Geralt of Rivia returns for one final hunt in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

CD Projekt RED unveiled the newest gameplay trailer for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt during Microsoft's E3 press conference on Monday. While the trailer is pretty standard, showing off the high visual fidelity the series has been known for since The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, there are also several shots entirely in CG. Like their previous Cyberpunk 2077 trailer, CD Projekt RED managed to sneak a small message in the trailer right before the title unveil. Below is a screen capture of that message, but if you can't make it out, the entire message is posted below. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is due sometime in 2014 for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

Dear Gamers,

Once again, we're here with a super sneaky hidden message! We couldn't resist doing something crazy on such a big occasion! :) We're uber-excited to be a part of this groundbreaking moment in gaming history!

The CD Projekt RED rep you saw on stage was both anxious and excited - after you see this message, let him know that he was great by tweeting us @witchergame and using the #e3witcher hashtag :). Today, you got your first glimpse of gameplay footage from TW3. Though no developer was harmed during the making of this video, we did work ourselves to the bone and put a LOT of heart into making all this happen. There's still a long road ahead and your feedback, comments[,] and love are needed to fuel our passion so that we can make The Witcher 3:Wild Hunt a really great game. Head on over to our forums, hell, send us letters if you want to - just be with us! We need you :).

The Debut Gameplay Trailer contains some hints about new game mechanics we'll be introducing in The Witcher 3. Manage to spot them? Go to the forums, there's probably many a discussion about them by now :).

By the way, notice the 4 CGI takes in the trailer? Yeah, they're part of something bigger... Curious? Try here: www.thewitcher.com/KillingMonsters

We released another video today: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - The Beginning, in which team members introduce you to the game, share a lot of their passion and give insight on some of the things that inspire us. Some breathtaking vistas and vivid landscapes in there - try to guess where we shot it.

Thank you for your support so far! Play video games, they're awesome!

The Witcher3: Wild Hunt Dev Team

P.S.: Hell yeah!
