“The Witcher 2 was a pretty good game,” says James Ransome, a game designer who has worked on titles such as Gears of War 3 and Far Cry 4.
“It was a lot of fun and had a lot going for it.
We thought it was a great game.
It’s not perfect.
It was just an experience that we were able to enjoy.”
Ransome believes the Witcher 3 was the first game in the series to truly embrace a more modern narrative, one that saw Geralt fighting to save his people and discover a mysterious prophecy.
He describes the game as “the culmination of everything we had done so far,” and adds that “we wanted to take the series in a different direction.”
“I think [the Witcher 3] is going to be one of the most significant games in gaming history,” Ransomesaid.
“There’s no question that it is a game that was designed to make people want to buy a console.
We’ve been able to do that, and we’ve been lucky enough to have done so.”
The Witcher was released on PC in November 2013, with PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions following in the fall of 2014.
The Witcher 2, which was released in 2015, received mixed reviews at launch.
A full review is not due until the end of the year, but the developers are planning to publish the full game for both consoles and PC in 2018.
“We’ve been working on the game for a long time, and the team is really passionate about it,” says Ransomenamesays.
“They’ve been really hard at work to bring this game to life, and I think that this is the first time we’ve really been able put it to the test.”
The new game’s story takes place during a time when the world of Velen has been ravaged by the Dark Arts, and many of the nation’s citizens have become infected with the disease.
Geralt, a young man of unknown lineage, has traveled to the small, isolated village of Dandelion Woods to rescue the townspeople from their infected condition.
It turns out that the mysterious prophecy prophesied in the original game has actually come true, and Geralt must now take on the role of a young knight in order to save the world.
“The game is about trying to find out what’s going on, what’s happening,” Ranomesays.
