The Witcher 3 promises 50 hours of gameplay, deeper environments

The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt

By on March 1, 2013 at 2:48 pm

Previews of The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt have begun to appear in German magazines such as PC Games and Gamestar, revealing some interesting new details about the promising-looking sequel.

Play-throughs are expected to take at least 50 hours in length, with 36 possible world states at the end of each play through.

Your save games will determine which characters are alive in your playthrough, but Geralt’s backstory will remain unchanged.

You can also use Geralt’s Axii spell to tame horses, and hunt animals who will appear and disappear based on day and night cycles in the environment. Townsfolks will rat you out if they catch you stealing, and Geralt can now level up to 60 — and even jump on command! The future.

In further excellent news, Geralt can also target individual body parts — and QTE’s have been scrapped.

That all sounds good! Though I hope the 36 different “states” are significantly different.

 

36 different end states can be summarised into two relevant ones: Shani and no Shani.
