CD PROJEKT RED and Netflix have together unveiled the full schedule for WitcherCon — the upcoming global online celebration of The Witcher franchise.
Originally announced during Netflix’s Geeked Week, WitcherCon is looking to bring some flair to The Witcher universe by hosting its own two-day virtual convention. CD PROJEKT RED has officially revealed the official con schedule for WitcherCon and what fans can expect each day of this new event. Amongst the line-up is The Witcher developer, CD PROJEKT RED who will be hosting numerous panels including Memories from the Path: Stories Behind The Witcher Games, this panel will feature the developers and key figures from the creation of The Witcher video game series who will discuss how they bring stories to life in digital worlds while also reminiscing about their favorite moments and forgotten relics.
In the Monster Slayer: Live the Life of a Witcher panel, the team at Spokko will help gamers prepare to become a Witcher themselves by showing off their new location-based augmented reality RPG. The Witcher: Beyond Video Games panel will feature insight on the creative process behind the items from the expanded Witcher universe, including The Witcher comic books and the upcoming board game, The Witcher: Old World.
To cap off the first-ever WitcherCon, CD PROJEKT RED and Netflix will be showcasing more Witcher content, as well as multiple musical performances from composer Marcin Przybyłowicz and folk metal band Percival. Both have worked on the award-winning original score for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (if you haven’t given that OST a listen, please do you will not be disappointed).
Available on both Twitch and YouTube, WitcherCon will air on July 9th at 7:00 PM CEST. Fans will be able to watch WitcherCon across two separate streams, with each one containing some exclusive content. The second stream, which also airs on Twitch and YouTube, will begin at 03:00 AM CEST on July 10th.
