The long wait is over, and it has been a wait well worth the time. The Witcher: Wild Hunt is finally available! Once again, don the armor of Geralt of Rivia as you navigate an enormous open world that is 30 times larger than the previous Witcher games. With revamped fighting mechanics and super charged graphics, this game could be a contender for game of the year!
Based on the series of fantasy novels of the same title by the Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski, is a fantastic blend of magic and medieval combat. Taking place after the books, this edition concludes the story of the Witcher Geralt of Rivia as he must fight against an evil army known as the Wild Hunt. Geralt must make difficult personal decisions as he defends the Northern Kingdoms against this catastrophic invasion.
As previously stated, the updated open world is 30 times larger than previous Witcher titles- this is something that really caught my attention. One of my favorite games of the last several years was Skyrim, another open world fantasy title. According to the developers, the world In The Witcher: Wild Hunt is even bigger; so large that players must sail and ride on horseback to cover the distance. I must admit that I was not even thinking about this game until I read about it last weekend, but I will definitely be picking it up now that I know what is in store for me.
