Delivering about 30 hours of new content as an expansion to the main game, this adventure goes above and beyond the call of duty with its depth and gameplay. If you liked The Witcher III: Wild Hunt and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt: Hearts of Stone, you'll no doubt appreciate the quality and quantity of Geralt's final adventure. Along with a new story, plot twists, quests, and a huge new location (Toussaint is as big as No Man’s Land in the main game, by the way), this expansion adds extra features to the existing game. These features include a dynamic "Point of Interest" system, which lets you alter the scene based on decisions you make and actions you take (killing bandits in a castle hideout, for example, will affect the number of enemies in a surrounding camp), an interesting mutation character system (a color-coded strategy that requires ability points and mutagens), a new Gwent deck for the popular card game, and enhanced visuals and sounds to help make the game even more engaging.
But it's not just the new features -- or impressive length of the new quests -- that make this expansion so worthwhile. The entire package fuses a fun combat mechanic, RPG upgrades and customization, memorable characters and well-paced quests, smartly-written dialogue (with plenty of humor), scary elements to keep you on your toes, and absolutely stunning visuals and special effects that help lose you in this vast fantasy world. In other words, it's not merely the sum of its parts but an overall magical game that's well worth exploring from tip to tail, but for mature players only. Whether you've already purchased the main game or if you're new to this series but like RPGs, the Blood and Wine finale is a must-own adventure.
