Happy birthday, witcher! The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt is five years old today and it seems like it was only yesterday that this massive work hit the market. Few things have stayed as fresh as this title for so long. Why is that? Well, mostly because the RPG based on Andrzej Sapkowski’s novels was technically ahead of its time and the content was just huge. But that a game is seen as a blockbuster from the start, and then it seems like the resale has been almost unrestricted and enjoyed a lot of interest, is something you don’t experience every day. In this regard: Congratulations to Withcer 3 and his “parents” from CD Projekt Red!
It’s time to review the milestones of this wonderful role-playing game: Announced as a title story at Game Informer in March 2013, The Witcher 3 captured the imagination of the gaming community just as much as its well-respected predecessor Assassin’s. of Kings (test). . This game has gone from large open areas to a “real” open world. This is probably the only point where you notice the age of the video, when the developers of the interview said without irony that “everyone loves Open World”. Well, the way they did, Open World still works, but back then, the annoyance of open worlds wasn’t as big as it has become in the meantime (although the situation s is now significantly improved because open worlds get better and better).
The game was supposed to appear in the fall of 2014 on “all high-end platforms available” and that Xbox One and PS4 were also intended, it’s probably the other place that shows the age. The Witcher 3 is expected to be released DRM-free, which has brought a lot of goodwill to the CD project. They played a bit of it with two postponements – one of which had previously been banned from the public, which didn’t help either. And then there was the controversy over graphics degradation, as CD Projekt Red had more impressive effects in the early trailers and so some fans felt shaken. These were due to issues with Open World streaming and performance in general, which is why the developers had to make adjustments.
Today that is almost forgotten, as the game that finally appeared in May 2015 – indeed not an incredibly tragic change – broke all expectations and continues to enjoy immense numbers of players to this day. The studio’s good update policy, which, alongside many smaller free DLCs with Hearts of Stone (October 2015) and Blood and Wine (May 2016), has brought expansions to the market that are better than some standalone RPGs, has certainly contributed a lot. . Many even find the blood and wine better than The Wild Hunt itself.
Now that the game is available on all major consoles (The Witcher 3 on the Nintendo Switch (test) is doing surprisingly well) and the core team at CD Projekt Red has been running Cyberpunk 2077 for years, that world still lives on, among other things as a very successful Netflix series. And on the gaming side, talented fans continue to work on The Witcher 3 with the Recommended Enhanced Edition Mod to make it even better than it already is. So, Geralt, it looks to us like you just aren’t getting old – it must also be the gray hair that makes it so hard to date you.
To the next five! And that we may already know more about how this world will evolve, because it is already confirmed.
All we have to do is wish you lots of fun with this list of secrets from the game and the series!
