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 :-)

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?

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.
