Witcher 3 Blood and Wine Expansion Release Date Revealed
[UPDATE] The Steam page for Blood and Wine shows that the expansion will cost $20 on its own, though you can get it for $18 if you pre-purchase. You can also buy the game's Expansion Pass for $25, which includes Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine. Hearts of Stone sells for $10 by itself, so the pass saves you $5 if you're sure you want both.
The origin story is below.
As rumored, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's Blood and Wine expansion will launch on May 31, developer CD Projekt Red announced today. On Sunday, the release date popped up on Steam but was quickly removed.
Blood and Wine includes over 90 quests with more than 30 hours of gameplay. It also introduces a dynamic system, where interacting with an area's main POI affects adjacent points. For example, killing enemies in their main hideout lowers their numbers in surrounding camps. Additionally, there will be 14,000 new lines of dialogue, which is 8,000 more than the previous expansion, Hearts of Stone.
