How To Play Witcher 3

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is more than "30.0 times larger" than previous Witcher games,[6][7] requiring players to sail by boat to some locations and ride by horseback to others. However, fast travelling around the areas of known locations is also possible.[8] The Witcher 3 has been described as "20% bigger than Skyrim".[9] Many actions the player performs affect the world; many of the quests have a number of options on how to complete them, and the outcomes differ. CD Projekt RED anticipates approximately 100 hours for the completion of the game,[10] 50 of them belonging to side quests, and 50 belonging to the main story line.[10] While similar to the previous Witcher games, Wild Hunt improved on several aspects from past games. Combat revolves around an action role-playing game system alongside the use of magic. The fighting system from previous games was significantly revamped. Wild Hunt introduces some new mechanics, such as Witcher-sense, combat on horseback and at sea, swimming underwater, and the use of a crossbow. Additionally, Geralt can jump, climb, and vault over smaller obstacles. The climbing mechanics were described as "not exactly" like Assassin's Creed, but "similar to what we have in Uncharted".[11] Item creation and potion brewing still remain as in previous games, but have been modified from The Witcher 2. The same five Witcher signs returned, but with each one having an alternative form that can be used.

Heroes of Witcher 3

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt follows directly from the events of The Witcher 2: Assassin of Kings. The game begins with Geralt's dream about Kaer Morhen, a demolished witcher school. Yennefer, a sorceress and his love interest, notifies Geralt of Ciri, a young female witcher in training and their adopted daughter, practicing without his permission. Geralt finds Ciri and brings her back to Vesemir, her teacher. However, the titular Wild Hunt, a phantom army whose appearance is the beginning of the end of the world, kidnaps Ciri. While Geralt wakes up, he realizes that it was just a bad dream and he is still on a journey to find Yennefer with his mentor Vesemir. While trying to find Yennefer in the Temerian village of White Orchard, Geralt comes in contact with Nilfgaardian commander named Peter Saar Gwynlew who tasks him into hunting down a Griffin in exchange for Yennefer's location. Yennefer finds Geralt and Vesemir after an incident in the tavern and tells Geralt that Emhyr var Emeris, the Emperor of Nilfgaard, has summoned him to Vizima, the capital of Temeria occupied by Nilfgaard. Along the way to Vizima, Geralt and Yennefer are ambushed by the Wild Hunt but Yennefer successfully teleports them away. In Vizima, Emhyr tasks Geralt to find the emperor's biological daughter, Ciri, who has returned with the Wild Hunt, the phantom army that intends to capture her and extract her Elder Blood powers.
