The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Will Have 36 Different Endings, No Load Times, and More | Interview

OnlySP: After seeing a breathtaking 45 minute presentation for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt at E3 (of which you can expect a write-up soon), I was able to catch up with gameplay producer Marek Ziemak for a juicy interview about the game. Topics included load times, multiple endings, the game going multi-platform and the voice acting process, among others. Sharpen your swords as we dive in.

Those guys are crazy. This could turn out to be either one of the biggest RPG's or one of the most overhyped games ever. Judging by the latest trailer, I'm expecting the former at the moment. It really does look as good as they suggest it to be.

PockyKing1769d ago

Have you played the first two? These guys know what they're doing, don't worry.

PraxxtorCruel1769d ago

I'm not playing 36 times to experience 36 endings. That is crazy. I wish there was an easier way of doing this!

Buying it on PC because it will have mod support :D

elhebbo161769d ago

@PraxxtorCruel that is one of the most laziest excuse of not liking a game that I've ever heard.

Mr Tretton1769d ago

@Praxxtor, just watch the other 35 endings on the internet. :)

Buy this game on so the developers gets 100 percent of the Profit from the game. Thats where i buy all my witcher games and i never forgave steam for censoring the first witcher. So im not sure what mature content will be in witcher 3 just to be sure buy it on

The first two games are incredibly good, and they both have a lot of variety and replayability.

Just so people know, the bit about "36 endings" probably refers to 36 ending sequences, not 36 distinct endings. What I imagine they'll do is something similar to Fallout, where your actions with each city, each faction, and each major event is highlighted in the ending.

So (I'm just spitballing here) there might be six sections to the ending, and six different variables for each particular section.

Here's hoping they can pull this off well and avoid pulling a Bioware. An actual quote from a developer at Bioware prior to the release of Mass Effect 3: "This story arc is coming to an end with this game. That means the endings can be a lot more different. At this point we’re taking into
account so many decisions that you’ve made as a player and reflecting a lot of that stuff. It’s not even in any way like the traditional game
endings, where you can say how many endings there are or whether you got ending A, B, or C.”
Even after the release of the extended cut, to this day there are really only 4 endings, none of them much more preferable than another.

Cant wait for this game its going to be epic.

chcolatesnw1769d ago

lol they should delay the xbox one version release date until xbox one officially releases in poland. that should teach ms that murica =\= world

ElementX1769d ago

How do you know the One won't be released in Poland by the current release date?

ElementX1769d ago

I mean the release date of the game, not the console. The game is coming out sometime next year and Poland may have the One by that time.

Pintheshadows1769d ago

It has been confirmed that the One will not have released in Poland by the time The Witcher 3 is out.

xtremexx1769d ago

36 different endings? guess im gonna have to do 36 different playthroughs (not like i wasnt going to anyway).

no load times? how the f**k is that gonna happen? if it actually works, that would be amazing.

PockyKing1769d ago

Takes 50 hours just to complete the main quest, so 50x36=1800 hours of gameplay if you want each ending lol. Just don't be surprised if someone tells you, you have no life. Hopefully the plat trophy doesn't need all 36 endings, I'd feel damn sorry for the poor sap who goes after that haha.

ElementX1769d ago

Just save your game a lot and reload different parts where you make critical decisions and continue from there. Actually I never play through games multiple times, I'll sometimes start a second play through but I always end up buying something new to play.
