Evidently aware that The Witcher III: Wild Hunt may act as the first foray into the RPG series for some players, Polish studio CD Projekt Red have unveiled a new gameplay trailer for the upcoming threequel that provides a detailed rundown of the world, its eccentric inhabitants and the almighty quest that awaits you come May 19.
Wild Hunt will once again see you assume the role of Geralt of Rivia, a mercenary-for-hire imbued with the power to topple some of the most ferocious beats roaming the Northern Kingdoms. But with 200 hours of content in total, your time in the fantasy realm will see you explore an array of various activities and side-quests, which will have an impact on the world around you. Clear out a decimated village of monsters, for instance, and you’ll soon find that villagers will move begin to settle in the area, building shops for you to sell your battle trophies and the like.
Earlier this week, CD Projekt Red also lifted the curtain on two appropriately huge expansions for The Witcher III: Wild Hunt. Set to introduce 30 hours of new content in total, the first chapter, Hearts of Stone, will be released in October of this year, while the conclusive chapter (Blood and Wine) will hit shelves in the early stages of 2016. Both expansion packs will be available through the game’s season pass – priced at $24.99 – though it’s understood players will be able to pick up both pieces of DLC individually, too.
At long last, The Witcher III: Wild Hunt is nearing its May 19 release date on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, and judging by the reports of the title’s mammoth size and scope, it’s likely to contain enough content to keep us all ticking over when the industry winds down for its summer hiatus.
