Yeah I read the details but I still think character swapping sums it up and unfortunately I still don't see the value it adds to the experience.  As I said just seems un-witcher like to me, but 100% agree we won't know till we play it, but like anything great it requires balance you don't make a great game by shoving in every feature under the sun, with these delays im just slightly questioning if they've gone down that route a bit - hopefully not.

That being said, how exactly would swapping be "un-witcher like"? They have already said this will be the last Witcher game centered on Geralt, but not the last Witcher game, Ciri was trained by Geralt and is being hunted by the Wild Hunt, so it will fit into the game very well.

 

It would be unwitcher like in the sense of you are playing geralt why swapping around all of a sudden.  Would be like throwing the signs out and just giving him a wand...unwitcher like.

 

However someone just mentioned the Witcher 2 had instances where you character swapped, I can't for the life of me remember that but I guess I stand corrected in general.

Yeah there were a few brief sections in TW2 where you character swapped, one where you play as king hensalt or or prince demevend for example.

Yup, during the second chapter, but those were like 2-3 subquests only.
