The March cover of Game Informer was revealed Tuesday confirming that "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt" is coming to the PC and "high-end platforms" in 2014 from CD Projekt Red. We take "high-end platforms" as a euphemism for the soon to be announced PS4 and Xbox 720.
"The Witcher 3" will once again star Geralt in a new open-world adventure using the recently announced REDengine 3 to create non-linear plotlines. The world of "Wild Hunt" is 40 times larger than "The Witcher 2" and 20 percent larger than "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim".
According to Game Informer, Geralt can cross the entire game world without experiencing loading screens while engaging in free-form activities such as monster slaying, crafting and approximately 100 hours worth of quests. Along the way way, Geralt will be able to engage in some political intrigue in the different areas of the world - Skellige, Novigrad, and No Man’s Land.
Meanwhile, the main plot involves Geralt's search for his loved ones after regaining his memories and the chase of the Wild Hunt.
Aside from the size of the game world, "The Witcher 3" will include a number of new technical improvements including dynamic weather with a fully modeled sky, rebuilt enemy AI, 96 combat animations, improved inventory management and possibly horse-mounted combat.
This will be the conclusion of the trilogy according to CD Projekt Red.
