News | Game of Thrones actor may appear in second season of The Witcher

Game of Thrones actor Kristofer Hivju is likely to appear in the second season of Netflix series The Witcher.

In Game of Thrones, Hivju played the role of Tormund Giantsbane, a great and brave Wildling with a big beard and an even bigger axe.

The website Redanian Intelligence, which previously had correct information about upcoming Netflix shows, claims that Hivju will play the role of ‘Nigel’ according to callsheets. This is possibly a code name of the character Nivellen, from The Witcher book The Last Wish. This would be a “charismatic, witty man”.

Hivju’s role within The Witcher has not yet been officially confirmed. The second season of the popular series around Geralt or Rivia should be on the streaming service next year.

Cross gen

The Elden Ring is a cross-gen title that is being developed in collaboration with Game of Thrones creator George R. R. Martin. The game must become a ‘natural evolution’ of Dark Souls including an open world. Dark Souls director Hidetaka Miyazaki also revealed that players can ride horses and fight on horseback. A release date for The Elden Ring is not yet known.

Game of Thrones and Dark Souls are colliding. A trailer for a new From Software game called Elden Ring was shown at E3 2019’s Microsoft press conference.

Gamescom 2019 takes place from the 20th to the 24th of August.
