Over the weekend, CD Projekt RED released some concept art and a new batch of screenshots for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, offering glimpses of a few of the environments from the game that ambitiously promises to take the series into an expansive open world.
The assets also accompanied an official fact sheet, which features an exhaustive bullet-point list of game features, sure to tickle the fancy of any Witcher fan.
The world is in chaos. The air is thick with tension and the smoke of burned villages. The fearsome Nilfgaardian Empire has struck again, ravaging the hapless Northern Kingdoms. The once mighty who tried to use Geralt are dead or gone. These are uncertain times and no one can say who will rise or fall, who will bring peace to the world and who will bring only misery.
But a force darker and deadlier has appeared. Little do the petty men and women moving their tin-plated armies across the Northern Kingdoms know that their conflict is mere child’s play compared with another otherworldly danger which now looms closer than ever. This brooding danger lusts after one thing: that which matters most to Geralt, that which is dearest to his heart.
