Geralt’s rocking leather abs in The Witcher season 2

Netflix have shared a wee look at Geralt in the second season of The Witcher, and he's certainly going hard on black leather. Even got leather pecs and leather abs this time. No leather nips, mind. While the live-action series is based primarily on the books, I hope this is the game's influence being felt more, and Geralt will be forever swapping out his swords…

Netflix’s Witcher now has a making-of documentary

The second series of the Netflix's The Witcher show is still a way away, especially after production was interrupted by the pandemic, but Netflix do have a wee bit more to tide folks over. Today they released a half-hour behind-the-scenes documentary with cast and crew talking about the making of the show, fittingly titled Making The Witcher. It's not hugely enlightening but does have lots…

Netflix’s The Witcher: Blood Origin is a prequel series set 1200 years before Geralt

Here's a nice one for The Witcher fans on this lovely summer afternoon - Netflix have announced they're making a prequel series to teach us all about the beginnings of those mysterious, white-haired monster hunters. Named The Witcher: Blood Origins, it'll be set 1200 years prior to dear old Geralt Of Rivia's story, and will tell us the tale of how "the very first Witcher…

Cyberpunk 2077 Netflix anime series announced, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners

During today's Night City Wire stream, CD Projekt Red announced Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, an anime series spun off from Cyberpunk 2077. Coming to Netflix in 2022, it's being made by Trigger, the Japanese animation studio known for Kill La Kill and Little Witch Academia. Given the success of Netflix's The Witcher, yeah, I'm not surprised.

Look for a nod to noted Total Warhammer 2 fan Henry Cavill in its next DLC

When he's not playing everyone's favourite Rivia man in Netflix's The Witcher, Henry Cavill likes to chill out with some Total War: Warhammer 2. It's a fact that hasn't gone unnoticed by Creative Assembly, either. They've only gone and put a nod to him in the game's upcoming DLC, The Warden & The Paunch. And there's even a Witcher reference thrown in there for good…

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…

Someone made a tool that plays the Overwatch piano, so naturally I used it to play Toss A Coin To Your Witcher

Overwatch's Workshop has birthed so many weird and wonderful game modes, and I hate to admit I've not messed around with it as much I'd like to. I did today though, because I discovered a brilliant Workshop tool that lets you play (almost) any song you like on the piano on the Paris map. All you need are some midi files and a dream. And…

The Witcher 3’s colorful world influenced the look of Netflix’s show

Netflix's own Witcher TV show is, as we know, based on ye olde novels by Andrzej Sapkowski and not the RPG trilogy by CD Project Red. But we've all seen the bathtub scene, yeah? So we know there's some of the video game DNA in the small screen version of Geralt's adventures if you know where to look. Showrunner Lauren Hissrich says that it's not…

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…

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…

The press release says it'll be based on "the globally popular fantasy saga from Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski", with only passing mention of the games. As for what it'll be about, the producers Sean Daniel and Jason Brown (of The Expanse) have this to say:"The Witcher stories follow an unconventional family that comes together to fight…
