Witcher 3 ditching DRM, quick-time-events and multiplayer

[Header 1]

In March we reported that The Witcher 3 might include a multiplayer of some sort. Well CD Projekt Red has decided it’s not what The Witcher 3 needs and so will not include multiplayer. The Witcher 3 is focusing on its single player experience and on this we agree, so go on CD Projekt Red, make Witcher 3 as good as you can.

And to that point, as more good news of sorts, Quick-time-events (QTEs), which can feel cheap and cause frustration with players, will not make the cut either.

There is a small number of games where it is fun, like, for example, in the Uncharted series, where you don’t even realize that you’ve just finished a QTE sequence. And I think that only this way of using QTE has any kind of future in games.”

Best of all, Konrad Tomaszkiewicz of CD Projekt Red called DRM “the worst thing in the gaming industry,” and so The Witcher 3 will have no truck with DRM. This is great news, though comes as no surprise as that was the way with The Witcher 2. This of course only applies to the retail as well as versions while distribution channels such as Steam still will have their DRM applied.

    I’m glad someone is willing to exclude multiplayer when it’s not needed *cough* tombraider *cough*

    I can’t remember if this game will be on consoles. Stupid question probably. I can’t wait for Skyrim’s Legendary Edition though.
