CD Projekt Red has officially confirmed that Ciri, “ashen-haired girl from an ancient prophecy,” will be a playable character in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. A new batch of screenshots for the game have been released to introduce her to Witcher fans, which you can view after the break.

Players will experience parts of the game’s story through the eyes of Ciri, but she will be a much different character to play than Geralt, and the story is still his to experience. More details about Ciri were revealed in the press release:

A descendant in a long-lost Elven-blood lineage, Ciri plays an important role in the Witcher lore — a powerful, living weapon capable of both healing and destroying the world she inhabits. As Ciri is pursued by the Wild Hunt, a cavalcade of ghastly riders capable of unspeakable destruction, as well as the mighty Empire of Nilfgaard, it’s down to Geralt to explore The Witcher 3’s vast, open world to find her before anyone else does.

More details about Ciri and her magical powers will be revealed en route to the game’s official launch, which as of right now is May 19, 2015. Check out the new screens below while you wait.
