AusGamers caught up with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's game director, Konrad Tomaszkiewicz, who gave us a fair amount of detail regarding the game's zones, and how defeating monsters is only half the challenge, revealing replayability in the hunting aspect while also touching on combat and more.
"The monsters are there for that purpose, that you can always barter and try to defeat them," he explains about zone and monster replayabilty. "Because probably, toward the end of the game it will be hard to defeat them. Also, you’ve got many, many small encounters in the world, each based on small stories, and every story is quite interesting.
"We’ve really got a lot of them, and we wanted to make the world living; we want to give you the faith that these characters are really in the world and they have their goals to do, and you can hunt for them or not. It’s more story-driven, not generic quests like in other games."
The full interview talks more about combat, horseback combat, how the progression system works, dynamic outcomes based on small decisions, crafting story in an open-world and much more.
