Like, super soon.
The Witcher 3 is an open-world sort of RPG, the third game in the Witcher series, based on the Polish fantasy series by Andrzej Sapkowski. You play the role of Geralt, a guy who goes around and kills monsters for cash.
Geralt, he hail from the Northern Kingdoms, a loose coalition of warring nations who are united in the fact that they absolutely do not
want to be conquered by the Nilfgaardian Empire, set to the south of the mighty Yaruga River. The Witcher 3 takes place during an invasion by Nilfgaard, and Geralt can choose to lend his support to either side in certain conflicts, or to be neutral, or to just piss off and not care. It's how it is. He's on name-basis with the Emperor of Nilfgaard and a couple of the remaining Northern Kings, which makes things more complicated on a political level.
Also there's some shit in there about an army of dimension-traveling elf sorcerer kings who are really looking to fuck shit up and only you stand between them and their goal: Ciri, a girl that Geralt helped to raise, now grown into her power and one of the greatest magical forces the planet has ever seen.
Shit gets really real, really fast.
But you ain't need to worry about that stuff over-much. Hell, never engage with the main plot if you really don't want to! That's why it's open-world. But the narrative focus of the game can come across quite differently from other open-world games. The Witcher series is rooted in the idea of choices - not good choices versus bad choices, because morality is not a simple thing in the Witcher universe, but in choices that all carry their own consequences. You're rarely given all
the information about a choice when you make it, and the way that some choices branch off of others makes it so that the full repercussions are not immediately clear, and are very often surprising.
Here's a video showing some monsters, and also Ciri is playable and can teleport all over the place like a huge bad-ass:
Here's some of the music you'll hear in combat:
The Witcher games are straight-up some of my very favorite games. They have a great sense of humor, the characters are great, and it strikes a tone that pretty much no other fantasy video game even tries for. It's an ugly, ugly world this takes place in, and you have to work hard to make something good out of it.
Let's talk about this series of video games.
