The bird wrenches in the eye socket; squelches and snappings emanate from the cavity just before it spews out the back of the skull. My jaw was already agape in petrified adulation, but this was just the appetizer for the big news found in the pre-E3 trailer for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, released today.
The real shrimp and lobster of the video came at its end – The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, February 24, 2015.
Finally, a release date for the most anticipated RPG of the near future. This was all revealed via press conference by CD Projekt Red at 2 pm ET today.
This came with the announcement that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is now available to be pre-ordered here!
It was accompanied with news that the standard edition of the game will come with additional items such as stickers, a game map, Witcher Universe-The Compendium, and a game soundtrack.
The collector’s edition contains everything found in the standard edition and features a four-pound polystone statuette of the game’s hero, Geralt, battling a gryphon; a medallion; a one-of-a-kind steel box; and a 200-page art book, all of which are contained in a collector’s box.
The trailer broke a long lull in information or content from the developer since news of its delay from a fall 2014 release earlier this year. The trailer contains many hints at what will be featured in the upcoming game. Graphically, it appears to be a masterpiece. The cut scene visuals look nothing short of magical.
In the trailer a behemoth bear is displayed in attack mode, and each strand of its brown fur can be seen waving independently as it charges the camera. With the footage appearing to be in-game, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt looks to deliver a rich graphical experience.
A tidbit of story is revealed as a ruler tells of a mysterious woman who has returned after many years and has the ever sadistic wild hunt chasing her. Geralt is charged with locating her so that the royalty may give her what she deserves.
A foreboding voice hints at a prophecy and an element of choice in the game’s storyline. Warning: Every decision you make will bring devastation. Each choice will lead to a greater evil.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
