“Killing Monsters.” is what Geralt utters to this particular “creature” attired as a highborn yet vile nonetheless. The words rattled off his tongue slow, deliberate and as cold as a witch’s tit.

Witcher fans. RPG diehard. Fantasy dreamers. Action stalwarts. Drama and mystery sleuths… Your time is nigh. The Wicher 3: The Wild Hunt is nearly upon us. There are few games I get to truly allow my self to be lost within. Time doesn’t permit such. But the Witcher games demand my attention each and every time. Building from the previous, each is better than the last and Wild Hunt looks to continue that idea with a complete open environment.

When CD Project RED talks about the scale and complexity, Elder Scrolls V: Skryim seems to be the closest comparison–albeit with a heaping spoonful of severed body parts and an action-oriented fighting system. This here trailer shows an older more grizzled Geralt stamping out the nefarious–despite how it struts, despite its honeyed lips and opulent dress. In fact, I’d wager good coin, the man was less interested in saving the damsel and far more obsessively compelled to expunge the evil that men do.

The Wicther 3: The Wild Hunt dismounts for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2014.
