The Xbox 720 is said to be featuring games that provide new in-depth experiences for gamers, and no game demonstrated that more than "Skyrim," but "The Witcher 3" looks like it could be blowing away the things "Skyrim" did a few years ago.
According to a report 8BitEnvy on Saturday, "The Witcher 3" gameplay producer Marek Ziemak talked about how the game will provide gamers with over 50 hours of main campaign gameplay.
"We put a lot of detail to designing the quests. All of them are created by our team and tell a completely different story. We don’t want to fill the world with automatically generated quests, which give a false and boring impression of a content full world.
"The story is divided into three layers. The first layer is the 50 hour long main narrative. Also, each land has its own tale, a story to be told and problems for Geralt to solve. These are major questlines and their outcome influences the game world very strongly.
"We also have side quests connected with particular NPCs and open world activities, like Monster Hunting.
"All types of quests influence one another, so taking a detour from the main quest will affect the game world and other tasks. They are not just separate chores you do, everything is connected," Ziemak said.
CD Projekt RED did confirm that "The Witcher 3" will be featuring a 50-hour main campaign, with an additional 50-hours of optional missions for gamers to complete.
That may just about squash what "Skyrim" did a few years ago. Granted the game is one of the best, "The Witcher 3" on Xbox 720 has a chance to redefine the genre.
Xbox 720 will be featuring a lot of games, but if this is the type of depth and length gamers can expect to see in most upcoming next-generation titles, then people may not have as much of a problem with paying $10 more for these games.
