The Open World of The Witcher 3: Return of the Super Potato Brothers
Interview - posted by Infinitron on Sat 16 February 2013, 19:04:21Tags: CD Projekt; The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
Game Informer's series of Witcher 3 interviews continues. This time, the Tomaszkiewicz brothers are back to talk about the game's open world, and how it will compare with other open world games. Did you know that they could have implemented horse riding in The Witcher 2?
The gist of the video is that The Witcher 3's open world will be "like Skyrim but less generic". The brothers make a point of emphasizing that the minor sidequests Geralt encounters while on the road will be just as non-generic as the main quest. It's nice that they recognize that Fallout: New Vegas has already done what they're trying to do. CD Projekt believe they can do an even better job, though. Their intention is to develop open world creation as one of the company's core competencies, with Cyberpunk 2077 directly building on the lessons learned during the development of The Witcher 3.
