CD Projekt Red has dubbed the trailer "The Trail" and according to the developer this is the opening cinematic of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. For running just under three minutes this trailer showcases quite a few prominent figures that will play important roles in the upcoming sequel.


According to the released details the dark-haired sorceress seen running about is Yennefer, a former lover of Geralt that was often mentioned in the second title of the franchise. The older witcher that was accompanying Geralt is his mentor, Vesemir. For those of you familiar with the franchise you should already be aware that finding Yennefer and dredging up old feelings might not sit well with Triss. Perhaps Geralt of Rivia should stick to hunting the monsters that we have seen in previous trailers. If you would like to more about Yennefer check out her character profile here on The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt official website.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt releases on February 24th of 2015 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
