The Witcher 3 Shows What It Means To Kill Monsters

Get a taste of The Wild Hunt's mood.

What does it mean to kill monsters? Let The Witcher 3's Geralt of Rivia show you. He's had a long day, and it's about to get longer. But the real question is, what do you do when faced with a choice between two evils? This one's about as cheerful as a sack full of drowned clowns, but it does go a long way to showing you the kind of world Geralt lives in: morals be damned, live by the sword, and try not to add to the cruelty, if you can.

"A good plot should not mimic reality in the sense that you can finish each quest in a million different ways," said CD Projekt RED's John Mamais recently. "It's about unexpected twists or the feelings it evokes and not the sheer number of outcomes." Seldom has a trailer come so close to the vision. This will be an open world epic with a tightly crafted storyline, a difficult trick to pull off. But then, CD Projekt RED knows that believable situations are the key to a good story, and situations like the one depicted in the trailer are certainly believable.

No word on a precise launch date, beyond 2014, but when it does launch it will be for PC and next generation consoles.
