CD Projekt RED has announced that Ciri will be a playable character in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. According to the company, players won’t play as her for long periods of time. Still, Ciri will be crucial character to the plot of the game, which is precisely why CD Projekt RED will be giving players the chance to play as her.
In short, Ciri will be playable only during certain moments in the game, and this decision was made in order to give gamers another perspective in the story to make it even more engaging.
As CD Projekt RED stated:
“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.”
In addition, CD Projekt RED has released a new set of screenshots that can be viewed below.
