The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - will be the final episode in the Witcher trilogy. For the first time ever in the series, TW3 will also offer an open world that's said to be at least 30 times bigger than The Witcher 2. According to Badowski, players will be able to freely travel through the environment, made up of woods, lakes, mountains, cities, and villages to explore. Not unlike the world in Andrej Sapkowski's books, each region in The Witcher 3 is inhabited by distinct populations with their own customs, legends, and problems for you to solve in the form of quests.
The war-ravaged world is so huge that to reach further places you will need to ride a horse or sail a boat to get there. A world where your choices have truly epic consequences. From the development side, this goal is extremely demanding. The team had to make significant design changes and the tech had to be rebuilt.
In addition to the open world environment, players will be able to traverse the world upon a mount. The Witcher 3 will also offer a new combat system. The developer boasts that there will be "no Quick Time Events, only intuitive RPG gameplay." The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is supposed to release in 2014 for PC and next-gen consoles. Here's a teaser below.
