The lights are on
CD Projekt RED's upcoming The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is one of
the biggest and most promising RPGs coming to new-gen systems this year. If you
haven't played the previous installments of the series, now's your chance to
check them out for free.
Steam users have until Sunday, 1:00PM PST to play The
Witcher Enhanced Edition and The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings to their heart's
content. Granted, you probably couldn't get through one of the massive RPGs in
a single weekend, let alone both, but it should give you a good idea of the series'
world and gameplay.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is currently scheduled to release
sometime in 2014 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. For more on the game, check out our list of promising improvements coming to the sequel, or click the banner below to visit our Witcher 3 hub.
CD Projekt RED has stayed pretty
tightlipped about The Witcher 3, and as such it seems to have fallen off the
radar of many gamers. Given its ambitious scope and the fact that it's only
coming to new-gen systems, I'm guessing it's going to take a lot of players by
surprise when it finally gets here.
