The Witcher 3's Intro Cutscene Has All The Special Effects

Another bad day for Geralt

What is a roleplaying game without an extravagant pre-rendered introductory cutscene these days, eh? One I can start playing that much quicker, that's what. But The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt means to take its place in the RPG premiership, and it's got the CGI to prove it. Killings! Fire! Vast armies! Decapitated horsies! Devouring earth! Tribal drums! Yodelling! Beardmen!


Shiny. Dramatic. Bit Game of Thronesy? Well, what isn't these days?

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is out in February, by which point we'll presumably have sated Dragon Age hunger, so good timing in theory. Devs CD Projekt are aiming really big with this one - let's hope they can pull it off.
