The Witcher trailer is here

As promised, although a little later in the day than I expected, the first full trailer for The Witcher series on Netflix has arrived. 

I'll admit that I'm more impressed than I expected to be. Henry looks right, he sounds right, and the production values look like they've got some real budget behind them. And bathtub Geralt! That's a nice touch.

I don't know if a book adaptation will have the same resonance with fans who are only familiar with the games, but right now I'm feeling pretty good about its prospects.

The trailer also gives us a confirmed release date of December 20. Mark the date.

Andy has been gaming on PCs from the very beginning, starting as a youngster with text adventures and primitive action games on a cassette-based TRS80. From there he graduated to the glory days of Sierra Online adventures and Microprose sims, ran a local BBS, learned how to build PCs, and developed a longstanding love of RPGs, immersive sims, and shooters. He began writing videogame news in 2007 for The Escapist and somehow managed to avoid getting fired until 2014, when he joined the storied ranks of PC Gamer. He covers all aspects of the industry, from new game announcements and patch notes to legal disputes, Twitch beefs, esports, and Henry Cavill. Lots of Henry Cavill.
