This Witcher 3 mod lets you play the game as a woman

You can add a companion, too

A new fanmade mod for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt now allows you to change your playable character. As seen in the video above, player ParKan designed several mods to customize your Witcher 3 experience, allowing others to change protagonist Geralt into either Triss, Yennefer, Shani or Ciri.

While all of these options are women — including one of our favorite female characters of the year — they each use Geralt's animations during combat and some cutscenes, according to ParKan. The mod even retains Geralt's voice for added incongruity.

ParKan is also the designer of a mod that adds permanent companions to your Witcher's journey. There are five options for the non-playable ally characters and, according to a Reddit thread, you can even use them to aid you in combat.

The Witcher 3 launched on Windows PC, as well as PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, back in May. It's since garnered accolades from institutions like The Game Awards 2015, where it won the title of overall Game of the Year.
