The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - “The Trail” Opening Cinematic - Eurogamer

Foreshadowing the story of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, The Trail Opening Cinematic is an epic sneak peek into the adventure that awaits gamers in Wild Hunt. See witchers Geralt of Rivia and his mentor Vesemir pursue Geralt’s long lost love, the immensely powerful, raven-black-haired sorceress -- Yennefer of Vengerberg.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a story-driven, next-generation open world role-playing game, set in a graphically stunning fantasy universe, full of meaningful choices and impactful consequences. In The Witcher, you play as Geralt of Rivia, one of a dying caste of monster hunters, and embark on an epic journey in a war-ravaged world that will inevitably lead you to confront a foe darker than anything humanity has faced so far—the Wild Hunt.

  • Izamanaick

    If this was ubisoft they'd turn this into the first mission.

  • gtabro1337

    This is the game with the smallest difference between its CGI trailers graphics and the in-game ones. If that doesn't speak a ton, then I don't know what.

  • NViaan

    Muzyka idealnie współgra z niesamowitym tłem...Solidna oraz dobra polska robota!

  • Gavin McHendry

    Geralt searching for Yennefer for a change xD

  • zero one

    So why Yen killing Nilfgaardian cavalry? Isnt she suppose to work with them?

  • Hawk

    any one knows what polka says at the start of song it sounds cool


    This truly gives off a Maleficent vibe!"A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman with stunning black wings, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army of humans threatens the harmony of the land. Maleficent rises to be the land's fiercest protector, but she ultimately suffers a ruthless betrayal - an act that begins to turn her pure heart to stone. Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces an epic battle with the king of the humans...."

  • Nicholas Compton

    Apparently Yennefer has found a better use for her black kestrels than delivering messages lol

  • trololololo

    1:16 it's could be great total war trailer :P

  • Bandito

    I can't wait for this :D I haven't played any Witcher games before and I think I should play Witcher 2 before this one just to get a feeling of it :)

  • Raz Raptre

    Getting it for my birthday XD

  • rami live

    Can some one from poland translate the song, it will be nice :)

  • Nocturn

    would be cool to have ingame a cloak :D.

  • Nightwish Master

    Don't get too hyper over this, it won't look anything like the trailer. Mark my words!!

  • Aiendhrew D

    In game that is not the face of Yennefer :(

  • InvalidShortcut

    Will Ubisoft do optimization for PC ? ;)

  • PIK AChU

    АЗАЗАЗАЗАЗАЗАЗААЗ что енто такое? Ита не егра, эта гамно. Вот майнкрафт рулет а это что? Пред Сабачи

  • Minh Kha

    If they can make a game that long, they can make a movie js

  • The God Emperor of Mankind

    If only Yen was actually good in the game instead of being a bitch all the time.

  • Whysely

    While not as good as Killing Monsters I guess it's pretty good, but it falls under that same category as the first two wow cinematics, trailers whos only purpose is to show off something visually appealing without much of a flowing narrative, it doesnt tell us anything we didn't already know and what it shows isn't really anything breath taking

  • cool_mind

    give me these graphics in game or bust


    The female vocal in the soundtrack sounds like Anna Murphy's voice. :O

  • Icchan

    Yay, true 21:9 aspect ratio! Also, the trailer was pretty cool too.

  • John Smith

    Delayed till may now ..... cant wait , take your time devs, make it awesome :D

  • DrOver Lord

    Pre-ordered and looking forward to it

  • pissedoffatyt

    now this is a proper game. 

  • Vadim Kaminskiy

    На 35й секунде Геральт внезапно стал Зуевым.

  • Rhys Favaloro

    Sooo hyped, so excited <3!

  • ChrzonioPL

    Did Temeria lost the war because of Yen? She destroyed their cavalry in this battle

  • Mihail Kongorovskiy

    what is the song name?

  • Wednesday My dudes

    What happened with raven?

  • Richard Taylor

    seemed a little pointless to me?perhaps I missed the meaning lol

  • cole mason

    Is it weird that Harley Quinn kinda turns me on?

  • Simon


  • Gorazd

    Kurwa, Vesemir is still alive!

  • Nick Andrews

    I liked it but the vocals were a bit overdun and not entirely necessary the trailer would have been just as good without them. I hope the whole game isnt you listening to these woman wail the whole time. I'm only concerned because ever since the second trailer all they have done is had music with wailing woman...

  • Harrison11106

    I so hope that's Yennefer, not sure who the guy with Geralt was though.
