The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt: Born To Be A Masterpiece

Released last year in May, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was one of the best games of 2015 and has gone on to win many Game of the Year Awards. Given its vast open world, interesting quests, and beautiful graphics, it’s not hard to see why the game has gone down so well.

Hearts of Stone was better than the main game, so i wouldn't be surprised, if it's the same case with this. The stories are more contained, sort of like Witcher 2 was.

Hearts of Stone was great, but not better than the main game in my opinion.

Takwin3077d ago

I already thought it was the best and most enjoyable game I'd ever played and I finished 136 hours before any major patches.

The first xpac was amazing and on par in length with medium-length, full-priced games. The first expansion was just a honed version of the regular Witcher 3, which is frankly totally awesome and fine with me.

From what little we've seen and heard, they are going to expand on that in this final expansion and it looks to be truly epic and will rival the length of 95% of all games, and the quality will be at least what TW3 was, if not greater.

The Witcher 3 with no free DLC, no paid expansions and no patches was already my favorite game ever. They have just went above and beyond what any other dev would've done. CDPR is the best!

He wouldn't be much of a lead writer if he didn't believe in the quality of his work, but that's still a big call... I absolutely loved the main game's storyline - I'd just finished Sapkowski's novels (and the first two games), so for me it was the ultimate culmination of an intensely Witchery year.

Getting the 'best' of the 30-something endings on my first playthrough was incredibly satisfying.

Hearts of Stone was like the videogame version of the post-coital cigarette - a refreshing dose of carefree satisfaction, the perfect compliment to what came before... I expect Blood and Wine will be just as humerous - Toussaint is like an alcoholic's version of Disneyland, with drunken knights, wine festivals and magic fields where kitchen utensils grow.

He mentions a charismatic antagonist, though he doesn't specify as to whether this character is new or not... it's probably not Fringilla Vigo or Avallach (who has a cave down that way), though I've no doubt there will be another wave of characters and locations from the books.

Either way, I'm excited... it's a little troubling to think that it might be the last Witcher game I ever play, but CDPR have basically confirmed there will at some point be more (the year 2022 seems reasonable) and of course there's also Cyberpunk to look foward to.

I plan on reading the books, and I really don't read much fiction. They look very well done.

poppinslops3077d ago

They're brilliant - better than the games in a lot of ways... most of 'em have been translated into English, though there are a few where you'll have to rely on fan translations, which are mostly great, but can get a little confusing (grammatical errors, misspelt/repeated words etc).

Apparently someone's making a live-action series of films based on the books, but I don't know when that's supposed to happen.

dip013077d ago

CDPR is one of my fav devs. I hope this expansion pack feature gets mainstream again instead of silly minor dlcs. The expansion pack for Dying Light also looks good.

Grap3077d ago

that is a bold claim, anyhow i don't doubt CDPR one bit.

10 Expansions That Are Better Than The Main Game

NoobFeed Editor Joshua Burt writes - It is now a mainstay of gaming that post a title's release, and DLC will accompany the game. Some of the most popular games of the last fifteen years have followed this practice. But there are some DLCs that are better than others. That stands on the shoulders of their base game, and in some cases… Surpass it. These are the 10 expansions that were better than the main game.

Damn, I feel stupid when years ago I played all the dlc for fallout 3 except the pitt. My younger ass looked at it and thought it was boring without trying I believe... Well good reason to fire up the old dusty ps3!

PhillyDillyDee727d ago

Bethesda usually does great DLC. Makes sense they are on the list 3 times.

generic-user-name727d ago

Solid list, I'd add inFamous: Festival of Blood, although it was a standalone download, it still felt like an inFamous 2 expansion.

Blood and Wine might be the best ever though.

SullysCigar727d ago

I'd also add in Horizon The Frozen Wilds. As I started it, I wasn't sure I had the energy, but my God that was awesome. Some of the best weapons, enemies and missions in Horizon for sure.

Blood and Wine is always the reason these "best DLC of all time" list gets made in the first place nowadays.
Don't think CDPR can come any where near with any upcoming CP2077 DLC.

Silly Mammo727d ago

I have beaten Bloodborne but though i have the DLC I never played through it. For now I want to wait and see if it gets a Bluepoint remake.

anast727d ago

It's the best DLC in the genre. You are missing out.

SarwarRon727d ago

I double that. If you've liked Bloodborne, don't miss out The Old Hunters.

I skipped on Demons Souls remake, but Bloodborne would be day one. I love the game, but it is very, very jaggy and really needs a 60fps edition.

anast727d ago

I didn't like Blood and Wine too much, but the grandmaster gear is worth it.
