Of all the games coming in the next few months, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has to be the most anticipated. It is an enormous game and I know plenty of you are amped about continuing the story and killing all the things. However, the open world experience is built to be amazing.
Here is the developer diary all about making the open world:
For the non-video viewers, not only are we treated to some glorious images of the game, we also get insight into just how detailed the world is. There are various points of interest littered around the world, each one hand crafted and given its own lore. The major cities have unique inhabitants; they don’t just greet Geralt in their own way, they will have their own reactions to weather, Geralt drawing his sword or even ambient conversation where they gossip about his previous deeds. The day-night cycle changes monster spawning and the experience players might have in the game.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt looks far too gorgeous, and the detail of the game is beyond impressive. I love the idea that each point of interest has its own lore, that each personality in a city is unique. It adds so much to the immersion in the game and makes it feel like a truly epic experience.
Have you already ordered your copy of the game? Are you grabbing it DRM-free through GoG.com or will you opt for a console or Steam version of it? Which aspect is looking the best to you?
