The second expansion for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Blood and Wine is scheduled for release in the first half of 2016 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

To get you ready for release next year, and to coincide with the announcement that The Witcher 3 has won over 300 awards so far, CD Projekt Red released the first two screenshots for Blood and Wine.

Game Director Konrad Tomaszkiewicz talked about the year that was, and looked ahead to the future:

2015 is almost behind us. It’s a great year for open world games and a fantastic time for The Witcher. A year of intense work for the team and a time filled with many personal victories for everyone involved in a project that received more than 300 awards so far (wow!). We overcame so many obstacles to get to this point, and we’ve always done it with gamers rooting for us.

It’s your year, too! Blood and Wine, the second expansion for The Witcher 3, is on the horizon. It’s a massive new land to explore, visually unlike anything you saw in Wild Hunt or Hearts of Stone, and it too is brimming with stories we want you to discover.

Blood and Wine is a 20-hour tale that introduces the new region of Toussaint, taking Geralt to a “land untainted by war, where an atmosphere of carefree indulgence and knightly ritual masks an ancient, bloody secret.”

The other expansion, Hearts of Stone, was released earlier this year.
