And then Geralt lived happily ever after

Few witchers live to have a happy ending but shucks, our lad Geralt has done well for himself. With the tenth birthday of The Witcher games nearing (end of October), a new video from developers CD Projekt Red shows him having a big old knees-up with his mates and loved ones. He is my favourite of all tired old digital men and has been through…

Gwent introduces Thronebreaker story campaign

The singleplayer campaign of a free-to-play collectible card game is an unlikely item of interest, given that they're largely there to train players up for competitive play, but I am quite keen to see what's up with the story in Gwent [official site]. The campaign in the spin-off standalone version of The Witcher 3's fun minigame has folks who did heavy lifting on TW3's story,…

The Witcher: Colour in Geralt-in-the-bath with real pencils

The Witcher franchise is now getting an adult colouring book. It's adult in two senses - one is the sense of colouring books aimed at adults as a relaxation method being a rising trend in the last few years and the other is the sense where you get a picture of Geralt in the nuddy in that tub to colour in. His witcher junk is…

CD Projekt Red blackmailed with Cyberpunk 2077 files

Witcher developer CD Projekt Red have been threatened by an unknown person with the release of design documents about their upcoming RPG, Cyberpunk 2077, unless a ransom is met, the company have said. We don’t know the exact number behind that ransom but CD Projekt have rejected them anyway, and have asked people to “avoid any information” not coming from them directly.

The Witcher’s fave card game, Gwent, is now in open beta

Drizzle-soaked Welsh county and card game of tavern scoundrels, Gwent [official site], is now in open beta. Originally an in-game pastime from The Witcher 3, developers CD Projekt RED are casting it out into the world to see if it can survive on its own with naught but a pair of free-to-play clogs. It involves pitting your fightcards against the enemy’s fightcards on a wooden…

Gwent open beta begins next Wednesday

Oh Witcherful day! A Netflix show based on the original books is in the works, we heard this morning, and this afternoon game developers CD Projekt RED announced that Gwent: The Witcher Card Game [official site] will enter open beta on May 24th. That's next Wednesday! Gwent is, of course, a standalone, free-to-play spin-off of the card battle game CD Projekt made within The Witcher…

Hex the planet! CD Projekt RED old forum hacked

CD Projekt RED, the makers of The Witcher, are warning that unknown naughty people gained access to an old forum database of theirs in March 2016. RED say passwords were stored in a way that should keep them obscured but do say, just to be safe, that if you used that same password on other sites you should probably change it. (You know better than…

CD Projekt Red given loads of money, researching seamless multiplayer

They say 'tis the season for giving, and it looks like CD Projekt Red has been allowed to open one of their presents a few days before December 25: a cash bounty from the Polish government to the tune of 30 million zloty (that's $7 million US dollars or £5.6 million Queen's megapounds), according to a report from WCCFTech.

Deal Me In: Witcher’s Gwent Standalone Hits Closed Beta

Oh sure, Pokémon Go players may be pests, hanging around congested pavements and getting in the way, but they've nothing on Gwent players. Imagine if they asked you - all of them asked you - if you had any Gwent cards to sell and they bugged you for battles. Insufferable. NPCs in The Witcher 3 must've groaned every time they saw Geralt wandering the streets,…

Witcher 3 Game Of The Year Edition Brings New Patch

"Wait for the Game of the Year Edition," they tell you, tapping their nose conspiratorially. "Never pay a milliner - you can restore your hat by felting your navel fluff," they hiss. "And remember to hang fennel above your door to ward off witches." I'm not sure how useful the GotY tip is now, given that games and their DLC season passes go on sale…

How About A Round Of Gwent? But Not Til October

The breakout star of The Witcher 3 was in-world card game Gwent [official site], which proved so beloved that a full, free-to-play standalone spin-off was greenlit. It includes, of course, the all-important multiplayer mode, which The Witcher 3's strictly vs AI version lacked. Our Adam declared nu-Gwent to be "one of the best games at E3" when he had a fiddle with an early build…

Rumour: The Witcher’s Gwent Becomes Own Game

You'll never guess what Ian Video Games heard down at the trademark and patent office! Oh, yes, of course someone said "This is the daftest idea I've ever heard", you're right there. His patent does make a certain sort of sense if you think about it, though. Inevitably some Frankenstein will make a perpetual motion machine by strapping buttered toast to a cat and hurling…

Collect ‘Em All: The Witcher 3 Adding Gwent Card Finder

Yes, yes the Blood & Wine expansion sounds great, but here's the really exciting thing coming to The Witcher 3 [official site] next week: a magical book which tells Geralt where to find every Gwent card. A treasure worth more than any gem! Oh, yeah, and I guess patch 1.20 will improve the interface and add an option to enable difficulty upscaling if folks want…

Headbang to a Rockin’ Witcher 3: Blood and Wine Trailer

Blood and Wine, the upcoming final expansion to The Witcher 3 [official site], is due out May 31 and to get your blood pumping CD Projekt Red released this trailer showing off lots of story and dialogue. And because there's nothing more metal than having a vampire bite your neck, CDPR went ahead and set the whole thing to a bumping alternative rock song because…

CDP: ‘There Won’t Be Any Witcher 4 Any Time Soon’

Chinny-reckon! Only superhero movies and Star Wars announce sequels years in advance. Everyone else pretends nope, there's just this one thing we're doing right now and you'll have to wait to find out if there'll ever be another. And so it is that CD Projekt Red are protesting that they have no current plans for a fourth Witcher game, claiming that the upcoming Blood &…

"THE LAND OF WINE IS DRENCHED IN BLOOD" shout CD Projekt RED as they announce that the second The Witcher 3 [official site] expansion, named Blood and Wine, will launch on May 31st. Yeah, you like to think you'd stick to white wine or clear spirits to be safe but man, stop being such a baby: just drink that blooded wine; we're all doing it.…

Bughunt: The Witcher 3 Rolls Out Patch 1.12

The Witcher 3 [official site] is jetting off to Toussaint with its second expansion this year, but it's always important to tidy up before you go on holiday. Awfully grim to come home to mess and clutter. Spending your first night back in an unmade, sweaty bed is a miserable end to things. So developers CD Projekt RED have put together another patch for TW3…

Witcher 3 Expansion Screens Reveal La Belle Toussaint

The first expansion for The Witcher 3 [official site], Hearts of Stone, let Geralt into new areas of the game's map (and is pretty great, says Cobbo). Expansion number two, Blood and Wine, will be a larger affair visiting a whole new area of the Witching world, the France-y Toussaint. And what does Toussaint look like? A lovely place for your summer hols, going by…
