CDPR Releases New Witcher 3: Blood and Wine Screenshots

There’s no shortage of gamers who agree that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was the absolute best game that came out in 2015, and I definitely agree with them. The game’s depth, graphics, incredible music and unique atmosphere allowed it to stand out among its peers and crush its competition by earning hundreds of Game of the Year awards from different publications. The game has received a fresh and sizeable expansion pack named Hearts of Stone on October 13, 2015, and it is now ready to receive its second and last expansion titled Blood and Wine. From what we’ve seen so far, this expansion is the most colorful and the most impressive graphics-wise, and according to Senior Social Media and Community Coordinator, Marcin Momot, it will also include a very gripping story.

“I can already tell you Blood and Wine is a fascinating story, with every sort of twist and turn you’d expect from our writers. Toussaint, the new realm we’re creating for the expansion, is unlike anything you’ve seen in Wild Hunt – carefree and colorful, but your gut never stops telling you that there’s some real dark stuff happening underneath all that. We’ll be revealing more information in May, however, to sweeten the wait, here are some fresh screenshots from the expansion.”

Soon enough in May, we’re going to receive more information on Blood and Wine, but until then, we can just have a look at these wonderful new screenshots released by CDPR.

No DRM For The PC Version Of The Upcoming Sequel – The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

CD Projekt Red’s Co-founder and Joint CEO, Marcin Iwinski, has stated that even though they have played with it in the past, their upcoming title, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, will not contain DRM of any sort on PC.

I’d like to say it loud and clear: The PC version of The Witcher 3 will have absolutely no DRM from day 0. Zero. Zip. Nada. It doesn’t matter if you choose to buy it on GOG.com and support us directly or buy the game in box format, you’ll still get the 100% DRM-free experience. And this goes for the whole world.

In a bit of a retrospective comment he was honest enough to say, “We’ve fiddled with DRM in the past (Oh boy! How young and naïve we were;)) and that’s enough. Lesson learned.”

The game will also be made available on Steam, which by nature uses DRM which is out of CDPR’s control, but he went on to say that gamers’ have a choice as to where they purchase the game and that anywhere that CDPR has control, like GOG.com, there will be absolutely no DRM.
