The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

CD Projekt RED has released a new Dev Diary video today. With The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt a mere 2 weeks, the developer is looking to give gamers a bit of an edge with some inside information. Dubbed the “Monsters” Dev Diary, some of the title’s lead artists and designers got together to go over the beasts you’ll be facing, and a few tactics to help take them down.

Damien Monnier, Senior Gameplay Designer on the project, helps to define the importance of strategy in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt:

“In order to become the best monster hunter, you must first learn how to understand your foes – where they can be found, their attack pattern, and what they fear. And it is your job to figure out the best way to kill them.”

The Dev Diary does a great job of giving basic hints without spoiling too much. The developers touch on ways to take down a variety of beasts. Be they specific to air, water, swamp – or even just run of the mill werewolves. Each monster has their own unique strengths and weaknesses, and learning they is key to your survival and success.

“In order to become the best monster hunter, you must first learn how to understand your foes.”
