The Witcher series hype train is real, and I am firmly on board. CD PROJEKT RED knocked everyone’s socks off with The Witcher 3 when it released in May 2015, and it quickly cemented its place as the greatest RPG of this year, if not of all time (oh yeah, Fallout, I went there).
With how much praise they’ve received from critics and players alike, it must be crazy in the CD PROJEKT RED camp right now as they work on The Witcher 3’s final expansion, Blood and Wine. Konrad Tomaszkiewicz, Game Director at CD PROJEKT RED, had this to say about just how crazy of a year it’s been:
“This year was really epic for the entire crew behind The Witcher. We launched Wild Hunt, the RPG we’ve been working on for so long, then we’ve gone above and beyond to give gamers as many free DLC as we could, and then released Hearts of Stone, which – judging from player feedback – took the game even further. And we innovated all along the way — if you compare Wild Hunt to our previous game, almost every element was improved or changed. Now we’re working on Blood and Wine, the final expansion for Wild Hunt which we will launch in 2016. To thank everyone for being with us this whole time, we’ve prepared something special — enjoy the Epic Trailer!”
And since I’m sure that trailer got your fingers twitching to slay some Nekkers, here’s your chance to grab the entire Witcher series on the cheap (as if you haven’t already). Good Old Games is having a huge sale on the entire series, so until Nov 29th 2015, you can pick up The Witcher 1 & 2 at 85% off, and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt at 50% off.
