The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Will Boast Dynamic Beard Growth

So...does this mean you have to stop every now and then to shave? And how long is "long but not Gandalf long?"

We're talking about Geralt's beard in the upcoming RPG from CD Projekt Red, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. See, according to Eurogamer, it grows as you play.

The beard has "several" states, says studio communications boss Michał Platkow-Gilewski:

"The beard grows as time passes and when Geralt moves between locations. The beard has several 'states' and these states determine its length--the longest is really long but it's not Gandalf-long."

So far, we haven't seen Geralt with a big bushy beard but we imagine such images will show up as gamers wait forever to shave. By the way, if you pick up the free "Beard and Hairstyle" add-on pack, this dynamic beard growth will stop. The developers figure if you get such an add-on, you'll want a "predefined look."

What's next? Cavities? Gotta go see a dentist?

lol I loved in Deadly Premonition how if you didn't shave or wear new suits you got a beard and flies buzzing around your stink.

I wanna pick my beard style, but it's too bad that that style won't grow too.

You were able to change your hair style and other things in the other witcher games, so maybe just maybe they will put the beard styles in this game.

If not at launch it could be added in an update knowing these guys.

It looks like the beard and hairstyle add on pack will solve this.
