In a lonely swamp, brown with rot, a lone man wanders, his desire burning with the hunt of a missing woman. Geralt of Rivia is that man, and this is the setting for the new combat demo released for the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
The game’s hero, Geralt, finds a mute boy, who leads him deeper into the water-soaked abyss until he is attacked by its Lovecraftian denizens. The combat demo displays Geralt’s ability to switch sword types and the spell casting menu wheel, which pauses play to allow players to select a spell.
This shows the game is taking influence from old school RPG’s by allowing players to slow combat to plan attacks and spell use strategically. Any fan of the Baldur’s Gate series will rejoice triumphantly at this good omen.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be available on February 27, 2015, and will be released on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
