You've hunted among the rolling hills of Hirschfelden and explored the iconic Layton Lake District. Now get ready to face nature's most challenging conditions during a rare hunting expedition to Medved-Taiga National Park. Inspired by the harsh, frozen landscape of Siberia, you'll traverse the unforgiving tundra, enter into the drunken forests and venture out on the frozen bay. Here, the weather can turn at an instant, leaving you swept in whirling snow and surrounded by cracking ice.
THE ANIMALS OF MEDVED-TAIGA
Despite its grim appearance, Medved-Taiga National Park is bustling with life. You will find prey like Musk Deer, Reindeer (also known as Caribou in North America) and Wild Boar. But larger species also roam. The majestic Moose travels these plains, as does the fierce Brown Bear. Perhaps most unique of all - hunters in this reserve will face the highly intelligent and ghost-like Lynx.
MISSIONS AND MEASURES
The open world of Medved-Taiga National Park measures 25 square miles (64 square kilometers), the same impressive size as Hirschfelden and Layton Lake District. It features a brand new, exciting narrative with 32 missions, 50 side missions and countless unique sights to discover.
You take the role of an expert survivalist and hunter contracted to assist Alena Khasavovna and her scientific expedition. In addition to being a highly-trained climatologist, Alena hails from a reindeer herding people native to the region, offering her a unique insight into its challenges. The expedition is off to a bad start, and it's up to you to gather your group, help the locals and make sure everyone gets through the expedition in one piece. But it won't be easy. Not everyone - and everything - wants you to succeed.
SHARE YOUR EXPERIENCE
As with previous paid DLCs, players that don't own the content themselves can join a multiplayer game set in Medved-Taiga National Park at no cost, by finding a player that owns it and simply joining their game. Multiplayer games allow hunters to compete or cooperate - the latter should prove useful in this challenging reserve. Lastly, the ATVs (available as a separate DLC purchase) are of course fully functional here. Driving on ice is as fun as it is nerve-wracking.
DRESS UP, HEAD OUT
To celebrate the release of Medved-Taiga National Park DLC, all players of theHunter: Call of the Wild will receive a free new set of clothes (purchasable with in-game currency) to enjoy in any of the game's hunting reserves. And available exclusively for players brave enough to take on Siberia, there may just be a variation of one of the game's weapons waiting for you as you progress through the brand new storyline...
A WASTELAND FULL OF LIFE
Medved-Taiga National Park features a dramatic environment unlike anything you've seen (let alone hunted within). The permafrost engulfing this region has created a massive sinkhole and forced clusters of trees to grow shallow roots, making them tilt and form the characteristic Drunken Forest.
Not even the rock formations remain untouched by the elements. The impressive Lena Pillars have been ground down and shaped by the elements for millennia, slowly carving their unique silhouettes.

Medved-Taiga is well made DLC, released with great timing and packing a punch, actually. Landscapes in this DLC are breathtaking and amazing. No words are capable of giving it proper justice, because you must see it for yourself. You will feel the snow coming out of your desktop (not PC itself, though - there it will be burning inside from still pretty meh optimisation job developers did with this Unreal Engine 4 game). Simply beautiful, just like the sound. It adds plenty of missions (around 30) with new batch of animals, which is also fine. The price for it is just right - it adds 25 square miles of content, which would be around 1/3rd of the vanilla, which is pretty good number in my opinion. Overall, if you enjoyed vanilla, you will enjoy it even more with this. In my opinion, it is better than vanilla based on how it looks. Really, get it now, you won't regret it!
