Buoyed by a deserved clean sweep at The Game Awards ceremony last week, developer CD Projekt Red has unveiled our first look at The Witcher III: Wild Hunt‘s upcoming – and final – DLC pack, Blood and Wine.
Included in the RPG’s $24.99 expansion pass, next year’s add-on has been billed as a considerable step up from Hearts of Stone, encompassing around 20 hours of content for one Geralt of Rivia. Today’s reveal of the first screenshots, spotlighting the fantastical city of Toussaint, indicate that a trailer isn’t too far away, though the developer will likely hold fire until the new year as it continues to optimize the experience following the release of Hearts of Stone.
Per CD Projekt Red:
Blood and Wine is a 20-hour tale that will introduce the all-new in-game region of Toussaint, and will take Geralt to a land untainted by war, where an atmosphere of carefree indulgence and knightly ritual masks an ancient, bloody secret. Currently, Blood and Wine is available for purchase as part of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Expansion Pass
When it arrived back in October, Hearts of Stone was met with near unanimous approval from the four corners of the industry, and CD Projekt Red will be keen to send off Wild Hunt on a high note in mind-2016.
Initially pegged for Q1 2016, Blood and Wine will close out The Witcher III: Wild Hunt‘s DLC plans when it launches across PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in the first half of 2016.
