You know as the Witcher was leaving slowly on the horse as the woman cries for help I was like: "No... no way you gonna walk away from that..... "

And then he gets off his horse and starts beating up the gang I'm like: "Now that's a good boy."

Heard this is actually a scene from one of the Witcher novels.

P.S.: Who does the Witcher game trailers? These are pretty good.

Well thought out storyline for a cinematic. One of the best I've seen in a while. Far better than those fight ... fight .... fight ... flashy ones.

That gave me chills....."killing.......monsters". The choreographed fight sequence was the best I've seen in a cinematic. I also really like their metallic logo that they seem to use in an even more creative manner on each trailer.

The Witcher series always has the best story line.
I agree MrPositive, chills.

That is what the series are known for. Aside from amazing gameplay they have great stories and characters. Witcher is one of the few games where I do not mind listening to dialogue because it is so good.

If you guys haven't played witcher 2 yet you missed out on one of the best games ever made. It is usually available for really cheap on steam and GoG.

Guess I'm the only one who's disappointed (and slightly worried)... Geralt is decidedly out of character here.

From a purely technical standpoint the trailer is obviously very good.

I can't recall this scene from any of the novels or short stories (read them all several times).

Not really a scene but a quote is used, which might have inspired the scene:

"People," Geralt turned his head, "like to invent monsters and monstrosities. Then they seem less monstrous themselves. When they get blind-drunk, cheat, steal, beat their wives, starve an old woman, when they kill a trapped fox with an axe or riddle the last existing unicorn with arrows, they like to think that the Bane entering cottages at daybreak is more monstrous than they are. They feel better then. They find it easier to live.” - Andrzej Sapkowski, The Last Wish


It was also announced that Charles Dance will be the voice of the Emperor of Nilfgaard, love his acting in Game of Thrones

I've only read The Last Wish, but I can buy it. It seems the events of the last two games have made Geralt progressively less tolerant of human evil over the course of the last two games.

I dunno, fans of the stories tell me that in print, Geralt reads like a true-blue superhero, one of few good men in the world he lives in.

So they told me the trailer was "true to character".

Out of character?
I thought that this echoes perfectly what is his tragedy. He just can`t pass by...
