The Witcher 3 dev diary teaches you how to travel the world and slay monsters

A new developer diary for CD Projekt Red's upcoming action role-playing title, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, explores how players can travel the game's vast world and hunt their foes.

The Witcher 3, which will conclude the story of Geralt of Rivia, follows his journey as he searches for a strange, deadly force known as the Wild Hunt. Along the way, Geralt will hunt down monsters using tracking skills and battle with the help of elixirs, bombs and more.

In the video above, developers such as senior level designer Peter Gelencser, senior gameplay designer Damien Monnier and quality assurance specialist Monika Gliniecka discuss traveling on foot, by horse, boat and more — and the dangers associated with each. The game's day and night system will also affect how players explore the game's world.
