Geralt of Rivia is, let’s face it, a monster detective. I’m not knocking the concept, I love it; but, I chuckle every time I mentally break the idea of The Witcher down into the very silly Geralt: Monster Detective name that I have for the series internally.

This new video from the folks at CD Projekt RED explores the design and variety of monsters that Geralt will track down and vanquish in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

When it comes time to deal with the beasts in the game, you’ll want to consult your in-game glossaries for tips and tricks. You’ll learn, as the video indicates, that the Drowners in the swamps absolutely hate fire. This is where your Igni sign comes in handy.

If CD Projekt RED delivers on all promises, we’ll have a game that boasts a diverse ecology of monsters to work with, solve or slay. They all look terrifying, too.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will sell for the PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 platforms starting on May 19, 2015.
