I'll be dead honest here, CDPR is unable to really impress me with anything they released so far. Maybe I have very high expectations but of all the devs I would expect CDPR to actually deliver on them. Everything so far proves me wrong.Guys, it's probably just a part of the full intro cinematic ; don't forget games must be designed for newcomers too, and the world and story have to be told to them.
I'm sure CDProjekt didn't show all their cards yet, and we won't be disappointed by the final game
Yeah, the W3 is more personal to Geralt, so the intro is like the W2, a prelude.

^ Very much this.Oh, didn't see the new thread @gregski
Witcher 2, if you recall, didn't have a intro cinematic until EE, and when it got it, what did it reveal to a first time player who didn't play it before EE?
Actually, when we look at it objectively, Witcher 3 has so far been the game in the series for which we have the biggest pre-released info for, story or gameplay-wise, and whatever they would release, it wouldn't be enough (until they release the actual game, let's be honest here ). I'd say you (and the rest of the modern gaming audience that are used to expo's, conventions, betas and early accesses) are kinda spoiled, no hard feelings.
And cinematic was very well produced, for those who are complaining about the intro being too short, ask yourself how long would Letho intro last, if it wasn't for "bullet-time" slow mo sequences in the same cinematic. Guys and girls from CDPR did an awesome job, as far as I'm concerned.
Unknown reasons? She got caught in the middle of a battle, one fighter tried to kill her, and then got in the way of a cavalry charge. It was all self defense in order not to get killed.Powerful sorceress casually strolls into a skirmish, kills some people, for unknown reason. Then runs off. Two Witchers are after her.
