Part 2 of an interview with the guys at CD Projekt who are working on The Witcher has been posted at Firing Squad.
The gameplay has been entirely modified as well. Weâ€™ve given up the turn-based system and implemented frantic and spectacular real-time fights enhanced with a range of graphical effects, like blood splattering on various surfaces (walls, floors), and â€˜coup de graceâ€™ bullet time effects. Another set of changes involves the increase in the number of animations â€“ the opponents will now dodge, fake hits and attack in a variety of ways. Next to the additional character animations we decided to add non-interactive cut-scenes to help us tell the story â€“ a system of pre-directed movies and dialogues with an emphasis on unique and personalized character mimics/expressions. Add to that professionally dubbed actors and youâ€™ll have a fully-fledged, living world to hop into.Gave up the turn based system? That must have been pretty easy.
