New, comments

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, CD Projekt Red's upcoming Polish fantasy-inspired role-playing game, will introduce new combat options for the game's protagonist, producer Marek Ziemak told OnlySP.

According to Ziemak, Geralt of Rivia's expanded combat options will include new offensive and defensive capabilities as well as items and potions.

"You have new ways to dodge enemies and parry their blows," he said. "But also, for each magical sign, you can use two versions of it. One is extended. For example, the Igni sign has a constant flamethrower thing whereas there's also single, more destructive blow of fire. This is one of the new elements. We're also introducing new alchemical potions, and other minor elements that will change the experience."
