Hunting Griffins is a casual pastime for Witchers. In The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, that’s exactly an activity you can do after being hours into the game. It’s hard to tell which is more beautiful, the graphics or the gameplay. Optional missions will unlock bonuses for later times. In the gameplay footage, Geralt kills some bandits and unlocks an herbalist shop for later uses.
The Griffin fight looked amazing. By the head hanging from the side of Geralt’s horse, I’d say he took it out. Watch the trailer, watch the beauty, just watch! Enjoy.
