Why is Geralt in Lost Ark?

The story will introduce a new island to the world of Lost Ark called White Wolf’s Haven. During a festival, a mysterious vortex will appear causing Geralt and his allies to end up in Arkesia. Lost Ark players will then need to team up with the famed Witcher to solve a mystery that spans time and space.

Fans of The Witcher will know that the series is no stranger to multiversal shenanigans and that different universes are connected by something called the Spiral. Geralt has visited various universes before and this plot device is likely behind why Geralt and his crew are able to arrive in Arkesia.

Geralt is getting quite a dab hand at these crossovers, too. The Witcher has appeared in Soul Calibur VI, and even Monster Hunter World.
