From the latest OCC news article :

One screenshot shows Geralt rather close to Yennefer, while the other is with Triss. You may have a hard time deciding which woman you like best, although I'm sure some people are already in either the Yennefer or Triss camp. 




So whose team are you on ? I'm definitely on #TeamYennefer


Mainly because she's going to play a much bigger role in the game than Triss according to all the screenshots and gameplay vids I've seen.

Plus I find dark hair way more attractive than red hair which feels quite fake and unnatural.

We've had Triss for two games basically, while Yennefer is coming in to the picture at long last. She was the love interest for Geralt from before, so it'll be interesting to see how it all plays out. Right now I'm undecided, but I guess that's what multiple playthroughs are for and if we can pursue both.
