CD Projekt Red has confirmed that Ciri, the series' other witcher, will be a playable character in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

Ciri will be playable during some parts of The Witcher 3, but not as an alternate character, CD Projekt Red confirmed. The developer did not reveal exactly how Ciri will play, but did tease that she'll have a mythical power.

"Ciri is playable only during certain moments in the game – we introduce her to give gamers another perspective in the story to make it even more engaging," CD Projekt Red's Robert Malinowski said. "You won’t play as her for long periods of time, but since she’s crucial to the plot, we thought that additional insight will allow gamers to better bond with this cool character.

"We introduce Ciri as supportive narrative tool and not because of gameplay mechanics. The Witcher was always about Geralt and that has not changed, but that handful of moments when you play as Ciri provide us with glimpses of how the story feels from the other side.

"She’s a living weapon… and everyone wants to control her. This, plus she also has her own will and agenda, so it’s not just finding her that counts. I think that is the most important aspect of this character. Geralt knows Ciri since she was a child. She’s Geralt’s apprentice and they have a close emotional bond – he trained her so she could become a witcheress."

So there you have it, you can now lay those Triss and Yennefer fantasies to rest.

Thanks, IGN.
