There’s no faffing around here, is there? It quickly sums up what The Witcher is all about. There’s a contract out on a monster, a person who isn’t what they seem, a bit of raunchiness and then a big battle with potions, swords and magic. Then we all get to feel a little bit sad because Geralt lives in an oppressively miserable world.

Also, it’s very pretty in that everything is gloomy and oh god there’s no hope left kind of way.

The Witcher 3 launches on May 19th.
