New Details on The Witcher 3′s Story-Driven, Open World

New details have surfaced regarding The Witcher 3‘s story-driven, open world. The setting will change depending not only on the player’s actions while completing Geralt’s personal storyline, but also based on his involvement in major local plotlines.

Both the main story and sideplots will interact with each other and the world, resulting in a nonlinear experience that should entertain multiple playthroughs. The main narrative accounts for around 50 hours of gameplay in one playthrough, and the additional stories add another 50 hours, adding up to around 100 hours of total gaming time.

Adam Badowski, head of CD Projekt RED studio, said:

“The Witcher 3 is full of impactful decisions, and gamers will choose between storylines that exclude one another in a single playthrough, ensuring extensive replay value. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt crowns the trilogy with the main narrative, revolving around Geralt’s search for his loved ones and his conflict with the Wild Hunt. As players travel through the game, they visit lands with their own unique atmosphere, communities and memorable characters. CD Projekt RED didn’t create an open world with a singular theme, but concentrated on delivering diversified and engaging environments, 30 times larger than those in The Witcher 2.”

for the moment, red project never disappointed me, and i’m eager to play this one (and cyberpunk 2077) on PC !

Right now, I like everything I’m hearing about the game, and since I LOVED the first two games, it is difficult not to be excited. That said, it’s not like any developer is infallible, and a certain other developer that I’m sure we can all guess, has certainly taught me the dangers of getting too excited by what is said in preview material.

I’m in agreement with everyone. Love everything they’ve done so far (although the arm wrestling sucked. I’ve done it competion and just for money). That aside, can’t wait to get my greedy little hands on both games coming out.

The witcher has always sounded awesome. I just wish they’d release the previous games on the new consoles along with the new one.

The CDPrjokey Iron Shiek Class.

Seriously, these guys know how to push all the right buttons. Will wait to see how it pans out, but so far they are once again doing everything right.
