Have you just completed watching The Witcher on Netflix? Then you might be thinking of starting to play Witcher 3 right now. It is a great game, and one of the best video games to play in 2020. However, before you start playing this game, you better know how to play it in the right way. You might be wondering whether there is a right and wrong way of playing this game. There is a correct way of playing Witcher 3, and in this post, we will be talking about the correct way to play Witcher 3.
It is now five years since I started playing this game. I have played all the quests, seen all the outcomes, read all the graphic novels, and even know how to pronounce ‘seh deh proyekt red’ correctly. I have also seen all the TV shows, and I can tell you one is much better than the other one.
To get the most out of Witcher 3, you should read the Witcher Series by Andrzej Sapkowski 8 Books Collection Set. By reading these books before you start playing, you will know everything about this game starting from location to the backstory of every character. You will also get answers to some of the questions that many newbies are always asking. Some of these questions include:
- What happens to the sorcerers?
- Why are Yen and Geralt together?
- How did Ciri and Geralt meet?
- Why does Dijkstra limp?
Witcher 3 is an easy game to enjoy with or without that background knowledge that one gets after reading the novels. However, you should note that the games are not telling about the books. The games start right where the novels end. For better results, if you are planning to start playing Witcher 3, you should start with the two collections of stories:
- The Last Wish
- The Sword of Destiny
The two books follow the exploits of Geralt in his younger years and depict how he met various characters that are in the game, such as Dandelion, Ciri, and Yen. After that, you can now start reading the novels. They are all numbered, and there is no need for me to tell you which order you should use to read them. That is a lot of reading, but it is worth it for every gamer that wants to become a Witcher 3 pro.
2. Get a good PC
It can take you weeks or even months to finish reading all the books in part one. For sure, you will have spent most of your free time reading these books, and as a result, you might end up not going out with your friends or buying an expensive video game. You may also cancel some of your subscription services because you won’t have time for them when reading these books. That is money saved which can go towards your new gaming PC.
3. Play Witcher 2
You can play Witcher 2 on your PC, Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch. It is still a fantastic game, no matter where you choose to play it. If you have been wondering why you need to get a good gaming PC, yet you can play Witcher 3 on a console. That is because you can only play Witcher 1 on a PC, and there is nothing like a perfect playthrough for Witcher 3 if you have not yet player Witcher 1. The good thing is that Witcher 1 and Witcher 2 are considerably shorter than Witcher 3, which means it won’t take you long. The two can together take you back around sixty to seventy hours depending on how much of a completionist you are.
4. Install Mods
Another reason why you need to get a great gaming PC is that you will be installing mods for Witcher 3. Some of the Witcher 3 mods are overwhelming, but that does not mean that all of them are like that. Some are quality, no matter how small they may seem to be, and they can make a huge difference. Here are some of the best Witcher 3 mods that are absolutely necessary:
- Wasteland Ghost Friendly HUD Mod – It gives you more options when it comes to customizing the User Interface.
- Absolute Camera by P Mark – It lets you tweak the camera to make Witcher 3 more cinematic
- Super Tunnel Lighting Mod
- The Witcher 3 HD Reworked Project
After doing all the above four things, you are ready to start playing Witcher 3. You have all that you need to become one of the best Witcher 3 players. Remember, you can’t become a pro player by just playing once. The more you play, the more fun the game is, and the more you polish your Witcher 3 gaming skills.
