The Witcher 3's Blood and Wine expansion will feature a completely new musical score

The Witcher 3

We already know The Witcher 3's 20 hour Blood and Wine expansion will take us to a completely new land - specifically Toussaint, a Mediterranean-style setting untouched by the war and peppered with Vineyards - but it turns out there's going to be a new musical score to suit this fresh locale.

There's a lot of sex in The Witcher 3, but not quite as much sex as there is in our list of PC's best sex games.

The Witcher 3's soundtrack was excellent. I can still hear The Witcher 3's "la, la, la, la la la" fight music in my mind every time someone annoys me in real life.

Marcin Przybylowicz (composer on The Witcher 3 and Cyberpunk 2077), Mikolai Stroinski (composer for The Vanishing of Ethan Carter) and Piotrek Musial (composer for This War of Mine) will be collaborating on the soundtrack for Blood and Wine.

"The three of us are working on the music for Blood and wine, and it will be completely new. We’re not using any pieces that were written before, because we get a completely new area, new characters, and a new plot," said Przybylowicz in an interview with GamePressure. "They deserve to have their music written from scratch."

Because Toussaint is a peaceful land compared to The Witcher 3's war torn Velen, the soundtrack required a change of mood from Geralt's vanilla adventures. "It will be less depressing than what you know from Velen," reveals Przybylowicz. "On the other hand, if you played Witcher 3 or the first expansion, you know well that nothing in this universe is that colorful, and there will be some grime involved. [The] music will have that grime too." 

Polish folk band Percival are back for the expansion, too, so expect more "la, la, la, la la la", but perhaps in a different order. Blood and Wine is releasing in the first half of 2016, for £19.99.
