CD Projekt Red announced that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and PC will include new content that is associated with the TV show. Specifically, these new items will be cosmetic and will allow players to change the appearance of their character, likely to more closely reflect how Henry Cavill's version of Geralt looks in the series. Although we weren't given a look at these new in-game items, the studio did reveal a new piece of key art for the next-gen iteration of the title.
