Many new details about The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt were revealed yesterday at CD Projekt Red’s press conference. In case you missed it, a full break down of what was discussed can be found HERE. During the conference yesterday, a brand new, never before seen gameplay trailer titled “Sword of Destiny” was revealed and was very impressive. Now, after further examination of the trailer, a hidden message has been decoded that was placed within the trailer by CD Projekt Red and reveals even more information about the highly anticipated game. A picture of the message can be found below as it is seen in the actual trailer.
Here is the message transcribed:
“We’ve missed you!
Today you got a look at the third trailer for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. We hope you liked it!
There’s so much more in this game that it’s just impossible to show everything within two and a half minutes. Still, we tried.
More importantly we just showed you some of the main characters…
Geralt’s close friends and some of the last witchers remaining in the world – Vesemir, Eskel and Lambert – will play a big part in the game, as well as their famous fortress Kaer Morhen.
You also got a glimpse of the renowned bard Dandelion and the sorceress Triss Merigold.
Emhyr var Emreis, Emperor of Nilfgaard, the most powerful man in the world of The Witcher also made an appearance. Recognize his voice?
And then there was Ciri!
By the way, if you’re new to the series, don’t worry, the game will introduce you to all you need to know, and you’ll start loving (and hating!) characters in no time!
Also, you’ve been asking us many questions about gameplay features and we’re finally ready to answer some of them – so here it goes:
Yes, you will be able to fight while on horseback
The crossbow. Yup, Geralt can use ranged weapon. Because sometimes monsters fly and you can’t reach them.
Remember swimming and sailing. You’ll be able to dive and search for a lot of hidden stuff too. There’s a whole underwater world to discover.
Horse racing anyone?
You also got to hear more music from the game. This particular track was composed by Marcin Przybyłowicz & Percival. We’d love to hear your feedback. Fire away in the comments or on the game’s Facebook/Twitter/forums. Remember, we’re always listening, even if we’re not getting back to you.

PPPS. We’ve just announced a closed multiplayer beta of The Witcher Adventure Game ——– & let the GOG.com guys —— you.”
Many interesting tidbits of information can be found within this hidden message.
