The Witcher 3’s Opening Cinematic Will Blow Your Mind

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt may not be hitting store shelves until early next year, but that hasn't stopped CD Projekt RED from pushing the hype train full steam ahead.

In fact, the studio has just pulled back the curtain on the game's opening cinematic, which has been embedded below for your viewing pleasure. Be warned, however, as it contains a dangerously high dose of epic. Proceed with caution.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is set to release on February 24, 2015 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and, of course, PC. Action role-playing fans who enjoy a deep and engrossing fantasy world just begging to be explored have plenty of reason to be excited.
