Are you ready for The Witcher 3's 200+ gameplay hours?

Already one of the most anticipated games of the year, The Witcher: Wild Hunt will feature an open world design with over 200 hours worth of gameplay. Senior Game Designer Damien Monnier tweeted earlier this week that their latest addition to the franchise will take 200+ hours to reach 100% completion.


The Witcher developers, CD Projekt Red, announced earlier this year that the idea of an "open-world with no boundaries" would lay the foundations for endless opportunities for designers.

The big Five-O

Taking into consideration the enormous amount of game time and the idea of an open-world setting, it's no surprise that The Witcher: Wild Hunt will amass a 50 GB install on PlayStation 4. Although this is just a rumour, it's completely understandable given the recent confirmed announcements. While hard drive space reservation for Xbox One has not been announced yet, we can safely assume it will be in a similar ball park. PC on the other hand will require a rumoured 40 GB of hard drive space, but this has almost become the norm when looking at latest released titles. While there has been no confirmation from Sony nor CD Projekt Red, we can safely assume the 64 square kilometer open-world RPG will require a small chunk of hard drive space.

Q & A with Damien Monnier

As mentioned above, Senior Game  Designer Damien Monnier answered a few questions on Twitter earlier this week. This isn't the first time light has been shed on the upcoming title, but this offered a much hands on delivery. Monnier provided interesting responses relating to the game's development, as well as shedding light on the involvement of Polish author Andzej Sapowski throughout the development. For those who are unaware, Sapowski is the author of the book series upon which the game's story follows. The Wticher 3: Wild Hunt, however, surpasses the current story in the book, which makes Sapowski's involvement a breath of fresh air for avid fans of the series. We've selected a few notable replies from the Q & A session on Twitter:

Of course a few more questions were answered by Damien Monnier on his Twitter Q & A. Check out his Twitter account if you're interested, but the most informative answers can be seen above.
