Any time, dude.

If you're playing on PC there are shader mods that can help you tune the game's colours to your liking.

Unfortunately, on consoles you're limited but I believe there are some settings in the game options that could help. The only other alternative is to play with your TV picture settings (or make a profile e.g. Cinema, Game, or Sports mode if you have a SmartTV).

My options are very limited.  I am on a console, and my TV doesn't have advanced color-correction controls.  The best I can do (and have done) is use the coolest color-temperature setting.  That takes away much of the excessive green, but also brings down the reds.  Whites turn a bit bluish.  I've also taken the saturation down a fair amount.  I'd kill for proper individual RGB adjustments right now.  At least the settings are saved individually for each input source, so other connected devices (like this PC I'm typing on) don't get their look messed up.

Despite the extremely overdone color and contrast, and resulting depressed low-light visibility, Blood and Wine is brilliant.  I suppose it helps that I get into the whole Boorman's Excalibur, chivalric-knights atmosphere that permeates it.  Even without this tilt, the story and all the different consequences of the player's actions are, I think, without peer.  Its world is gorgeously realized, from the scenery to the characters.  It is so magnificently well-crafted.  Shame that the underlying mechanics and software tech are in need of so much spit and polish.  Nothing worse than the vanilla game's problems, though.  I lived with them then, and managed to live with them here again.

Anyone who likes TW3 absolutely needs to play this.  I played Hearts of Stone and B&W in quick succession, and while HoS is good, it's absolutely dwarfed in both quality and quantity by B&W.  I do recommend playing both for the unique expansions to crafting and abilities.
