Welcome To Toussaint, Land of Wealth and Wine

The conclusion to monster slayer Geralt of Rivia has an official release date and trailer. After conflicting reports stating a June or late May release, the trailer officially states May 31st for the Witcher 3’s final DLC.

Blood and Wine takes Geralt to the land of Toussaint. Unlike many of the towns and cities within the Witcher universe, Toussaint appears untouched by war. Toussaint looks vibrant, colorful, and beautiful. It appears prosperous and as Geralt’s guide proudly proclaims in the trailer, “A land of wealth and wine.” But of course, Toussaint has a dark secret.

I guessed vampires based on the title and I appear to be correct. At least based on the trailer, vampires appear to be heavily involved in the DLC. I’m hoping for some kind of immortality dilemma for Geralt.

The DLC supposedly has over 20 hours of content, not counting all the time spent playing Gwent with your new Skellige deck. CD Projekt Red heard players’ complaints about The Witcher 3’s uncharismatic villain and has promised a very intriguing antagonist for Geralt. If Blood and Wine is anything like the excellent Hearts of Stone DLC, then you’re in for a treat and I for one am absolutely downloading this on May 31st.
