Now that the dust has settled from E3, we’re starting to dig our way out of the overstuffed inbox. One such nugget, we were unable to unearth was the E3 trailer for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and the details about the game’s pre-order incentives.

The Witcher 3 has to be one of the most anticipated games for 2015. However, some of you may have been living under a rock or two, so just to cover all our bases, let’s give you a quick overview of the game.

Wild Hunt is an open world RPG set in a next-gen quality fantasy universe. Like any good RPG, the story drives the game and so with The Witcher 3, players will be forced to make choices, which will have an impact on the story line. Playing as Geralt of Rivia, a monster hunter, you’ll find yourself heading off into a world which has been decimated by years of fighting. At the end of your journey, you’ll encounter an enemy who far surpasses what mankind has fought before.

CD Projekt RED has put together two different collections available for pre-order. These premium items have been selected by the developers with the serious gamer in mind.

The Wild Hunt Collector’s Edition is the premium edition of the two. CD PROJEKT RED feels they are bringing the “most artistically complete game figure ever made for a collector’s edition of a game.” The figure is said to be made of the highest quality materials. In fact, the figure is made from Polystone, which usually has a hefty weigh to it, a porcelain like feel, and it gives artists the freedom to include even the most minute details. From what we could gather in our research, Polystones are the most desirable manufacturing materials when it comes to collectible pieces.

“Behold, the Collector’s Edition of The Witcher–over two kilograms of the most badass monster slayer, ready to bring your desktop figure collection to a whole new level,” said Adam Badowski, Head of Studio, CD PROJEKT RED.
