Published: Friday, May 22, 2020Tagged: Gaming, Xbox One

With the recent release of the Witcher Netflix season, there has been a new wave of fans bought to the franchise that may not have been aware of the video games. This is promising to both as the franchise begins to transcend between the realm of mainstream streaming services and console gaming. In this article, we will be looking into the popularity surrounding both the game and the TV show as well as the impact it has had on fans.

The Witcher Netflix Season

The Witcher Game Series

For many, the Witcher franchise has been one of the most popular role-playing adventure games across numerous platforms. It has seen several players throughout the years and has seen the full development of lore across all of its 10 games. With several recognisable characters and spin-offs for you to enjoy, this is one of the best games for you to enjoy either on your own or with friends.

The Immersive World Of The Game

One of the biggest benefits to games such as this is the immersive world of fun. With an entirely immersive experience for those that love the law and the hunting of mystical creatures, you can do no better than this franchise. With a skill set that is also easy to learn, you can enjoy the very best of what this mainstream title has to offer. With a release date for yet another title coming soon, there is plenty for fans to be excited about at this time regardless of whether you have seen this game before.

The popularity of this style of game is no surprise to many as roleplaying titles of all kinds have seen a huge number of downloads and concurrent players. There are several role playing games available on platforms such as Steam as well as Witcher spin-offs for fans to play such as Heroes Rise Of The Legends and Dragon Age: Inquisition, all based on the theme of the Witcher, regardless of the platform you are choosing to play them on. These are all games that provide the fantasy that you need allowing you to dip in and out when you fancy an escape from the real world in your own time.

The Jump From Game Console To Netflix

For those that are a fan of this franchise, the jump from mainstream console to a Netflix series has been somewhat disappointing as there are many differences when comparing the two. However, this is a move for the franchise that could prove highly profitable. With Henry Cavill playing the main character you are seeing a new audience fall in love with the franchise. This is great for the popularity of the games as some who like the program may transition into the gaming universe. Though this is only a select few this can help to bring the game back to mainstream popularity over 10 years on from the release of the original game.

The Differences Between The Netflix Series And The Game

For many one of the biggest problems of the franchise is the lead character. Henry Cavill as a fan of the games himself has admitted that the performance given by Cockle is one that cannot be replaced as it stands s out as one of the best in-game performances to date. However, by being a fan of the games himself. Cavill has bought the essence of the character to the Netflix title. In addition, the Netflix title has bought about some of the characters from the game keeping it as recognisable as possible whilst adding its own special twist.

Another change that has been changed to cater to the Netflix show is the map Andrzej Sapkowski has never endorsed a map of the continent and has left it up to them and to piece together the clues from the games. However, with the Netflix show, there has been a ma put together based off of the box as well as the map alluded to by the fans. This, therefore, represents some inconsistencies with the law and has the potential to upset hardcore fans of the franchise.

With this in mind, this is an exciting time for fans of the franchise as Netflix is set to bring forth a second season in the coming months as well as the release of the 4th Witcher title at this time.
