Kaer Morhen is one of the most iconic video game locations of all time. If you haven't played The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt you may not know how important Kaer Morhen is to Geralt, the rest of the crew, and the player themselves. The witchers of The Continent know it as a home as well as a place where new witchers are 'born', so we're delighted to finally see Netflix's version of the keep.
During WitcherCon, Netflix revealed the first proper look at Kaer Morhen as Geralt inevitably goes back to his old home. The fortress is seen through the first and third games as a setting for battles and a place for reunions - it could be that we see both of these scenarios in season two of The Witcher.
You can see our first look, and a guided tour, of Kaer Morhen here...
In the video, Netflix details that "creating Kaer Morhen for season two has been quite the adventure. We have worked so hard to bring this ancient keep to life, the place where witchers return each winter to rest and restore. I'm excited to welcome you all, legacy fans and new audiences alike, home to Kaer Morhen. Over 1000 years old, this building has seen more than its fair share of danger. Each column and stone tells the story of how witchers endured amid the dark history of an evolving Continent."
We see a few key sets for The Witcher which are a little different from what players of The Witcher 3 might be used to. The Great Hall, armoury, and lab all looks unfamiliar and yet the dark and mystical surroundings feel very witcher.
The video says: "At the very heart of Kaer Morhen is the Great Hall, built in stunning detail for season two. We see that the keep's tables are empty, its giant fire pit casting more shadows than light. At the centre of the Great Hall stands the Medallion Tree, a mysterious and looming memorial where the medallions of fallen witchers have been hung for hundreds of years. A reminder of the brotherhood that bonds them, even in death."
It's obvious that the production team had to get Kaer Morhen right as it will be a place that Geralt revisits over future series too. It's reported that Henry Cavill has signed up to play Geralt for another five seasons of the series and we'll undoubtedly come back to the keep and see other members of the witcher brotherhood in that time.
