Good news if you’re in the US but sadly most EU gamers are going to have to take a day off if they plan on getting really engrossed in the Geralt action. Still, something to look forward to after a hard day at the office.
We’ll be checking the game out later this week when PC code is released for review purposes. Currently only console code has been made available for review, so if you’re a PC gamer, reserve judgement until the PC version is tested.
