Official images look heavily Photoshopped or they must be low resolution/pixelated. They don't look real to me. Just look at Geralts face.

He should have his second sword on his back. He ALWAYS has 2. I know it's not entirely comfortable and probably gets in the way but they've got a few million dollars they can figure it out..

Even the medallion is all wrong.

Can't believe I missed that.

This show honestly has just lost all hype from me. I was the happiest person in the world when they announced it. But basically everything after that has killed it. Starting with the SJW stuff at the beginning, geralt actor choice, and now they can't even get the medallion right...

Yeah. Why has it been Game of Thronesified? You would think they would make something like this. (Image from the cover of the first book)

OMG! There is an official Withcher medallion. I don't know if it came in SE packs, or you can buy it standalone. They could have just used that.

Been looking online for book quotes (seeing as this is based on the books and not the game) and came across this one which could explain the design choice

The stranger reached into his jerkin once more and pulled out a round medallion on a silver chain. It pictured the head of a wolf, baring its fangs.
Although I have seen other descriptions where it's in the shape of a wolf head, but it does seem like Geralt has owned several different medallions.

The image above showcases Geralt with a single sword on his back, complete with a scabbard which enables the sword to be drawn from that position, a feature which standard scabbards do not support.
Didn’t know a standard holster couldn’t do this, but you needed a special one for it.

Yes while this is true the official book covers that have them as seen above in WYP post is much more like what people think of a Witcher medallion. It's an incredibly important part of the Witcher life and toolset. A plain flat coin with little detail is just so meh. My biggest gripe is the effort just screams what's the cheapest thing we can do

wait for it to come out before getting on the "OMG they got this detail wrong, literally unwatchable" train.

If the show is good and manages to do the source material justice, great. If not then grab your pitchforks.
