Controls for PC, PS4 & Xbox One

In an interactive medium such as video games, being in complete control of whatever is happening on the screen is of vital importance. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is no exception; the myriad enemies in the game will not forgive you if you press the wrong button and cast a spell instead of blocking. It is advisable that you get to know the game’s controls before venturing further into the Northern Realms.

Trying to memorize all the keys and their functions is a difficult endeavor when starting out in a brand new game, so we have prepared a list of all the key bindings for the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One versions of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
