“The World of the Witcher is really unique, as it’s the first successful attempt of creating such a comprehensive compendium about the Witcher series of games and beyond,” said Rafał Jaki, Franchise Director, CD PROJEKT RED. “I’m sure gamers and fans of the universum will have tons of fun reading it,” added Jaki.
This hardbound compendium contains “never before published original art from each Witcher game” as well as information on the characters, locations, monsters, and weapons that make this series so unique.
