CD Projekt RED has released a teaser trailer for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, the final part of the Witcher trilogy and the last Witcher game the studio intends to develop.
In addition to this we’ve also got screens from the GameInformer reveal of the title, showing some of the environments we’ll be traipsing around as we explore The Witcher 3’s vast world.
"The captivating and nonlinear story of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt takes place in a rich, truly open world environment," said CD Projekt RED boss Adam Badowski. “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 nonlinear story as in the previous Witcher titles, but now told in a world you can explore freely with no artificial boundaries,” Badowski continued.
“The war-ravaged world is so huge that to reach further 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 nonlinearity 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!"
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt hits “all high-end platforms” in 2014.
