This is Alan Padziński. Actual human being, but also master of the various sword styles of The Witcher universe.
Dark Horse and CD Projekt Red have joined forces to create all sorts of Witching memorabilia, starting with a gorgeous set of premium action figures launching this fall. Come gaze upon them.
If, the keyword is if. Perhaps, it would look something like this.
Got an Xbox One? Love The Witcher games? Well, you can now play the middle game in CD Projekt’s beloved action-RPG franchise for free.

Gaunter O’Dimm, one of the stars of The Witcher 3’s expansion Hearts of Stone, is a mysterious dude. Turns out he’s also a sneaky one, hidden so well in the background of the game that even its biggest fans couldn’t find him.
...fantasy herbalists are basically just drug dealers.
Heart of Stone, the new expansion for The Witcher 3, basically consists of three long, experimental and amazing new quests. Kirk spoke the other day about the first one, but I now want to talk about the second.
A month or so ago, I would’ve told you I was done playing The Witcher 3. Turns out that’s not the case.
People don’t only love CD Projekt RED because The Witcher 3 was great. The company released 16 DLCs for free, talked openly about the game’s budget and profits, and included a “thank you” note in the box.

Not everyone was happy with the love triangle at the center of 2015’s hottest dating sim, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Fortunately, the game’s developers have been listening.
You may have seen the news today that The Witcher 3 has sold well over 6 million copies. Impressive! We don’t normally like to talk about raw sales figures here on Kotaku, but I think there’s a lesson to be learned from this particular success.
I don’t think first-person would necessarily make The Witcher 3 a better game, but damn this looks cool.
