The Witcher 3 is possibly one of the most anticipated games for next-gen and PC and for good reason too! With its huge open world with multi regions and superb visuals and graphics, its going to be awesome. In an interview with IGN the developer CD Projekt Red spoke about the different aspects of the game from the hardware they had to deal with and the amount of endings you’ll get.
The Witcher has always been famous for it’s non-linear story telling especially in the last game, when you finished the game once you could play it again and take completely different side making it feels like you are playing a completely new campaign. In the interview with IGN when asked if The Witcher 3 would take the same player driven route with different endings, CD Projekt Red said: “We have an internal debate if it’s 36 or more, but I can tell you that there are many, MANY different endings. You will definitely want to play this game more than once.”
36 different endings? That’s insane! That’ll keep all Witcher fans glued to there seats for months.
Further in the interview they discussed development on next-gen hardware saying: “There is a lot of power in these machines, and I don’t want to say we’re using them to their capacity, but we’re fairly close to doing so. We made a decision to go next-gen roughly two and a half years ago, so we’ve spent a lot of time with these machines, and it’s been a great experience across all three platforms.” Projekt Red followed on mention older-gen consoles saying “On the old platforms, namely the Xbox 360 and PS3, we probably would have had to sacrifice nearly half of our vision.”
I can see that they really needed the next-gen to help create this fantastic world, but what do you think? Will you be playing the game multiple times to experience the 36 endings? Do you think that they should have released the Witcher 3 on current-gen or not? Let me know in the comments or Tweet at me @samcoles2.
