Eurogamer.it recently conducted an interview with CD Projekt RED to discuss the upcoming Blood and Wine expansion for The Witcher 3. In the interview, CD Projekt RED discusses how Blood and Wine is quite a bit more “complex” than the main storyline of Wild Hunt.
The expansion is set to expand the game by quite a margin. Here’s the official description:
Blood and Wine is a 20-hour tale that will introduce the all-new in-game region of Toussaint, and will take Geralt to a land untainted by war, where an atmosphere of carefree indulgence and knightly ritual masks an ancient, bloody secret.
CD Projekt RED told Eurogamer that Blood and Wine is a completely separate story from the original plot found in Wild Hunt. According to the interview, the developers believe they “have achieved something even better than the main game.”
One of things CD wanted to do for the expansion was to create a more “charismatic enemy” for Geralt to face, as well as develop a more complex story they believe “players will appreciate.” This is Geralt’s final story according to the interview, so it sounds like CD Projekt RED wants to make it a memorable and lasting experience for players.
The main plotline of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was good in its own right, but some of the sidequests in the game, such as the much talked about “Family Matters” sidequest, was a league above the main plotline in terms of complex themes and maturity.
