About the game
The Witcher 3, from Polish studio CD Projekt RED, has been voted 251 times « Video Game of the Year 2015 » . Its graphics, scenario, music and gameplay are all exceptional. However, as it contains scenes of violence and nudity, as well as vulgar language, it is intended for an adult audience. That hasn’t stopped the game from selling more than 30 million copies worldwide.
