CD Projekt RED officially announced an upcoming action role-playing video game, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt with a teaser.
Witcher 3 built on RPG-oriented ‘REDengine 3’, will take full advantage of the technical capabilities of modern hardware and will set a new standard for RPG visuals.
Watch the teaser after the jump:
The studio announced that ‘The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’ will be the final Witcher game from the studio. The game combines CD Projekt RED’s trademark decision-based storytelling flair with a living open world larger than any other in modern RPG history.
Adam Badowski, head of CD Project RED said: “People may ask if this is really going to be the last Witcher game. Yes, it is. Why? Because we believe that we should end the series on a high note.”
“Technology has progressed to where we can finally tell the story the way we want, with the visuals we want, in the world we imagined. This will be the ultimate fantasy RPG experience, and while we’re hardly out of stories to tell, we believe it’s time for us to look to new worlds and new horizons to keep pushing the boundaries of what we can create.”
“The captivating and nonlinear story of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt takes place in a rich, truly open world environment. A world which is thrilling to explore, full of daring adventures, momentous quests, memorable characters, and unique monsters.
Players will freely travel through woods, lakes, mountains, cities, and villages. Each region is inhabited by distinct populations with their own customs, legends and problems. The world of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is 30 times bigger than The Witcher 2,” said Badowski.
“Imagine playing a dark fantasy game with the same great nonlinear story as in the previous Witcher titles, but now told in a world you can explore freely with no artificial boundaries. The war-ravaged world is so huge that to reach further places you will need to ride a horse or sail a boat to get there.
A world where your choices have truly epic consequences. From the development side, this goal is extremely demanding. Our team had to make significant design changes and our tech had to be rebuilt. But we believe that this will lead to a completely new level of nonlinearity and a whole new, richer gaming experience.
As a gamer, I would love to play this kind of RPG and I think this is what many players are waiting for. This is our dream come true at CD Projekt RED, and we hope it will be the same for you!” added Badowski.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be released in 2014 simultaneously on all high-end platforms.
