Here’s a new clip of gameplay from CD Projekt‘s highly anticipated The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
The Witcher 3 is an open world action game that centres around series Protagonist Geralt of Rivia (The Witcher) whose backstory has been detailed in previous games, The Witcher and The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings. This will be the conclusion of Geralt‘s story.
According to the developers the map is “30 times larger” than prior installments and is even “20% bigger than Skyrim“. The game features Realistic AI, a dynamic day and night system, and dynamic environments. The game is also the first, to our knowledge, that includes a dynamic beard growth system, for all you hipsters out there, whereby Geralt’s facial hair will grow while you are travelling, and it won’t always grow the same. Perhaps it will be messier if you’ve been battling a lot of enemies for example. There will be a variety of different actions you can take to alter outcomes and players will see clear changes to the world throughout the game.
Here’s a couple of minutes of gameplay with Ciri, Geralt‘s apprentice Witcher. Ciri will introduce new magic and abilities to the series.
CD Projekt estimates the main story will be around 100 hours long, give or take some of the different scenarios that develop due to the choices you make.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is scheduled for release on Windows, Xbox One and Playstation 4 on May 19th
