The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Gets Its First Screenshots

By Ishaan . March 1, 2013 . 9:00am

CD Projekt Red have released the first screenshots of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, slated for release on “all high-end platforms” (including the recently announced PlayStation 4) in 2014. As previously reported, the game will be an open-world RPG and the final Witcher game developed by the studio.


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,” says Adam Badowski, head of CD Projekt Red. Badowski reiterates that The Witcher 3 will be 30 times larger than the first game.


Depending on your decisions and the way the story evolves, the locations you visit will be different as well. The screenshots in this report are of the islands of Skellige, one of the lands in the game. Note that the screens represent an early version of the game.

    Looks amazing.

  • tridus

    Can’t wait to get my greedy little hands on this game.

  • This is looking great! I’m loving the Witcher 2 so far and am very excited for this game. Cannot wait to see how it turns out in the final version. Also, the idea of having excluded storylines due to decisions made is awesome. I love that incentive for replay value.

    PS4 will be AMAZING… Witcher 3, Dark Souls 2, The Last Guardian… it`s insane. This game looks and sounds absolutely incredible.

    • Dark Souls 2 confirmed next gen ?!

      • grevlinghore

        Not officially, no. But we all know it`s gonna happen, considering how much the visuals are said to have improved from the first game.

  • Altritter

    Looks beautiful, color me impressed. I really enjoy The Witcher and this looks like the game I felt the series should aspire to.

  • Adol Christin

    Looks good, not amazing or anything, but good.

  • looks absolutely incredible…definitely buying thi eventhough I never played witcher.

    • Jisgsaw

      You should, the first one is one of my best video game experience ever.

      And if the story focuses on what was teased during the second game, you would’nt get the whole story (which is also true for people only playing the games and not reading the books though ^^)

      • I got witcher 2 for my PC but I can’t play it on lowest settings :( I also don’t have an xbox nor am I planning to buy one.Guess I’ll just wait for witcher 3 on PS4.

  • capristrider

    This looks the business. This is a good indicator of what demon’s souls 2 could look like if ever released on PS4. Respect to CD Projekt Red for producing high quality titles.

    Lets melt all the PC!!

  • Ridho Siregar

    This might be cooler than Skyrim.

    I hope we can control when we’re sailing on that boat.

    The Witcher 2 on 360 drove me nuts because the third person camera was just SLIGHTLY too close to Geralt.

    It was really distracting. I’ll give it another go, though, as I want to get into it.

    Also, my wife is Polish so a Polish game with Polish audio makes her pretty happy. (Subtitles for meeee!)

    So I have to sell my house if I want a PC that runs it.
