'The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt' (ALL) Cosplay Competition

Marking the final installment in the action RPG trilogy, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt combines decision-based storytelling flair with a living open world larger than any other in modern RPG history.

Open-world, free-roaming exploration is an adventure in itself as the player will gallop through war-ravaged lands, sail misty waters and track down dangerous beasts for money. An improved combat system will allow players to feel like a real monster-hunter, a witcher who uses his superior senses and fighting skills to survive in a dark fantasy world--while he embarks on a quest to save his loved ones. The new core mechanics of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt immerse the player in the experience completely, with no Quick Time Events, only intuitive RPG gameplay.

Making use of the same remarkable art direction from The Witcher 2 combined with the support of in-house technology--the recently-announced RPG-oriented REDengine 3--The Witcher 3 will take full advantage of the technical capabilities of modern hardware and will set a new standard for RPG visuals.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is the final episode of the RPG series and the last part of the legend of Geralt of Rivia.

Without a doubt, The Witcher has always had the most talented community out there. Each month you guys send us tons of great fan art, musical tracks, fanfics and stuff so amazing that we sometimes decide to hang it on the walls here in the studio. The time has come to give you a chance to create something really amazing and get rewarded for your hard work,” said Marcin Momot, Community Manager, CD PROJEKT RED.

With all-star professional cosplayers invited to help pick the winners, the studio is offering the victor $1000, custom Witcher jewelry, and a unique chance to fly all over the world with Team RED and cosplay at the gaming industry’s biggest events, all expenses paid.

“The competition starts on the 24th of July and ends on the 30th of October, so there’s plenty of time to create something that will blow us away”, adds Momot.

The jury of the competition consists of:

  • Eve Beauregard,
  • Nadya Sonika,
  • LeeAnna VAMP,
  • Shappi,
  • CD PROJEKT RED team members
