Today, CD Projekt RED released a new trailer for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, entitled The Sword of Destiny. The trailer includes some interesting information and glimpses into both the story and gameplay. Also, the end of the trailer included a hidden message, the transcript of which will be right here!
One of the things you may have noticed in The Witcher 2 was the distinct lack of other witchers in the game. This trailer reveals that other witchers will play a part in some way (and not just as a villain). Ciri, fans of the books will know who that is, makes an appearance (thanks Asbrand in the comments below). Let the speculation begin about what that means.
Also, Game of Thrones fans may have recognized the emperor's voice in this as Charles Dance (Tywin Lannister), so there is much to be happy about there as well.
There isn't much else to say that the trailer doesn't show you all much better anyway. But know you will get more glimpses into combat on horse, seeing more environments, and the introduction of characters. Also, don't forget to look below the video for the hidden message.
Here is the image of the hidden message. Some of it was difficult to read, and some words I couldn't make out. If you can figure them out let me know!
We've missed you!
Today you got a look at the third trailer for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. We hope you liked it!
There's so much more in this game that it's just impossible to show everything within two and a half minutes. Still we tried :)
More importantly we just showed you some of the main characters.
Geralt's close friends and some of the last witchers remaining in the world - Vesemir, Eskel and Lambert - will play a big part in the game, as well their famous fortress Kaer Morhen.
You also got a glimpse of the renowned bard Dandelion and the sorceress Triss Merigold.
Emhyr var Emreis, Emperor of Nilfgaard, the most powerful man in the world of The Witcher also made an appearance. Recognize his voice?
And then there was Ciri!
By the way, if you're new to the series, don't worry, the game will introduce you into all you need to know, and you'll start loving (and hating!) characters in no time!
Also, you've been asking us many questions about gameplay features and we're finally ready to answer some of them - so here it goes:
Yes, you will be able to fight while on horseback
The crossbow. Yup, Geralt can use ranged weapon. Because sometimes monsters fly and you can't reach them.
Remember swimming and sailing. You'll be able to dive and search for a lot of hidden stuff too. There's a whole underwater world to discover.
Horse racing anyone?
You also got to hear more music from the game. This particular track was composed by Marcin Przybyłowicz & Percival. We'd love to hear your feedback. Fire away in the comments or on the game's Facebook/Twitter/forums. Remember, we're always listening, even if we're not getting back to you.

PS. If you're still waiting for more (you are, right?), please be patient. We're just warming up.
PPS. Have you seen the Collector's Edition video? What do you think about the figure?
PPPS. We've just announced a closed multiplayer beta of The Witcher Adventure Game (?) & let the GOG.com guys (?) you.
Some of the big takeaways from that message: Combat on horseback, ranged weapons, underwater gameplay, sailing, and horse racing!
Note: The Witcher 3 Pre-Orders are Live on Amazon as well
