The Witcher: Witch's Lament comic series announced

Geralt returns to the world of print

The Witcher franchise's next expansion is closer to its roots. The Witcher was a book before it became a series of games, and now the brand is heading back to print with a new series of comic books.

Dark Horse Comics The Witcher: Witch's Lament, a limited series written by Bartosz Sztybor, the narrative manager and writer for developer CD Projekt Red. The series is drawn by Vanesa R. Del Ray (Scarlet Witch), with colors by Jordie Bellaire (Batman) and letters by Aditya Bidikar. You can see the cover to issue #1 below:(Image Credit: Dark Horse/CD Projekt Red)

The Witcher: Witch's Lament deals with the death of a witch who was burned at the stake. Geralt becomes entangled with the woman when she haunts his dreams, claiming that a bigger conspiracy is behind her murder. Geralt sets out to uncover the mystery, which leads him straight into some serious danger.

The Witcher: Witch's Lament will be four issues long, and the first is set to release on May 26th, 2021.

The Witcher: Old World board game announced, Kickstarter launches May 2021

Something for Geralt to play in his down time

The Witcher's universe is an expansive one, and it's been covered in all sorts of mediums. We're obviously familiar with the video game adaptations, but there's plenty of reading material out there, along with a Netflix projects and more. Now we can add a new board game to that list.

The Witcher: Old World is a board game being worked on by GO ON BOARD, and they'll be launching a Kickstarter campaign to fund the project in the near future. Read all about the board game below.

We’re happy to announce The Witcher: Old World — a new board game set in the world of The Witcher, created in cooperation with GO ON BOARD publishing company and designed by Łukasz Woźniak, author of board games such as Valhalla and Titans.

The Witcher: Old World is intended for 2-5 people and takes place long before times of Geralt of Rivia. Players take on a role of professional monster slayers who recently completed their brutal training in one of the witcher schools: School of Wolf, Viper, Cat, Bear or Griffin. On their adventures across the Continent, young witchers will face difficult choices, take on contracts, battle monsters — and perhaps find themselves brawling with another witcher in order to defend their school’s honor!

The game’s crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter will begin in May 2021 and will offer the community a chance to have a significant impact on the contents of the game, as well as the stories it features. The Witcher: Old World is currently scheduled to be released in April 2022. At this point, the game is planned to be released in English and Polish, but other language versions are being negotiated.

【Product Information】

■Geralt Model Watch

This sleek multifunctional watch is inspired by Geralt of Rivia.

Beautiful patterns are etched into the watch face, taken from the textures on Geralt’s clothing.

The Wolf School insignia sits prominently at 12 o’clock, with five symbols for the magical signs engraved around the bezel.

■Ciri Model Watch

This Ciri-inspired watch’s minute hand is a careful recreation of Ciri’s sword, Zireael.

A small seconds subdial is at 6 o’clock, printed and etched in a design modeled after her in-game belt.

The watch face has been made with a phosphorescent material to keep a luminous glow in the dark, reminiscent of when portals are activated for teleportation.

Standard edition of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt now available on the eShop with "Blood and Wine" & "Hearts of Stone" DLC sold seperately

It's always nice to have options!

Although the "Complete Edition" hasn't gone anywhere, you can now purchase The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt from the eShop without any of the DLC included. Priced at $39.99 USD ($20 less than the Complete Edition), you can also purchase the "Blood and Wine" and "Hearts of Stone" DLC for $19.99 and $9.99 respectively (bringing the total to $69.97, which is $9.98 more than the Complete Edition). It's definitely a better deal to purchase the Complete Edition, but if you aren't interested in any of the DLC, you now have the option to just get the base game. If you decide to get the DLC later, you can always change your mind and pick 'em up for a little bit extra.

Netflix releases a Witcher blooper reel

The goofs and gaffs of Geralt and the gang

The Witcher might be a very serious show, but there's a lot of silliness going on behind the scenes. Sometimes that stems from bloopers while filming. Netflix has put together a small compilation of some of the mistakes from filming the first season, which you can see above.

The writers behind Netflix's The Witcher: Blood Origin revealed

A very talented group

As announced back in July of 2020, Netflix is working on The Witcher: Blood Origin, which is a six-part, live-action limited series. We already knew that Declan de Barra, The Witcher showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, and the author of the books, Andrzej Sapkowski were involved. Now we know who else is stepping in to write the feature.

This feature is going to be penned by The Aaron Stewart-Ahn, Kiersten Van Horne, Alex Meenehan, Tasha Huo, Troy Dangerfield, Tania Lotia, and Pooja Gupta. This is quite the talented group of people, as they've offered their writing skills to shows like Swamp Thing, Carnival Row, Moon Knight, Snowpiercer, Mandy, Iron Fist, and more.

Over on the rumor side of things, we're hearing that Netflix wants to grab Jason Momoa as the lead for this prequel. We'll have to stay tuned to see if that pans out.

German retailer lists "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Light Edition" for Switch

Geralt trims down

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition has been available on Switch for quite some time well, and has sold quite favorably on the platform. It seems there's still an audience for this title, and CD Projekt Red could be looking to reach even more customers in the near future.

German retailer Media Markt has added a listing for "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Light Edition" to their site. The page doesn't give us any info on what makes this version of the game 'Light' versus 'Complete,' but one would guess that it lacks DLC or some other extras. Oddly enough, the price on the Light version is just about the same as the Complete Edition, which most likely means the price is a placeholder.

No word on whether or not this listing is legit yet, but it's something we'll keep an eye out for at other retailers.

Official The Witcher Fine Art Print By Renowned Fantasy Artist Nekro Released

Perfect for the living room

Art gallery Cook and Becker proudly announces the launch of a spectacular commissioned work by Spanish artist Nekro.
