Everybody must take a break every now and then—even the world’s foremost monster hunter. Toussaint is a land of unique marvel and there isn’t any finish of sights and sounds within the free metropolis of Novigrad, however typically the trail to tranquility is simplicity: Blue skies, clear water, and the distant, mild rush of wind taking part in via close by bushes. And because of a brand new video shared by CD Projekt forward of the discharge of the massive Witcher 3 next-gen patch, we are able to all take a second to seek out that peace on the Path.

The complete video runs 1:36:46, and thru all of it there’s nothing to do however benefit from the surroundings and hearken to the mild music and ambient audio. Regardless of the placid surroundings, issues do occur, however they’re calm, innocent: The solar units and rises, birds flap via the sky, a toddler rushes out to play within the water, every now and then a fisherman rows by—and thru all of it, Geralt stands stoically on the shore, gazing throughout the water and into the gap, little doubt pondering the life that introduced him so far, and where it would take him subsequent.

There are glitches to be seen, too. Nothing fairly as overt as Roach standing on the roofs of homes, however little issues right here and there, like a person rowing a ship with no oar, or a rider on a horse abruptly disappearing into nothingness. It would not take away from the general soothing impact, however it’s a enjoyable little reminder—virtually like an Easter egg—that regardless of its well-deserved acclaim, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt shouldn’t be with out its personal share of oddities.

If you would like to see this spot for your self, head for the Higher Mill, discovered throughout the lake from the village of Brunwich, which lies properly east of the town of Novigrad. If it is your first time there, be sure you method from the south—the chapel throughout the bridge to the north is cursed.
