Follow the trail of The Wild Hunt

Wticher 3 wild hunt

The Witcher 3 just can’t come soon enough. Then again, I’m hoping to finish reading all the books before the game launches, so this extra reading time is sort of helpful for me. The books are helping me understand more about the lore of the game, and makes me even more wary of The Wild Hunt.

Over on The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt website, they’re teasing that people must follow the trail and discover the secret. Other than that, there are just a bunch of social media widgets – nothing to see yet. I’m assuming that we will follow the trail to an eventual new teaser trailer, or maybe even a playable demo. For now, though, I feel like I’m getting whipped up to join The Wild Hunt – I’m on the trail and excited without knowing what I’m excited for.

Here’s hoping that it’s a more unconventional promotion. Maybe it’s a YouTube adventure, where you follow various links and end up learning more about the game. Or maybe it could be a series of puzzles to solve, using all of Geralt’s abilities to overcome your foes and uncover the truth. For now, it just feels like a vague attempt at building hype for a game that is only coming in a few months. I refuse to get excited just yet. Okay, I was already excited, but I refuse to let this contribute to that excitement. I’ll just keep reading the books to satisfy my Geralt urges.

Is the Witcher 3 your most anticipated game? Are you ignoring all other epic games until it comes, or are you happily enjoying the current resurgence of deep, detailed and gorgeous RPGs?

Wielding my lasso of truth, I am the combination of nerd passion and grammar nazi. I delve into all things awesome and geek-tastic. I believe people should stop defining themselves and just enjoy playing games, so let’s get on with it!

    …cue the Ryanza comments in 3….2…..1……

    • Hammersteyn

      At least his games coming out #staystrongUmar

      • Admiral Chief 0

        BWAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHHA

        Shame dude, dem feels

      • Ryanza

        It’s not my game but a game for everybody. #NoDRM.

        • Hammersteyn

          Umar is the most vocal guy behind the last guardian on the comments section and you for Witcher 3 is what I meant.

          • Ryanza

            I know. I just had to promote the game some how.

          • Hammersteyn

            Hell I’m buying it day one.

          • Mossel

            I’m also a big Witcher fan, but something I’m really looking forward to is GOG Galaxy! I think that might even replace steam for me someday… (GabeN if you are reading this…DONT PUNISH ME! I know not what I speak of and my faith is weak!)

          • Admiral Chief 0

            Gabe just sent me a message on Steam, he is very disappointed with you…

      • Cadis Etrama Di Umar

        Ouch!!! Its still coming okay 🙁

        • Hammersteyn

          Hehe, sorry man

        • #belieberfan

      • OUCH!

    • Ryanza

      Now I don’t know what to say.

    • Spaffy

      If this game fails we’ll probably never see Ryanza again

      • Ryanza

        lol. If the game sucks, I’ll be trashing the game for years to comes.

        Next game to promote and hype is Cyberpunk 2077.

        Oh yes. By the way. The Witcher 3 will not fail.

        • Spaffy

          btw, are you RyanZA? Or just copying his name

          • Ryanza

            I’m Ryanza not RyanZA. And when your name is Ryan and you live in South Africa there will be lots of Ryanza’s like RyAnZa.

          • Spaffy

            Just asking. Used to be a guy on XDA back in the day that wrote apps and stuff.
            Wanted to check if it’s the same guy.

          • Ryanza

            Don’t google me. And no not me. There will be a Ryanza everywhere. I think there was a Ryanza who used to comment on here long before I started commenting on here.

          • Spaffy

            Why don’t you have a disqus account?

          • Mossel

            Disqus requires you to be always online! xD

          • Spaffy

            oh, right 😀

          • Ryanza

            No reason. I only like comment on here. Don’t need it. Not serious about my comments. And there’s stats. I will get obsessed with number of comments vs number of likes. So let me just stay drm-free

          • Spaffy

            I hear you.
            *checks comment to like ratio

          • Ryanza

            There have some likes.

          • Spaffy

            Oh you 😛

          • Ryanza

            I will give likes to those who buy The Witcher 3 on release day.

          • Spaffy

            Pre-ordered long ago 😀

          • Admiral Chief 0

            LOOOOOL

          • Admiral Chief 0

            Disqus Rights Management

            😛

        • Dark

          Hope you got Fabian’s signature at Rage we flew him over from CD Projekt Red 🙂

          • Ryanza

            I have a feeling that batman interviewed Fabian. So waiting for that.

  • Cadis Etrama Di Umar

    Is that Witcher 3 or Hannibal?Holy F***

  • Admiral Chief 0

    (refresh for pic)

    • Hammersteyn

      GOG FTW

      • Admiral Chief 0

        XD

    • Captain JJ Underleyened

      Is their client out yet?

      • Ryanza

        No. maybe just before The Witcher 3 is released. I think they want to handle achievements with the client for the game.

        • Captain JJ Underleyened

          Really looking forward to that.

      • Kensei Seraph – Staff

        They have a very basic alpha version of the client being used for The Witcher Adventure Game Beta, or at least they did a few weeks ago.

    • Kensei Seraph – Staff

      You have some good tastes there.

    • Jedi Consular Kromas

      Can’t screeny my pre-order cause it is a box. A big box full of epic goodness that made my wallet cry for weeks.

      • Captain JJ Underleyened

        I’ll probably also opt for a hard copy for Witcher.

        • Jedi Consular Kromas

          With the statue and the medal and the books and the soundtrack and the pure gamer collectable bliss.

          • Captain JJ Underleyened

            Agreed. Where did you order yours?

          • Admiral Chief 0

            Agreed, magical!

        • Admiral Chief 0

          I didn’t pay for mine…

          • Spaffy

            Rub. It. In.

          • Admiral Chief 0

            rub-a-rub-rub

          • Ryanza

            Yeah you need to pay it forward. Buy the game and give it away. Spread the Witcher love.

          • Admiral Chief 0

            I need to upgrade my CPU first :/

          • Ryanza

            My cpu is so old but still don’t have reason to upgrade. So far I’m waiting for The Witcher 3 to see if I need to upgrade shit.

          • Admiral Chief 0

            Look, I can run it, I just want to be certain I can run it in all its magnificent glory!

          • Captain JJ Underleyened

            Yea, but you live in Pretoria, so I still win ;P

          • Admiral Chief 0

            How is it a win for you? SnorCity ftw!

        • Mossel

          Hard copy means no Steam…just so you know.

          • Captain JJ Underleyened

            No hard copy for me, thanks

    • Captain JJ Underleyened

      Everyone needs some Fallout (and of course TA is a must for me)

  • Ryanza

    In the source code maybe a clue, “ice”, “sodden”, “glamour”.

    • Hammersteyn

      Frozen probably had the same words

    • Ryanza

      Looking for a trail. Ice which is solid. Sodden is like surrounded by water. Glamour is like magic, enchantment.

      So the next trailer will either be finding someone who is frozen and using magic to melt the ice or a fight where water is used to turn someone into an ice cube.

      Yennefer is a powerful Sorceresses. So the trailer will feature Yennefer.

      all just guess work.

  • Captain JJ Underleyened

    Was reading my Witcher comics last night and came across that badass thing in the header.

  • oVg

    I hope the combat is as fluid as Shadow of Mordor. Fore some reason that casual combo chaining is actually quite addictive. Stoping to bring up a wheel to throw traps and bombs might be a little step back for me.

    As long as those slow mo head decapitations are done the same way as Talion then Im in.

    • Hammersteyn

      I encounter problems when I need to tap X, doesn’t always work, ? works fine though.

    • Ryanza

      Don’t expect that arcade type combat from Mordor in The Witcher 3. Cd Projekt Red got like a sword expert to get stances and sword techniques mapped out.

      There should be a button to flip through the signs to prevent opening the wheel.

    • Travis

      Oh no, i hope the combat is nothing like SoM.

  • Viking Of Divinity

    So. Still playing Divinity Original Sin…. Still Awesome.

  • Kensei Seraph – Staff

    I’m enjoying the rebirth of the RPG genre, and with The Witcher 3 coming next year it will likely just keep getting better as everyone else tries to compete.

    • Captain JJ Underleyened

      Tries really really hard.

  • Lardus-Resident Perve

    Not waiting for this game. I would love to play the first two first, but can’t get them. Waiting for DA:I and NBA2k16

  • Ryanza

    So all the hidden words found so far:

    Betrayal
    Aedirm
    Jam
    Ice
    Sodden
    Glamour

    Make me a sandwich (jam) bitch (glamour) and whiskey (sodden) met eish ya (ice). Why is there mayo on the sandwich – betrayal. Cold day in Aedirm.

    Check the source code for the page. There might be new words added. Follow the trail.
