We haven't heard much about The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
since the unfortunate news that it was getting delayed until next year
. Luckily for us, CD Projekt RED have decided to tease us a little bit more about what The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
will have to offer. The focus is on General Eredin, one of the more ominous leaders we will be encountering:
The Wild Hunt has always been thought to presage war, great plagues and death. Their origin unknown, these phantasmal riders instilled fear in the hearts of men and are believed to be able to steal people’s spirits that would later join the ghastly cavalcade. They come at night, in the winter and their appearance is always preceded by the aurora borealis.
In The Witcher 3, the Wild Hunt are not mere bosses at the end of a corridor. They’re part of the lore, part of the system of folk beliefs, they’re both something that children say stories about to scare each other and an entity that can wipe out entire villages in one night. The Wild Hunt is essential to the whole Witcher universe and in The Witcher 3 it will finally take centre stage.
The ones who command the Hunt remain a mystery even bigger than the Hunt itself. Their number and purpose are shrouded with mystery, their cold steel however, is not-many have witnessed the Hunt’s atrocities, almost none survived to tell the tale
The mysteries surrounding the Hunt and its leaders grow every time we read about it, but hopefully we will have more to share with you about this game very soon. The Witcher 3:Wild Hunt
is still set for a release in February 2015.
