The Witcher III: Wild Hunt distills all the best practices of hard-boiled detective novels and translates them brilliantly into a game. To understand how and why this works so well, we have to look at the origins of detective novels, going all the way back to Edward Allen Poe first showing us how feats of logic (as opposed to feats of raw strength) could be engrossing.

This video shows what all the Witcher Armor Sets look like in their different upgrade forms (Mastercrafted, Superior, Enhanced, Normal).
There are 3 sets: Griffin, Feline (Cat), Ursine (Bear). The Serpentine Set consists of only two swords and cannot be upgraded, so there wasn’t anything to show.

Also note that the Superior & Mastercrafted versions of the Griffin Set look the same. They just have different stats. There are also little “Armor Evolution” sequences at the end of every complete set, for a quick overview on how the armor changes with each upgrade.

The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt Official OST

Priscilla Poetic Callonetta’s Song

“The Wolven Storm” from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, as heard during the quest “Broken Flowers”.

This is the cleanest version of the song as anyone is going to get, unless CDPR decides to release a properly mastered version themselves. This audio track was put together from the game’s sound asset files. It’s completely free of in-game noises and has not been processed in any way (except to stitch it together since the game stores it across multiple files).

Feast your eyes on a gripping portrayal what The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is all about and step into the shoes of professional monster hunter Geralt of Rivia in this launch cinematic.
