BackgroundHaving barely repulsed the armies of the South, the Northern Kingdoms fell into an unwarranted state of self-awe - spurning the alliances of yesterday and regaining their forlorn propensity to bicker amongst themselves; they readily level the tips of their swords at each others' throats in wanton accusations of treason, and all the while the enemy regroups and rejuvenates.
And where do you enter this picture, you ask? According to official reports, you're dead - killed by the very people you sought to protect. For the time being, there are more pressing matters in hand - an organized band of aggressors has somehow found the Witchers' mountain stronghold of Kaer Morhen and begun its assault in an attempt to appropriate the dangerous knowledge of Witcher elixirs. You are called upon to prevent this, as mass production of such potions would mean nothing less than doom for the common people who take them.
I wonder, how soon will you begin to regret returning from the dead?
- 80+ hours of story driven game play from the extensive main quest with multiple endings to the numerous exciting side quests and plotlines.
- Action heavy real-time combat with extensive weapon and magic specializations and highly customizable skill trees.
- Strategic use of alchemy and herbalism in which characters collect regents and create potions and enhancements.
