While the Witcher Netflix series is very popular, particularly in its first season, it has never been flawless, and possibly the worst element of the show is coming to The Witcher 3 as part of its next-gen upgrade. Indeed, CDPR has produced a video highlighting all of The Witcher 3’s upgrades on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X.
However, some Nilfgaard troops have been observed wearing the wrinkled, despised costumes featured in the episode. The games’ Nilfgaard armour has a distinctive black and metallic aesthetic, but the show utilised something wrinkled and almost nasty to look at. Even when showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich noted that the crew wanted something that could seem mass-produced owing to the size of the Nilfgaarddian army, as well as something appropriate for warfare, this Nilfgaard armour sparked criticism for the Witcher Netflix series. On the one hand, this makes logic, but it doesn’t imply that everyone has to be pleased about it.
It’s no news that The Witcher 3 will have Netflix-inspired DLC, although some may have overlooked it. After all, the Cyberpunk: Edgerunners DLC arrived considerably sooner in Cyberpunk 2077. However, one Nilfgaard soldier in the video is certainly wearing this armour, as discovered by Push Square. It’s unclear how this would operate, since it might be a permanent modification to the game (which seems improbable) or an in-game option similar to different outfits. In any case, considering how well this armour was welcomed by fans, it’s an unexpected inclusion. The good news is that the clip also shows a new armour set for Geralt of Rivia in The Witcher 3.
It’s a basic Netflix-inspired set of armour for Geralt, rather than Nilfgaard’s wrinkled armour. Fans will have to wait and see how this works, and it should be noted that CDPR has said that patch details for the update would be released closer to the release date.
Fans will most likely learn how to use this costume there. For the most part, if fans who despised this Nilfgaard armour can disregard it, everything should be fine. After all, this update is more than just a piece of armour, and all of the next-gen changes coming to The Witcher 3 have generated a lot of buzz in recent months. If it performs better, its detractors will most likely forgive it.
