If you have been wanting on the teaser picture for The Witcher 4 and considering, “That’s not like any Witcher medallion I know,” then you definately have been proper on the cash – writer CD Projekt has revealed that it has created an entire new Witcher faculty for the brand new sport.
We nonetheless know little or no about The Witcher 4 past the truth that it is in lively growth. CD Projekt put out a brief announcement earlier this week confirming the open-world PRG was within the works and that the crew had swapped from its personal REDengine to Unreal Engine 5. Beyond that, all we have now to go on is the teaser picture – a Witcher medallion half-covered in snow.
While the medallion seems to be just like the one we have come to know throughout The Witcher trilogy, that of the School of the Wolf, it’s a narrower face with pointier ears.
Fans weren’t positive in the event that they have been taking a look at a redesigned medallion, both of the School of the Wolf, one other canon Witcher School, or a wholly new medallion.
Our personal Jessica Weatherbed referred to as it, saying that not solely was it a brand new medallion, however that it will be a wholly new faculty that did not function within the video games, books, or tv sequence.
Yea, I’m fairly satisfied it is a new Witcher faculty. Possibly a prequel set within the Second age of Witchers. Not e-book canon in fact, however then, non of the video games are both. pic.twitter.com/eC3gt2Em2tMarch 21, 2022
“I can confirm that the medallion is, in fact, shaped after a lynx,” world communication director Robert Malinowski informed Eurogamer.
However, whereas the School of the Lynx would not seem in official Witcher fiction, there are tales in regards to the faculty elsewhere on the web – on a Witcher fan fiction wiki.
On the fan wiki, the School of the Lynx kinds after the School of the Wolf dissolves. Founded by the surviving members – together with Geralt – the college finally departs its homeland and explores the Western continent. However, keep in mind that that is all fan-fiction and unlikely to be just like the story that CD Projekt is working up for its new RPG. For a begin, Geralt could not even function within the new sport. Indeed, the developer was speaking about having a unique protagonist for future video games.
Also, we have now no ensures that the brand new Witcher sport is ready after the occasions of the unique Witcher trilogy. To keep away from the difficulties of selecting which doable ending to the video games is canon, CD Projekt could make the brand new sport a prequel to the previous trilogy.
While we’re nonetheless possible years away from enjoying The Witcher 4, we now know a little bit extra in regards to the world that CD Projekt is growing.
