Witcher 1’s Introduction Recreated in Witcher 3

Games

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt introduced a lot of people to the Witcher universe for the first time, but the series’ history extends much further back. The Witcher just turned 10 years old, and to celebrate the game’s birthday, one modder decided to build an homage to the game using The Witcher 3’s much-improved engine.

Nexusmods user erxv recreated the opening act of the original game in The Witcher 3, and the results are pretty incredible. In the video embedded above, we take a closer look at how the mod makes over the memorable prologue.

It helps that The Witcher 3 returns to so many of the same places that the original game featured. Both games feature the Kaer Morhen fortress, after all, and they look pretty similar–even though many years have passed when The Witcher 3 opens. Erxv also did a good job of bringing in the original audio and timing the animations correctly.

You can download the mod here (be careful, as always, downloading user-created mods). If you haven’t played the original game in its entirety yet, you should give it a try: you can get the Enhanced Edition for $1.49 right now, and it’s a great game. When it first launched, GameSpot gave it an 8.5/10.
