Eagle-eyed fans are quick to point out how the controversial Nilfgaard armor in the Netflix series is coming to The Witcher 3 in its next-gen update.


While the Witcher Netflix series is incredibly popular, especially its first season, that’s not to say it has ever been perfect, and perhaps the worst part of the show is coming to The Witcher 3 as part of its next-gen update. Indeed, CDPR recently released a trailer showing all the improvements in The Witcher 3 for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X.


However, it’s been spotted that some Nilfgaard soldiers will wear the wrinkly, disliked suits seen in the show. The games feature a memorable black and metallic look for Nilfgaard armor, but the show used something that was wrinkly and almost disgusting to look at. This Nilfgaard armor stirred controversy for the Witcher Netflix series, even after showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich explained that the team wanted something that could look mass-produced due to the size of the Nilfgaardian army, as well as something fitting for combat. On the one hand, this makes sense, but on the other hand, it doesn’t mean anyone had to be happy about it.

It’s been no secret that The Witcher 3 would get Netflix-inspired DLC, but some may have forgotten about it. The Cyberpunk: Edgerunners DLC came to Cyberpunk 2077 much quicker, after all. However, as spotted by Push Square, one Nilfgaard soldier in the trailer is clearly wearing this armor. It’s uncertain how this will work, as it could be a permanent change to the game (though this feels unlikely) or some form of in-game toggle like alternate outfits. Either way, it’s a surprising addition given how this armor was received by fans.

However, the good news is that a new armor set for The Witcher 3‘s Geralt can also be seen in the trailer. It’s luckily not the wrinkly armor of Nilfgaard, but a simple Netflix-inspired suit of armor for Geralt. Fans will just have to wait and see how this works, and it should be noted that CDPR has said patch notes for the update will come closer to launch.

It’s likely there fans will learn how this suit works. For the most part, if fans who hated this Nilfgaard armor can ignore, it should all turn out well. After all, this update is more than a suit of armor, and all the next-gen upgrades coming to The Witcher 3 have built a ton of hype over the last few months. If it plays better, then this will likely be forgiven by its naysayers.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunts next-gen upgrades come to PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S on December 14.
