Game Profile - The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on PC

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is an upcoming action role-playing video game set in an open world environment, that is currently in development by Polish video game developer CD Projekt RED. It is scheduled to be released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on 24 February 2015. The game will be the third in the series, preceded by The Witcher and The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, which are based on the series of fantasy novels of the same title by the Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski.

The gameplay is similar to that of the previous installment. The Witcher 3 will introduce "a living open world larger than any other in modern RPG history." The setting is more than "30 times larger" than previous Witcher games, requiring players to catch a sailboat to some locations and ride by horseback to others. However, fast travelling around the areas of known locations is also possible. The Witcher 3 has been described as "20% bigger than Skyrim," Each action the player does will affect the world; every quest has a plethora of options on how to complete it, and every outcome is different each time. Combat, like the second game, revolves around an action RPG system combined with the use of magic, and a recent trailer displayed that dismemberment is present in the game. CD Projekt RED anticipates approximately 100 hours for the completion of the game, 50 of them belonging to side quests, and 50 belonging to the main story line. The game also features a dynamic day and night system, realistic AI, responsive and dynamic environments, and more.

The game was officially announced on February 4, 2013 via Game Informer, with a 2014 release on PC and "all high-end platforms available". The latter was then clarified to mean the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One. According to the official information from Microsoft, The Witcher 3 was originally not going to be available on the Xbox One in Poland, the country where the game's development process is taking place. However, this has recently changed as regional restrictions have been entirely removed from the Xbox One.

On March 11, 2014 it was announced that the game's release date was delayed from Fall 2014 to February 2015. According to an official statement released by the development team, they had successfully created "a story that flows naturally, cinematically, rendered it in amazing sound and visuals, while preserving full freedom of choice" - suggesting that the core game and its main story were practically finished. However, the statement then goes on to cite the main reason for the delay was manual fine-tuning of many details and thorough testing of the final product to bring it up to the desired standard of quality.
