The new area in The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine as big as the Skellige Islands

The new area of Touissant introduced in The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine will be as big as the Skellige Islands. According to CD Projekt RED, the expansion pack should come out before E3 2016.

As the second and last expansion to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is getting closer to its release, more and more info emerges. The latest news is that the new area of Touissant offered in The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine is going to be as big as all the Skellige Islands combined, said CD Projekt RED in an interview for Gamestar.de (as translated by a Reddit user), which is pretty impressive. There is still no specific release date, but according to the developer the expansion should come out before this year’s E3, which starts on June 14.

Will the improved grass make it to the original game?

Moreover, Blood and Wine will offer improved graphics – the devs jokingly said that it looks better now than it did in the E3 2014 trailer. At last weekend’s PAX East a new Gwent deck was confirmed to be included in the expansion and we also saw a couple of new screenshots, but we still haven’t seen a trailer or a teaser for the add-on.

In other news on The Witcher franchise, there are no plans for remastering the first two installments or bundling all three games, but it is possible that The Witcher 3 will get a GOTY edition with all expansions, DLCs and patches included.
