A lot of gamers know that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is coming this May for the Xbox One, PS4, and PC. What some people probably don't know is that the game is jam-packed with content, including mini-games, side-quests, and miscellaneous activities to partake in.
You can check out the latest Witcher 3 trailer below, courtesy of Izuniy:
When I noticed that the trailer was nearly five minutes long, I was worried it would meander around, bragging about the game's features. But it actually didn't seem to have enough time to cover everything. In fact, the last 30 seconds are a blur of features that all looked really interesting.
The mini-games are rarely discussed in any of The Witcher 3's marketing. For instance, I didn't know that horse racing was a prominent feature, and it looks like it is. Various races scattered across the North Realms will add a bit of variety to your travels.
But beyond races The Witcher 3 also sports hand-to-hand combat. If you found yourself having a tough time playing games like EA Sports UFC, you'll have an easier go in the bare-knuckle brawling mini-game in The Witcher 3.
Plus, the title includes things like card games and drinking activities, giving gamers some miscellaneous enjoyment outside of fighting and racing horses. For the lovers among us, there are even some romance options to explore, just like in past Witcher titles. The trailer even hints at some romance when Yennefer and Geralt are on the horse and Yennefer uses a spell to remove her shirt.
Now that's an interesting use for magic.
The trailer also hints at some more esoteric activities such as experimenting with rituals. They don't give any details about what that actually means. But it includes two women in a literal blood bath, which hints at some very deviant behavior.
Previously it was noted that the game contains more than 100 hours worth of gameplay content, and CD Projekt Red even revealed that a speed-run for the game would likely clock in around 25 hours.
CD Projekt already has two expansion packs planned, so if you somehow manage to get bored hunting vampires, drinking ale, chasing tail, racing horses, and roughhousing it with ruffians, you can look for even more content to drop after the game releases.
The Witcher 3 is scheduled to go live for the Xbox One, PS4, and PC starting in the middle of May. The game is obviously being pegged as one of the spring's big AAA titles. Need more info? Feel free to pay a visit to the game's official website.
