The Witcher 3: New Details to Blow Your Mind


Ask anyone what games they’re looking forward to the most in 2014, and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will probably be on that list. Developer CD Projekt RED’s latest open-world action RPG was extremely well received at E3 2013, winning over 55 awards, and has since then been referred to as a true next-gen experience to look forward to. (PC, PS4, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Xbox One)

36 or more different endings x 50 hours for One playthrough equals approximatively 1800 hours of gameplay, not counting side-quests, and the fact that the game is 30 times the size of previous Witcher games..

Challenge accepted.

Who needs rest anyway. /s

Does this mean CDPR will take over my life for 3 months?
UltraNova  +   751d ago
Probably..Never played witcher before but i am looking forward playing this one! Gotta love RPGs

50 hours with one play through and not even considering side quests and the 36 different endings is just awesome. Definitely looking forward to this game

Once or twice will suffice for me. I normally take my first ending as 'my' ending. This game isn't like the Witcher 2 either, the game literally has two sets of content in it depending on your story choices. W3 ain't like that the devs have said.

It depends on what order you do the main quest that things happen in the story is all, some missions can get locked off due to story choices(which is fine). Since, unlike Skyrim the quests actually have you choosing between two sides.

Also the different endings in the Witcher 2 weren't hugely different. Just some characters live or die or else whatever you choose right at the end effects the ending prologue.

I get goosebumps just thinking about this game! Cannot wait.
sinspirit  +   751d ago
I own both Witcher 1 and 2... Every time I start Witcher 1 I put it down after a couple hours, forget to come back to it later, and I just so happened to have set Windows to factory settings deleting everything so I lost my save.
liquidhalos  +   751d ago
Oh my goodness, every article i read about this game gets me so excited for it. I may as well just write off a few months of my life for this one.

I simply cannot wait!

sounds like a pretty big game.

was thinking of checking out witcher 2.

Watched some gameplay and it seemed to be a lot of hacking and slashing of the same animation to bad guys.

I did like the look and atmosphere of it so I still need to read more into it.
starchild  +   751d ago
Just take my money, CDPR. The Witcher and The Witcher 2 are two of the finest games I have ever played. The Witcher 3 looks ambitious as hell, but if anybody can pull it off it's you guys.
starchild  +   751d ago
"It's a single-player experience all the way, but we are looking to release the REDkit sometime after the game launches for the modding community. This way, people can create their own adventures, and this will inevitably add a lot of fun and replayability to the game."

This is going to add so much life to the game. Mods are one of the best aspects of PC gaming.

Sounds like everything I could want from a new Witcher game. And it sounds like they're sticking to what they know with Cyberpunk, which is music to my ears. If there's some small MP element, a la Souls games, I don't mind, but they have stated that tight, story-driven singleplayer RPG experiences are their forte, which they're sticking to.
Hellsvacancy  +   751d ago
I thought this was Cyberpunk related for a moment

Third time I read this article in this past week, on three different sites. So no new details there.

So excited for this game! Currently playing through The Witcher 2 right now, and am loving it. Although, I do find the combat to be pretty damn difficult, even on normal settings. Not sure if I'm just bad at this brand of combat, or the combat is just super tough. Either way, I hope they address this in Wild Hunt because I feel like a punk playing on Easy lol

Alright, let's see how many PS4 exclusives (not on ANY other platform, including PC) with a Metacritic score of 75+...

1) Resogun

That's it. One.

If everyone had spent the price of the PS4 on a new GPU for their existing desktop, they could play all the hottest titles (except Resogun! D: ) on PS4 without losing backwards compatibility for all the PS1-3 and Xbox original/360.
g-nome  +   751d ago
And lose the ability to play the upcoming titles from Naughty Dog , Sucker Punch ... no thanks.
thejigisup  +   751d ago
I'd need more ram, a bigger case, a more capable power supply, a proper mouse, a new hdd, a good soundcard...tell me again how I'd not lose backwards compatibility with the ps1-3 and xbox original/360 games without pirating.

Could you please also let me know how to get all those ps4 exclusives that will be coming out over the course of the next year.
WikusVanDeMerwe  +   751d ago

You have just shown us all how you have the inability to stay on topic.

A big hand of applause for our contestant, anotherguy2.

Better luck next time.

Tip for next time: Don't antagonize people on how you think they should be spending their money.


Anyone looking for a good RPG/ open world game should be thrilled. They claim 100-120 hours per playthrough with all sidequests. Now that is some money well spent if multiple endings are as good as they claim.

Not once did you mention The Witcher 3

What the heck does that have to do with the article? Geez, nice discussing the witcher with you.
KillrateOmega  +   751d ago
What was the point of this comment? It has literally nothing to do with the article. It's just you jerking it to PC gaming.

Bubble Down for Off Topic.

You just joined a few hours ago. And you went through all that trouble just to troll. Typical of Bone fans on N4G.
ElementX  +   751d ago
Personally I don't play a game more than once, maybe twice. 35 endings is good for those who actually want to see them all however I think they're just wasting resources making them because a majority of users will only experience one or two and watch the rest on Youtube or something.
thejigisup  +   751d ago
I disagree with this just a bit here. I believe it really comes down to just how much your choices effect the way the story is played out. 35 endings just gives players more options and ensures a wide variety of how the game can end. If you and 5 friends play this game all of you may walk away with a totally different story/ending. If it's done right it wont feel like they just threw and extra 34 endings in there just for numbers sake. I felt that way with ME3 the separate endings didn't really change the game all that much for me but depending on how ambitious the witcher 3 is it may be well worth the investment to play it out a few more times.
anticlimax  +   751d ago
It's not just a game, it's a role playing game. If the choices you make don't influence the outcome then what's the role-playing aspect? They don't include multiple endings for replayability, but so that your choices matter.

Users replaying to get all the endings are doing it wrong: completionism is NOT role-playing.
DevilishSix  +   750d ago
Of course Witcher 3 looks Boss with a capital B, but what I find interesting is the developer has put alot of resources in this new engine and they want to sell this engine for other developers to use. Wonder how popular this engine may become this gen?

"Ask anyone what games they’re looking forward to the most in 2014, and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will probably be on that list."

- nope, not on my list... as far 2014 rpg's go, Dragon Age, Pillars of Eternity, and Destiny are my top 3.
