The development team behind the Witcher 3 have revealed that the newest release is set to be the most ambitious and unique yet as it aims to fix complexity issues some players experienced with the Witcher 2.
The Witcher series is single player focused RPG saga that has built a loyal fan base while gaining positive critical reception following two stellar releases thus far.
The latest in the series The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was unveiled at the recent E3 Expo with a mammoth 45 minutes demo reveal, nearly 3 times longer than the average. This was needed to get across all the new elements that were to make up The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
While the previous two iterations in the series of The Witcher and The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings were more linear focused the newest game in the series and first next gen release will have a more open world feel.
Production stepped up for Witcher 3
The title is set to be the most ambitious yet from CD Projekt RED, so much so that a new Polish studio based in Kraków has been set up with this game in mind along with future releases.
“A new studio, new people and new energy – we’re growing and we’re extremely excited that we can tap into the potential that Cracow has to offer. We want to continue to make better and better RPGs and the new studio is another big step in that direction. Cracow, one of the cultural and scientific centers of Europe, is a really special place that will leave a significant mark on our games.” Adam Badowski, head of CD Projekt RED, has outlined.
The new studio will take on the task of making sure the Witcher 3 meets the now lofty expectations of the gaming community.
Witcher 3 developer against DLC add-ons
In what is good news for gamers pockets, The Witcher 3 game designer Konrad Tomaszkiewicz has also been quoted expressing his disdain at the recent DLC culture sweeping video games.
In a recent interview he has been quoted as saying “………we believe patches, fixes and additional content should be provided to gamers free of charge. Only something REALLY big, and something that will not make you feel ripped off, justifies a price tag.”
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is slated to be released from Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 an Xbox One some time in 2014.
