The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’s Cinematic Intro – Trail of the Crow
CD Projekt Red has released the intro cutscene for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, featuring Geralt of Rivia and Vesemir on the tail of Yennefer of Vengerberg.
The cinematic intro for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt features Geralt of Rivia hot on the chase of his old flame, Yennefer of Vengerberg, an extremely powerful witch. The cutscene features Geralt tracing the path Yennefer took through a massive battlefield. She mainly took an avoidant route through most of the fight, but, when push came to shove, she proved herself to be an unrivaled mage. She picked up a rock and threw it into a battalion of oncoming soldiers, exploding upon impact. The explosion then changed into a massive fog bank that had a massive creature within it, eating the soldiers caught in it. The ground then split, swallowing everything up within the fog and allowing Yennefer safe passage. The intro also has Yennefer's summoned raven going through the eye of a would-be attacker and out the back of his head. While we are shown Yennefer's actions on the battlefield, Geralt is seen retracing her footsteps days later.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will launch on Feb. 24, 2015 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
