‘The Witcher 3’ Launches Holiday Mod Contest; Real-Life ‘Witcher’ Sword is Grand Prize
CD Projekt RED, developers of the highly-successful action role-playing game “The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt” recently announced that they would be accepting holiday-themed game modifications (more commonly known in the gaming community as “mods”). The best part is, they’re putting up an actual, real-life replica of the Witcher sword as the grand prize.

Submissions are open for anyone around the world (with files to be hosted by NexusMods) but you do have to be 18 years old or older to be able to participate. CD Projekt Red, did in fact encourage everyone from around the globe to join, but also advised potential modders to “check with your country’s rules regarding shipping sharp objects.”
Gaming website Gamespot reported that the developers will review the submissions until they find one lucky winner that will take home an actual Witcher sword, which is one of the most iconic blades that are present in the game.
“The Witcher 3” was released May 2015 to wide critical and financial success and gamers today still enjoy the rich world the Northern Kingdoms has to offer. It boasted a land area 30 times larger than its predecessors “The Witcher” and “The Witcher 2: Assassin of Kings.” It has also been recently awarded as overall Game of the Year; surely, developers CD Projekt Red gave fans yet another reason to enjoy the open-world environment with a fresh perspective, thanks to this timely contest.
