Bandai Namco and creators of The Witcher games series CD Projekt Red have announced that Geralt of Rivia will be joining the playable character roster of the long-waited weapon-based 3D fighting, SoulCalibur V.
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 utilize 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 SOULCALIBUR 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.
The legendary weapon-based 3D fighting game returns to its roots, never looking more dynamic or dramatic, intensified with eye-popping graphics powered by Unreal Engine 4. Travel through the signature 16th century stages and experience the struggle for the two legendary swords using a complete roster of returning iconic SOULCALIBUR characters including Mitsurugi Sophitia, along with Kilik, Nightmare, Ivy and some newcomers.
SOULCALIBUR VI, featuring Geralt of Rivia and the training grounds of Kaer Morhen stage, will be launched in 2018 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
