Celebrate the 10th anniversary of The Witcher with this amazing video

I thought I’d finally moved on. I thought I was done with Geralt of Rivia and all of that witchering business. And now I’m sat here, reminiscing about all those adventures.

The series is now 10 years old, and to say thank you – and also one final goodbye to fans – CD Projekt Red has released a wonderful little video that should serve as a more conclusive ending and a final hurrah for Gwynbleidd, The White Wolf.

It does assume in many ways that you’ve finished the latest game and its DLC, so there may be a mild spoiler or two for those of you who haven’t played through Blood and Wine yet. On that note, if you haven’t played through Blood and wine yet, what’s wrong with you?

“Time flies when you’re in great company. Join Geralt of Rivia as he reminisces about the 10 years it’s been since you’ve first joined him on his adventures in The Witcher series of games.”

The first game was released 10 years ago, and it told an amazing story – but had pretty poor combat. That seems to be the thread that’s run through the 10 year old tapestry, as each successive game has gone on to tell bigger, bolder stories – but the combat in The Witcher never quite reached the heights of everything else the series has to offer. Despite that, it’s still one of my favourite series, and I’m once again sad that it’s ended.

It’s a lovely video, and just another example of CDPR just getting its consumers in ways that many other studios don’t.

        fable style, starting as a kid taken away and put through the trial of grasses, assorted witcher shenanigans and the story that leads to the fall of kaer morhen, where the story is based around protecting young Geralt, Lambert etc in a manner similar to Ciri in Witcher 3 and the books.

            Have a squad system, where at level 10 or at certain points in the story, geralt becomes a follower, then further on you get lambert etc.
            Each follower starting at level 1. Makes for a different kind of progression, a bit more JRPG-ish.
            I quite like the idea of having a pet Geralt.
            Also smashing Witcher / Dragon age / mass effect / last of us all together would be awesome.

            Squad fighting purely in witcher wolf school doctrine, while Vesemir has room to improvise / instruct / initiate / expand the doctrine.
            Perhaps even adding another member to the squad from the cat/bear etc schools, with different attack patterns to the Wolf.

            I think the witcher would rock with inter school cooperation and squad tactics. Bear tanking up front, cat for hit & run / ranged tactics, wolf for parrying / dodging and general DPS and Griffen for Spell support.

            Alternatively, what I REALLY want, is a game based on the books.Once Ciri shows up in the books, the story really gets quite interesting and would really make for a great game, with only small amounts of “creative license”
            Maybe even using some of the storylines from the untranslated short stories.
