TA Playlist Game for July 2019 Announced

By Mark Delaney, 28 days ago
Does anyone else smell lilac and gooseberries? It must be because our next TA Playlist game has been determined. After a week and thousands of community votes, this July you can play along with us as we begin our quest in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

The Witcher 3 launched in 2015 to rave reviews, garnering a 5/5 here on TA and an average of 92 across all platforms on Metacritic. The story follows Geralt of Rivia, a monster hunter for hire on a deeply personal quest to find his surrogate daughter before the titular Wild Hunt does first.

When it launched, it was praised for its remarkably branching and unpredictable questlines, where one side quest may sprout into three more before all of their conclusions combine to alter the critical path in very important ways. The full completion will take upwards of 120 hours, and that doesn't include the two hefty expansions CD Projekt Red gave it over the years.

If you're wondering what all the fuss is about regarding Cyberpunk 2077, or if you're excited to revisit Geralt and friends, or maybe you just want the achievement stack of the Game of the Year Edition, we hope you'll saddle up and play along with us beginning on July 1st. Until then, you can still join us as we continue our coverage of a different kind of tortured hero with June's Batman: Arkham City.
