Today developer CD Projekt Red, the folks behind the terrific Witcher series and the currently in-development Cyberpunk, released the opening cinematic for their upcoming open world role playing game, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
While the cinematic isn’t as exciting and jaw dropping as the one that opened The Witcher 2, it is still a solid opening for a game and one that is far more intriguing than the previous. The trailer showcases two perspectives, that of series protagonist Geralt of Rivia as he reads the tracks left behind by a mysterious sorceress, and that of the sorceress as she made the tracks. Those familiar with the original Polish book series and previous games will know who it is Geralt is tracking, but I will leave it out for those unfamiliar.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt releases in February of 2015.
