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

I think this game is really a "must have title" for every player. CD Projekt Red made excellent game. We have everything there. Storyline is really great, especially story with Bloody Baron - in my opinion this is one of the best quests ever made. Usually I made only main story in games, but in W3 i did everything - treasure hunts, contracts, side quests. Every quest has interesting story, which makes you want to discover every part of the game. Graphics look really great, optimalization is okay - you can play in steady 30 fps on 5-6 years old pc. Music is really a masterpiece. W3 had initially some bugs and issues but after some patches I hadn't get any problems with game.
If you are like me and rich and interesting story in a game is in the first place, you will love this game. It has the best main story I've seen in a game in my life, and trust me I've played a lot of other famous rpg titles. But this is not the end of it, the side quests and activities are full of interesting stories as well, granted there are some (particularly in skellige) that I feel could be skipped as they contain only loot and no stories or interesting things to do but they are less than 1% of all the content. To sum up here are the pros and cons: Pros: + Great main story + Excellent side quests + Really good combat mechanics (recommend playing on Death March to really experience "The witchers path") + Length of meaningful gameplay (no mmo filler like DA: Inquisition) + Excellent witcher contracts + Superb romance options (just trust me don't romance Triss and Yenn at the same time...) + Great voice acting and characters + State of the art soundtrack Cons - bugs, like in any open world games - those fist fights... In general buy and play this game, if you have even slightest interest in rpgs or story driven games you will love it.
I was one of the first to rush out to the store for midnight premiere. The first half of the game is actually great, with really good characters, nice locations and fun exploration. When you hit Skellige, though, everything starts sucking. Skellige is just everything that was wrong with Windwaker. Writing gets incredibly weak, full of plotholes and showing that choices are "yes/no/funny/tell me more" that have no impact on anything what so ever other than sometimes maybe giving you one line in dialog. Through the whole game, there are only 7 really important choices that have impact on ending, but you have to really make 5 to get all of them. As for the ending, it sucks and by the end you can clearly see that the game got cut in some point (which developers even admitted and said they had to cut half of the game, because it was so big at first, the amount of content would be enough to make Witcher 4 or 3 a two parter). Gameplay is simple action RPG button masher with barely any strategy. While graphics look great on main characters and some of the locations, sometimes it looks downright lazy, especially when you notice there are only 10 faces for NPCs. Overall, not a bad game, but really overhyped.
RPG action game, the third part of Geralt's adventure from Rivia. As in the previous series, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is based on the motifs of Andrzej Sapkowski's literary output, but is not a direct adaptation of any of his books. The story of the game focuses on several topics, including: Geralt's lost love, Nilfgaard's invasion of the Kingdom of the North, and mythical, legendary hunts. The gameplay is maintained in a sandbox style, giving players the freedom to explore the vast world (over 40 times as big as the Assassins of Kings) and to perform hundreds of side missions. Developers from the CD Projekt RED studios have taken care of a solid lineup of novelties, including the new REDengine3 engine, which offers excellent audio-visual performance.
It is not only in my opinion the best game ever made. Plot, gameplay, Geralt, Yennefer, Triss, Ciri... Probably one of the greatest characters in gaming history. Kaer Morhen and the climax in that place is just incredible. You feel everything, you want to be the witcher. I recommend playing The Witcher 1 first. World is so big, you can't spy out everything at your first playthrough. TW3 includes so many quests that you need at least 70 hours to finish them. 2 expansions - first quite short, second so big that it could actually be The Witcher 4. This is the game I ever wanted to play.
