These are some of the novelties that we would love to see in the new Polaris saga of The Witcher.
After the announcement of the next gen version of The Witcher 3: Wild HuntCD Projekt RED has given one of the most important news of the year, as the study plans to bring continue the story of Geralt of Rivia in a new saga. Although not many details about the upcoming game have been revealed, it has already been confirmed that the first Witcher game is going to get a Remake, while is in development of a new trilogy titled with the code name “Polaris”.
After reading the books, watching the Netflix series, and wait more than 7 years for a new delivery, we can’t wait to know what the next Witcher saga will be like. The new titles could take a step into the future because they would be the first CD Projekt RED games created with the Unreal Engine 5 engine, which is the most advanced to date. For this reason, we have compiled some of the things that we would most like to see in the Polaris project and The Witcher Remake.
Improved graphics and larger maps
While The Witcher 3’s graphics can still be impressive, even without the next gen update, the game’s engine Unreal Engine 5 that will be used in the new saga could change things. To be more specific, the new lighting and rendering system could make the settings and characters much more realistic than we expect.
As for the maps, in the third installment of the series they have been more than satisfactory for the players, and that is that they are packed with all sorts of quests and activities. CD Projekt RED has definitely hit the mark by making the world of The Witcher 3 feel alive, but we wouldn’t be surprised if they went a step further with much bigger and more structured maps in the Polaris project or the expected The Witcher Remake.
General character customization in The Witcher
Nowadays, customization in RPGs is one of the most important things and it is something that can be taken advantage of in the next Witcher saga. Although CD Projekt RED has been polishing the customization system in each of the deliveries, it still there are many things that can be improved and addedbecause in the changes of hairstyles and beards of The Witcher 3 there is only a total of X.
Considering that it is going to be a new saga, it is a good opportunity to give the players the freedom of create your characters from scratch. In fact, this would become one of the most interesting novelties of the entire franchise, being able to select a genre, and have more detailed customization options they would make the difference before the past titles.
Freedom to choose a witch school
The freedom to choose a witch school would be an amazing thing for the followers. Obviously, Lobo’s school will always be a favorite of many due to the fact that Geralt studied there. However, there are other headquarters of witches They have different training styles and attitudes, but are rarely talked about during The Witcher 3’s story:
- Bear School: headquarters at Haern Caduch in the Amell Mountains.
- Wolf School: headquarters in Kaer Morhen of the kingdom of Kaedwen.
- Cat School: Headquarters at Caravan Dyn Marv.
- Viper School: headquarters in Gorthur Gvaed of Tir Tochair.
- Griffon School: headquarters in Kovir and Poviss of Kaer Seren.
- Manticore School: headquarters in the far east.
Allow players to explore different paths and make their own decisions from the start of the plot, it would make Polaris and The Witcher Remake very complete RPGs, and could even be the key to distinguishing itself from other current titles, such as Elden Ring.
Changes to powers and combat styles
Geralt already has a large repertoire of powers that They are very good at facing all kinds of enemies. However, seeing some new combat moves, or signal abilities, would be something that would refresh the battle system. In fact, one of the things that fans want to see, is that the protagonist can learn techniques from others Warlocks, just as you do when learning new potions and extracts.
In fact, in the books we see that Geralt has a wide range of powers we haven’t seen in the game yet and that surely they can improve the user experience if they are added in the next saga of The Witcher.
New monsters and smart enemies
The enemies will be more intelligent and challenging in the new saga of The Witcher. This would improve the experience as players will have to think strategically about how to deal with themwhich will increase the difficulty and challenge of the game.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt features fantastic creatures like vampires, demons, ghouls, and beasts, but the new saga should bet on a greater variety when facing monsters. It would be interesting to see how some of the more classic beasts of European folklore, such as the yeti and the like, adapt.
Multiplayer mode in The Witcher
One of the things that we would like to see is a multiplayer modebecause The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has not had this functionality, and being something so requested by fans, it is likely that we will see it in the next saga of The Witcher.
