CD Projekt Red has confirmed that in Witcher 3, you can play with a second character and the second character is none other than Ciri. There will be certain moments in the video game when you will have control of her. The role of her is crucial to the plot but you won’t be able as her for long periods of time.
Here’s what the studio has to say:
“Ciri is playable only during certain moments in the game – we introduce her to give gamers another perspective in the story to make it even more engaging,” explains the studio’s Robert Malinowski. “You won’t play as her for long periods of time, but since she’s crucial to the plot, we thought that additional insight will allow gamers to better bond with this cool character.
“We introduce Ciri as supportive narrative tool and not because of gameplay mechanics. The Witcher was always about Geralt and that has not changed, but that handful of moments when you play as Ciri provide us with glimpses of how the story feels from the other side.
“She’s a living weapon… and everyone wants to control her. This, plus she also has her own will and agenda, so it’s not just finding her that counts. I think that is the most important aspect of this character. Geralt knows Ciri since she was a child. She’s Geralt’s apprentice and they have a close emotional bond – he trained her so she could become a witcheress.”
CD Projekt Red also revealed a new high definition screenshot of Ciri and if you ask me, She’s looking just amazing. The screenshot, however gave us a sneak peak of how beautiful the textures are in the game. So, are you excited for the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt? Let us know in the comments.
