CDProjekt seems keen on expanding The Witcher series protagonist Geralt's abilities in combat in the upcoming game. The game's producer, Marek Ziemak, revealed some of the abilities that Geralt now has in an interview with OnlySP. According to Ziemak, Geralt will have new offensive and defensive abilities, as well as items and potions.

"You have new ways to dodge enemies and parry their blows," he said. "But also, for each magical sign, you can use two versions of it. One is extended. For example, the Igni sign has a constant flamethrower thing whereas there's also single, more destructive blow of fire. This is one of the new elements. We're also introducing new alchemical potions, and other minor elements that will change the experience."

Geralt will be even more badass in the third game

 

Other new features of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt include the lack of load times. The game will also have a save-anywhere-you-want mechanic. It will also have a fast travel system in place for areas that Geralt has already visited. Considering the fact that this will be the studio's last Witcher game, it will have 36 different endings that will finish off the story of Geralt.

Some other features were earlier revealed back in April. These include the addition of complete day and night cycles along with dynamic weather patterns, the inclusion of ten signs, instead of the previous games' five signs, the addition of combat "skills" and the change to alchemy to make it more supportive.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is set to hit PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
