Wouldn’t it be nice to be playing The Witcher 3 for 100 hours when it releases? Imagine 50 hours of the main arc and 50 hours of glorious, blood-drenched, monster-filled, politics-driven side quests.
Fortunately enough for all fans of the Witcher an infographic released by CD Projekt RED has confirmed this – and many other interesting tidbits about the upcoming next-gen release.
The infographic was released to commemorate the sixth anniversary of The Witcher series. Speaking of six; that’s how many millions of units The Witcher has sold thus far. Which is quite impressive for such a dense game.
**I don’t like math, but I love some of these numbers.**
The infographic also reveals that the size of The Witcher 3‘s world is larger than the two previous games combined. And solace will soon come for those vexed by Geralt’s inability to jump (he can jump now).
Perhaps the most exciting thing displayed is the amount of dialogue included in the game thus far. For anyone who has sat through the previous installments, they will be either annoyed or delighted to know that there are more lines of dialogue in The Witcher 3 than there were in either of the previous installments. The infographic stated that The Witcher and The Witcher 2 had 20,000 and 23,000 lines of dialogue respectively. The Witcher 3, however, will have more than 30,000 lines under its belt – which means lots of decisions, lots of talking and lots of fantasy-like political jargon.
**Nobody fart. That’s how this whole thing started.**
This increase in dialogue will lead each and every person that plays it to one of 36 endings, which is more than both The Witcher and The Witcher 2 had combined.
The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt is set to release in 2014. For more on The Witcher 3 and the recently announced The Witcher comic book click here for my interview with CD Projekt RED and Dark Horse.
What are you most excited to see in The Witcher 3? Is it the increase in dialogue, or perhaps the ability to lift Geralt off the ground with a hefty jump? Sound off in the comments down below and maybe I won’t hunt you down and kill you using a plethora of really complicated dialogue trees and awesome badass potions.
