[Original Story] Last week, the official cover art for the retail edition of The Witcher 3 Blood and Wine expansion has surfaced online. Not much else has been said about the second expansion of the popular role playing game developed by CD Projekt Red, but more has come in on the matter today.
A few hours ago, The Witcher 3 Blood and Wine back cover has surfaced online, featuring a couple of new screenshots that haven't been seen before showing Geralt fight a new monster in what seems like an arena and more. The back cover also mentions a Gwent Card Game, but it's most likely referring to the two real card decks included in the retail edition. You can check out the Blood and Wine back cover right below.
On a related note, CDPR Community Manager Marcin Momot has also confirmed on The Witcher Official Forums that more Blood and Wine screenshots will be coming later today.
With the The Witcher 3 Blood and Wine cover art now out, fans all over the world are anticipating the expansion's release date announcement. The team has said nothing about the matter, but the Blood and Wine expansion might be released on May 27th. This release date has briefly appeared on Amazon last week, before getting removed.
Following the release of the The Witcher 3 Blood and Wine main artwork, concept artist and illustrator Darek Zabrocki has shared some close up shots of the artwork as well as a couple of sketches he has made by using the notes given to him by the team. The final sketch is the one upon which the official cover art is based.
The Witcher 3 is now available in all regions on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The Blood and Wine expansion will be released on a yet to be confirmed date in all regions. We will let you know more about the release date as soon as possible so stay tuned for all the latest news.
