The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Confirmed For The Playstation 4
Following the amazing Playstation 4 announcement CD Projekt Red have finally been able to unveil their first exciting PS4 project, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Scheduled for a 2014 release The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is the final episode in the award-winning series and promises to deliver an exciting conclusion to the legend of Geralt Rivia. Although the final game in the franchise The Witcher 3 will provide a stand-alone story, offering fans of the series a new experience and first-time players the thrill of discovering the franchise for the first time.
“We were thrilled when asked, several months ago, to be one of the developers who were granted early access to the PlayStation 4. It was an exciting moment to be invited to be in the company of other legendary developers like Bethesda, EA, LucasArts, Ubisoft or Activision as one of the teams working on titles shipping early in the PlayStation 4’s lifecycle. Of course, we couldn’t reveal any specifics about this to our fans, even though many journalists and forum members asked about when and how The Witcher might show up on Sony’s console. After yesterday’s PlayStation Meeting we can finally promise: The Witcher 3 is coming to the PlayStation 4. The new hardware gives us the opportunity to create something great. We are able to work with the new console from its birth and this allows our in-house REDengine 3 to push the graphical limits of what the PlayStation hardware can display. The console is fresh and has some innovative solutions that we’re looking forward to using in our game,”
– Adam Badowski, head of CD Projekt RED studio.
Already labeled as a “must see next-gen RPG” by Game Informer, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has set gaming forums ablaze following this most recent announcement. An improved combat system will offer players an entirely new experience and coupled with free-roaming environments and a non-linear story, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is all set and ready to become the defining title of the much loved franchise.
Studio head Adam Badowski finished with:
“The Witcher 3 will be released in 2014 simultaneously on all high-end platforms available. We know that our fans are looking forward to that date already, but we want to make it clear that this story is a standalone, and we will be sure introduce newcomers fully to the world so that they don’t miss a beat. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will start with an breathtaking opening, which will give many insights to the lore. The game design will allow smooth introduction to new characters and encourage players to discover the vast, living, open world of this installment of Geralt’s tale.”
