Witcher 3 Release Date Not Definite, Cyberpunk Unaffected

By Nathan Grayson on March 13th, 2014.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt isn’t strutting down the beardwalk until 2015. Boooooo. But we shall save mourning for another day, as there is work to be done and questions to be asked. After all, CD Projekt isn’t just a Witcher factory anymore. It’s also working on Cyberpunk 2077 and a couple mysterious “smaller” games. When Geralt – CDP’s clear ace-in-the-hole – gets shuffled back into the deck, what does that mean for everybody else? I got in touch with CD Projekt to find out.

Boooooo! – The Witcher 3 Delayed To 2015

By Nathan Grayson on March 11th, 2014.

That ominous mountain is now retroactively symbolic of a very long wait.

It was all going to be so simple. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was set to come out toward the end of 2014, and I was going to tear into it like a ravenous wolf cub, all fur and fang and aggression, no hesitation or 9-5 desk job or mortgages I should be worrying about. But that, sadly, is no longer the plan. CD Projekt’s open-ish world opus has been pushed into 2015. It’s all in the name of making the best game possible, but… oh jeez what is this entire freshly sliced onion doing in my eye? It’s getting in the way of all that bitter sobbing over The Witcher 3 I was going to do.

Finally: There Is A Witcher Boardgame

By Nathan Grayson on January 10th, 2014.

The day that everyone’s been eagerly awaiting is finally upon us. After years of suffering through CD Projekt’s childish “videogame” machinations, The Witcher is assuming its proper place on sturdy, grown-up tables the world over. The Witcher Adventure Game – which is not a Witcher adventure game – is a four-player role-based romp through the series’ witchy wilds. All the trademarks are in place: recognizable characters, quests with choices and multiple outcomes, and – yes, thank the heavens – Geralt’s beard. Trailer and info on how all these jagged jigsaw pieces fit together below.

At Least Some Of These 65 Witcher 3 Screens Are New

By Alec Meer on October 31st, 2013.

We’ve no new Witcher 3 videos of late, but if you scroll through these really, really quickly, it’ll be just like watching a low frame rate, abysmally edited video. Make some sword-swooshing noises as you do it, for added effect. The genesis and/or novelty of these 65 1080p screenshots of CDP’s next massive roleplaying game is somewhat indeterminate at present, but I’m sure a good number of them will be fresh to your eyes. PCs with low memory should perhaps be wary of this doubtless RAM-hungry post.

Buy Anything On GOG, Get A Free Copy Of Witcher

By Nathan Grayson on October 11th, 2013.

Geralt, minus beard and graphics.

Purchasing games is hard. Nearly impossible, in some cases. You have to pick one out, remember your credit card number, do, like, a million other things, and then pray that the game will materialize on your hard drive via magicks so dark that their casters take their coffee double-black. Oh, and the process always, invariably costs at least 14 million dollars. I was thinking of giving up on it altogether until GOG announced a rather tantalizing incentive. For one week, any purchase you make will come with a free copy of The Witcher: Enhanced Edition.

See CDP Explain The Mad Scope Of The Witcher 3

By Jim Rossignol on October 1st, 2013.


Of the many, many games I have seen this year, The Witcher 3 stands out as just ridiculously ambitious, as I explained in this article. If you want to get a handle on just what a challenge CD Projekt’s Polish RPG commandos have set for themselves, you should take a look at the presentation they gave at the Eurogamer Expo last weekend. I’m not saying this game is definitely going to flatten the RPG opposition in the coming years – because they are biting off what only a monster can truly chew – but I can’t see any other icebergs as ominous or as enormous as this one.

Eyes-On: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

By Jim Rossignol on August 23rd, 2013.


The rise and rise of CDP has been a remarkable thing to watch. What we’re seeing is a studio spooling up to full power. The enormous ambition of The Witcher failed to really hit its mark, but the intention was clear. The even greater ambition of The Witcher 2 revealed CDP to be an RPG creator that was hitting its stride, as well as achieving its ambitions, and now the third game, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, threatens to outshine an entire industry with its technical and artistic prowess. Full power, I suspect, has been reached.

There’s every reason for scepticism at this early, hype-manufacturing stage, but what we saw at Gamescom this year suggests that The Witcher 3 could be the most important mainstream game of 2014. If nothing else the rather blunt claim of “a world thirty-five times the size of The Witcher 2″ should get our attention.

The Witcher 3′s Bleak Cinematic Trailer

By Jim Rossignol on August 14th, 2013.


It’s sort of difficult to understand why a game as good looking as The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt would rely on a CGI trailer, because it’s simply doesn’t need it. Do these things even sell games? I know I buy because of the way the game looks when it plays, but do people get excited by story shine? I mean, it’s is really, really well done, but…

Feast Your Eyes On The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Gallery

By Craig Pearson on June 27th, 2013.


Odds bodkins! The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is pretty and make no mistake (the last time screenshots came out they were pretty enough to make Jim swear, but I told my mum I was on RPS this week so I’m not allowed to). It’s blooming pretty as a picture, and my codlings are tingling. They’d better festinate this game out ASAP, I don’t want to be sat here rod-jockeying while I’m waiting for it to arrive. Say hello to my mum, everyone!

Greased Lightning: Witcher 2 Semi-Official Combat Mod Out

By Alec Meer on June 20th, 2013.

Here’s a wee piece of software with an odd status. On the one hand, it’s billed merely as a mod for CD Projekt’s mostly splendid RPG The Witcher 2. Yeah, yeah, people do that for roleplaying games all the time. On the other hand, the mod is made by CDP staffers, so it sort of becomes a sort of kind of official update, sort of. Kind of. “This is a private afterwork project. It is not a patch”, says the description, sternly.

Its primary focus is to remix the way combat works in the game – specifically, “to increase Geralt’s responsiveness and mobility.” We’ve reported on its planned existence recently already, but now we can report on its actual existence. As in, go download this massive sonuvagun right now.
