So who's the blonde girl?

Or guy perhaps?

Correct.

There is, from what I'm reading. Mounted combat is iffy, but horseback is important as the game is open-world.

Ok for now I will just read it and post the good bits. Give me a bit.

Who is that with Geralt? They have blonde/white hair so it can't be Triss and Yennefer has black hair

Another Witcher?

Aww shit

edit: they have a silver sword too

It's definitely Ciri, since that person is too small to be either Triss or Yenifer.

She's not really that much of a Mary Sue

But she did inherit a massive amount of magical power from her late mother

What is this? Awesome.

Am I just rusty, or am I not supposed to know who Geralt is riding with?

I like.


Also, one of the other books is finally being translated/published, so something else to look forward to.

A witcher I take it from the sword on the horse, certainly not raven haired Yennefer or Triss, but it does have sort of a female shape, sorta.

Are there even female witchers in the books?

Ways to improve an already great character design= Give him a badass druid beard. At first glance it seems that the other character is a witcher since it has a silver blade but it seems he/she is carring Geralt's. Screw Ciri, I want Shani back. :/

Also, positive beard reception is important, guys, so keep it up. If it gets negative feedback they will change it, like bronze Geralt from early W2 media.

I've only read the first 2 books but Ciri was trained like a witcher.

If it's Ciri, it's actually quite possible that she could be playable.

When Geralt "died", Ciri became one of the central characters of the Witcher stuff.

That's definitely a silver sword, but it looks like Geralt is only wearing a steel sword. Maybe the horse is just carrying his sword? Also, someone remind me who Ciri is. Was she just mentioned in the books? I vaguely remember hearing the name Ciri, but I don't have a clue who she is.

The books might have mentioned it, but the TV series had some. One of Geralt's mentors in the series was actually a female witcher.

He boned her

Ciri had a sword:

"A gwyhyr is a splendid gnomish sword, regarded as the best in the world. The gnomes had ceased production of these weapons more than two hundred years before the events of the saga. Gwyhyrs were forged with "dark iron" which made the blades light and sharp as a razor. They were also characterized by their undulating edge and hide covered hilts.

Leo Bonhart wanted a sword for Ciri, and he had chosen a gwyhyr from the collection of a particularly dedicated swordsmith, Esterhazy. She named it "Jaskółka" (English: Swallow; Old Tongue: Zirael)."

Though it was steel.

Well maybe she's older, as would be Geralt, now bearded and all.

Ok wow, the text is small. I don't want to miss anything good. Here's a small few things I got that I loved.

World supposedly 20% bigger than Skyrim's
30-40 minutes to cross world on Horseback
New streaming technology (CDRED Engine 3)
Geralt's Memory is restored
No chapters/acts
Dude is fucking DONE fighting for everyone else
Everything from solving MYSTERIES to slaying monsters
Coming out on "all top-of-the-line" consoles - I'd say that confirms next-gen is in.

I'll be back with more.

Is it ok to post the screens from the mag, mods?

Interesting.

That's Geralt's sword. It's a wolf's head on the hilt.

Games take place a few years after Blood of Elves, so she'd definitely be older.
