The only surprise here is that it didn’t happen sooner
There was lots of skepticism floating around the net when we heard that Henry Cavill would star as Geralt of Rivia in the upcoming Witcher series. The very first look at Cavill with Geralt’s long silver hair didn’t quite convince us either. After the trailer hit, however, it looks like just about everyone is on board with Cavill’s Geralt along with his enormous biceps, such as modders.
A Witcher 3 mod uploaded on Nexus Mods now does the inescapable: it swaps Geralt of Rivia’s face with another Geralt of Rivia’s face. Modder”Adnan4444″ certainly took pains to get Cavill’s nose just perfect. It’s a fairly darn good likeness, at least at the screenshots uploaded with the mod.
Adnan warns at the comments section that results and performance on your own machine may vary since their version of Geralt’s face has”longer than x2 vertices in comparison to default .” That is, presumably, plenty of vertices.
Adnan has plans for potential variations on Cavill Geralt including”discoloration, grime, brown hair with blue eyes ” Adnan also links to a few other essential Geralt mods used to attain the buff version of this Witcher exhibited in their screenshots including Geralt on Steroids and Alternative Long Hair. For the rest of the mods you’ll need to receive the maximum TV-ready appearing Witcher, check out the mod for”Henry Cavill.”
I will give you this baffling image from the mod webpage, which I can only describe with one word: Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
