There's a handful of fan-made content for The Witcher games, and it's just been joined by The Witcher: Masquerade — a fantastic new mystery adventure where Geralt must make the most of his detective skills.

Check out this trailer for The Witcher: Masquerade to get a feel for its vibe:

 

If you're somehow unfamiliar with The Witcher, it tells the tale of Geralt of Rivia. Geralt is a "Witcher", a magically-mutated warrior cursed with sterility but blessed with unnaturally long life and heightened combat abilities. His powers are often the only thing preventing the innocent people of the land from being overrun by terrible fantasy monsters that would love to have them for lunch.

Now, a brand-new fan adventure has been released for the very first Witcher game. It's pretty different from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, so anyone who hasn't played the original might be in for a bit of a shock with the different combat system.

 
 

As the Steam Community announcement notes, this mod has Polish voice acting and English subtitles. Players can enjoy 14 non-linear quests that will ultimately provide around 7–8 hours of gameplay. The patch which added English subtitles also brought with it some overall improvements to the mod.
