Mikolaj Szwed has provided some comments in regards to some of the elements in the upcoming multiplatform video game, “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.” In an interview with El33t Online on Sept. 2, the story and quest designer at CD Projekt Red was asked about the potential return of Triss Merigold.
The female sorceress appeared in the original “The Witcher” video game in addition to the follow-up, “The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings.” She is a romantic partner of Geralt of Rivia, the main protagonist of the prior titles as well as the upcoming “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.”
Mikolaj Szwed responded to the inquiry of Triss Merigold by stating that he “can’t really spoil much about the characters.” He did confirm that “Crach an Craite, yarl of Skellige” will be making an appearance in the game. He also mentioned that the Nilfgaarding is also going to be a part of the story.
The story and quest designer also talked a little bit about Roach, the female horse that will accompany Geralt of Rivia throughout his journey in the sequel. Although he confirmed that “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” will have romance options, Roach won’t be one of them. You can check out his statement on the subject below (courtesy of El33t Online):
So these characters will return and when it comes to female characters from the books I can tell you that Roach will be there – Roach is Geralt’s horse, so every horse of Geralt’s is called Roach – but Roach will not be a romance option. So there will be some romance options but I can’t give you any names at this point.
“The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” will be made available next year on the PC, PS4 and Xbox One platforms.
