If you’re after a bit of festive fun this time of year, look no further than the fantastic new ‘Winter is Coming’ mod for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. This mod takes The Witcher 3’s usually downtrodden world, littered with hanging corpses and rotting drowners, and drapes the entire thing in a glistening blanket of snow.

Geralt can frolic in the snow, with just about the entirety of the game world given a winter makeover. Considering it feels like the whole game normally takes place in springtime, this is a pretty neat addition which could help spruce up a second playthrough. Mod creator KNG has done a sterling job as well, it looks fantastic. Be warned this may be the sort of thing which could hamper your performance somewhat.

To install the mod just download it from NexusMods  and unpack it into “\yourWitcher3Directory\” and it will run automatically.

To delete it simply remove the files:

  • \yourWitcher3Directory\dlc\KNGBloodAndIceDLC\
  • \yourWitcher3Directory\Mods\modKNGWiC\
  • \yourWitcher3Directory\Mods\modKNGWiCSnowRetexture\
