Witcher 3 - News Roundup

by Couchpotato, 2013-08-23 01:10:00

The next article and video ask the one question on most gamers mind. Just how big is the open world of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt?


How's 100 hours of gameplay for huge? We were told that The Witcher 3's world is 35 times bigger than that of The Witcher 2. In fact, just one of the islands in the world of The Witcher 3 is bigger than the whole world of its predecessor.

In this world you'll find a blend of their main story, sidequests, varied encounters, and vast lands. Main character Geralt will walk, run, jump, climb, and swim through his freely explorable environment, and if that doesn't take him far enough, he can ride horses, take boats and more. There are no artificial barriers -- if you can see it, you can go to it. 

But a big world is pointless without something to do in it. The developers have spent a lot of time making sure that this world is dotted with enough encounters and points of interest that you'll always have something to do. In a live demonstration, we saw that at any one point there's always at least a few things in the distance you can run up to and interact with.

Next Gamespot interviews Jakub Szamalek to discuss the specifics of the open world of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

And for last DSO Gaming has news of a possible Witcher adventure game. Oh and I almost forgot dont miss the new screenshots.
