The witcher Geralt returns to the media spotlight with the next-gen versions of The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt, and I’m sure you’ll be crazy to get your hands on these fan-designed controllers.
Although The Witcher 3 was first released no less than 7 years ago, CD Projekt’s RPG has been experiencing a second youth since the middle of December. Without a doubt, the rise of the Polish studio and its licenses is one of the great news of 2022.
Henry Cavill may no longer be Geralt (sad news for the fandom), but The Witcher’s future is brighter than ever before in video games.
For starters, The Witcher 3 has landed on its feet with its next-gen versions on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. Players are hooked on the adventure of The Witcher, which not only receives technical improvements but also new content taken from the Netflix series.
On the horizon is the enigmatic The Witcher 4, which will start a new saga within the universe created by Andrzej Sapkowski, but we have not forgotten the remake of the first The Witcher either.
To commemorate this exciting situation for the RPG saga, a fan of The Witcher 3 has decorated his PS5 and Xbox Series X|S controllers… and we wish we could buy them, right?
Two controls of pure “witchcraft”
Surely many of you are hooked on The Witcher 3 on your consoles or PC, and no wonder. CD Projekt has resurfaced its most popular work with a free update packed with content and major visual enhancements.
If you are a big fan of the role-playing saga, you cannot miss the great creations of GriftyGamerGuy. Through this Reddit post, he has shared his great designs for the PS5 and Xbox controllers.
Needless to say, these themed controllers are not for sale, so for now we can only contemplate how beautiful they are. They have been designed by this player with his own hands.
Using the PS5 Dualsense controller and a white Xbox Series X|S controller, GriftyGamerGuy has painted the surface of both with greyish tones, the ”three” mark in the shape of a red claw and even the Wolf symbol on the back left of the grips.
They could well pass for official themed controllers, but the truth is that they are normal PS5 and Xbox controllers. The creativity and good work of this player did the rest.
In the comments, players ask GriftyGamerGuy to apply for a job at Sony or Microsoft, as they claim that these designs are better than some official ones that are sold in stores.
If you have the CD Projekt game on PS4, Xbox One or PC, you can now update it 100% free to the next generation version. You can also get the Complete Edition, which includes the base game and the Blood and Wine and Hearts of Stone expansions.
The Witcher 3 is currently available on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch. Best of all, you can now get both the standard and GOTY editions for an unbeatable price on portals like Steam, GOG, or the Microsoft Store.
