For many months CD Projekt RED have been busy working on the content of the much anticipated second expansion for the Polish hit RPG The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Now, Blood and Wine comes out for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 in a little over a week – on May 31, 2016. Alongside the programmers worked the musicians under Marcin Przybylowicz – the author of the amazing Witcher 3 soundtrack. Early results of his works are already available, as the Blood and Wine main theme was posted on YouTube in two versions: English and Polish.
The main theme from the new expansion is based on Lullaby of Woe sang by the vampiress in A Night to Remember trailer. In English version the lead vocals are performed by Laura Doddington, supported by Jessica Jeza Vautor. If you want more Witcher music, check out the video from a Blood and Wine recording session with the accordion.
