The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt website offers mysterious countdown

Tuesday, 13th August 2013 02:19 GMT By Brenna Hillier

CD Projekt RED is teasing something related to the The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, with a reveal expected later this week.

The RPG’s website has been updated with the subtitle and subdowmian “Killing Monsters” and now hosts a countdown timer.

The timer ends at 11:00AM PST on August 14, which at time of writing is a little over one and a half days away.

We have no clues as to what the countdown pertains to, but as CD Projekt has such a strong European presence it’s possible the developer a major reveal lined up for gamescom, which kicks off on August 21; for example, if a new mode were to be on show during the event, it might detail it in the lead up.

The website offers a packet of wallpapers and music, too. VG247 staff are said to be “pretty pleased” by the opportunity to make some new header images at long bloody last.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is coming to PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2014.

Thanks, GameInformer.

    Well, they teased the entire subdomain “killingmonsters” as “leading to something big”. They may as well release the CGI trailer, but I would be dissapointed if those weeks of teasing led to something we already knew about, since some journalists have seen it at E3 and they told us about it. At least I wouldn’t classify it as SOMETHING BIG if that would be the case, though I definitely wouldn’t mind actually seeing that clip. Maybe what they saw at E3 was just a part of something bigger, like a TV/Internet series? We’ll see.

    As recently as June they had plans to release some uninterupted gameplay footage at Gamescom (according to what they told angry joe at E3). So let’s all hope E3 was just a prelude to bigger reveals.
