Say no to Duran Duran

The Witcher 3 is coming. Say no to drugs. Those aren’t related statements – but if you’ve been sipping the Witcher 3 Kool-aid, you likely want to know everything there is to know about the latest exploits of the ashen-haired, demon-slaying Witcher, Geralt of Rivia. Here then, are all of the game’s achievements (and probably trophies), here for your spoiler-filled pleasure.

As you’d imagine, you can expect a great number of spoilers tucked in amongst these achievements, so if you want to go in to the game with fresh eyes and a clean mind, then you may want to avoid reading through them.

What I will say though, is that the many, many achievements (52 of em!) show there’s a healthy amount of things to do in the game, with a number of quests, side quests, and other tasks ready to eat up all of your free time. The Witcher 3 is coming. Say no to Durum Wheat pasta.

    Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
