The mod, which was created by WitcherSeb, takes direct inspiration from Henry Cavill’s portrayal of Geralt from the Netflix show, The Witcher, and lets the player dress the protagonist in the same armour the actor wears.
Not only has the modder created a file that lets players showcase Cavill’s Witcher black armour, medallion, and outfit from season one episode one of the Netflix show, a separate mod also transforms Geralt’s in-game model to make him look like the actor.
This mod is WitcherSeb’s most endorsed piece of work on NexusMods and captures Cavill’s likeness, complete with the same half-up, half-down hairstyle. The mod also retextures Geralt’s body, making his skin look slightly more realistic.
WitcherSeb has also been working on a number of other Witcher mods, including one that transforms Yennefer of Vengerberg into Anya Chalotra – the actress who portrays the sorceress in the Netflix show – as well as a Ciri mod, which makes Geralt’s adopted daughter look like Freya Allen.
The DLC will be free, and cover art revealed for the next-gen update mentions that it will include “extra items inspired by the Netflix series”. The free DLC will not be exclusive to the new-gen version and will be available on all platforms – including the PS4, PC, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
