We’ve seen enough of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt to call it a beautiful game, and we’ve heard its world is huge. While we got to see a new trailer just before E3, Wild Hunt was also featured at Microsoft’s E3 press conference with a new gameplay video.

The same demo shown here was played through differently in a later Twitch stream, as well, so you may have seen a different version. Regardless of which version you watch, you might be wondering how long you’ll get to immerse yourself in the Witcher’s world. Well, according to CD Projekt RED, you’ll have 100 hours worth of gameplay…if you play really fast.

Senior Level Designer Peter Gelencser described 100 hours as a “speedrun.” We aren’t sure if he means that in the traditional sense of a speedrun, where you complete only the required tasks and attempt to get through the game as fast as possible, or if he’s imagining someone completing all the side content and just doing it very quickly. Either way, The Witcher 3 will have a lot of content.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt looks like it will be a stand-out RPG. Are you satisfied with what you’ve seen? What questions and concerns do you still have?
