From the creators of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt comes a brand new tale set in the brutal and twisted universe of witcher Geralt of Rivia.
The world stands on the verge of chaos, as the tensions between the power-hungry Nilfgaardian Empire and proud Northern Realms grow. Facing an imminent invasion, Meve — war-veteran Queen of Lyria and Rivia — is forced to once again enter the warpath, and set out on a dark journey of destruction and revenge.
If you’re on PC, it’s important to note that it won’t be available through Steam but instead through GOG.
CD Projekt Red has stated that The Witcher is one of the franchises they’ll continue to grow alongside the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077. Presumably they’ll continue to release smaller games like this in addition to their larger titles.
