The Witcher 3 : Wild Hunt
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt[a] is an open world action role-playing video game developed and published by CD Projekt RED. Announced in February 2013, it was released worldwide for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in 2015. The game is the third in the series, preceded by The Witcher and The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, which are based on the series of fantasy novels by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski.
Played in a third-person perspective, players control protagonist Geralt of Rivia, a monster hunter known as a witcher, who seeks his missing lover and adopted daughter, who are on the run from a group known as the “Wild Hunt”. In the game, players battle against the world’s many dangers using weapons and magic, while interacting with non-player characters and completing side quests and main missions to progress through the story.
The game was met with critical acclaim, with critics praising its narrative, world design, combat and visuals, and was a financial success, selling over six million copies in six weeks. The game won multiple Game of the Year awards from various gaming publications, critics, and award events. Two critically successful expansion packs were also released for the game, titled Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine.
Cirilla Fiona Elen Riannon (known as Ciri or the Lion Cub of Cintra), was born in 1253 or 1252, and most likely during the Belleteyn holiday. She is a Princess of Cintra, and the daughter of Pavetta and Duny. She is the granddaughter of Queen Calanthe.
After Geralt of Rivia lifted a curse from Duny, the Urcheon of Erlenwald, he demanded from Duny his wife Pavetta’s firstborn child, a child he had but didn’t know he had, due to the Law of Surprise. Six years to the day after the child’s birth, Geralt went back to Cintra for her, but did not take her with him to Kaer Morhen at that time. In fact, he didn’t even lay eyes on her and only spoke with Calanthe. The Queen divulged no information to him, not even the child’s gender. This child was named Cirilla.
While she was still an infant, Ciri’s parents were both lost in a storm at sea. They were presumed dead. She spent her youth in Cintra and the Skellige Islands in the care of her grandmother and her uncle.
