The next installment in The Witcher series has arrived!
Game Informer has revealed the next hot upcoming title for The Witcher with their March cover which reveals The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, a sequel to the Xbox 360 debut, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings and the PC title The Witcher.
Here is the Cover of next months Game Informer:
G.I.’s Adam Biessner writer of the article starts off the magazine’s exclusive coverage with the following quote to tease your inner RPG fan:
“Our March cover story gives a world-exclusive peek into the next generation of RPGs with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. This standalone sequel takes the fascinating stories and characters, non-linear plotlines, and difficult decisions that the franchise is known for and puts them all in an open world 30 times larger than the previous game – an enormous setting even larger than Skyrim’s vast expanse, made possible with the new REDengine 3 technology that developer CD Projekt RED is debuting with the game.”
CD Projekt Red’s head of the studio, Adam Badowski, shared with the world a some more info in regards to what we can expect from Geralt of Rivia’s final installment to The Witcher’s trilogy.
“The captivating and non-linear story of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt takes place in a rich, truly open-world environment. A world which is thrilling to explore, full of daring adventures, momentous quests, memorable characters, and unique monsters. Players will freely travel through woods, lakes, mountains, cities and villages. Each region is inhabited by distinct populations with their own customs, legends and problems. The world of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is 30 times bigger than The Witcher 2.
Imagine playing a dark fantasy game with the same great non-linear story as in the previous Witcher titles, but now told in a world you can explore freely with no artificial boundaries. The war-ravaged world is so huge that to reach farther places you will need to ride a horse or sail a boat to get there. A world where your choices have truly epic consequences. From the development side, this goal is extremely demanding. Our team had to make significant design changes and our tech had to be rebuilt. But we believe that this will lead to a completely new level of non-linearity and a whole new, richer gaming experience. As a gamer, I would love to play this kind of RPG, and I think this is what many players are waiting for. This is our dream come true at CD Projekt RED, and we hope it will be the same for you!”
If your still not believing that this is the final game in the Witcher series. Adam Badowski adds why this is the final entry to The Witcher series:
“People may ask if this is really going to be the last Witcher game. Yes, it is. Why? Because we believe that we should end the series on a high note. Technology has progressed to where we can finally tell the story the way we want, with the visuals we want, in the world we imagined. This will be the ultimate fantasy RPG experience, and while we’re hardly out of stories to tell, we believe it’s time for us to look to new worlds and new horizons to keep pushing the boundaries of what we can create”
Game Informer has also posted a video of the team at CD Projekt RED speaking on what to expect from their upcoming sequel.
