Previews to The Witcher 3 have become available as of yesterday with many fans getting their first proper look at the title.
The German website World of Players mined a PCGames Preview of the title and complied together screenshots and information from the game, with details ranging from a rough release date to movement in the world. Many details are both points of praise and concern and seem to suggest some considerable changes within the title.
The most notable of these is the mention of a much more expansive world and heightened agility, with a few aspects resembling more of something you’d expect to find in Skyrim than a Witcher title. As well as hunting monsters and animals for fur, meat and resources, Geralt is now capable of climbing many objects in the environment and using boats and horses to traverse the landscape. Do not expect to be able to grind up levels from hunting, however, as experience is going to be earned exclusively through the completion of missions with a level cap of 60. Alongside this there is now a fast travel option available, which, as you would expect, gives you the ability to quickly move to locations you had previously visited.
