The Witcher games are going cheap in the anniversary sales

If a Netflix show and years of people going on about it have finally convinced you to consider giving The Witcher a go, good news: to celebrate the fifth birthday of The Witcher 3, the whole series is on sale. Both Steam and GOG have big Witcher sales, including the whole RPG series plus various spin-offs. £10 for The Witcher 3 and both expansions is…

The butcher is back in this new The Witcher custom story

Well well, it's not every day (or year) that you see a new custom story mod for The Witcher. Yes, the original Witcher with the clunky combat and clunkier menus and questionable voice acting that is still pretty enjoyable despite all that. This new adventure is made in The Witcher 1 but takes place after the events of The Witcher 3. Geralt finds his way…

GOG’s Spring sale is now on, with lots of free Witcher goodies

GOG's Spring sale begins today, and there are lots of free Witcher goodies up for grabs to kick things off. Alas, The Witcher games themselves aren't free as part of the goodie pack (although they're all heavily discounted as part of GOG's Witcher Universe Collection bundle), but it does include lots of Witcher soundtracks, comics, art, wallpapers and a video of some Witcher music being…

The Toss A Coin To Your Witcher song took about 10 minutes to write

I cannot believe that that damn song from the Netflix Witcher series only took 10 minutes to write. When Toss A Coin To Your Witcher was thrust upon us by Jaskier just before Christmas, I was not prepared for how catchy the damn thing would be. And neither were the Netflix show's creators, apparently, as the idea for the song came to co-executive producer Jenny…

Netflix created an interactive timeline for The Witcher and now I understand what’s actually going on

I'm going to level with you, I'm extremely late to the party with The Witcher. I never played the games or read the books, so the Netflix series is very much my entry point to all of its extensive lore. And from what I've seen so far, it demands a fair bit of prior knowledge to truly understand what's going on. It's good then that…

RPS Asks: Which Witcher should Netflix Witcher watchers play?

If someone enjoyed Netflix's live-action Witcher series and it made them want to try the games, where should they start? Following the show's debut in December, I've had pals who sorta fell out of games pop up asking that to me, some sort of professional opinion-haver. Should they start at the beginning of CD Projekt Red's series? Skip to the end? Are the older games…

The Toss A Coin To Your Witcher song has been modded into The Witcher 1, naturally

Since Netflix's Witcher series was released last month, there's one particular part of the show that has followed me around the internet like a certain very persistent bard. Jaskier (who you know as Dandelion in CD Projekt RED's Witcher games) sings a silly song at the end of episode two about Geralt's exploits. The lyrics are, frankly, corny. It is not a masterpiece. But boy…

CD Projekt Red gain “new rights” in agreement with The Witcher author

CD Projekt Red announced today that they have reached a new agreement with the author of The Witcher novels, Andrzej Sapkowski. The announcement is short and light on detail but is aptly timed to suggest new Witcher-related projects are in the works at the Polish games studio.

If you're not doing any holiday prep this weekend you can tuck in and watch all eight episodes starring Henry Cavill and co right now.

If Netflix’s Witcher isn’t based on the games, why that shot of Geralt in the bath?

The upcoming Netflix show ​The Witcher is not based on the games, Netflix insist, but rather the same Andrzej Sapkowski books that inspired the games. That doesn't mean that they're not influenced by the games, mind. I suspect they'd never be making this if CD Projekt Red hadn't made Geralt a star. Netflix today released a trailer announcing a December 20th launch date, and the…

Netflix’s first trailer for The Witcher shows off sword fights and magic

Everyone’s old Witcher pal Geralt of Rivia is approaching his Netflix debut, and a trailer premiered at San Diego Comic-Con is here to prove it. Tune in for a tale of genocide, some glimpses at familiar characters and monsters, and an impossibly square-jawed Henry Cavill as Geralt. (You know, him off the telly. You might’ve seen him in The Tudors, or bigging it up on…

See Henry Cavill in costume as Geralt for Netflix’s Witcher

There are still many questions around Netflix's upcoming live-action adaptation of The Witcher--Will it be any good? Will Geralt be in that tub? Can I import my save into the telly? Is Geralt in the tub in every episode? Will he sack off quests to play Gwent down the pub? Does Geralt count as being in the tub in every episode if that's just in…

Gwent’s singleplayer mode goes standalone as Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales

Announced during an otherwise dull financial results conference streamed on Twitch, CD Projekt Red announced a minor surprise today. Their long-awaited Gwent singleplayer campaign has grown into a separate and self-contained game all of its own. Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales is its new, Gwent-free name, and while obviously related to the free-to-play card game, the company are calling it a lengthy RPG in its own…

Geralt’s first outing as The Witcher is free on GOG

If you've played through The Witcher 2 and The Witcher 3, you've spent hundreds of hours with the character of Geralt of Rivia. But have you ever taken the time to go back to the beginning? I... absolutely have not. But I played enough Witcher over the years to have encountered people and quests from the first title that I had to fill in via…

See Geralt cut into Soul Calibur VI

As rumoured and expected, Geralt of Rivia will indeed cross over into Soul Calibur VI. Everyone's seemingly known for ages that the monster-hunting hero The Witcher would appear in the upcoming fighting game sequel, but now it's official. One of my main interests in life is hearing Geralt talk in a weary voice so you betcha I'm up for throwing him through a portal into…

Soon, Voldo and Geralt will meet outside my dreams

CD Projekt Red don't have to do much to capture the internet's attention. Remember when they beeped? That was a good day.Today is also a good day. No beeps or boops or any other sound effects have emerged from the witchy cyberpunkers, but a new chronicle of Geralt's adventures has appeared on the official Witcher twitter feed. "Kaer Morhen’s old stones have witnessed many battles...…

Witcher 3 mod remakes the first game’s prologue in fancy modern ways

A new mod for The Witcher 3 recreates the first game's prologue chapter, sending us back with all the bells and whistles of the modern day. As the RPG series kept revisiting characters across games and across the years, my memories of the first game kept updating with the latest game's looks. Watching the mod's trailer contrasting the original and remake, oh wow, nope, it…

The Witcher turns 10 years old and celebrates with a big sale

Somehow, our lad Geralt's video game adventures have turned ten years old this week. That's ten years of slaying monsters as the silver fox with cat-eyes. Ten years of werewolves, dragons, unicorns, romances and politics, usually all at the same time. Ten years of articles debating how much sex in a video game constitutes too much.To celebrate the series' tenth anniversary, you can pick up…

A cancelled Witcher game of the 90s had tank controls

Here’s some interesting trivia for fans of emotionally stunted pest-control men. Footage of a long-cancelled Witcher game has surfaced thanks to some of the Polish developers who worked on the would-be adventure RPG back in the late 90s. This was before CD Projekt Red started work on their own version of The Witcher, and shows the white-haired swordsman we'd come to recognise as Geralt waddling…

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…
