The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Will Offer 100 Hours Of Gameplay & Storytelling

Tough decisions, branching plotlines and massive replay value will be the order of the day in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, according to the latest update from CD Projekt RED.

“The Witcher 3 is full of impactful decisions, and gamers will choose between storylines that exclude one another in a single playthrough, ensuring extensive replay value," explained Adam Badowski, head of CD Projekt RED studio. "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt crowns the trilogy with the main narrative, revolving around Geralt’s search for his loved ones and his conflict with the Wild Hunt. As players travel through the game, they visit lands with their own unique atmosphere, communities and memorable characters. CD Projekt RED didn’t create an open world with a singular theme, but concentrated on delivering diversified and engaging environments, 30 times larger than those in The Witcher 2.”

"This setting changes depending on gamers’ actions not only when completing Geralt’s personal storyline, but also because of his involvement in major local plotlines in each land visited and many other carefully-designed side quests. All threads of this player-crafted tale interact with each other and the world, creating an even more nonlinear experience than ever before. The main narrative accounts for around 50 hours of gameplay in one playthrough, and the additional stories add another 50 hours of role playing, giving around 100 hours of total gaming time."

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is confirmed for a 2014 launch on PC and PS4. Presumably it will also some to Microsoft's next-gen console.

Okay, everyone needs to stop making games now.
I haven't taken the cellophane off Witcher 2 yet. It's been in the stack for about six months. Which puts it about halfway down the pile, I think - there's several games been there for over a year...

Actually, belay that - keep bringing the quality games thick and fast. Having a backlog and a glut of great games available for around £10-£20 is infinitely better than having a shortage! :D

I got one step further, I got about one hour in to Witcher 2. Sadly I don't really need any more games as I am a Black Ops 2 addict. I kinda hate myself for it, but there it is.

So many awesome games sat in a pile or installed by untouched.

Forced myself to take Black Ops out of my machine about a month ago. It wasn't easy to do - but the wife was complaining about the unplayed game stack (whereas the played games are more out of the way).

Of course that now means I'll be crap at the 4 recent maps when I put the disk back in.

You think that's bad? I've got a copy of the Witcher 2 for the Xbox still factory wrapped. I also have another copy of it on Steam; never played.

My backlog is ridiculous and I'm positive that I will never get around to playing half the games I own on both console and PC.

I ought to make a point of starting more of them, but I don't like starting new games when I'm working on something else as I feel it will divide my focus... which would be much worse than just not playing it at all... XD
