Bandai Namco Entertainment and the creators of The Witcher games series CD Projeckt Red, announce Geralt of Rivia will be joining the playable character roster of the long-waited weapon-based 3D fighting game Soul Calibur VI.
Geralt was trained at the elite School of the Wolf and is considered one of the deadliest monster slayers. He possesses superhuman reflexes and strength, as well as superior sword fighting skills. Players who choose to fight as Geralt will utilise The Witcher’s signature fighting style with a combination of swordplay, ability-enhancing potions, and combat magic. Doug Cockle, the English voice of Geralt of Rivia, returns in Soul Calibur VI to reprise the role. Gamers will also be able to fight in Kaer Morhen, home keep of the School of the Wolf. Accompanying players in battle will be “Hunt or be Hunted”, an iconic composition from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt soundtrack.
