Welcome to the closest thing on Earth to Westeros.

It’s no secret that HBO’s hit medieval fantasy based off the books of George R. R. Martin is a boozy, bloody fest.

In fact, there’s rarely an episode in the five seasons of the TV show that doesn’t feature a character—usually world-domination-wannabes Tyrion or Cersei Lannister—musing their fates and plotting their next moves over a glass of wine or hefty cup of ale.

So while fans eagerly await the premiere of the seventh season and

The Witcher 3: Game Of The Year Edition Unveils Beautiful Launch Trailer

Held up as Geralt of Rivia’s grand finale before its initial release, developer CD Projekt Red is now set to bid adieu to its prized RPG series – for now, at least – with the release of The Witcher 3: Game Of The Year Edition.

Bundling together both the Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine expansion packs – not to mention those 16 pieces of free Dlc that were rolled out soon after launch – this is very much the full package for The Witcher 3 fans.

The Witcher 3: Game Of The Year Edition Rides Into Stores On August 30

Following up on their reveal last month, CD Projekt Red has announced that The Witcher 3: Game of the Year Edition will hit shelves on August 30. The package will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC, and will carry a cost of $49.99.

Originally released in May 2015, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is the critically acclaimed conclusion to the story of Geralt of Rivia. The title is well deserving of the Game of the Year moniker, as evidenced by our glowing review. The epic adventure, which holds a 93 rating on Metacritic, was on my list of the best games of 2015, as well.

While the set will be released under the Game of the Year edition in most markets, it will actually be released as The Witcher 3: Complete Edition in North America. As one would expect from that title, the re-release will come with the full game, as well

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Game Of The Year Edition Is Coming

Five weeks on from the release of Blood and Wine, billed as the second and final expansion for the adorned RPG, developer CD Projekt Red has confirmed that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Game of the Year Edition is coming.

News first emerged when German ratings board Usk posted a listing of said GotY edition for release across PS4, Xbox One and PC in August. Bundling together both the Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine expansions – not to mention the string of free Dlc released for Wild Hunt – Usk slated the comprehensive package for a late August launch.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Blood And Wine Review

A little over a year since The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt launched worldwide, CD Projekt Red have released the second and final expansion to conclude the adventures of Geralt of Rivia. But after a mammoth main game and a substantial first piece of Dlc in the form of Hearts of Stone, you’d be forgiven for pessimistically thinking that Blood and Wine may be nothing more than the offcuts of the early development and an attempt to squeeze a few more bucks out of the series’ adoring public. Such thoughts would be absolute folly, however, as CD Projekt Red have instead helped us return to Geralt’s world with an adventure worthy of a retail release in its own right.

But in truth, we surely should have expected nothing less, right? Both Wild Hunt and Hearts of Stone gathered universal acclaim with critics and fans alike, and the saga of

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’s final Dlc, Blood and Wine, is due for release on 31st May and promises to be full of twists, romances and deceit wrapped up in a 30+ hour adventure.

In Blood and Wine, players take Geralt of Rivia to the remote land of Toussaint.

This huge Dlc will introduce a new land to explore, new people to interact with and new creatures to discover and kill.

So that people can get an idea of what they will be facing in this new land, CD Projekt Red have released the Blood and Wine New Region trailer.

Take A Tour Of Toussaint In The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Blood And Wine Region Trailer

Following a closer look at The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Blood and Wine‘s new region in a developer diary last week, an extra trailer now gives a more detailed look at glorious Toussaint. The ‘New Region’ trailer showcases the fairy tale atmosphere of the enormous expansion, but reveals something very sinister hidden in the shadows.

We’re introduced to the wonderful nuances of the new area with sweeping landscape shots and glimpses into the simple lives of its residents. Toussaint appears like a quaint town hidden under the grandeur of an enormous castle and a hulking mountain. It’s a land said to be untouched by the horror of war, where the finest wines are made and sold.

But, as the narrator advises us of all of Toussaint’s glory, a troubling question presides over the trailer; “what brought the White Wolf to this land of sheep?” Well, despite

CD Projekt Red Talk The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Blood And Wine In New Dev Diary

The team at CD Projekt Red have released a new developer diary video as they introduce more about Geralt’s final mission in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Blood and Wine. The video also features plenty of new gameplay footage for the expansion, giving us the best look yet at new region Toussaint.

Introducing the make-up of the new region, the team talk about a stunning land, unlike anything else we’ve seen in The Witcher 3 so far:

Toussaint is a land of picturesque beauty where the line between fairy tales and reality is blurred […] Everyone’s having a good time; it’s colourful, it’s beautiful, like something out of a fairy tale. So what problems could they have?

Well, as it turns out, there are more than enough problems to plague the inhabitants of this wonderful land. With warring vineyard owners sending bands of thugs after each other

CD Projekt Red Say Blood And Wine Will Look Better Than The Witcher 3

CD Projekt Red continued their build-up to Geralt’s latest adventure by asserting that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Blood and Wine would actually look better than the base game. In an interview with Eurogamer, the developers even added that the expansion would present a technical upgrade as well.

In response to criticism over an apparent “graphical downgrade” in The Witcher 3, it seems CD Projekt Red were intent upon proving the doubters wrong and providing the game’s critics with something gorgeous enough to shut them up. Senior environment artist, Len de Gracia told Eurogamer just how they went about this and made the graphical upgrade a reality:

80, 85, probably even 90 per cent of the assets – in terms of environment that you find in this game – are brand new. You can just look at the market stalls right now: you would never see the same market stalls in the base game.
