Witcher DLC Visually Impressive

New screenshots for the latest Witcher DLC hit this week, and they are impressive. Gone are the war torn country sides of Novigrad and Velen. This all new area of Toussaint is alive and well. People are happy, the economy is flowing, the countryside is fairly neat - outside of a few monsters of course - and everyone is living a generally happy life.

There was serious contention last year for specific awards - although like this year, the Golden Joysticks really sheds light on favorites - and that made for an entertaining night. The other great thing about these awards? Trailers, reveals, and a look forward to 2016. You won't want to miss it!
