The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Blood & Wine DLC available 31 May

Have you been waiting for the next set of DLC to launch for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt? We now finally have a launch date for the Blood & Wine DLC and it’ll be available in just over 11 weeks on 31 May for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. It feels like an eternity, but before you know it you’ll be back to explore the world in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

What makes this DLC in particular so important is that it’s the last time you’ll get to play as Geralt. They’ve put so much time and effort into this last set of DLC that the marketing lead, Michal Platkow-Gilewski , said that this DLC will be even better than the main game. That’s quite a statement to make. Here were his exact words:

Blood and Wine is the sum of all the experiences we gained when creating Wild Hunt, so it’s definitely more refined than Wild Hunt in many regards, but that doesn’t mean it’s better per se

I wouldn’t point fingers at what’s better separately, as each addition to Wild Hunt (including over 10 updates we’ve released so far) enriches the overall experience you get from The Witcher as a game in general. The base game with the expansions is simply better than without them.

Time to count the days to 31 May for DLC that’ll likely last as long as most complete games. Yes, that’s how DLC should be done.
