The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Preview – finally played itself




At E3 last year we were impressed with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The game impressed with a clear graphical upgrade, both on the PC and on consoles, though the latter is rather wiedes. The Witcher 2, after all, still came out on the previous generation of consoles. In Los Angeles we saw a first glimpse of the third part of the adventure of Geralt of Rivia, Witcher professional, who is still looking for his lost wife and also has a role in an upcoming war between Nilfgaard and the Northern Kingdoms . A big to-do list, which players all in all a hundred hours must take.

The latter is new information that was recently told during a studio visit at CD Projekt Red in the Polish city of Warsaw. In what at times depressing about upcoming city is the beating heart of the famous RPG series, of which the third part proudly ranks among the most popular games of 2015. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt stands after postponed twice are finally on the calendar, May 19 as the release date. And then those players waiting so a role-playing game that seems to be larger and more comprehensive than its predecessors. Also it may be, because this fall is the new standard for RPGs with a similar fantasy setting of course put quite high by Dragon Age: Inquisition, which threw high worldwide.

Of course let The Witcher 3 and Dragon Age are at various points in fact do not compare. In one game, you have a central hero and the history is important, as you have at your disposal in the other a whole team and the story is much more restricted to the game itself. Know who or what Geralt is, what the Wild Hunt is and who the other protagonists in The Witcher franchise is certainly not a luxury. Part three is more or less up where part two left off and that means back many familiar characters. As we saw in movies alongside Geralt, Triss Merigold and Dandelion also been popping up, and that for The Witcher players obviously familiar names.


Still, there is enough attention to new characters, the most striking example of the young Witcher Ciri. Geralt and his old master Vesemir know Ciri of their years at the School of the Wolf “, the place where witchers are trained. The Witcher 3 begins with a flashback that Geralt experience in a dream. In his dream Ciri is captured by the ‘Wild Hunt’, the mysterious, destructive gang of fighters where Geralt is already longer hunt. The dream is not literally according to the truth, but Geralt does give the idea that Ciri in trouble could sit. And as we all know by presentations at E3 and Gamescom: there could have our gray best friend once right in.

Of the remainder of that part of the story we got nothing in Warsaw. On the menu was about three hours of hands-on time with the game, where the prologue of the game was played and a single mission later in the story was to try to see another part of the game world. Of course you can in three hours not to mention a good impression of the story. Various figures that are important later, we have not even seen. And that is something a good thing, because the gamer in us has little ears to the story of The Witcher 3 already too spoilen.
