The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt‘s opening cinematic – titled The Trail – has just been released.
The Trail sees Geralt and his mentor Vesemir on the trail of Yennefer of Vengerberg, an old flame of Geralt’s… who just happens to be a vastly powerful sorceress. What this mostly means is that you get a cinematic of Geralt and Vesemir looking moodily at various bits of scenery, and then the scene changes to show how those relate to what Yennefer did there. And “what Yennefer did there” usually relates either to running, or ludicrous magical doom.
Expect armies clashing, magic death crows, woman-made storms, and more. You can have a look at the cinematic below.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is due out on 24 February 2015.
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
