If you’re a fan of The Witcher III: Wild Hunt – and, come on, who isn’t? – then you’re going to love this.

CD Projekt Red, the Poland-based development team behind the awesome adventure, has announced that a previously recorded concert, Video Game Show – The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, is available to watch in its entirety.

The finale of the 9th edition of the Film Music Festival recently took place at Krakow’s Tauron Arena, and gave the audience an opportunity to check out orchestral arrangements of music from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, as well as both of its expansions, Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine. The concert lasts well over two hours and features plenty of award-winning music – and a little bit of metal thrown in for good measure.

“Seeing 12,000 people listening live to something we worked so many years on with Mikolai Stroinski and Piotr Musiat – it’s magical; a beautiful culmination of the time we spent on scoring Geralt’s adventures,” noted Marcin Przyvylowicz, The Witcher III’s music director. “With the concert now available through YouTube, gamers, fantasy fans and music lovers can join us then and there, feel the emotions and excitement of those moments.”

The concert is performed by the Aukso Chamber Orchestra of the City of Tychy, the Pro Musica Mundi choir, folk-metal band (yes, there’s such a thing) Percival Schuttenbach and soloists, including Wioletta Choodowichz (soprano), Rafal Grzaka (accordion), Robert Jaworski (hurdy-gurdy, lute, gusle) and Amir Yaghamai (master of Persian folk instruments).

It only costs $9.99, and you can get a preview of the show below. The concert can be purchased in full here if you like what you see, and, again, who wouldn’t? This is Witcher awesomeness at its best, and the show looks to be a lot of fun.

The Witcher III: Wild Hunt is available now for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
