'The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt' DLC updates: 'Blood and Wine' will launch before June 14


The new DLC for “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” will be coming before the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) event in June.

In an interview with Gamestar, as translated by Reddit user Pawel95, developer CD Projekt RED talked about some of the upcoming add-in.

Referred to as “Blood and Wine,” the upcoming expansion will feature Geralt in a new place called Toussaint in a 20-hour mission. The developer revealed that the upcoming region will be a huge one, particularly as big as the Skellige Island, the main location of the title. The Skellige Island spans six islands from the costs of Cidaris and Verden.

“Blood and Wine” may be launched anytime soon now, as it was mentioned in the same interview that the developer will launch it before E3. Although no specific date has been pinned down, it is highly possible that the upcoming DLC may come in May or the first week of June.

There was also a leak earlier saying that the new expansion may come on June 7 based on a screenshot from the Polish gaming website GYROnline. This is still possible since the E3 event will be held the week after.

Meanwhile, CD Projekt Red also revealed some of their plans regarding the franchise. For instance, they have no plans in remastering the first and second iteration of the game at the moment. There are also no plans yet to release a retail copy that already includes all three titles. On the other hand, there are discussions to introduce an edition that will include all the expansions and patches for “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt”

The game was released in May 2015 with generally good reception from fans and critics alike, as its average rating from different gaming publications is around nine out of 10. “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” is available for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 consoles.
