Take a closer look at The Witcher 3's brave new open world


CD Projekt RED offers a tantalizing peek at the RPG's expansive environments

In the latest developer diary video for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, senior level designer Peter Gelencser and fellow CD Projekt RED team members walk us through some of the new features we'll be seeing in the next installment of the notoriously beautiful ARPG series.

Topics covered include everything from the different modes of transportation available to Geralt, to the hundreds of individual points of interest that the developers have placed in the world for you to discover, as well as some incredibly exciting-looking monster hunting.

Geralt's stunning new open world looks to be packed with interesting places to explore and unique NPCs to interact with. While it's far too early to make any kind of informed comparison, I'm definitely getting the impression that the studio's take on the open-world RPG may be more to my liking than Bethesda's. Only time will tell, though.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is scheduled for release next February for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
