“Listen to a wandering preacher spin the tale of how magic came to be and how the vagabond monster hunters known as witchers fit into the universe of the upcoming open world, fantasy RPG – The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.” (YouTube)
I love this style of storytelling. The preacher recounts how the nefarious force of magic arrived, and who the witchers are. It’s fantastically animated and narrated, and really draws you into the world.
Along with this, there are two new trailers (below the break) for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, one called Elder Blood, and one a brand new 15 minute gameplay trailer. Elder Blood mentions some of the plot of The Witcher 3, and how the character of Ciri fits into it, whereas the gameplay trailer is just that, showing off actual gameplay of early areas of the game. It cuts quite a lot between different segments, but it clearly shows the beauty and vastness of the world, as well as the dangers within it. It looks gorgeous, though you’ll need a beast of a machine to run it on maximum graphical settings.
Incredible stuff. Onwards!
