The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt New Playable Character Details Released
It had been hinted at before that gamers would get the chance to play as a new character other than Geralt in the upcoming The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Today, CD Projekt RED released some information about Ciri, the ashen-haired girl from an ancient prophecy. She plays an important role in the Witcher lore and it is up to Geralt to find her before anyone else can.
Ciri, a descendant from a long-lost Elven-blood lineage, is more than just some random character in the Witcher lore. She is a weapon, one capable of healing the world or destroying it. So it’s no surprise to learn that the Wild Hunt and the Empire of Nilfgaard have their sights set on finding Ciri. She is a very skilled swordswoman with skills that are unlocked as you play, as well as a mythical power that CD Projekt RED has yet to unveil to us. Despite Ciri being a playable and important character, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is still about Geralt and the choices you make to affect his story.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is set to release on May 19, 2015 for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
