Brief outline of the game

Game of the Year Edition of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, compiling DLC content for the game and expansions: ‘Hearts of Stone’ and ‘Blood and Wine’. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a story-driven, open world game, following Geralt of Rivia, a professional monster slayer. The expansions take Geralt to No Man’s Land, lured by a bounty on a sewer monster, and the lands of Toussaint, where a dark secret lies beneath the beautiful exterior.

Content specific issues

The game features frequent strong violence, occasional scenes of violence against vulnerable characters and frequent strong language. Geralt is able to dismember, decapitate, disembowel and bisect his enemies during gameplay combat. Notable scenes of strong violence include, but are not limited to, a raven burrowing into a man’s eye socket and bursting from the back of his shattered skull and a man’s face melting and sizzling after being struck by a fire spell. Violence against vulnerable and defenceless persons includes people being bound to and burnt at the stake, and a child being fed upon by a vampire. The word ‘fuck’ is used frequently and ‘cunt’ is used several times.

Other issues

Geralt is featured in sex scenes with several different women; the couples’ genitals are not visible during intercourse, though there are other moments of full nudity.
