This hardcore following, along with a more polished and ambitious sequel - The Witcher 2: Assassin's of Kings - helped catapult the series into substantially more limelight and even game of the year talk in 2011. Because who doesn't want Geralt speaking to you, the player?
CD Projekt Red have put together a special in-universe video in celebration of 10 years of The Witcher.
"Been through hell and high water, you and me".
Starting with the arrival of Ciri, we see her joining a bunch of well-known characters that are assembled to celebrate Geralt's birthday.
In addition to its brilliant gameplay, attractive graphics, and Gwent, the Witcher 3 has some of the best-written characters ever to appear in a video game, especially Geralt, who is by no means a flawless hero. Of course we saw a couple of different projects like Gwent stand alone version and an adventure game. Priscilla is Dandelion's current love interest who makes an appearance in The Witcher 3 for the first time.
"The Witcher" series will long be remembered as one of the best RPG gaming experiences.
The video's YouTube comments section reflects the effect Witcher 3 had on many people. The developers at CD Projekt Red gave fans of the series a fan service video of Geralt with numerous main and side characters from the third game at a party, speaking to the players directly, as well as a behind-the-scenes video of the making of "The Wild Hunt" which is hilarious.
