Massively multiplayer fashion-brawler Misplaced Ark started a Witcher crossover on its Korean servers in November, however solely now has Amazon Video games confirmed when Geralt and buddies can be arriving on western servers: January, 2023.

Geralt, Ciri, Yennefer, Triss, and Dandelion will all be coming to Misplaced Ark, with “voiceover work from the game’s authentic actors” in response to a press launch from Amazon Video games. It additionally explains their arrival can be a part of an occasion that is solely out there for a restricted time, which will even add an island referred to as White Wolf’s Haven. 

The island is outwardly “a setting for merriment and festivals till a mysterious vortex instantly seems, pausing the celebrations. As gamers examine the source of the unexplained phenomenon, they encounter a customer from a distinct time and place – Geralt of Rivia, the famed Witcher. This begins a series of occasions during which the participant will face the thriller of this interdimensional vortex, assembly much more guests from one other dimension alongside the way in which. On this collision between worlds, gamers of Misplaced Ark will group up with characters from The Witcher to resolve a puzzle that spans time and area.”

In addition to the quests that gamers will get to participate in alongside PC Gamer’s favourite gravelly videogame father determine, the occasion will in fact add some extra vogue choices to Misplaced Ark. “New Witcher themed cosmetics can be out there within the retailer, and new character customization scars, Playing cards, Stronghold buildings, Emojis (and extra) await adventurers who take part within the occasion”, Amazon says.

Whereas the variations of the characters who will seem as NPCs in Misplaced Ark look just about like they do in The Witcher 3, the wearable Geralt and Ciri skins for PCs to purchase are just a little disconcerting. As you may see in one of many Korean trailers, whereas there are slight variations between the variations for every class, all of the Geralts look fairly younger, clean-shaven, and good-looking in an anime prettyboy sort of means. In the meantime, the Ciri skins for nonhuman classes have pointed elvish ears for the mage or are tiny and childlike for the artist (a category at present solely out there within the Korean model who makes use of a magic paintbrush to work ink-based magic, and is mainly a hobbit).

I’ll most likely find yourself shopping for a number of the weapon skins and the Kaer Morhen background artwork for the character display, however I do not anticipate an excessive amount of from the story in a promotional occasion. In the meantime, Misplaced Ark’s additionally getting the summoner class and endgame Brelshaza legion raid as a part of a December update together with the Caliligos guardian raid, T3 hardmode dice and boss rush, a brand new accent kind for bracelets, and new chaos dungeons.

The Witcher has beforehand crossed over with over videogames, together with Monster Hunter World, Soulcalibur 6, and cellular game AFK Area. Geralt’s additionally been noticed in a leaked trailer for Fortnite Chapter 4. He certain does get round.
