Geralt tells it straight in new Witcher 3 television ad

Witcher 3

The television ad for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is out, and while it's very brief, it also very handily nails the Witcher mystique, and why the series is so attractive to me and a great many other RPG fans.

"This world doesn't need a hero," the grizzled Geralt growls. "It needs a professional." And then, POW! He murders a gryphon. I'm willing to bet he introduced himself to the distressed damsel afterward, too. That's a professional, and a hero.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is out on May 19.

As lead news writer during ‘merican hours, Andy covers the day-to-day events that keep PC gaming so interesting, exciting, and occasionally maddening. He’s fond of RPGs, FPSs, dungeons, Myst, and the glorious irony of his parents buying him a TRS-80 instead of an Atari so he wouldn't end up wasting his life on videogames.
