  • They are targeting 30fps on console.
  • Geralt will change his stance according to the task he is faced with e.g. wary if surrounded by a pack of monsters.
  • They added Witcher sense similar to Batman’s Detective mode so you can see weak points on monsters like The Fiend’s lungs, or outside of battle to recreate events like tracking a murderer.
  • Main storyline is 40-50hrs, and another 40-50 in the open world.
  • No “Fedex Quests.”
  • Choice and consequence will ripple across the world.
  • Don’t want to build a sandbox experience, storytelling is still the main goal.
  • Some locations: Skellige: Nordic-style archipelago, Slavic-like No Mans Land and city of Novigrad.
