The Witcher 3 Has A New Trailer, And A Surprise: Two Playable Characters

Who saw this coming? CD Projekt RED have announced that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will have two playable characters. That’s fantastic news.

The developers didn’t reveal who the second playable character is, but they did say that they’re featured in the new trailer, above. The second playable character will be a woman, I’m sure, so that means it’s either Ciri, Yennefer, or Triss. Speculate below, if you will.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on February 24th, 2015. I wasn’t paying much attention until now, but as the release date nears and we find out more concrete information, I’m becoming more and more confident that this is going to be a milestone in CD Projekt RED’s history.

(As an aside, that’s a great new logo they have for the company. They probably spent a lot of money on it, and that was money very well spent.)
