The world is going to hell and monsters are at every corner. It’s a bad time for humanity but open season for Geralt of Rivia, The Witcher.
The trailer focuses not just on the young Ciri (Freya Allan) taking her first steps to becoming a monster-hunter herself, training at the legendary Witcher holdout of Kaer Morhen, but teases wider conflict across the Continent that threatens to engulf the world in a war between empires… and maybe even reunite Geralt (Henry Cavill) with the mysterious Yennefer of Vengerberg (Anya Chalotra).
We can see a massive war of magic and mayhem that Yennefer and the rest of her surviving mage allies are caught up in, and the continued menace of the Nilfgaardian Empire nipping at the Continent’s collective heels. Plus, Geralt and Ciri battle some mean looking beasts, including a bark-tentacled creature that seemingly starts out disguised as a house before revealing its true, witchy (but not Witcher witchy) form for Ciri and Geralt to hack away at. Hell of a training program young Ciri’s on, but at least it seems like she gets the hang of it pretty quickly—and as a new poster below shows, gets herself a new, much more combat-ready look to boot:
