The Witcher is one of the most underrated video game series out there. Thematically similar to Skyrim, the Polish-made role-playing action RPG offers what many enthusiasts consider a deeper, more enriching story and gameplay than most other action RPGs, Skyrim included.
Now in its third installment, The Witcher immerses players in “a living open world larger than any other in modern RPG history.” On horseback and at full speed, it supposedly takes up to 20 minutes to travel the length of the map from north to south.
Skyrim is massive, but The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is 20 percent more massive. Rather than barren, the world is dynamic and rich in detail. Rather than a simple hack and slash, the combat is deep and engaging. This game is bound to be the total package.
Featured above is an impressive trailer of the Geralt of Rivia’s latest adventure, and below is some gameplay footage. If you’re a fan of the genre, it would be in your best interest to check both out.
Set to release on February 24, 2015, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be available on the PS4, Xbox One and PC. Head to the comment section and let us know what you think about the game.
