A few months ago, CD Projekt RED finally completed The Witcher series, a critically acclaimed series of games that brought a relatively obscure Polish book series to a worldwide audience. Now, CD Projekt RED has released the Witcher 3 Game of the Year trailer to promote their upcoming sendoff to the series, a Game of the Year Edition of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The trailer reminds of why the game has won over 800 awards and undoubtedly one of the best RPGs to date.
The final entry in Geralt of Rivia’s story, Wild Hunt tells the story of Gerlat as he searches for his adoptive daughter Ciri, and comes into conflict with the sinister army known as the Wild Hunt. In this game, Geralt’s journey takes him to a wider stretch of land than ever before, with an enormous map filled with a huge variety of discoveries to make.
The game also released two enormous pieces of story DLC, telling of other parts of Geralt’s adventures. Both of these DLCs also got critical acclaim, and both of them were also shown in the Witcher 3 Game of the Year trailer as part of the package, allowing you to go through Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine without having to spend another penny.
By going on this final adventure with Geralt, players will be able to fight a wide variety of creatures, ranging from three-eyed Fiends to cyclopes, to giants, to trolls, and much more, while immersing themselves in a vast world filled with quests to do and locations to explore.
While gamers that have already gotten the game might like to avoid it (especially since there’s nothing there that you likely haven’t gotten already, not to mention that you can’t transfer your saves on consoles), the Witcher 3 Game of the Year trailer does present a pretty good picture of the game for people that may be debating taking that first step into Geralt’s world to see just what all the hubbub is about.
