The opening cinematic for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is out and man oh man is it good. Here are some highlights:

  • A dude gets a crow flying at sub-sonic speed right through the eye-hole
  • A whole bunch of cavalry guys get blow’d up and buried by some epic magic
  • Things in general just get all crazy.

The trailer does this cool back-and-forth thing showing us the before and after of a witch (Sorceress? Lady-mage?) doing her thing in the heat of a battle. Flipping back and forth between her and Geralt picking up her trail in the aftermath is a subtle nod to just what kind of gameplay we can expect. Check out the trailer below and the game when it drops February 24. For more Witcher coverage click here.
