The Witcher 3 cinematic trailer kills monsters

Cinematic trailers rarely have much to do with the game they advertise because, well, story rarely has much to do with games. A new cinematic trailer for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, however, seems a fair representation of the moral dilemmas and mass murders we expect from CD Projekt RED's RPG, just prettier and slicker than the game will be.

The trailer highlights a question Geralt has faced across the series: what makes a monster? While the Witcher code focuses on monsters with twisted horns and great gnashing teeth and whatnot, stressing political neutrality, Geralt's inevitably ended up struggling with human monsters too.

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