If you absolutely cannot wait for The Witcher Netflix series, you can mod lead actor Henry Cavill’s face into The Witcher 3 to get a feel for Geralt as portrayed by the former Superman actor.
Created by Adnan4444 on NexusMods (via Gamespot – ta!), the modification places a remarkably good rendition of Cavill’s facial structure and features over Geralt’s usual brooding scowl. The packs comes with a number of alterations that gamify the depiction on the show, including body hair and face textures “for all in-game occasions”. Toxicity is included also, but the full black-eyed look isn’t done just yet.
Adnan intends to really branch out over the next weeks and months to make a Henry Cavill-Witcher available for any preference “with scars, dirt, brown hair with blue eyes etc.” They then list a number of other mods that can be used in tandem, such as alternative hair-styles, amulets, a fix for Geralt’s beard with the new uber-chiseled jawline and a set of steroid builds if the current body-shape isn’t buff enough for you.
As we get closer to the series’ late-2019 release date, we can expect more mods like this to come out of the woodwork. The Witcher 3 is a beloved, magnificent game, and going by the first trailer the Netflix show is to be a wonderful adaptation of the source material from author Andrzej Sapkowski. Modders will be keen to take all the coolest visual aspects and put them into the game.
The show is still without a definitive release schedule, but at least we can get a good head-start on Henry Cavill’s adventures in Rivia.
