Toss a coin to your Witcher in the latest mod for the original The Witcher game.
The Witcher on Netflix has already made an impact on its gaming counterpart. Thanks to modding magic, you can play The Witcher 3 on PC with a Henry Cavill-faced Geralt. But what about the true star of the streaming series? Which, of course, is the song “Toss A Coin to Your Witcher” sung by Jaskier in the show.
One modder has taken it upon themself to bring the episode-stealing scene to life in the original game. The “Toss A Coin to Your Witcher Cutscene” mod introduces the ballad to The Witcher, along with additional dialogue options with its balladeer Dandelion (as Jaskier is known in the game series). A version is currently in the works for The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings.
“I’m also planning a second cutscene with another song from the Netflix series The Witcher, as well as alternative cutscenes with a song from Alzur’s Legacy,” writes modder hub997. Check out the mod in action below:
The Witcher Netflix show has caused a massive boost to The Witcher 3’s numbers on Steam. Two days after the show dropped, Wild Hunt broke its previous concurrent player record on Steam, climbing to just above 48,000 players. This previous figure was achieved at the game’s launch.
The game continued to gain more and more players, setting a new peak concurrent of nearly 102,000 players, comfortably landing it in Steam’s top five, alongside behemoths like PUBG, Dota 2 and GTA 5.
