If they turned Witcher into an mmorpg would you play it?

    The world and magic systems (not just the limited magic the Witcher can do) are interesting and deep enough to support it. I'd definitely check it out.

    Just don't tell me about it until it's a couple of months from launch. I'm totally burnt out on the trend started when KS became a thing of updates up the yin yang announcing the tiniest details.

    No.  The franchise works fine as single-player games.

    Only if some of you guys played too.

    Vault-Tec analysts have concluded that the odds of worldwide nuclear armaggeddon this decade are 17,143,762... to 1.

    Nope I wouldn't.
    We should not ask for every SP franchise/experience to have MP, turned into GAAS or become MMO's.
    It has a way of messing them up more than enhancing them. 

    I quite like my SP games and most wouldn't benefit from adding more people with me.

    No, I would not play it. I'm completely burned out and done with the medieval themed video games.

    This +1, so a NO from me as well

    I absolutely could not say for sure.

    If they based the game off of the GURPS RPG system, then I'd play it in a heartbeat, but if it's just yet another in one of thousands of Level/Class based D&D style systems, then I'll pass.  There are already plenty of those to go around and I've invested time in them already.

    You don't build characters in D&D, you build classes and I'm completely burned out on the Level/Class system of advancement.

    I would definatly play it (unless it was a mobile crossover F2P piece of crap like the new Lotro MMO)

    I love the world and the characters.

    No. I can’t get into / don’t like the single player games - so making it an MMO with other people and charging me a monthly fee to access would be a big NOPE.

    Absolutely.  And most of the people saying No here probably would end up playing it too, since we're all here waiting for great MMOs.  You gotta try it to know, right?

    Way to do it is to change the era.  The world is established as is the history to a large extent, simply choose the right era you want to work with, build the lore structure of that period (so much of the artwork is done beautifully in the single person game) and create/balance the classes.  Yeah there's more too like the combat has to be made engaging enough and all that but the artwork advantage is profound from a business perspective.

    Would not surprise me at all if they went that route and I do expect it to happen.

    As to the classes sure you can have Witchers in fact to not have them is ridiculous and would be a failure in vision.  They're basically a melee class with some spells whoopideedoo.  Class balance is required as always in an MMO so they're just one of many classes I would hope.

    if the endgame pve was good, sure.

    It totally depends on how it is done.

    My automatic reaction is no. Since I bet it will have all the current MMORPG standards. Like a cash shop and quest hubs and be the WoWitcher or worse.


    If they do something new and have living story 2.0 from Guild Wars 2 and actual dynamic events that change the world, like curses or the curing of said curses and story elements with some kind of automatic story generation new amazing Witcher stuff that is awesome. Crazy magic system...

    Basically id it was dubbed the Holy Grail of what CDProjekt Red has ever done and they nail it out of the park with a great new innovation in the Witcher world... then yes.

    What I think they should do first is a 4 player multiplayer witcher game that you could go thru the story and expand on the voting system SWTOR used for its quests. I would be totally on board for just some multiplayer Witcher 3 type game.

    I Would throw a few coins into the making of the game even.. Concidering that to be throwing my Witcher a coin.

    A Witcher mmorpg?

    Hell ya

    The Witcher world in an mmorpg could be awesome, just forget about Geralt and company cutscenes.

    Doesn’t need them.
