The Witcher’s Geralt Through The Years, Thanks To One Fan
Geralt of Rivia has become one of the most iconic video game characters of the past 10 or so years. With his signature gravelly voiced directness and veteran candor, players have fallen in love with this video game adaption of Andrzej Sapkowski’s most popular character from the Witcher novels. With Geralt due to appear in Soul Calibur VI and take on the mightiest warriors in fighting game history in October, a recent post on Reddit’s r/gaming showed off just how much Geralt has changed over the years.
User colossusoftrost shared the image below that shows off Geralt as he appears in the first Witcher title, Assassins of Kings, and his maybe final appearance in The Wild Hunt. Check out these striking differences!
Man, what a difference a couple years makes right? While each Witcher game is pretty distinct in its visual fidelity, there are some noticeable improvements to Geralt’s physique and characterization as well. One of the best improvements definitely has to be his face. Geralt kind of looks like an aged up Fabio impersonator in the original 2007 title and his frame is so dang scrawny relative to 2015 Geralt it’s almost shocking to think they’re supposed to be the same guy.
Hopefully, Netflix isn’t going with this look for our roguishly handsome hero and goes with a more bulky build for Geralt, which shouldn’t be too hard. I mean, when you have Henry Cavill as your lead character the chances of him being a hunk are about as close as you can get to 100%.
Pretty stark evolution for our old buddy Geralt eh? Be sure to follow us on Twitter for all other Witcher-related happenings and check out some other cool stories from Don’t Feed The Gamers
