Remember when CD Projekt RED hyped up Blood & Wine, the second major expansion for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, to be better than the base game? It sounds weird when you think about it, especially because the base game was more than 100 hours long while this expansion will average some 20 hours of gameplay. Thus, CD Projekt Red marketing lead Michal Platkow-Gilewski clarified the comment to GameSpot and noted that it was a more refined experience overall.

Blood and Wine is the sum of all the experiences we gained when creating Wild Hunt, so it’s definitely more refined than Wild Hunt in many regards, but that doesn’t mean it’s better per se.”

Along with new monsters and quests, the new location Toussaint will apparently rival the original game’s areas in terms of scale. Platkow-Gilewski noted though that, “I wouldn’t point fingers at what’s better separately, as each addition to Wild Hunt (including over 10 updates we’ve released so far) enriches the overall experience you get from The Witcher as a game in general. The base game with the expansions is simply better than without them.”

Blood & Wine is out sometime this year for Xbox One, PC and PS4 so stay tuned for more details.
