The first proper details about July’s WitcherCon event have been revealed.
“In case you’re wondering, no new Witcher game will be announced at WitcherCon, but there are still lots of reasons to tune in,” according to the digital convention’s newly launched site.
Billed as a celebration of The Witcher universe and its community, the event promises “exciting news, reveals… and a few surprises”.
While a full schedule will be revealed “soon”, it will include deep dives into the making of the games and the Netflix show, plus interactive panels with stars like Henry Cavill and the game’s developers.
Viewable on Netflix, Twitch and YouTube, the event will air twice, “with both streams featuring unique, exclusive content”.
The first stream will take place on July 9 at 10am PT / 1pm ET / 6pm BST and the second at 6pm PT / 9pm ET (July 10 at 2am BST).
