The Blood and Wine DLC for the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has been teased by one of the biggest Polish gaming sites.
Notable Polish gaming site, GRYOnline, posted a message on their Facebook page yesterday, reassuring fans that “something is happening”. This ‘tease’ follows after we recently reported that GRYOnline might have revealed the release date for the upcoming Witcher 3 expansion, Blood and Wine. As said before though, the listed date (June 7th), might well be a placeholder date for the expansion.
The first anniversary of the Witcher 3 is closing in, and some are expecting an announcement regarding Blood and Wine close to that date, May 19th. Whether GRYOnline has additional details on Blood and Wine remains uncertain, but we surely hope that "something" is indeed "happening".
The Blood and Wine DLC will feature a "massive new land"
The Blood and Wine DLC will tell a 20-hour tale that will introduce the all-new in-game region of Toussaint. Geralt will be taken to a land untainted by war, where an atmosphere of carefree indulgence and knightly ritual masks an ancient, bloody secret.
Since the release of The Witcher 3 last year, the RPG from CDPR has collected an enormous amount of rewards, including several awards for ‘Best Game of the Year 2015’. Back in 2015, CD Projekt Red was also awarded a Golden Joystick for Ultimate Game of the Year, and The Game Award for Game of the Year.
“2015 is almost behind us. It’s a great year for open world games and a fantastic time for The Witcher. A year of intense work for the team and a time filled with many personal victories for everyone involved in a project that received more than 300 awards so far (wow!). We overcame so many obstacles to get to this point, and we’ve always done it with gamers rooting for us. It’s your year, too!,” said game director Konrad Tomaszkiewicz last year. “Blood and Wine, the second expansion for The Witcher 3, is on the horizon. It’s a massive new land to explore, visually unlike anything you saw in Wild Hunt or Hearts of Stone, and it too is brimming with stories we want you to discover,” added Tomaszkiewicz.
