The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will offer great replay value thanks to a branching storyline which promises to exclude certain parts of the game depending on the decisions players make.

"The Witcher 3 is full of impactful decisions, and gamers will choose between storylines that exclude one another in a single playthrough, ensuring extensive replay value," said Adam Badowski, head of CD projekt RED studio.

"The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt crowns the trilogy with the main narrative, revolving around Geralt's search for his loved ones and his conflict with the Wild Hunt. As players travel through the game, they visit lands with their own unique atmosphere, communities and memorable characters. CD Projekt RED didn't create an open world with a singular theme, but concentrated on delivering diversified and engaging environments, 30 times larger than those in The Witcher 2."

The main The Witcher 3 narrative is said to account for around 50 hours of gameplay in one playthrough, and the additional stories promise to add another 50 hours of role playing.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be released in 2014 on all high-end platforms, including PS4.
