Eight months after its overwhelming impressive launch (received GOTY award) and sensational expansion Hearts of Stone, the end of the trilogy of Geralt of Rivia is considered – for many lovers of this genre it’s a new standard in the world of open-world RPGs.
Witcher 3: Blood & Wine will be the final adventure of Geralt
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.
In an interview with Eurogamer.it, CD Projekt RED tells us briefly about what we can expect in this second and final expansion, which aims to provide a much more elaborate and complex to the already experienced during the Wild Hunt history.
What we knew so far, it is that Witcher 3: Blood & Wine will feature more than 20 hours of gameplay and introduce new region Toussaint, transporting Geralt to a pristine land of war, whose carefree atmosphere and rituals hide a chivalrous satisfaction ancient and bloody secret.
The Witcher 3: Blood & Wine Features a More Complex Story – says CDPR
But leaving aside the little specifics, the Polish studio emphasizes that this expansion will present a completely separate story of the plot, which under their own words say that “we believe that, we have achieved something much better than the original plot.” It seems that Bethesda and Bioware will have to change their mentality if ever again pretend surprise. If that matter, the Dragon Age Inquisition was somewhat casual compared to its first delivery.
One of the things we intend to do with CDPR Witcher 3: Blood & Wine, is that Geralt is faced with charismatic enemy, while a more complex story unfolds players will appreciate even more than in the Wild Hunt.
With estimated date to mid-2016, Blood & Wine again promises to redefine the meaning of expansion, as recently done by Hearts of Stone.
Although the Polish studio will focus on Cyberpunk 2077, previously developers expressed their desire to develop other stories based on the books of Andrzej Sapkowski or Witcher universe. Let’s hope so.
