This mod allows you to play The Witcher 1’s prologue in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Modder ‘Erxv’ has informed us about this new mod for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. As its title suggests, this mod recreates the intro from the first The Witcher game in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. It looks pretty cool and PC gamers can go ahead, download, and play this recreation right now.

As Erxv noted, all scenes were made entirely by using the w2scene encoder and the Storyboard UI. Naturally, there was some extra editing by hand for every single scene. Additionally, some scenes required mod editor editing.

This mod is far from perfect, and according to the modder there are some scenes that could have been better. So yeah, don’t expect any triple-A quality here. Still, it can give you an idea of what The Witcher 1 could look like in a modern-day engine like the one used in The Witcher 3.

It’s worth noting that there are currently no proper mod tools for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. And from the looks of it, we won’t be getting such tools any time soon. Still, imagine what modders could achieve with proper modding tools.

Those interested can download the mod from here.

Have fun everyone!
