The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Dev Talks Graphics, Weapons, World Size and More


The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is getting close to its release and Level Designer Miles Tost is answering many of the fans' question via Twitter and reveals some very interesting information.

In response as to whether there are any collectibles included in the game, Tost responds that there is tons of loot as well as over 140 Gwent cards, which is a new card minigame, to collect and build you own decks with.

Not all of the houses are accessible to Geralt, as that would have been less believable, but there are plenty of interior areas in the game.

There is a big variety of weapons including multiple swords, crossbows, bombs and other types of melee weapons, and magic.

With the fan comment that he was disappointed but the limited amount of weapons found in Shadow of Mordor and hopes that the Witcher 3 includes a larger variety, Tost reassures that fans will be very happy with the weapons available in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

Crossbows can be used on all kinds of enemies, in free aim and have a long-range.

The difficulty setting you choose depends on the way in which you want to experience the game, mainly for the story or a difficult challenge.

For those that want to enjoy the story a lower difficulty setting is suggested as theΒ higher difficulty levels can be really challenging.

In response as to what hardware was the IGN First 15 minute video running on, Miles Tost said that he believes it was on PC at high settings.

Ultra setting is available on the PC version, as well as some additional Nvidia features like Hairworks that push visual fidelity even further.

Tost explains that the size of the world was not reduced, and that he will add even more areas to explore with the two expansions.

The expansions will feature an entirely new region called Toussaint.

In response as to whether blood and gore can be disabled in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Miles Tost answers that graphic finishers can be turned off but he is not aware if blood can be disabled completely.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is set to release on May 19 2015 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. We will bring you any new information as soon as it becomes available. Be sure to check out our previous coverage on the game for more information here and here.
