Lucy for you, unlike when this guide was originally made, all of the books now have official English translations!
Random names of places like Kovir, Nilfgaard, Cintra, Kaedwen, etc.
You'll finally understand all the references Geralt and other characters are constantly making to past events.
The Witcher video games are based on a renowned fantasy book series by the Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski.These books take place several years before the beginning of the first game and provide a lot of background information on the characters and world.Also, now that all the official translations are complete, I want to dedicate this post to all the people who devoted countless hours of hard work and made the fan translations possible.The Witcher Series is made up of 2 short story collections and 5 novels.It is a new Witcher book and was released in 2013 (14 years after the release of Lady of the Lake).It has not been translated to English, and the fan translation is not yet complete as far as I know.It is not essential to the overall story and can most likely be skipped unless you are the type of person that need to read absolutely everything Witcher related.Why Should I Read Them?You'll actually understand who the hell everyone.Sorted in chronological order (the way you should read them) the books that make up the series are: The Last q club snooker game softonic Wish (short story collection).
They'll provide you with a lot of in-depth background information on the world and characters.
You'll care about the characters and story significantly more.
The short story collections introduce many of our favorite characters and do a lot of world building, and the novels tell the story of Geralt and Ciri.If anyone has any updates on the status of the fan translation for this book please.Time of Contempt, baptism of Fire, the Tower of Swallows.TL;DR: The books are really good and can really enhance your understanding and appreciation of everything that's happening in the games.They're just damn good books, where Can I Get Them?
