'The Continent' Arrives at Lucca

Exciting things are happening at Lucca Comic and Games, and Netflix is pulling out all the stops for visitors this week. Not only are there panels spanning two days, but the world of the Continent is being brought to life in an elaborate way.

Badtaste.it was able to tour the experience, named At the Gates of the Continent, while it was being set up, and the results are spectacular. Not only are the props elaborate and the costumes proudly on display, there is a station in which you can create hexes that come to life with your movement.

The maximum amount of visitors is capped at 100 people at a time, but the fun doesn’t end there. Each person gets a special medallion which looks like the one Geralt wears in the show, and is given a map to three more Witcher experiences within Lucca to find and explore.
