The Witcher 3 plot is aspiring

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is an upcoming action RPG being developed by CD Projekt RED, expected to be set in an open world 30 times larger than previous instalments. With the new RED Engine 3 game engine players will be able to explore Witcher 3 without loading screens, and from what we are hearing the plot for this next-gen game is said to be aspiring.

In fact the words “extremely ambitious” deliver plenty of anticipation for the game releasing sometime in 2014. In an article on VG24/7 the plot is discussed by CD Projekt, which highlights the ambition of this game, going deeper into the world of The Witcher implementing more moral choices.

According to lead quest designer Mateusz Tomaszkiewicz, the plot involves Geralt regaining his memory and being more the wiser for it. His character seems more determined this time around, and Tomaszkiewicz says this is the “most mature plot in The Witcher trilogy“.

Plenty of complex politics will be apparent with mature subjects like racism being part of the Witcher setting, as this instalment intends to delve further into what gamers know for the previous games, so there is not too much emphasis on Geralt saving the world single-handedly.

The Witcher 3 is said to contain an emotional story in an epic environment, which is truly immersive as far as the plot is concerned. A big part of Geralt’s impact will be a deeper moral choice system, and each choice will give players the opportunity to reach one of 36 world states before the end of the game.

Presented in black or white binary questions the moral choice system will also provide plenty of grey moral choices that are essential to the world of The Witcher, and the “butterfly effect” will return to give serious consequences for what could be regarded as unimportant choices.

From the limited information available, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be accessible in 2014 on PC, PS4 and next-gen formats, so we hope to hear more on this over the course of this year.

Do you expect The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will give us a taste of how good next-gen games will be?
