Compared to the earlier two games, the The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt is much bigger and expansive in terms of content, says the developer.
“In the first game we explored the storyline and focused on making the game into a franchise. The second game was quite different because we introduced more characters and increased the size of the world, thereby allowing players to explore more as they continued to follow the storyline. The new game will be a mix of both its predecessors and because of the effort that we have invested into it, we felt that it should reach a wider audience”, the team at CD Projekt RED said.
On Playstation 4 Finally!
The second game The Witcher 2 was available only on the PC and the Xbox 360 platform. The gaming industry has changed much since then and with the launch of the new gen consoles Xbox One, Playstation 4, it has become mandatory for every developer to make their mark on these platforms. It would help them establish themselves as a strong contender in the upcoming race which is going to run for at least the next six years or so.
“But, we are not competing with anyone else or trying to make a mark in the industry. Rather, we believe that the The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt has plenty of content and new things to explore which is something every gamer should enjoy. If it is not on the Playstation 4, it wouldn’t be justified which is why we decided to reach a wider audience this time. Moreover, it is only the next gen consoles that gave us the freedom to reach heights and do much more than we used to do”, they clarified.
Open World like Never Before
The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt is an open world game which we have already deduced from multiple game play trailers, developer diaries and more. It looks gorgeous and definitely to be a title that defines the power of the next gen consoles. On PC, it is going to be much better because we expect it to push to 4K and the graphical capabilities of the platform to the farthest possible extent in 2015. During the interview the developers said, “It is going to be really open world but we were marred by technical limitations in the past as well as the experience and the size of the team. Things have changed and now we are able to realize the dream that has been so long in our mind”.
The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt releases on February 24, 2015.
