CD Projekt RED, developer behind the Witcher series of games, and GOG.com, the leading destination for the best DRM-free games on PC and Mac, will air a livestream on Thursday June 5 to reveal new gameplay footage and pre-order details for the upcoming role-playing game, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, the studio has announced today.
The final episode of the award-winning RPG series, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, is the last part of the legend of Geralt of Rivia. Players come into the game where it is set in the aftermath of the events of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings. It is the combination of several elements in the storyline, which include the Nilfgaard’s invasion into the Northern Kingdoms. Now that those who wanted Geralt have now gone, follow on the new quest to get rid of the Wild Hunt and encountering:
The Wild Hunt has always been thought to presage war, great plagues and death. Their origin unknown, these phantasmal riders instilled fear in the hearts of men and are believed to be able to steal people’s spirits that would later join the ghastly cavalcade. They come at night, in the winter and their appearance is always preceded by the aurora borealis.
In The Witcher 3, the Wild Hunt are not mere bosses at the end of a corridor. They’re part of the lore, part of the system of folk beliefs, they’re both something that children say stories about to scare each other and an entity that can wipe out entire villages in one night. The Wild Hunt is essential to the whole Witcher universe and in The Witcher 3 it will finally take centre stage.
The ones who command the Hunt remain a mystery even bigger than the Hunt itself. Their number and purpose are shrouded with mystery, their cold steel however, is not-many have witnessed the Hunt’s atrocities, almost none survived to tell the tale
This livestream event is known as the Summer Conference, and the livestream will include details on the Collector’s Edition of The Witcher 3 and the future of GOG.com, in particular with new technology that would take it to the next level. The host of this event will be CD Projekt co-founder Marcin Iwiński together with the GOG.com team.
“If you think you’ve seen it all, we hope we’ll make you think again,” said Marcin Iwiński.
The livestream of the Summer Conference, which will be broadcasting from Los Angeles, will begin at 11 a.m. PDT. You can watch the livestream online on both the Witcher website and GOG.com. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has set a release for February 2015 on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.
