About The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is an action RPG developed by CD Projekt Red. The game received universal acclaim and became the winner of billions of Game of the Year awards, probably. Play as Geralt, one of very few Witchers (monster hunters with supernatural powers) inhabiting a world described as “Skyrim and Game of Thrones.” During the game, Geralt must hunt for his missing adoptive daughter Ciri and also be a good dad. However, you will probably spend most of your time chatting up the locals, hunting monsters, and playing the card game called Gwent. Plus, that’s only before you get in to its two considerably deep expansions.
