CD Projekt RED is proud to show for the first time to the public The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt “Killing Monsters” cinematic trailer, a thrilling insight into the morally ambiguous universe of Geralt of Rivia.
“Killing Monsters” portrays the cruel and gritty world of The Witcher and foreshadows the mature mood of the upcoming story-driven RPG, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
“Actions speak louder than words. We wanted the short movie to communicate that Geralt, despite being seen as a sellsword by many, has his own code of conduct and operates outside of the dirty morality of the world he lives in” - said Adam Badowski, Head of CD Projekt RED.
“Killing Monsters was a great opportunity to show the ambience of No Man’s Land - one of the vast areas in the game that the players will visit during their adventure. The overwhelming feeling of despair can be quite shocking, especially when you consider who the real monster is.” - Badowski added.
I'm not the biggest fan of cinematics for video games, feeling it doesn't show you much of the game, but since seeing gameplay immediately afterward this trailer set the perfect tone. Hopefully we'll be seeing them reveal more and more gameplay as the game gets closer to release because what they showed at E3 was outstanding. If interested, you can check out the original gameplay E3 trailer, some (at the time) new screenshots from the game and our breakdown of the demo HERE.
