Art Producer Explains Differences Between The Witcher 3 and Skyrim

By   /   Apr 10, 2014

In an interview with a gaming magazine GamesTM, Senior Art Producer of Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has pointed out a couple of similarities and differences between Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

To Michal Krzeminski, Skyrim is more of an open-world sandbox title, whereas: The Witcher 3 is a story-driven experience which is also set in an open-world. He holds the opinion that although both games are same at core level (being role-playing games), small differences begin to raise their heads once you go into detail.

However, this certainly doesn’t mean that a Witcher fan cannot like Skyrim, and a Skyrim fan won’t come anywhere near The Witcher as both games provide a unique experience.

In terms of audience, well, I think that it’s not the case that if you like The Witcher, you can’t like the Elder Scrolls (or the other way around). You can like both games for what they offer and get a different kind of buzz from playing them.

Since Skyrim was released on last-gen platforms with the exception of PC, Krzeminski believes that the current-gen technology has provided them with a chance to ameliorate the game’s graphical fidelity, seamless gameplay, lack of loading screen, and overall a much better experience.

Since we are talking about two open-world games, a Reddit user has noted some slides from The Witcher 3 presentation during GDC and has presented some mindboggling facts regarding the open world of both games and that is the world of The Witcher 3 is about 3 times larger than Skyrim.

The Witcher 3 is slated to release in February, 2015 for PC, Xbox One, and Playstation 4.
