Stirling Castle, cradled defensively by the steep cliffs of Castle Hill, still stands as proudly and prominently as it did during the 15th Century. This beautiful, high-rise area, has seen the coronation of Mary Queen of Scots, eight major sieges, and even association with King Arthur himself. So it’s little wonder that CD Projekt RED have used it as a source of inspiration for the crown-jewel of their globally renowned Witcher trilogy.
Despite being the pride of Poland, Scottish ambiance is prevalent throughout The Witcher 3, not just with its beautiful vistas and snow-capped scenery, but in narration as well. The Witcher 3 has a solid cast of English, Irish, Scottish and even Welsh voice actors, their guttural tones drawing you into to an age of high fantasy and medieval savagery. This mesh of culture works wonderfully and really sets the scene for something truly special.
