The Witcher 3 had my game of the year title back when it released last year. A year has passed and it is still one of the best experiences I have had on the new consoles. I finally finished the latest DLC Blood and Wine and I’ll be damned if this isn't one of the best games I have played in a long time and the DLC just goes to show how much love and passion CD Project Red puts into their releases
First things first, Blood and Wine is not just a set of new missions and side-quests, it is also an entirely new region that you are free to roam about. And Toussaint is a beautiful and colourful region busting at the rim with NPCs and monsters for you to interact with. Add an incredibly addictive and exciting new storyline with twists and turns and there is no doubt in my mind that this is worth your hard-earned money.
Hell, there is even a part in the game where you teleport to an entirely new piece of land, through a portal which is a fairytale, literally. You'll meet up with known fable characters and legends and they all have their own CD Project Red take to them. There is even a unicorn for god sakes!
Besides all that the DLC features new monsters, new characters, new weapons and armour and of course, brand new Gwent cards for your growing deck. Although you can play this DLC at whatever level you want it is recommended that you are at least level 34+. The DLC is around 30+ hours. You even get a home during the play-through that you can upgrade. And if that doesn't wet your beak how about 90 new quests, 40 new P.O.I, 100 individual pieces of armour, 30 new weapons, Max level increased to 100 and the list goes on and on.
Blood and Wine is an incredible addition to an already over-packed experience, and it truly takes The Witcher 3 to a whole new world with the amount of add-ons you get with this DLC. It is heart-warming to see a developer put this much effort into a game over a year into its official release and still release add-ons that continue to buff the overall experience which in my case was already close to perfect. This is a must buy if I ever saw one!
