The Witcher came out on PC in 2007. That feels like a lifetime ago. The series is now easily one of my favorites, but a decade ago I, like a lot of people, had no idea it even existed. That’s created a weird dynamic as I play The Witcher 1 for the first time knowing everything that happens in the second two games,…
It’s hard to talk about CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077 without talking about the studio’s last game, The Witcher 3. And so it came to be that a lot of our E3 interview with Cyberpunk’s quest designer involved discussion of both games.
As part of today’s Microsoft E3 press conference, Witcher developer CD Projekt Red showed off a new teaser of its next monster-sized, but also monster-free RPG, Cyberpunk 2077.
When Lauren S. Hissrich, the showrunner of the upcoming Witcher Netflix show, posted a picture of her writer’s room to Twitter, a vocal minority took umbrage at how diverse the writers were. By engaging with these people, Hissrich gave us all an interesting look into how The Witcher is being produced.
The forests of The Witcher 3 are some of the most lifelike and beautiful in video games. There’s a lot more to them than just looks, though: there’s history coursing through their veins, not to mention connections to Polish folklore.
The Witcher 3 is a sprawling single-player RPG with so much to do it can be overwhelming. The game world is huge. Points of interest litter the map. Dialogue trees mean you can play through pivotal scenes in different ways. I can think of far worse games to be stuck on a desert island with for the rest of my life.…
I am not normally a man to be wooed by the giant heads of a Nendoroid figure, but holy crap, this one is Geralt. And he comes with the bathtub.
This week contained the 10th Anniversary of The Witcher series of video games, and I think it’s appropriate that we celebrate Geralt, the lovable protagonist of those games.
Geralt’s journey might be over, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t still loose ends to tie up. With Witcher series developer CD Projekt off paving Cyberpunk 2077's neon-lit streets, modders have taken it upon themselves to give The Witcher 3 a fan-made epilogue. Using The Witcher 2.
After plenty of speculation and guessing, a new trailer shows The Witcher’s Geralt of Rivia will be in Soulcalibur VI after all.
Marcin Momot, CD Projekt Red’s community manager, teased on Twitter today that Geralt of Rivia from the Witcher franchise would make an appearance in another game for the first time this year. We don’t know what game it is yet, but here are some suggestions.
A princess who’s also a witcher, Ciri is far and away one of the best characters in The Witcher 3. She’s pretty great in Gwent as well. In fact, she’s recently become so popular that CD Projekt Red has decided to nerf her in the game’s latest update.
There are a lot of terrible sex scenes in mainstream games. There are also a handful of good ones, as seen in games like The Witcher 3. But even in that game’s case, creating believable sex scenes wasn’t easy. Video game technology is great if you want characters to make war; not so much if you want them to make love.
This week the Midwinter Update for Gwent, CD Projeckt Red’s card game based off The Witcher 3, finally went live. Gwent, which is still in beta, gets patched pretty regularly, but not like this. Popular cards have seen their abilities simplified and weakened, and text descriptions that added flavor to the game have…
When the Xbox One X launched in November, players discovered the console could run a completely un-patched disc version of The Witcher 3 at 60 frames per second. The Xbox One X update for the game dropped today, giving players a choice of 60 FPS performance or 30 FPS at 4K.
I’ve had my eye on Seven: The Days Long Gone since the moment I heard the words “isometric open-world stealth RPG from ex-Witcher developers.” It sounded like a game made just for me. Unfortunately, while Seven has a cool setting and some fun ideas, the glue that holds it all together is sloppily applied.
Geralt’s trip from the pages of Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski’s novels to the games we know today was not an easy one.
The Witcher series is 10 years old this month, and to mark the occasion CD Projekt Red released this teary lil’ clip.
