The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Multiple Hidden Characters Uncovered

"The developers of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt don’t have to come out and explicitly confirm which characters are going to appear in the upcoming game." (PC, PS4, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Xbox One)

You missed one, go frame by frame when you see Geralt on a horse with about 4 other guys on horses in a group. The mutant blistery baby-thing is riding with Geralt, in front of him.

I noticed that as well. Thought i was going crazy or blind. then I paused and repeated it. although I could not get a good pause to see better.

I was at first thinking it was some kind of decapitated head trophy sitting on his lap! LMAO.

One thing that I did notice after a few watches,when that reddish,brown "bear" is charging towards Geralt, you can see Geralt quickly raises his left hand,aiming a crossbow.

I had seen the GDC presentation slides where it showed what appeared to be a crossbow on his back,that sure as hell looked like a crossbow to me.

A lot of fans either disapprove completely,are still torn about the idea or are slowly warming to the thought of Geralt shooting a crossbow lol.

Some suggest it is lore breaking. In combat,it is not described for witcher but for hunting,I believe bows and/or crossbows were used.

I use "PotPlayer" (it's great) formerly known as "KMPlayer(?)."

I bound keys to advance one frame and go back one.
To repeat there's A to B or you can just click on the progress bar to repeat over and over and see what these speedy trailers hide.

I heard they have a crossbow so he can fight some flying enemies better.

Yes, I saw that hidden message. A brilliant idea and tactic to have those hidden texts within their trailers.

I was also surprised to see that he can dive under water!! the devs said only swim up until this point,so that is going to open up a whole other dimension to the game.Certainly adds a lot more exploration and adventure opportunities.

Crossbow is a great tool to combat flying menaces,it's following the book lore that has so many fans in a uproar.

Another thing that has me excited is the return of torches! A small detail but to me, it is really cool. I love exploring caves and catacombs with a torch in one hand,sword in the other,the ambient light of the flames producing shadows.

I use GOM player and KM player myself. I will have to look check out Pot player. I've heard of it before just never used it. I'm not sure if Pot Player was formerly KM,because they are still actively updating KM player.

Ciri looks a bit older than she should be. I don't mean the white hair, just her face. Maybe the hair is messing with my perception. Though, since Sorceresses don't "age" that might have something to do with it also, since Yennefer looks younger.

Or I am just seeing things:P

Haven't finished the books yet so maybe I've missed some things. Still working on Times of Contempt.

I'd add it also looks like that scene may of been using their cgi tech they talked about? I am not certain.

The only reason I bring that up is because if you look closely,like at the scene with Geralt and the griffon,he appears to look a bit different in the face.

Hey,maybe,another possibility could be that it was a flash-forward in time? lol. I am throwing impulsive guesswork to the wind.
