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.

    "this game has a lot of sex and swearing" "all the things I enjoy " lol only a minute into your gameplay and I love it

  • Sasha Millar

    Rewatching your gameplay again because it's so good!

  • 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.

  • MistahBroccoli

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

  • Endles Sword

    from all the games i have played this one is the best. by the way cool video

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • mruknown66

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

  • 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.

  • TravisVerseYou

    I'll have to watch this series after I beat the game. I want no spoilers :)

  • marijn

    YESYESYESYESYESYES, i was hoping you would play this cowboy, you're the absolute king of the long story based walkthroughs :D awesome!

  • DutchG66

    Your let's play is definitely a lot better than a lot of other youtubers

  • João Freitas

    Omg. your voice is so sexy

  • 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.

  • Brian Phillips

    Thanks man, great videos. Best game i've ever played!

  • 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?

  • Clorox Bleach

    10:05 Swiggity swooty I'm coming for that booty.

  • polyspastos

    Geralt, stop fingering my toiletries! :DDD

  • Sean Field

    also i'm loving this game, only grabbed it 3 days ago. enjoying it more than fallout 4 which is strange.

  • 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.

  • Jake Clemons

    What game is better, {Gta 5} {Fallout 4} {Or this}Please respond soon

  • 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.

  • LordDoom1985

    Don't forget to use witcher vision at starting camp to find and get Yennefer's raven crystal skull.

  • Balthazar2234

    did you ever get bored with this game cowboy? i heard that i os tremendously long

  • The Angry Cup

    Hey CowBoy, have you ever heard of the original ps1 game final fantasy tactics? Final Fantasy games aren't always peoples kind of games but Tactics is amazing and brings so much depth and fun into the game, you should check it out.

  • William Chandler

    You are the definition of Man-Mode, sir, I like your style and delivery.  If you do like open-world RPGs, I would suggest you look at the progress of "Shroud of the Avatar" -- the game is a continuation (unofficially) of a game franchise that began in 1980 known as 'Ultima'.  The series is still available at

  • Tyler Jones

    Dude your channel is awesome. Followed you though Bloodborne and Dark Souls 2.  You are super thorough at explaining what your doing and how to do it. Especially on Dark Souls 2 because you had played it on xbox 360. Cant wait to see your videos on Witcher. Just wanted to tell you great job!


    I just got back into gaming and I am so glad that I came across this game to begin. It's completely amazing. Your videos are the best. I've gone thru the original Witcher 3 to level 24 but now I'm starting over when the complete edition disc arrives for my PS4. I'm re-watching your videos while I await the new game disc. This game is the closest thing to Everquest that their is. I was an original "Evercrack" player but stopped gaming many years ago. Thanks for the tips.

  • Vlad Meglei

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

  • 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! :)

  • Chuck Norris

    Just bought the game on sale. Jumped on YouTube praying FightinCowboy did a drunk through. WooohooooGot my whisky ready. Let's do this.

  • MrMighty

    I never really got into the hype of the Witcher, but if your gameplay convinces me, as it has for previous games, well then I shall be spending more money :D (Commenting before I watch)

  • SDG

    Apparently I missed some stuff along the way. Followed the main story until I got to Family Matters. Now I need to go back to White Orchard and hit up some side quests. So hopefully watching will help me figure out what I missed.

  • Yash Parihar

    Have mercy on that merchant... Don't ask for crowns😅

  • Grady Coker

    Never played The Witcher, but definitely want this one...only watching this first video to get hyped...looks like a beautiful game.

  • Alexis Turner

    Just finished the newest DLC and decided to go back through and play it on new game plus. Just a random question. Do you go through and get rid of old content, or do you keep it all?

  • EvilKingPhill

  • Haley Harrison

    How did I just now discover this series and this dude. FiGhTiNCoWBoY you are awesome and have a good radio voice believe it or not.

  • Rafał Sobczyk

    It's so stupid that they show off Signs in front of Ciri, when she was unable to do them and very insecure about it.

  • Laika Sir

    Soo,(if you can), will you choose Yennefer or Triss?
