Ciri will play a big role in the game. While there are limitations to how often you can play as her, CD Projekt Red promises that she is just as formidable as Geralt in combat. Unlike Geralt, Ciri can use her blink and teleport powers in order to travel short distances while fighting enemies.
While Ciri will add new narrative routes and opportunities to the story, the Polish developer reminds players that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is still Geralt’s story.
After another delay, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will release May 19, 2015 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
I love this! It seems as though CD Projekt Red isn’t pulling any punches with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Since Ciri is presumably on the run, I think playing as her will act as a great foil after being on the hunt as Geralt.
