‘The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’ is a video game that was released in 2015, but has now seen a resurgence in popularity and players since the series ‘The Witcher’ premiered on Netflix. The game broke into Steam’s Top Sellers category for December 2019, during which the game surpassed 93,000 players on Steam (a PC gaming platform).

As is the case with the TV series, The Witcher game is based on the Witcher fantasy novels. The open-world role-playing action game is a sequel to The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings and enjoyed numerous Game of the Year awards and accolades. In the game, players control Geralt of Rivia (the star of the TV series) to fight monsters, explore regions, and track down the ‘Child of Prophecy’.
