Also known as the Polish Lord of the Rings, the Witcher saga has gained popularity in western culture largely thanks to the video games from CD Projekt RED.
What’s on the Witcher Timeline?
This timeline includes both the original noveles and short stories with the games, even though technically they are two seperate canons. For now, though, there is no reason why they can’t coexist as there are no major contraditictions in the story. Several comics are included as well, which exist primarily in the game chronology.
Where to start the Witcher story?
If you like reading, you’re best off starting with the anthology of short stories, The Last Wish. But if you’re a gamer, we recommend starting with The Witcher 3. The game may be late in the chronology, but you do not have to have played the other games, or read the books, to understand what’s going on. And it’s a fantastic dive (possibly the best) into the Witcher universe.
