Finally! As anyone with facial hair will tell you, it grows. Except in video games, where beards seem suspended in time. Not anymore.

In Witcher 3, the beard of series protagonist Geralt grows in real time. According to Eurogamer, the game’s developer, CD Projekt, said that the beard grows “as time passes” and when the character changes locations in-game. This was first pointed out by NeoGAF user His Majesty and German game magazine Gamestar.
