The Witcher: Wild Hunt is a story-driven, next-generation open world role-playing game set in a visually stunning fantasy universe full of meaningful choices and impactful consequences. In The Witcher you play as the professional monster hunter, Geralt of Rivia, tasked with finding a child of prophecy in a vast open world rich with merchant cities, viking pirate islands, dangerous mountain passes, and forgotten caverns to explore.
PLAY AS A HIGHLY TRAINED MONSTER SLAYER FOR HIRE
Trained from early childhood and mutated to gain superhuman skills, strength and reflexes, witchers are a distrusted counterbalance to the monster-infested world in which they live.
Gruesomely destroy foes as a professional monster hunter armed with a range of upgradeable weapons, mutating potions and combat magic.
Hunt down a wide range of exotic monsters from savage beasts prowling the mountain passes to cunning supernatural predators lurking in the shadows of densely populated towns.
Invest your rewards to upgrade your weaponry and buy custom armour, or spend them away in horse races, card games, fist fighting, and other pleasures the night brings.
EXPLORE A MORALLY INDIFFERENT FANTASY OPEN WORLD
Built for endless adventure, the massive open world of The Witcher sets new standards in terms of size, depth and complexity.
Traverse a fantastical open world: explore forgotten ruins, caves and shipwrecks, trade with merchants and dwarven smiths in cities, and hunt across the open plains, mountains and seas.
Deal with treasonous generals, devious witches and corrupt royalty to provide dark and dangerous services.
Make choices that go beyond good & evil, and face their far-reaching consequences.
CHASE DOWN THE CHILD OF PROPHECY
Take on the most important contract to track down the child of prophecy, a key to save or destroy this world.
In times of war, chase down the child of prophecy, a living weapon of power, foretold by ancient elven legends.
Struggle against ferocious rulers, spirits of the wilds and even a threat from beyond the veil – all hell-bent on controlling this world.
Define your destiny in a world that may not be worth saving.
FULLY REALIZED NEXT GENERATION
Built exclusively for next generation hardware, the REDengine 3 renders the world of The Witcher visually nuanced and organic, a real true to life fantasy.
Dynamic weather systems and day/night cycles affect how the citizens of the towns and the monsters of the wilds behave.
Rich with storyline choices in both main and subplots, this grand open world is influenced by the player unlike ever before.
The Witcher 3 is a masterclass in open-world game design – Geralt of Rivia is back in his biggest adventure to date. I've already ploughed well over 100 hours into the game, and I'm certain that its vast array of side quests, narrative branches, moral quandaries, and epic loot will lure me back in for another 100 at least.
It's a gorgeous game, though worn-torn Temeria is as brutal as it is beautiful, stuffed with plenty of opportunities for a magical mercenary like Geralt. There's much to be said for leaping onto the back of your horse and romping around the countryside as a medieval ghostbuster of sorts, but it's in the superbly written quests, and the characters they affect that the game finds its emotional soul.
Ratchet up the difficulty level and revel in the game's tactical combat, the oils and potions required to fight as a true Witcher, and make your mark on this expansive world just waiting to be saved.

A complete RPG of story and gameplay, there is something for everyone in this game. Do you like open world exploring? There are a ton of Points of Interests on the map. Do you like cutscenes? There are many cutscenes. The graphics in this game are off the charts and the voice acting is top notch. The combat is still not the best, and the inventory/crafting management was clearly made to fit console controls, but otherwise this title is amazing.
Pros: +Really good story +Great graphics, if your hardware can handle it. (GTX 960/HD7950 will do fine at 1080p) +A lot of interesting side quests +Huge open world +A lot of content (will take the average gamer about 80hours to complete the story and most of the side quests) Neutral: ~Combat (It feels a little clunky at times, but does its job well enough.) ~Requires a strong PC to play ~Some boring quests, but they can all be ignored Cons: -Some textures are a little washed out -Some smaller bugs, but nothing game breaking Great game, I can only recommend it.
The Witcher 3 is absolutely one of the greatest RPGs of all time. With a huge world, strongly-drawn characters, satisfying timing-based combat and a whole load of other great features (Like the addictive card game Gwent), it's really hard to ask for much more. Some players may prefer an RPG that provides deeper character customization, but given that The Witcher himself- Geralt of Rivia- is the core of the story, this doesn't allow for the kind of character creation present in games like The Elder Scrolls series. I'll also say it runs pretty well on my PC despite it being seriously underpowered.
I don't know where to start. This game is a true masterpiece. The lands are packed with so much detail, so many little things that complete the game every little piece on it's own. The main story is catching and you just can't stop playing, but the side-quests aren't less interesting. The creatures are stunning and every combat is intesting for itself. Collect your favorite gear, level up, put runes on your favorite sword to make it even more powerful. Discover your own playstyle and make it perfect. After all, riding around with your loyal horse, just enjoying the beautiful world of witcher, as well as fighting powerful creatures and stealing where Geralt can get his hands... There are just little bugs, but you can forgive that compared to the huge world and all the beauty you will come across. It is worth every single cent. You won't regret buying. One of the best games ever made, I don't want it to stop. Ever.
The Witcher 3 is a marvel of technical achievement and ambitious creativity. It took everything you knew about the previous iterations of the trilogy and made them bigger and better in almost every way. CDPR was able to effectively combine BioWare storytelling within a BGS open world. I can tell you, it paid off and TW3 was easily the best game of 2015. Combat is significantly improved and refined from TW3. The storytelling is much more personal, impactful, and gripping. The open world is organic, beautiful, and constantly begs for you to watch the vistas and the beautiful sunsets as well as the dynamic rainstorms. When you aren't in the mood for slaying monsters or saving the world from the Wild Hunt, there is Gwent! By far, it's one of the greatest mini games and most addicting ones I've ever played in a game. There are just so many great qualities about this game, not to mention it's one of, if not the most, beautiful games in the industry right now. I'll say no more. Buy this game. You won't appreciate it as much if you haven't played TW1 and TW2, but certainly anybody can jump into this game and get immersed in the world of The Witcher. With how often this game goes on sale, there is no reason not to pick it up. Did I forget to say the season pass comes with two massive expansions that are just as amazing and emotionally-gripping as the base game? I'll say no more. Stop reading and get to playing!
