Wild Hunt (The Witcher 3) Release Date and Trailer

CD Projekt Red have taken the Polish fantasy series, The Witcher and created two excellent action-RPGs. The third game in the series, Wild Hunt – which will be released on XBOX One, Playstation 4 and PC – has been given a release date.

Fans of the series (or even just fans of fantasy worlds) will be able to get hold of the game on 24 Feb 2015. This announcement comes along with a brand new trailer which shows off the beauty of the game and what looks to be a particularly action packed combat system.

Wild Hunt looks like it will set the standard for action RPGs moving forward and I’m sure I’ll be getting hold of the collectors edition too (unboxed in the second video below) – here’s a summary of the contents (though at the price of £139.99, I may need to start saving early!):

  • All the contents from the standard edition of the game
  • A giant, 33x24x26 cm (10”), 100% hand painted, Polystone figure of Geralt of Rivia battling a Griffin
  • An exquisite, collector-grade Witcher medallion
  • A one-of-a-kind SteelBook™ box
  • A two-hundred-page artbook, containing breathtaking art from the game
  • Huge outer and inner Collector’s Boxes you can store your Witcher merchandise in!

As a side note, I highly recommend having a read of the translated versions of Andrzej Sapkowski’s books. They’re excellent reads set in a dark fantasy world that turns some common fantasy and fairy tale tropes on their head. I’ve recently re-read the first book and will hopefully be getting through the remaining three before 24 Feb 2015.

Here are the videos:
