The Witcher 3
The Witcher 3: Wild Gon is the crowning installment of the trilogy by studio CD Projekt RED of the action cRPG game series.
The plot of The Witcher 3 once again allows the player to take on the role of the notorious monster slayer Geralt of Rivia. The story weaves together several intersecting threads and takes place after the end of the action from The Witcher 2. During our journey through the world, the Witcher regains his memory and sets out to find his loved ones. In between, it engages in the Nilfgaard invasion and other political plots, and pursues the titular Wild Gon. An important character is Geralt's foster daughter, Ciri.
The Witcher 3's gameplay offers a novelty in the series – a completely open world. Thus, in order not to fund players monotonous journeys, fast travel points have been introduced, as well as the possibility of riding on horseback. The map itself is thirty times more extensive than its predecessor. In addition, the world offers changing weather conditions, which affect even the monsters. The authors decided to introduce reconnaissance before performing missions. So Geralt, before setting out on the hunt, can collect useful information about the prey. It may turn out that the beast appears only under the right conditions and in order to defeat it it is necessary to use the right tools and aim at the only exposed point.
The use of the proprietary REDengine 3 engine allowed for significant changes in the combat system. Above all, we have many more character animations available. Indeed, there are as many as 96 of them (20 in "two"). A system of dodging, blocking, and stopping attacks has also been introduced. Naturally, there was no shortage of impressive clashes with bosses, which are now no longer scripted.
