When he’s not swinging a silver sword or riding Roach to the next monster-stricken village on The Continent, Henry Cavill likes to unwind with a nice, relaxing Total War campaign. The star of Netflix’s upcoming Witcher series tells Hobby Consolas that in addition to The Witcher games, his favourite pastimes include Creative Assembly’s strategy series.
As translated for Redanian Intelligence, Hobby Consolas asked Cavill what his favourite games are.
“The Witcher 3, but I love Total War games as well,” he said. “Every time I get into one of them, I keep playing until I die for good. For some reason, there is something about the nature of the strategy of the battle front that I love.”
There’s a bit that’s obviously lost in the process of Cavill’s quotes being translated into Spanish and then back into English, but it’s clear he’s a fan of the Total War series, even though he doesn’t specify in the interview a specific title of which he’s especially fond. Instead, Cavill says he likes the fact that he can return to a Total War game after months away and start a new campaign.
“I can play them whenever I want and start over,” he said. “And it’s still a fresh experience, which is a dream come true.”
