I have been a big fan of The Witcher series ever since I tried out the first one back in 2007 at a friend's recommendation. Since then, I have been following Andrzej Sapkowski's work on The Witcher novels and closely following CD Projekt RED's development of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
The Northern Realms of The Witcher has been expanded to include a wider variety of regions, a new battle system, and an even higher graphic fidelity than before. The Xbox One version will also support Kinect voice commands for switching items and weapons in combat. After seeing the amazing capabilities of the REDengine, I thought that CD Projekt RED would not be able to top the visuals of The Witcher 2. I have never been happier to be wrong.
