The Witcher Fans Are In For A Treat This Christmas
For fans of The Witcher, Christmas is coming early this year.
The official Twitter page for The Witcher recently announced the upcoming "Witchmas" celebration, a six-day, Christmas-themed celebration for fans of the Netflix series. Described as a "holiday feast where nobody has to mingle, and everybody receives a gift," the six days of Witchmas will involve the release of Witcher-themed content, all of which will be decided by the fans.
The way it works is simple: For each day of the celebration, The Witcher Twitter account will offer fans the choice between a gift or invoking the Law of Surprise, which will likely result in a surprise gift that isn't revealed ahead of time. Whichever option receives the most votes in the course of 24 hours wins. Each day will come with a new "gift" to vote on, as well as the release of the previously chosen gift.
The event begins on Wednesday, December 16 — meaning that voting will actually begin the day before, on Tuesday, December 15 — and will last until Monday, December 21. Voters should be prepared to make hard decisions because, judging from The Witcher Twitter account, fans may be in for some huge surprises — and not necessarily good ones, should they choose to invoke the Law of Surprise. "Choose wisely, for my gift offers are sincere, but the Law of Surprise is out of my musically-gifted hands," reads one tweet from the Witcher account.
