If you are sick and tired of seeing Geralt of Rivia’s handsome face, you can now swap it out for Henry Cavill – if only everything was this easy.
With The Witcher‘s debut release coming out on Netflix later this year, we were bound to get a mod showcasing Henry Cavill in The Witcher 3 that should keep excited fans of the upcoming show at bay until launch. In this new mod by Nexusmods, players will be able to swap out Geralt’s face (why?) with Henry’s in a new facial model based on the actor’s appearance. Although personally I much prefer Geralt’s rugged face, modder “Adnan4444” has without a doubt put in the time and effort to perfect Mr Cavill’s features, right down to his nose.
The description on Nexusmods states that “This mod page will be a base for different Henry Cavill variations in future. With scars, dirt, brown hair with blue eyes etc, but first of all, now I’m presenting a look closer to Geralt in Netflix show”. “Adnan4444” has also implemented “head meshes for the shaved face”…” hair physics for beards”, “Body hair textures” that include “healed scars” and “Toxicity textures from the show, without black eyes for now.”
Geralt’s in-game voice actor, Doug Cockle told IGN how he felt about the Henry Cavill mod, expressing “How dare they mod out my perfectly facial captured image of Game Geralt. Leave Geralt alone guys… he’s fine as he is…but I giggled a bit.”
If you fancy playing The Witcher 3 on PC as Henry Cavill, you can head over to Nexusmods and download the mod for free.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is available now on PC, PS4, and Xbox One with the Nintendo Switch version of the game set to arrive sometime later this year. If you haven’t picked up the title yet, you can do that on Amazon. Due to an outcry, Netflix gave fans there first look at Geralt’s trusty steed Roach via a new image from the show in which we see the man himself riding his loyal mere.
