Blood and Wine è la seconda espansione di The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Fu annunciata il 7 aprile 2015 dopo la pubblicazione della prima espansione di gioco, Hearts of Stone. "Sangue e Vino" è stata rilasciata il 31 maggio 2016 per tutte e tre le piattaforme: Windows, PlayStation 4 e Xbox One.[1]

Blood and Wine è un'avventura di oltre 20 ore che introdurrà i giocatori dentro la nuovissima regione del Toussaint e che porterà Geralt in una terra non contaminata dalla guerra, dove un'atmosfera di spensierata indulgenza e rituale cavalleresco maschera un antico segreto di sangue[2]

L'espansione include nuovi personaggi, nuovi potenti mostri, nuove armature, nuove armi e un nuovo mazzo di carte Gwent. Inoltre, l'espansione introdurrà una nuova meccanica di gioco chiamata "Mutazioni" oltre alla tintura dell'armatura dei set da Witcher . Le missioni sono progettate per personaggi di livello 34 o superiore. Il suo contenuto è accessibile prima e durante la modalità Nuova partita +.

Diventa il cacciatore di mostri professionista, Geralt di Rivia, ed esplora il regno del Toussaint, una terra remota non toccata dalla guerra, dove svelerai l'orribile segreto dietro ad una bestia che terrorizza il regno ed i suoi abitanti. Con tutti i sentieri che portano a vicoli ciechi, solo uno strigo può risolvere il mistero e sopravvivere al male che si nasconde nel buio della notte. Introducendo un regno completamente nuovo da attraversare, nuovi personaggi e mostri, Blood and Wine è un'avventura di oltre 30 ore, piena di oscuri segreti, colpi di scena inaspettati, romanticismo ed inganno[3]

Features[modifica | modifica sorgente]

Explore an entirely new part of The Witcher’s vast open world – the land of wine, Toussaint:

  • Embark on over 30 hours of new adventures and discover a land unlike anything you’ve seen in Wild Hunt or Hearts of Stone.
  • Visit new points of interest and set out on new side-quests in a realm rivalling No Man’s Land or Novigrad in size.
  • Kick back and relax in your very own vineyard, Corvo Bianco, a real home away from home.

Hunt down an elusive beast terrorizing the kingdom:

  • Unravel the mystery of the strange killings – investigate a series of brutal murders and decipher the pattern to predict who’s going to die next.
  • Discover the dirty secrets of Toussaint’s capital, Beauclair – explore the city by day, ask questions by night.
  • Use new gear, items, and combine them with your skill to slay monsters never before seen in the series.

Embark on your final quest in a world still brimming with things to do:

  • Visit a world of fairytales gone wrong and battle surreal creatures you know from children’s tales and books.
  • Dye witcher armors in different colors thanks to an all-new game mechanic.
  • Take on knights in a grand tourney to show your true fighting skill, or set out to discover the gruesome mystery behind a spoon-collecting creature known as a wight.
  • Team up with powerful allies to take down the beast terrorizing the kingdom, or turn a blind eye to what’s going on and play Gwent with an all-new Mazzo Skellige.

Gameplay[modifica | modifica sorgente]

The region of Toussaint has never before been seen in The Witcher series and contains:

  • Over 90 new missioni.
  • Over 40 new points of interest.
  • More than 30 new armi.
  • More than 20 new monstri.
  • Dynamic Points of Interest system – interacting with the main POI of a given area will affect adjacent points of interest (e.g. killing bandits in a ruined castle hideout will affect the number of enemies in surrounding camps).
  • 14000 lines of dialogue (Hearts of Stone had 6000 lines).
  • 100 individual pieces of armature (including new witcher sets).
    • A new witcher armor class, ‘Gran maestro’.
  • Nuova partita + (NP+) maximum level increased to 100.
  • All new armour dye mechanic – every piece of witcher gear can have its color changed by using a dye. Dyes can be obtained in various ways: they can be bought from the new dye merchant; crafted from a recipe; dropped as loot. Dyes can only be obtained in Toussaint.

Mutations[modifica | modifica sorgente]

The Mutation system consists of 12 new and unique combat abilities, with their true potential unleashed by playing NP+. They are first unlocked through a quest started by a letter from Yennefer.

Example mutations:

  • A sign can land critical hits. Enemies killed with a critical hit from a sign explode.
  • Instead of dying, the Player is healed and gets damage immunity.
  • Opponents knocked down by Aard freeze and die instantly. Opponents that were not knocked down become frozen.

User interface[modifica | modifica sorgente]

The user interface (UI) has been significantly redesigned, making greater use of space while improving content identification and information flow. Books have been moved to the glossary section and looting a readable book offers a notification that grants instant access to its contents. Geralt's model can also be rotated in the Statistics panel.
