New The Witcher 3 trailer kills some monsters

Monsters, of course, come in all shapes and sizes.

CD Projekt RED says that the ‘Killing Monsters’ trailer above is a foreshadowing of the “mature mood of the upcoming story-driven RPG, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt”. If the game plays, feels and looks anything like what that trailer shows off, then RPG fans are in for a serious treat.

The Witcher series has always had a mature bent to it (in more ways than just the nudity), but part 3 is looking like something even darker and more lawless than what we’ve seen from the realm of Rivia thus far. It also looks flat out glorious.

“Actions speak louder than words. We wanted the short movie to communicate that Geralt, despite being seen as a sellsword by many, has his own code of conduct and operates outside of the dirty morality of the world he lives in” – said Adam Badowski, Head of CD Projekt RED.

“Killing Monsters was a great opportunity to show the ambience of No Man’s Land – one of the vast areas in the game that the players will visit during their adventure. The overwhelming feeling of despair can be quite shocking, especially when you consider who the real monster is.” – Badowski added.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is expected to arrive for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC some time in 2014.
