Publisher CD Projekt RED confirms The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt as the final iteration of the series, set to take place in a large open world environment. To celebrate, the publisher has put previous Witcher titles on sale for three days.

CD Projekt RED announced the latest iteration of their The Witcher franchise this evening via press release. The new title, named The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, will be the “final Witcher game from the studio”.  The press release does not confirm if this will be the final The Witcher title, however.

Players will take the role of a witcher who seeks to “save his loved ones.”

The press release also notes that the game will feature an open world environment, describing it as, “larger than any other in [role-playing game] history.” Players will be able to sail ships, as well as take advantage of horses to traverse the landscape. There will also be no quick-time events.

Head of CD Projeckt RED, Adam Badowski said, “Players will freely travel through woods, lakes, mountains, cities, and villages. Each region is inhabited by distinct populations with their own customs, legends and problems.  The world of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is [thirty] times bigger than The Witcher 2.” Badowski continues, adding that, “[Y]ou can explore freely with no artificial boundaries. The war-ravaged world is so huge that to reach further places you will need to ride a horse or sail a boat to get there. A world where your choices have truly epic consequences.”

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be released in 2014. It will be launched on “all high-end platforms”. The press release does not identify the specific platforms that CD Projekt RED define as “high-end.”

Both The Witcher titles will be on sale on both GOG and Steam for half price for seventy-two hours. Xbox 360 owners will be able to purchase The Witcher 2: Enhanced Edition for £19.99/€29.99/$29.99, which has been reduced to these prices permanently.

First Metal Gear Solid Social Ops Trailer From TGS, Screenshots

The recently Metal Gear Solid: Social Ops title, announced for iOS, has finally received a trailer revealing tactical card-game based gameplay. Accompanying the trailer are a small selection of screenshots and card images.

Details for the upcoming Social Ops are scarce, but the trailer reveals titbits of information. Players will be collecting virtual cards which we see applied in battle against various bosses from the title’s Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker scenarios.

Social Ops allows players to participate in events through-out the Metal Gear saga on their mobile device. The card-battle mechanic reminds me more of the Outer Ops mechanic of Peace Walker rather than the card-battle spinoff Metal Gear Ac!d.

With Outer Ops, players dispatch soldiers to combat against another unit. The feature is simulated entirely, with the only player influence being the formation and choice of units. Decisions were based upon statistical values for each soldier. I suspect this will be how the card-battles are handled in Social Ops, if the trailer is anything to go by.
