CDProjekt Red set the gritty, dark tone for The Witcher 3 early in the demo I saw at E3. A young woman is savagely beaten and prepared to be hung by a group of three guards. Geralt of Rivia and a companion, a large troll head slung messily on the Witcher's horse, ride in on the grisly spectacle. The Witcher is seeking bounty money for the troll head. He quickly accepts coin from the guards and continues on his way.
