The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Sex Scenes Are Constructed From 16 Hours Of Motion Capture

By   /   Jan 29, 2015

The Witcher series has been known for its incredible storyline, choices and gameplay, but in between all these amazing features is the romantic side of Geralt.

We have previously seen him in the romantic relationships with the characters, but with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, CD Projekt Red is looking to go all in, as it has revealed that the sex scenes in the game are “constructed from over 16 hours of motion capture data.”

The number does not mean that the final version will actually feature 16 hours of sex scenes, but this just goes to show how much thought and time developers have spent on creating them.

First of these included sex scenes have been added to the opening scene of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The senior game designer, Damien Monhier explains how adding this scene will help in kicking off the game.

People might think we’re putting sex into the opening scene for no good reason… No, no, no. We are establishing that your character was intimate with this woman recently in order to plant in your mind that, at very least, he must enjoy her company.

He continued on to say that by making players attached to the other character from the beginning, they will feel more inclined towards pursuing her if she goes missing.

Through sex we have shown that this is a person who Geralt would be compelled to chase after if she went missing… Sex is the quickest way in which to establish the relationship and provide a justification for the player to pursue this woman.

We couldn’t just tell you to go find someone you don’t know or care about. It wouldn’t work.

The scene in question involves Yennefer, who is a sorcerer, and it is still uncertain what will happen to her in the game. However, we will not have to wait for too long to find out as The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is slated for release on May 19, 2015.
