When The Witcher 2 came out for Xbox 360 last year, many players were overwhelmed with its awesome depth, as it provided hours worth of exciting content in a fantastic fantasy world. But apparently, according to the game’s development team at CD Projekt Red, we haven’t seen anything yet.
Game Informer has revealed the exclusive for its published March issue, and it’s none other than The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, the latest from the famed developer. The game will put the sword-carrying hero from the previous game into a bigger open world adventure, one that will span thirty times the size of the original – no small feat, for sure.
The game will also feature a much more epic storyline, one filled with plenty of choices and consequences. You can expect a smoother action system as well, with stylish sword swipes aplenty.
The game is currently slated for a 2014 release, and no particular platforms have been mentioned yet, leading some speculation that it could be a next-gen release. We’ll report more info as we get it.
Meanwhile, you can watch a brief preview of the game in development through the video piece here, also produced by Game Informer.
Of course, we’ll have plenty more on Wild Hunt as we near its spring debut, and you can pre-order Prima’s official strategy guide right now.
The official standard edition game guide and eguide provide a comprehensive walkthrough to help make decisions, navigate the vast area of the Northern Kingdoms, and reach the ending you want. The collector’s edition adds even more detail, with 48 pages of bonus content.
