The Witcher 3: Next Gen gets stunning free Netflix update

The Witcher 3: Next Gen gets stunning free Netflix update

This incredible Netflix inspired The Witcher mod is free to download.

Don’t get me wrong, Geralt of Rivia is already quite the handsome man in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt but compared to Henry Cavill? There’s no competition. For those who agree, a group of modders has you covered with a Netflix inspired mod.

Our white-haired Witcher is one of the most recognisable figures in gaming. Thanks to his rugged good looks, muscular stature and gravelled voice, it is no surprise that many players spent the majority of their gameplay fawning over him.

However, when Netflix took on The Witcher television adaptation, opinions soon began to change when it was announced that Henry Cavill would take on the role of Geralt of Rivia. As many people’s celebrity crush, this casting was hardly disputed and despite being replaced by Liam Hemsworth in future seasons, many still view Cavill as Geralt himself.

That definitely seems to be the case for a group of modders over on Nexus Mods after working on bringing Cavill’s likeness to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Not only that but other stars such as Freya Allan who plays Ciri and Anya Chalotra who plays Yennefer can also have their likeness replace the original game models.

The mods known as ‘Netflix Ultimate Henry Cavill Variant’ (created by Bjorn18) and ‘Netflix Ciri and Yennefer’ (by UburUbur) are available to download for free on Nexus Mods and simply change the faces of the much-loved characters to match their Netflix counterparts. With a group of talented creators behind the mods, it is clear to see that their hard work has paid off with Geralt of Rivia seamlessly taking on Cavill’s facial structure.

In related news, Cavill recently revealed that he will always pick Yennefer as Geralt’s love interest when playing through The Witcher 3 himself and calls himself “Team Yennefer”. See? I knew I liked him for a reason.
