Ahead of its launch, Bandai Namco gave us the chance to go hands-on with the final build The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on the PS4. Having been able to preview the game back in January, I jumped at the chance to once again play through it, and see just how far it had come.
NOTE: Before continuing, I highly encourage you to first read my preview here. A great deal of what I said back then remains true today.
To quote myself, “Geralt of Rivia makes his return as the central character, a great Witcher whose skill and prowess has earned him much respect and fear.”
Being the third instalment in the franchise, there are of course references to Geralt’s adventures in past games. However, Wild Hunt provides a fresh storyline that allows newcomers to get a grasp on the story without too much difficulty. That can certainly be said of myself, as the Witcher 3 served with my only interaction with the franchise, and yet, it was easy to figure out what was going on.
