The World and NPCs of The Witcher 3 React to Your Actions

Posted by 125805786 on

The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt Gamescom CD Projekt RED’s The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will deliver a vast open-world teeming with life, be it people, animals, monsters and/or demons. In fact, as the final part of The Witcher trilogy, the game is notably bigger and much more ambitious than any of its predecessors, offering players many locations to explore, quests to finish and big decisions to make. Apparently, everything you do or don’t do in The Witcher 3 has an effect on the world. For instance, if a monster attacks a village and then is slayed, you can bet the villagers will remember that event for the rest of the game. In an interview with GamingBolt, CD Projekt RED Lead Game Programmer Grzegorz Mocarski revealed that the behaviors of the world’s inhabitants are dynamic and will change to reflect your actions and choices:
“The Witcher 3 is a huge, open world game, and open world for us means not only huge locations, but also a number of interesting choices. You can do a lot in the game, and we’re giving you many, many options. The world around us reacts to the choices, as well.”
Not only do your actions have consequences, but Mocarski’s team also put in the work to make sure The Witcher 3 is more than just a linear story with one gameplay style...
“It’s not only about having a story arc with different choices as you saw during the presentation, but it’s also about giving the player the option to choose what they want to do and how they want to interact with the game. During combat, you will have many options in terms of how to fight against your enemies. You can use different kinds of attacks –swords, bombs – and you can prepare plenty before the fight, and it is important. When fighting enemies like werewolves, which is part of monster hunting, which is a huge part of our game, you’re also changing the environment around it, right? If there is a werewolf or a big creature like it somewhere around people, the people will gladly pay you for your assistance, for your help.”
HOLY COW! The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt Has 16 DLC Packs – All Free! In fact, it’s the sheer scale and ambitiousness of The Witcher 3 that resulted in it being delayed, with the extra time allotted allowing CD Projekt RED to further polish the game and deliver the top-notch quality product they promise us. Content, graphics and gameplay -- The Witcher 3 is bound to be the total package and one of the best RPG games in living memory. Of the three platforms it will be available on -- Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC -- which one would you prefer to play on?
