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.

Andy covers the day-to-day happenings in the big, wide world of PC gaming—the stuff we call "news." In his off hours, he wishes he had time to play the 80-hour RPGs and immersive sims he used to love so much.
