It's no secret that we're incredibly excited for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's arrival on the PlayStation 4. And while the title ended up making an appearance at Microsoft's E3 presser as many predicted it would, this rather comprehensive look at the upcoming RPG's combat and open world is utterly glorious nonetheless.

As hinted, the live demo focuses on fighting, with protagonist Geralt cleaving human enemies in two before tracking down a menacing griffin, all while navigating his way through a lush natural environment. It all looks unsurprisingly beautiful, and it's great to see that developer CD Projekt Red seems to have delivered on its promise to vastly improve the series' swordplay.
