A new batch of previews out of a handful of German publications have revealed reportedly some new details on CD Projekt RED's recently announced open world RPG, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

According to the forum folk at NeoGAF key takeaways from the articles include some of the following:
  • The main story is 50 hours long (we're guessing the interpretation might be a little off here, and suspect it means that the average playthrough will be 50 hours).
  • Save games can be imported and will affect character relationships, but not the core story.
  • The game will have 36 possible final states, with three different epilogues that are each an hour long.
  • Geralt can now climb the environment more freely, and for the first time, jump.
  • Wild animals can be hunted for resources, and a day night cycle and weather system will affect accessibility of the environment.
  • New magic abilities include taming wild horses with Axii.
  • There will be separate user interfaces for the PC and console versions.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is due in 2014 on PC, PlayStation 4 and "other high end consoles" (read new Xbox).

I like how this is turning out, only thing I didn't like from the NeoGAF link is this: there is a new mechanic, which is similar to VATS from Fallout 3. You can aim at the specific parts of monsters bodies in slow-mo. I really hope this will be optional

Needless to say I'm very excited about this, I've got the first 2 games in the series just recently and loving the story so far. Truly amazing games overall.

Keep up the good work CDPR my wallet is ready :-)

Looking forward to more info, screenshots and video. Lets hope they do the game justice that it deserves.

Didnt like #1 and havent got #2 yet but really should grab it on sale despite not being a RPG fan.

Was never a big fan of the VATS system and felt like a cheap autoaim feature. Although i didnt like using it, i felt kinda forced to as accuracy without it from medium-long range was s***house IMO.

if you don't like rpg's and didn't like the first one then why bother with number 2?

do you think it isn't an rpg as well

Just because im not a RPG fan, doesnt mean i dont enjoy some RPG games. I enjoyed neverwinter nights 1+2, titan quest, diablo 1+2, dungeon siege 1+2.

Also, no apostrophe in rpg's.
