Developed by CD Projekt RED, the last game of The Witcher series – The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings came out in 2011. We thought Witcher 2 had the finest RPG of our time until we saw the trailer of The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine. Based on the novels by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski, the game revolves around the monster hunter named Geralt of Rivia aka Witcher, who lives in a fantasy world built on Polish history and Slavic mythology. We can’t wait for the third instalment of The Witcher to release on May 31 but until then we’ve come up with a post that’ll provide you complete information on everything related to the upcoming game.
The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine – What’s New?
The New World
Set in the fictional world of Toussaints, Geralt’s new world is more colourful and visually untouched by the ravages of war. The place looks upon beautiful mountain, beautiful flowers ad brooks. According to the developers the playing area is about the same size as No Man’s Land in Velen, but with many more points of interest. By the looks of it, Geralt is on vacation, catching up old friends but witches are not too far.
It’s Got Loads of Drama, Twists and Turns
Despite the colourful landscape, it’s not like the game turns into a jolly British period drama. The Witcher 3 will retain it grim fantasy and gory stuffs. Just when you think you’re getting the hang of the world and its people, something happens and you plunge into another great adventure.
Mutations and Signs
New upgrades called mutations have also been added. They are equipped to deliver powerful punches to special magical attacks and can also be applied to different weapons. In total the 12 mutations actually enhances the gaming experience by adding extra layer to the combat strategy.
The Witcher 3 :Blood and Wine Release Date
Now we have an official release date for The Witcher 3. Developers CD Projekt Red have confirmed that the game will be released on May 31. The game director Konrad Tomaszkiewicz informed, “Containing more than 90 new quests, and over thirty hours of brand new adventures, it’s something that I think gamers will remember for a long time.” He also said the Blood and Wine will include “a dynamic Point of Interest system, a new Gwent deck, new endgame mutation mechanics, and even a place Geralt can call home…. And it’s all happening in a new region as big as No Man’s Land in the base game.”
The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine is currently available on pre-order.
The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine – Price
As of now, the we don’t have an official price on the upcoming game but we are speculating that The Witcher 3 will cost somewhere between $57.23 to $70.
The Witcher 3 – Trailer
The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine trailer teases trouble in Toussaint. Judging by the trailer, the soon to be released, the game has got gorgeous scenery and the music is spot on. And by the looks of it, there is going to be a few flashbacks to featuring a hideous man-eater skulking in the shadows waiting to catch you off guard.
Check out the trailer below:
Obviously we can’t wait for the game to come out. But be forewarned, the The Witcher 3 is allegedly 30+ hours of quest, races, side missions, monster hunting and tournaments. Seems like both Geralt and we would have plenty to do once the game is released.
