The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt casts Charles Dance as a Major Character

Since its announcement in February, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has been shaping up very nicely with stunning visuals, the reveal of a larger living, breathing world (20% bigger than the world in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim) and of course the biggest and most obvious proof; It’s coming to the next gen. With all this good news, your probably thinking; How can this get any better? Well guess what, It just has.

Today, CD Projekt Red revealed that Brittish Actor, Charles Dance (who is best known for his most recent role of Lord Tywin Lannister in HBO’s Game of Thrones) will be voicing Emperor Emhyr var Emreis in The Witcher 3.

Describing their decision, Marcin Blacha (Lead Writer for the title) said “Charles Dance is the perfect candidate to play the mighty Nilfgaardian emperor in our upcoming title. It’s a dream come true for the team here at RED to be able to work with such an accomplished actor and magnetic personality,”


*Spoiler Alert*

After Nilfgaard’s invasion of the Northern Kingdoms at the end of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, the emperor’s forces ravaged these lands, sowing terror and despair. Killing Monsters, the epic cinematic trailer released earlier today, shows No Man’s Land, a part of the North, under Nilfgaardian rule. Check out this trailer below.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is set to be released on PC, PlayStation 4 & Xbox One in 2014. So will you be purchasing this great looking game? Let me know in the comments section below and be sure to stay with UGNN for more news on The Witcher 3 as it is revealed.
