The Witcher is highly revered partly because of the intricate narrative it weaves. It’s a delightful combination of political intrigue and high fantasy, not too dissimilar to something like Game of Thrones. The story the trilogy of games has been crafting is coming to a head next month – so it seems like the perfect time for a little recap, no?
But how do you catch up on such a complicated tale without actually experiencing it yourself? With this handy little infographic an avid fan created, that’s how. Although it’s not from CD Project Red officially, I bet they’d have a hard time coming up with a more thorough (yet extremely concise) version of events – which sets the stage perfectly for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt next month.
CD Project Red have expressed numerous times that The Witcher 3, despite being the final game, is actually a great starting point for fans who may have missed out on the previous two. Considering their platform exclusivity (the first Witcher is still PC only), that’s a pretty good thing – but there’s still a lot of lore that might fly over your head. This recap does a great job of filling in the important gaps though – so that you can tell your Nilfgaardians apart from your spectral Wild Hunters.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is out for PS4, Xbox One and PC on May 19th. It’s looking really, really good too.
