The Witcher 3 already has another final expansion pack in the world in the form of Blood and Wine and it's even better

The Witcher 3 was easily one of the best games of 2015, and the first expansion pack, Hearts of Stone, was a fun jaunt back into the world of Geralt of Rivia. There's a second and final pack on the way too, with the title of Blood and Wine. And it sounds like it's going to be something very special indeed.

For one thing, all the evidence suggests this could be the last ever outing for lead character Geralt. CD Project RED has been dedicated to telling his stories through games since the first Witcher which began development more than a decade ago.

So the company will want the character to go out on a high, and they've been talking about what Blood and Wine will bring. According to a recent interview, they think that this is the best story yet for the Geralt and introduces a 'complex story' with a new enemy who is more charasmatic than any we've seen before. CDPR has demonstrated a talent for creating morally grey worlds and if they think they've crafted their finest narrative yet, we just can't wait to play it.

Blood and Wine is set for release on the PS4, Xbox One and PC sometime in 2016. We're willing to bet it will arrive before the summer, but don't be disappointed if it doesn't! In the meantime, if you haven't played The Witcher yet, sort it out!
