What you need to know

  • The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is an incredible open-world game for Xbox One and other platforms.

  • You can purchase The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Game of the Year Edition for $35 on Amazon.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is one of the greatest games ever made, and Netflix wants to cash in on the popularity. A few months ago, the streaming giant revealed that it was working on a show inspired by The Witcher series. While we knew that it would feature an original story, we didn't know anything about its production values.

Luckily, that changed today. Some hours ago, the company released a trailer for its The Witcher show. While some gamers might object to lead actor Henry Cavill's out-of-control hair during certain scenes, the overall sense is that it's pretty epic. It seems like topics such as genocide, racism, and other social issues are touched upon in the show. Plus, there are plenty of large-scale battles.

However, the star of the show had to be the final scene. We see Geralt taking on a massive spider. If you've played The Witcher 3, you may recognize where these beasts come from. We can't wait to see where Netflix takes the character. What did you think of the trailer? Let us know.

If you can't wait for Netflix's The Witcher show, you can always buy The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Game of the Year Edition for $35 on Amazon. This package contains the two expansions and numerous add-ons. If you haven't played it, you should buy it immediately because it's a must-have.
