Silver and steel
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is an epic quest that sees players take up the dual swords of Geralt of Rivia, The White Wolf. Kill monsters for coin and find a Child of Prophecy before the world is destroyed.
Slightly disappointed, but not surprised. It's actually nice to have confirmation on a specific window (so thanks Windows Central!) It had seemed like they were leaning in this direction. In spite of its issues, at the current patched state, even before the next gen edition, Cyberpunk 2077 is my favorite game and the best looking 4k HDR game on my Series X. I'm really curious to see how much better it can look with the next gen release.
