We know that Blood and Wine, the second expansion for The Witcher 3, will be out in the first half of 2016. We also know that it’ll feature 20 hours of gameplay, introduce a brand new region – Toussaint – and that the ‘atmosphere of carefree indulgence and knightly ritual masks an ancient, bloody secret’.
Now, we also know what it looks like.
After a couple of hundred hours spent wandering around a blood-soaked Velen, a war-torn Skellige, and the insanity that was the end game of the Witcher 3, seeing Toussaint looking so idyllic feels wrong.
But with mention of ancient bloody secrets and the like, if war hasn’t come to Toussaint when Geralt gets there, it sounds like he’s bringing some with him. And more story-based content for the Witcher is always – always – a good thing.
Here’s the second of the two screens and, for what it’s worth, it was named ‘Palace of Beauclair’. Anyone stumbled on anything interesting in the vast assortment of Witcher lore, that might offer some clues about the name and the story? Drop a line in the comments if you have.
And if you haven’t played The Witcher 3 or it’s previous expansion – Hearts of Stone – go here immediately and rectify that.
