The Witcher 3 adds… beard growth?

CD Projekt has incorporated incredible life-like graphics, realistic physics, and now… beard growth into the Witcher 3?

Yes, the main character, Geralt, of the Witcher 3 will now have even more realistic features with a beard that grows over time ranging from a variety of different “states” that determine its length.

CD Projekt is known for its attention to detail within its games, but this news shows just how detailed the developers intend to make their world.

Though the beard growth keeps a dynamic look of your character, CD Projekt Communications chief Michał Platkow-Gilewski explained to Eurogamer those who want a static look can download a free DLC.

“When you download the free Beard and Hairstyle DLC the growth of the beard will stop because we decided that when players want a predefined look, it would be weird to require from them to reapply it time after time.”

The Witcher 3 is due for a May 19th release on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
