CD Projekt Red has released the opening cinematic video from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, giving us a small glimpse into the epic adventure players will find in Wild Hunt.
The cinematic shows series protagonist and witcher, Geralt of Rivia, alongside his mentor and fellow witcher Vesemir pursuing Geralt’s long lost love, Yennefer of Vengerberg. Yennefer is an immensely powerful raven-black-haired sorceress, who can handle her own.
The opening cinematic contains some interesting moments, from the small glance at some of the dangerous magical powers Yennefer wields, to the brutality of a raven exploding through an individuals head. If this is the sort of action we are in store for during the opening cinematic, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is setting a strong foundation for a memorable adventure.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is scheduled to release February 24, 2015, for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. Analog Addiction has had the pleasure of interviewing CD Project Red twice in recent months. Firstly we learned about how hard it will be for newcomers to The Witcher series to follow the story, and then we learned more about sea monsters and new ranged weapons in Geralt’s arsenal.
