final expansion for The Witcher 3 and comes seven months after Hearts of Stone which released in November 2015. Hearts of Stone added around 10 hours of gameplay, however, Blood and Wine is set to be much bigger by offering between 20-30 hours of additional content to the game. Furthermore, the DLC is recommended for players who have a level 35 character. If you’re not quite at level 35 yet, you still have a few weeks to get up to speed!
“Blood and Wine makes The Witcher 3 complete – it’s Geralt’s final mission. 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,” said Konrad Tomaszkiewicz, Game Director, CD PROJEKT RED.
“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,” Tomaszkiewicz adds.
