The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt gets a new logo
CD Projekt Red has unveiled a new logo for its upcoming game: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The big change? The new logo puts the titular "Wild Hunt" in its center, effectively casting a spotlight on the mask of one of its ominous leaders, general Eredin.
"The Wild Hunt has always been thought to presage war, great plagues and death. Their origin unknown, these ghastly riders instilled fear in the hearts of men and are believed to be able to steal people’s spirits that would later join the cavalcade. They come at night, in the winter and their appearance is always preceded by the aurora borealis," CD Projekt Red explained.
"In The Witcher 3, the Wild Hunt are not mere bosses at the end of a corridor. They’re part of the lore, part of the system of folk beliefs, they’re both something that children say stories about to scare each other and an entity that can wipe out entire villages in one night. The Wild Hunt is essential to the whole Witcher universe and in The Witcher 3 it will finally take center stage.
"The ones who command the Hunt remain a mystery even bigger than the Hunt itself. Their number and purpose are shrouded with mystery, their cold steel however is not—many have witnessed the Hunt’s atrocities, almost none survived to tell the tale," the developer concluded.
Following a delay, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is now expected to release in February 2015 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
