'The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt' DLC news: 'Blood and Wine' release date confirmed


The first expansion of “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” was released late 2015 and had a good reception among fans of the game. Now, there are new details regarding the second downloadable content (DLC) pack titled “Blood and Wine,” and it may come out sooner than expected.

It has been confirmed in reports that the accidental upload of the promotional image for “Blood and Wine” on Steam revealed the date of its release. The photo has been removed immediately when Steam made a mistake, but it was not taken down quickly enough to avoid it from being screen captured by fans.

Based on the leaked photo, fans can expect “Blood and Wine” to be released on May 30.

There also new details regarding the expansion. The main theme and colour scheme of “The Witcher” is usually dark and gritty, and the usual locations are dark forests and swamps. The second DLC pack will feature a new place that players can explore. The new level is called Toussaint, and it features a brighter color scheme that diverts from the usual theme of the franchise.

Players can expect “Blood and Wine” to be more expansive as it offers a campaign that may last for about 20 hours or more. There is also a possibility that the fans of the game can own a vineyard for their character.

According to GameSpot, information about the trophies and achievements that will be introduced in the expansion was leaked. It showed that some of the new achievements will be called “Hasta la Vista,” “David and Golyat,” and “The Grapes of Wrath Stomped.”

The third installment of “The Witcher” franchise was released almost a year ago. The video game received a lot of awards and has been praised for its graphics, gameplay, and sound design.
