You don’t have to play Witcher 1 imo, that’s good for checking out a synopsis of it (which I did). I would highly recommend playing 2 though as the story is set up directly for 3 and your save will therefore carry over. Personally, I really enjoyed Witcher 2.
Focusing on the main objectives, The Witcher is around 35½ hours long. If you are a gamer who aspires to see all aspects of the game, you will probably spend about 64 hours to 100% complete it.
For gameplay, The Witcher can be played either from a bird’s-eye view or traditionally over-the-shoulder. While it took most players around 35 hours to complete the main content of the game, others spent more than 60 hours completing everything they could
The first two Witcher games are non-linear, which leads some people to believe that it’s fully open-world, and that’s not quite the case. While both offer the player small sandboxes to play with, they aren’t nearly as open as Wild Hunt with a good amount of side quests.
When you start a new game of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, you can import a save game of The Witcher by selecting “New Game” from the main menu and then “Import Witcher 1 Save”. /b> .
The Witcher 3 lore entries state that Geralt is one year younger than Yennefer, who was born in 1173. Since The Witcher 3 is set in the year 1272, Geralt would be around 98 to 99 years old (depending on his birth month).
The Witcher 4 has been officially confirmed, and while we’re pretty excited, we’re certainly not surprised. There has been no shortage of rumors of another Witcher game from CD Projekt Red, and the studio has commented on the possibility on numerous occasions.
Not really. The two games are almost mutually exclusive in terms of story, with only small parts connecting the two. Very little of what happens in Witcher 1 is even mentioned in Witcher 2. If you’re expecting a big connection à la Mass Effect, this doesn’t happen.
There are 5 chapters + the prologue in Kaer Morhen.
You can skip The Witcher 1 and 2
The Witcher 1 and 2 are not required at all. That’s not to say they aren’t good games, but to start fresh with a canon of their own separate from the books, CD Projekt Red gave Geralt Amnesia at the start of the first game.
Sword of Destiny – 385 pages, 13 days reading time. Blood of Elves – 324 pages, 11 days reading time. Time of Contempt – 337 pages, 11 days to read.
“It has been confirmed that 3 hours = a full day is in game.” They further noted that a full day in The Witcher 3 lasts approximately 1 hour and 36 minutes, meaning Cyberpunk 2077’s day length is nearly twice that of CD Projekt’s previous blockbuster Red
First of all, it’s quite a bit shorter. The Witcher 2 can be beaten in less than 30 hours even with a handful of side quests. The Witcher 3 takes at least 50 hours of your time and can be stretched to well over 100 hours if you like to be distracted.
Hard Drive: 15 GB free.
While the concept of a Witcher 1 remake draws little buzz, CDPR has confirmed that it is still pushing development on its “two core franchises, namely The Witcher and Cyberpunk, so one girl it can dream.
