There will be a second playable character in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Ciri is described as a “powerful living weapon,” that plays an important role in the game’s story. Ciri is pursued by many enemies and it is up to Geralt to find her before anyone else. Ciri will only be playable in key spots in the game’s story, but she will play different from Geralt with some mythical powers playing a role in her character.

Some more information on Ciri and her role in the game from the Press Release:

“With such a deep and developed plot, CD Projekt RED decided that introducing another character and telling parts of the story from her perspective would greatly benefit the overall experience. Adding Ciri as a playable character unlocks quite a few narrative possibilities for the team, though while Ciri is a major character, she is not a playable character in the same way as Geralt — the game is still about him, his story and how you, as the player, choose to face the choices and encounters in front of you.

Ciri boasts exceptional swordfighting abilities, as well as several unique skills that will gradually unlock as you play. She’s fast and agile, she can blink (as seen in the Elder Blood trailer), but — most importantly — there’s something dormant in her, a mythical power, but we’ll say more about that in the future.”

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was recently delayed till May 19, 2015. The delay came after the team at CD Projekt Red realized that the game would need extra time to make sure the game would be a better experience at launch.

    I’m incredibly excited to play this game but I’m so glad it’s been delayed. I’m going to need some RPG downtime after putting a ridiculous amount of time into Dragon Age.
