The wait might be getting nigh-on unbearable but CD Projekt RED has at least flung us a bone, releasing the opening cinematic cut-scene from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. As you'd expect Geralt's return looks to be a moody experience and everything about Wild Hunt seems to be shaping up to be bigger and better than its predecessors. 

He's on the trail of his long-lost love, the powerful sorceress Yennefer, in this latest trailer, piecing together the battlefield clues near the Temerian kingdom's capital of Vizima. One thing's for sure, if you've ever wondered what a weaponised crow looks like boring through a man's entire skull then this is certainly the cinematic for you.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is out on 24th February 2015 worldwide for PC, PlayStation and Xbox One. What do you make of this latest trailer? Are we set for a darker, more intense experience for The Witcher this time around?

i know its going to be an epic couple of months but by the time i finish the witcher 3 i am probably going to resemble some sort of Gollum-looking creature that hasn't seen the light of day!

Yeah, what better way to relieve hype, than by releasing the OPENING Cinematic? xD

It is a great opening cinematic, but to be honest, it isn't nearly as epic as the one for Witcher 2 in my opinion, I feel a bit disappointed. I can't wait for the game :)

Yennifer and Triss are both stunning. How will Geralt choose between them? I would love to see a sorceress fight between these ladies. See which one is more powerful!

Ciri is pretty stunning as well, seeing as she's the blonde from the Sword of Destiny trailer.

Ciri is a daughter like figure to Geralt. Plus why fight fight when you can share them both ?

Probably have to make a choice like in Witcher 1 where it was triss or that elf that i dont remember by name shani maybe.
