A fan has created a new mod that attempts to replace Geralt in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt with his silver screen counterpart – Henry Cavill, who is set to play the role of the white wolf for the Netflix TV series.

A premiere date for Netflix’s The Witcher series still hasn’t been announced, however it’s supposed to launch sometime later this year.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is now available for Windows PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. In case you missed it – you can read our review for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt here (we highly recommend it, it was our 2015 game of the year!).
