The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Gameplay Walkthrough Part 1: The Dream


The Witcher: Wild Hunt is a story-driven, next-generation open world role-playing game set in a visually stunning fantasy universe full of meaningful choices and impactful consequences. In The Witcher you play as the professional monster hunter, Geralt of Rivia, tasked with finding a child of prophecy in a vast open world rich with merchant cities, viking pirate islands, dangerous mountain passes, and forgotten caverns to explore.

Trained from early childhood and mutated to gain superhuman skills, strength and reflexes, witchers are a distrusted counterbalance to the monster-infested world in which they live. Gruesomely destroy foes as a professional monster hunter armed with a range of upgradeable weapons, mutating potions and combat magic. Hunt down a wide range of exotic monsters from savage beasts prowling the mountain passes to cunning supernatural predators lurking in the shadows of densely populated towns. Invest your rewards to upgrade your weaponry and buy custom armour, or spend them away in horse races, card games, fist fighting, and other pleasures the night brings.

Built for endless adventure, the massive open world of The Witcher sets new standards in terms of size, depth and complexity. Traverse a fantastical open world: explore forgotten ruins, caves and shipwrecks, trade with merchants and dwarven smiths in cities, and hunt across the open plains, mountains and seas. Deal with treasonous generals, devious witches and corrupt royalty to provide dark and dangerous services. Make choices that go beyond good & evil, and face their far-reaching consequences.

Take on the most important contract to track down the child of prophecy, a key to save or destroy this world. In times of war, chase down the child of prophecy, a living weapon of power, foretold by ancient elven legends. Struggle against ferocious rulers, spirits of the wilds and even a threat from beyond the veil – all hell-bent on controlling this world. Define your destiny in a world that may not be worth saving.

Built exclusively for next generation hardware, the REDengine 3 renders the world of The Witcher visually nuanced and organic, a real true to life fantasy. Dynamic weather systems and day/night cycles affect how the citizens of the towns and the monsters of the wilds behave. Rich with storyline choices in both main and subplots, this grand open world is influenced by the player unlike ever before.

All console recordings are on Elgato HD60 or using Xsplit on PC.

  • MistahBroccoli

    clicked to give a like but cant watch, dont wana ruin anything

  • SaltyAsian

    Omg thank you for doing this series!! Tried other channels, but non beats you at it. They dont do research before hand, and just talk about how much likes to upload 2nd part, and never upload fast. I feel like they do it only for money now, and not for their own enjoyment like they used to. I donno why you dont get more sub/views? You really deserve more.

  • polyspastos

    Geralt, stop fingering my toiletries! :DDD

  • Elvy Foster

    Glad I was able to find your channel. I previously tried two other channels to watch this series a few weeks back but they bailed and went on to other less interesting titles.And your commentary is cool so I subscribed. THANKS.

  • Leviator Delaney

    Is there a way you can fix the weird audio drops? It's like when sometimes you're talking, the audio will just fade off then come back.

  • Sasha

    Rewatching your gameplay again because it's so good!

  • Iceflower

    I am actually quite annoyed that Witcher 2 never got the attention it deserved, just because it was only for PC first. Hell, even witcher 1 was a unique title for the time. Not that it's gameplay was so fabulous, but it's storytelling, progression, influential choices, atmosphere and such were allready damn original.

  • Yameng Cao

    224 episodes of Witcher, time to binge it again for me

  • marijn

  • mruknown66

    The difference between a block and a parry is that a block stops the attack a parry lets the attack slide off.

  • Vlad Meglei

    Oh man just finished your Dark Souls 3 Walkthrough and wandered if by luck you have Witcher 3 also ... just perfect.

  • GamerHats

    FINALLY! Do you guys have ANY idea how hard it was to keep hard for months?! Now that this game is finally out, I can finally enjoy the game-(see's a scene with a nude woman with an alluring voice and scenes with amazing lighting)GOD DAMMIT!

  • leehant

    Thank you very much for posting the complete game!!!

  • dmgbringer

    A good tip to navigate the world a bit easier is to go into the settings and lock the map so it dosent rotate as the caracter turns. The map will then be locked using North, West, South, East. It helps alot with navigation as u always know in what direction u are moving and dont constantly need to open the map to set waypoints or se if u moving in the right direction.

  • Calypso Gamin

    How do you guys get the games early

  • Captain Twerkmotor

    Parry is essentially blocking with your weapon, riposte is when you near your sword's guard to the opponent's and gaining space by pushing him/her away. Much like what they do in boxing with grapples.

  • Chris Fisher

    Finally starting with this game... a little late to the party :P I've been a fan of your vids, having played Bloodborne and Dark Souls 2, alongside your walkthroughs. Always delightful and enjoyable to watch! Can't wait to catch up on this series. Thanks for taking the time making these! :)

  • cowartd

    Re watching this series, and I realized that you said it bothered you "that they call it a Parry even though it's a block". The definition of parry is: "to ward of an incoming attack, sometimes with a countermove. He parried the attack by holding his sword vertically." In real life, the correct usage of block is what you do with a shield, you do not block with a sword, that is a Parry, and a Riposte is a quick thrust after throwing someone off balance from a Parry. Now in games like Dark Souls, a Block is the same wether it's a sword or shield, an a Parry is them being stunned. I'm guessing this is why you are associating parry and block as the same is bc you are thinking in terms of games like dark souls, where as Witcher 3 uses the same as real life sword play terminology and definitions.

  • Del Boyo

    The intro to this game is the best intro that I have ever watched, the voice actor nailed it.

  • Travis J

    I still cant believe how many videos you toss out at once. Its very different from other you tubers and I have to say, I love it lol.

  • Olivia Lambert

    I've never tried extorting the pleb. I usually find cash rewards to be poor compared to the money selling bandit weapons. But wow, for 50 coins he becomes so much less helpful. I know early game Geralt is poor, but that can't be worth it right?

  • Balthazar2234
