Set in an Elven world 1200 years before the world of "The Witcher," “The Witcher: Blood Origin” will trace the origins of the very first Witcher of the Elven civilization before its fall, as well as the events that led to the pivotal “conjunction of the spheres,” when the worlds of monsters, men, and elves merged to become one.
