The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (Polish: Wiedźmin 3: Dziki Gon) is the third and final installment in the series of games developed by CD Projekt RED featuring the witcher Geralt of Rivia.
During the first two weeks since release it had sold more than 4 million copies worldwide, more than doubling the total sales of its predecessor The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings.
Unlike the previous games, The Witcher 3 is set in a multi-region open world, featuring over 100 hours of content. Several early articles mentioned that the developers planned to have an open world similar to that in Skyrim but 20% larger.
The devs were quick to point out that while there was much to appreciate in Bethesda’s open world concept, they were also making an effort not to repeat what they perceived as the flaws in-game. As with earlier games, the consequences of Geralt’s actions will impact how the narrative progresses.
The game has been built using the new REDengine 3 and was designed with player feedback from fans of previous Witcher games in mind.
