CD Projekt RED has released over a dozen new screenshots from their upcoming open-world, story-driven RPG The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The first round of images are from an early build and feature the new sailing mechanic as well as one of the navigable islands, Skellige. Exactly where players can trek will depend on the decisions they make throughout Geralt’s storyline as well as in local plotlines and other side quests.
The Witcher 3 is scheduled to launch next year for PS4 and “all high-end platforms.”

“The Witcher 3 is full of impactful decisions, and gamers will choose between storylines that exclude one another in a single playthrough, ensuring extensive replay value. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt crowns the trilogy with the main narrative, revolving around Geralt’s search for his loved ones and his conflict with the Wild Hunt. As players travel through the game, they visit lands with their own unique atmosphere, communities and memorable characters. CD Projekt RED didn’t create an open world with a singular theme, but concentrated on delivering diversified and engaging environments, 30 times larger than those in The Witcher 2,” said Adam Badowski, head of CD Projekt RED studio.
