In advance of next week’s arrival of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, CD Projekt RED have released the hugely anticipated game’s cinematic launch trailer.
The action role-playing game has already notched up an impressive number of accolades and the game certainly impressed during my preview session earlier this year.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is CD Projekt RED’s most ambitious endeavour up to date. Set within a truly open world, the game puts players in the role of a wandering bounty hunter and monster slayer, Geralt of Rivia. In The Witcher 3, Geralt takes on the greatest contract of his life – tracking down the Child of Prophecy, a living weapon that can alter the shape of the world.
The launch trailer, entitled “A Night to Remember”, has Geralt fulfilling a contract against a surprisingly different-looking opponent. Here we see The Witcher using his potions and abilities to thwart a very powerful foe. Not all is what it seems in the world of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is out on 19th May, for Xbox One, Windows PC, and PlayStation 4.
Watch this space for my review of the definitive version of the game on Windows PC, very soon.
