The folks over at CD Projekt RED have decided to let us in on more information and screenshots from their new game, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
Adam Badowski, the head of CD Projekt RED Studio mentions, "The Witcher 3 is full of impactful decisions, and gamers will choose between storylines that exclude one another in a single playthrough, ensuring extensive replay value. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt crowns the trilogy with the main narrative, revolving around Geralt’s search for his loved ones and his conflict with the Wild Hunt. As players travel through the game, they visit lands with their own unique atmosphere, communities and memorable characters. CD Projekt RED didn’t create an open world with a singular theme, but concentrated on delivering diversified and engaging environments, 30 times larger than those in The Witcher 2."
It really looks like they are trying to take on the Elder Scrolls series for the biggest and most immersive open-world RPG--which is awesome to hear. The competition should pressure both parties to push their games past their limitations and create so much that benefits the gamer and the studios themselves.
Badowski continues, "This setting changes depending on gamers’ actions not only when completing Geralt’s personal storyline, but also because of his involvement in major local plotlines in each land visited and many other carefully-designed side quests. All threads of this player-crafted tale interact with each other and the world, creating an even more nonlinear experience than ever before. The main narrative accounts for around 50 hours of gameplay in one playthrough, and the additional stories add another 50 hours of role playing, giving around 100 hours of total gaming time."
Here are a ton of new screenshots to get you even more excited:
