Braving The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's First Three Hours
Our recent hands-on session with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt didn't begin on a beast-infested battlefield, but in a bathtub. That's right: The titular monster-slayer – fabled for his ability to silence the most lethal abominations from behind a silver blade – is enjoying a hot soak at the game's start. But CD Projekt RED's ambitious action-role-playing game needn't open with an epic battle sequence to prove its protagonist's creature-crushing prowess. No, that point is more effectively conveyed by the quick glimpse we catch of Geralt of Rivia's bare back; a tapestry of ugly scars stretching from his shoulders to his waist, the old wounds say more than any combat encounter ever could.
