I think that's the first time ever that a dlc is my most anticipated game of the year
Hearts of stone was incredible, even better than the main game in many ways.
I expect no less from Blood&Wine, but I hear it's supposed to be bigger.
Just finishing up Hearts of Stone these past couple days. These aren't your typical 'throw the b team on it for quick content' type add-ons. I was absolutely floored at how they managed to make cutscenes EVEN better than the full game... Just doesn't even make sense.
They have been silently working on this for a while, one can only imagine the quality of content we are due for. Fuckin hyped.
Side note. I missed out on the Gwent cards for the physical release of HoS but I will NOT make that same mistake again. Please come to amazon.ca! I need those cards!
Xbox One Collector's Edition you got the Nilfgaard/Northern Realms decks
Hearts of Stone Limited Edition you got the Monsters/Scoia'tael decks
Blood & Wine Limited Edition you get the Nilfgaard/Northern Realms decks
If you want all 4 decks you would have needed to buy the XB1 CE + HoS LE or buy HoS LE + buy the other 2 decks from eBay (not cheap!). That doesn't seem fair so I guess this is them re-releasing those 2 decks from the XB1 CE so that everyone else can own them now. Also, the Northern Realms/Nilfgaard decks might be updated with cards that aren't available in the XB1 CE decks. For example, the HoS decks include 4 new cards that aren't available in the base game.
in the files, he could still show up though, we have to wait for patch 1.13 to confirm or deny. I kind of hope he doesn't though. I never understood the fan fascination with him. He is named dropped one too many times in the base game though...
