The lovely ladies of Toussaint

The Witcher 3 has always been a rather colorful game, a fact one could easily notice by climbing onto Roach and simply taking a stroll through the countryside, but from what I can see the Blood and Wine expansion is taking things a step further.

There are fields littered with blooming red flowers, rolling green hills completely untouched by war, an endless sea of beautiful vineyards and equally beautiful maidens, but also hordes of bloodthirsty vampires because the universe has decided that Geralt should never have a moment's rest. Feast your eyes on the trailer below:

My favorite part of the entire video, however, is not the lovely scenery, but rather the mildly annoyed look on Geralt's face as a giant windmill-destroying monstrosity barges into view and ruins the otherwise nice and sunny moment. 

A Witcher's life is not an easy one, that's for sure, and thankfully Geralt will soon be able to go for a well deserved vacation as CDPR has confirmed that Blood and Wine will not only be the last The Witcher 3 expansion, but also the big finale of Geralt's long and arduous journey. Even though he's a completely fictional character I can't help but feel a tinge of sadness whenever I remember that, as Geralt has managed to remain one of the most consistently likable and actually realistic protagonists in any game where Trolls and vampires are a thing that exists.

Blood and Wine will be arriving to all platforms on May 31, and I for one look forward to saying one last goodbye to Geralt, the political powerhouse and occasional monster slayer.
