Partially translated by Reddit user Pawel95, members of CD Projekt Red were interview by German website GameStar recently, where they discussed The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and the upcoming Blood and Wine expansion.
According to the translation, the new realm of Toussaint is about as big as all of the islands of Skellige combined, there’s no release date for Blood and Wine yet but it should be out before E3 2016 in mid-June, the graphics in Blood and Wine have been improved and CD Projekt Red was thinking about replacing the grass in the base game with the new grass, the Expansion Pass isn’t expected to go on sale immediately after Blood and Wine releases, and they believe the $25 price point of the Expansion Pass is fair based on how much content you’re getting.
For The Witcher in general, CD Projekt Red said they don’t plan to remaster The Witcher or The Witcher 2, they don’t plan on releasing all three games in a retail package, and there’s a chance they’ll look at a Game of the Year Edition for The Witcher 3 that includes all patches and DLC.
If you haven’t seen it yet, here’s the description for Blood and Wine:
Blood and Wine, a 20-hour tale that will introduce the all-new in-game region of Toussaint, will take Geralt to a land untainted by war, where an atmosphere of carefree indulgence and knightly ritual masks an ancient, bloody secret.
It also includes “new content, gear and foes, and will feature characters both new and dearly missed – all crafted with maximum attention to detail and quality.”
Expect more details on Blood and Wine next month.
