The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - News Roundup

by Couchpotato, 2014-06-17 05:27:12

Time for another round of news for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The news just never seems to end these last two weeks. So lets get started.

Up first I have a new Preview and Impression article from Entertainment Buddha.

In the demo, Geralt slays the spirit with little delay and returns towards the Ladies in order to collect his hard-earned payment. Upon collecting his payment, Geralt is granted the ability to see the true form of the three Ladies. More monster than woman, the grotesque Ladies finally reveal the location of the original woman Geralt seeks in a flashback.

Visually, the flashback is a cinematic treat. Once more, the game’s visuals steal the show, fully immersing the viewer into what is on the screen. The flashback reveals a white-haired woman, with a scar on her face, before sizzling into blackness, signifying the demo’s end.

All in all, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’s demo was one of the lengthiest and most impressive on display during E3 2014. It is clear the CDPR is attempting to outdo themselves once more with Wild Hunt, something that seems like a very real possibility.

Next Gamezone has information from E3 about remakes of The Witcher 1 or 2.

Unfortunately, as of right now there are no plans to bring the previous two Witcher games to Xbox One or PS4.

"I don't think so," lead producer Piotr Krzywonosiuk said when I asked him if they are considering a remake of the first two games. "All of our focus is on [The Witcher 3] Wild Hunt."

"And then we have some other things going on," he said, "one of them being Cyberpunk. So I don't think it's in the plans."

And for last another Preview/Interview video from Twinfinite.

Even though I’m not a fan of the first or second (not that I think they’re bad, I just never got into them), I’m really looking forward to Wild Hunt. I think it’ll be a great treat for fans of the series as well as those of us that love fantasy adventures. Check out my preview above as well as my interview with the game director for The Witcher 3.
