The Witcher 3 Blood and Wine Release Date – June 2016
Are you waiting desperately for Blood and Wine?
CD Projekt RED might release The Witcher 3 Blood and Wine in June 2016.
Hearts of Stone was very well received by critics and gamers alike.
Hearts of Stone showed another great adventure of Geralt of Rivia, where we were at the precipice of our decisions. Making the right choices was always difficult in The Witcher 3, and you would never know what change would it make later in the story.
Personally, apart from the main storyline, my personal favorite quest was The Baron. The story unfolded itself quite dramatically. I was mesmerized by the scale of it.
I was glad to know that you could actually save the baby from Botchling’s curse. At first, I couldn’t calm the Botchling in time and the harmless baby turned into Botchling and it was much harder to kill it. I spent quite a while increasing my level and becoming few levels ahead of that Botchling.
But those quick regenerative powers of it, made everything worthless. It was then, I found myself, meditating for real, and it just kicked me that The Baron had already told us about it and we had already discussed a possible solution.
It was to calm the baby down with our Axii sign. Things went quite smoothly after that. Few wraiths attacked us on the way, but it was nothing that my level and sword couldn’t handle. After a short while, the story unfolded itself in a way that was completely unexpected to me.
Chasing the ghost of that baby and learning the secret of Baron’s wife and daughter was exhilarating. However, it was the time when I had to make a choice to either save the kids or the wife of Baron.
I saved the kids by freeing up the spirit and I was shocked to learn that it had killed nearly everyone in the village.
Anyways, my point is that I began to have dreams about that quest, because Baron’s wife died due to fixed death-curse, her daughter left with Eternal Fire and he hung himself because he couldn’t take the loneliness anymore.
Hearts of Store was pretty amazing as well because I had fun with everything. The fight at the beach, ghost, wedding and final fight with Olgierd.
I have to say that killing those 6 personas of Olgierd gave me much more satisfaction that killing The Wild Hunt in main game.
The Witcher 3 Blood and Wine is already carrying a huge burden on its shoulders. Will it satisfy its numerous fans? Will it deliver a compelling storyline that could make us wonder for several days? Will the gameplay be as great as Hearts of Stone?
The setting of Blood and Wine is in Touissant. It’s a beautiful and gorgeous place in Nilfgaard. CD Projekt RED released its photos few months ago and they were breathtaking.
Touissant isn’t dark and gloomy. It full of colors and celebrations. The place is religious and one can already guess, that something dark looms in those areas.
Gameplay of The Witcher 3 Blood and Wine
- It is being said that Blood and Wine will feature new gameplay elements.
- It will have more weapons and powers to customize.
- Powers related to runewright words will make more sense in this dlc.
- New moves and stealth action gameplay is being perceived and it would be a nice change of pace.
- The textures will be much more improved than previous installments.
You must have heard that new dlc will have an option to be played by Ciri as well as Geralt. This information is not yet confirmed.
The storyline is not yet clear. The ending of The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt had Ciri turned into a Witcher and Geralt left this world of monster hunting with Yennefer to live a peaceful and happy life.
Whether Blood and Wine will extend upon the last chapter or skip over it, is the main question!
It is also being rumored that none of them will be featured in this dlc and we’ll be playing as a very different character, a new Witcher!
The Witcher 3 Blood and Wine Release Date
CD Projekt RED is yet to confirm a release date. This dlc has already been pushed back several times and there comes a point where you don’t care anymore. But that won’t be the case with Blood and Wine.
Several leaks have pointed towards a September 2016 release, but a new Polish site has mentioned that a June 2016 release date is much likely.
I’ll update this post as soon as possible. Till then, have a fun time.
