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.

  • 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.

  • KennethMorca

    we want trailer like graphics in game ! screw consoles they are only holding it back with low hardware spec

  • AlexReynard

    Huh. That bird just birded that guy in the face.

  • Izamanaick

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

  • Gavin McHendry

    Geralt searching for Yennefer for a change xD


    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

  • Hawk

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

  • zero one

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

  • NViaan

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

  • 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 :)

  • trololololo

  • rami live

  • Raz Raptre

    Getting it for my birthday XD

  • 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!!

  • InvalidShortcut

    Will Ubisoft do optimization for PC ? ;)

  • Aiendhrew D

    In game that is not the face of Yennefer :(

  • 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

  • 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

  • The God Emperor of Mankind

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

  • Vadim Kaminskiy

    На 35й секунде Геральт внезапно стал Зуевым.


    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

  • cool_mind

    give me these graphics in game or bust

  • Wednesday My dudes

    What happened with raven?

  • Rhys Favaloro

    Sooo hyped, so excited <3!

  • DrOver Lord

    Pre-ordered and looking forward to it

  • pissedoffatyt

    now this is a proper game. 

  • ChrzonioPL

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

  • Mihail Kongorovskiy

    what is the song name?

  • cole mason

    Is it weird that Harley Quinn kinda turns me on?

  • Richard Taylor

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

  • 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.
