E255: Giant killer – we hunt down CD Projekt Red’s next gen action-RPG, The Witcher 3

witcher

Bigger that Skyrim: The Witcher 3 sets the bar for next-generation action-RPGs, and it’s the cover star of our latest issue, on sale now.

Alongside our exclusive look at developer CD Projekt Red’s hugely ambitious next release, we meet Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma and go behind the scenes at notoriously secretive Call Of Duty studio Infinity Ward.

In our Hype section, we have an early look at games including Plants Vs Zombies 2, Tearaway, The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, Runescape 3, Project Cars and, of course, Infinity Ward’s Call Of Duty: Ghosts.

Elsewhere, we investigate the new world of 24/7 on-demand videogame TV, profile Angry Birds studio Rovio and consider the role of randomness in game design. There’s also our verdict on Xbox One, and an interview with Microsoft Studios boss Phil Spencer.
