Hidden Witcher 3 Message Hints at Crossbows and Horseracing

A post on reddit reveals a text message buried in the just-released E3 trailer for The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt (thanks PC Gamer). Apparently the message was encoded in a single frame of the video. This gives an outline of the game, with this looking like the most interesting bit:

By the way, if you're new to the series, don't worry, the game will introduce you into all you need to know, and you'll start loving (and hating!) characters in no time!

Also, you've been asking us many questions about gameplay features and we're finally ready to answer some of them - so here it goes:

  • Yes, you will be able to fight while on horseback
  • The crossbow. Yup, Geralt can use ranged weapon. Because sometimes monsters fly and you can't reach them.
  • Remember swimming and sailing. You'll be able to dive and search for a lot of hidden stuff too. There's a whole underwater world to discover.
    Horse racing anyone?
