Witcher 3 to have 36 Endings...

DeathspankDeathspank Memphis, TNPosts: 137Member Common

IGN interviews co-founder of the CD Projekt on the Witcher 3 : Wild hunt.

Main points..

- Game world 30 times the size of older Witcher games.

- Main story playthrough clocks at 50 hrs, 100-120 hrs with side quests

- More monster hunting

- 36 different endings

- Release of the REDkit after game launch for player made mods.

- Releasing this year.

Check out the article for more stuff.

This just gets better and better. I have no doubt that they will also release an Enhanced Edition for this like they did with the previous 2 games completely free. Just wish more game devs were like these guys and not like the money grabbing scum you'll find at EA and Capcom.

    A missing one from the main points: it will be DRM-free (at least in sane and decent places, like gog.com or the boxed version in the stores. For those who plan to buy it on steam... well, those are already brain-steamed so who cares :) )

     

    For the different endings, great to see that concept again. Based on their previous works it definitely won't be a ME-like "same ending in 36 different colours" :)

    Good ol' times, my favourite was Shadow of Memories (though it's an adventure not an rpg), where the different endings opened up choice options in the next playthrough, and every ending added some pieces to the big picture.

     

    On the bottom of the first page of the interview, I hope they don't referring a dumbing down...

    (Snickers) We call this the Eastern European immersion curve, where we throw players straight into the deep end. On a more serious note, while I was going through some of the reviews, I read that certain Western journalists died multiple times in the prologue itself, and that wasn’t a good thing.   (sidenote: lol, the n00bz)

    Obviously, our core audience is the RPG gamer, but we're looking to expand that demographic with gamers who just want to follow the main story, and have a satisfying hack-and-slash experience.     yep, that's a bit concerning.

    I wonder how many of those 36 will be happy endings?

    :P

    It's probably going to be 36 end states, not the endings themselves. I remember the same miscommunication happened with Witcher 2 and its 16 endings.

    Nature without Technology is little more than animals running about.
    Nature without Magic is without wonder or miracle.
    .........
    Magic without Technology is fantasy.
    Magic without Nature is formless and useless.
    .........
    Technology without Nature is application without understanding.
    Technology without Magic is repetitious and uninventive.

    Course this is the witcher series. So 1 not too bad endings and 35 bad endings. :P

    When it comes to CD Projekt RED nothing is to ambitious they are the kings of Europe when it comes to RPGs. TW3 will be RPG game of the year imo or come second to Dark Souls 2.
