has been in the news a fair bit
lately, and while the latest deep-dive video gives us more juicy eyes on what to expect from the game, character creation and the decision to go all-in on the game's first-person perspective have emerged as the top talking points.
<script></script> PC Gamer
has collated all the information around this, including highlighting that sex scenes will also be presented in first-person and that the only time you'll see any third-person view of yourself will be in reflections and while using vehicles, though your perspective in vehicles looks like player-choice as well.
Our very own interview with Lead Quest Designer, Paweł Sasko
, hinted at such -- especially where cut-scenes are concerned.
“It's one of the things we’ve done with our scene system, and we’ve reworked it completely from the ground up. People we’re saying [that] our scene system [for The Witcher 3
was] one of the most advanced scene systems ever created, and frankly we [threw] it away and made a new one that is even better. We’ve just reworked it completely, and one of the reasons you will walk in the city and see all of those scenes happening all around you, and you go and talk to Placide, and Placide moves and talks to this woman and then to the vendor, and you move on and there are all these people around you. We can do all of that thanks to our scene system, and it’s really... it's all seamless, right, so it doesn't cut from one to another."
So there you have it, the game will be entirely a first-person experience as a means to sell you fully into the world and, honestly, we're not sure why a few people have their panties in a bunch over the decision.
