The hardened fantasy gamer base is eagerly looking forward to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, the latest release from a franchise, which has failed to strike the right chord in a way that other leading RPG’s such as Skyrim and Dragon Age have done. Singled out as being one of the finest games of recent times, The Witcher series has had its own share of loyals and a fan base. A lot of game aficionados really enjoyed playing the role of the terse hunter that Geralt is, which other gamers reckon as a seriously complicated, adult-like affair that should have been diluted a little.
However, The Witcher 3 is making a lot of waves, and is more than likely to turn the attention of gamers smitten with Dragon Age, and ready for their next taste of fantasy role-play.
Since the release of the previous version- The Witcher 2-, the approach of the gamer society as regards fantasy has changed a great deal. Much similar to the recent changes in the real estate market of Bangalore that are having its say in the flats in Bangalore. In fact, the genre where Dragons and Dungeaons were a commonplace is now too mainstream. The Gen Y teens who were ready to flaunt off their bows, swords, with a stroke of wizardry have turned into ardent supporters of top-notch stuff like Game of Thrones. With more and more number of Gen Y Teens starting to like the Game of Thrones, it is more likely that The Witcher 3 will be well received. After all it has got all the things that they all know much about- power, sex, politics, betrayal and violence.
The availability of The Witcher 3 on PS4 as well as Xbox One and Desktop versions has only made its release all the more interesting. In terms of competition, BioWare’s Dragon Age: Inquisition may come close, however, with The Witcher 3’s release scheduled to happen in May, plenty of time is going to be available for gamers to enjoy their share of Inquisition and get set for Geralt’s journey. The makers of this game are expected to have lived up to the hallmark of the gaming production standards that they have set for themselves.
Although CD Projekt RED has risked satisfying the core fans that made the original game the huge success that it turned out to be, it appears that it has danced to the tunes of the growing console market. And, they are all set to dish out a staunch gaming experience, made exclusive to hardcore gamers- who never seem to get enough of the joyful and fascinating ride that this sort of a fantasy offers.
