Step aside, CG trailers - The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt knows the score. Our latest look at the upcoming PlayStation 4 role-playing game comes courtesy of a new nine minute gameplay video, as we're walked through one of the prologue area's quests.
Obviously, there are some minor spoilers here, so if you want to jump into the title completely blind, we'd advise against watching it. For those of you who stick around, though, you won't be disappointed. It's our most uncut look at the release yet, and to be perfectly honest, it's just made us that much more desperate to get our hands on Geralt's adventure.
Take a seat, grab a drink, and tell us how you think it looks in the comments section below.
Nothing but awesome, almost an entire month away! Was thinking of trying to play-through the first and second games again....doubt I'll have time to even finish one.
Please HD remaster 1 and 2 on PS4
I thought my sword and sorcery days were behind me, but the more I see of this the more impressed I am.
Haven't watched the vid yet...is it ps4 gameplay?.. All videos so far seem to pc played with an xbox pad(or possibly xbone footage)
No need to watch. I'm already convinced.
@teknium_ Most videos have actually been Xbox One footage as its the lead console (like CoD is and Destiny is on PS4). Its not native 1080p but 900p upscaled in these too. The Witcher 2 looked and played great on last gen so I wouldn't worry about how this is going to look.
Plough yourself mutant!
@BAMozzy yea..i played witcher 2 on 360 and it was very good so I know 3 is a must buy for me...its not how the game looks that really bothers me but like I said elsewhere I've just got a little nagging feeling saying to me "performance issuses"... I dunno lol...
Looks like a gorgeous game, but the witcher has the wrong voice for him...sounds like a drunk thug.
Nothing I have seen yet strikes me as something to be worried about. The game has been delayed several times - it was originally due in October then February and I heard that the game was basically finished in time but spent the last 6-7+ months polishing and making sure story arcs etc follow properly and the decisions have the right impact i.e. they don't suddenly forget you bought drinks for everyone or threatened someone for example.
If you played 2, then you must know how much attention to detail, etc CD Projekt put into their games. Its certainly larger and more ambitious - can't wait!
@BAMozzy @teknium_ What's quite funny about this one is that it's PC footage (played with an Xbox controller), and it's from the official Xbox channel, on which it was advertised as Xbox One gameplay. People found out as soon as they tried playing the video at 60FPS, and it worked.
@AFCC I know...really! They started on a console remaster (well, a last-gen remaster) of the Witcher 1 back in 2010 or something, so...yeah! I've played both on PC and I love them, especially the first one.
Well, to make up for that...I wonder if they will have something like Bioware has in their recent games where you can review the story and make decisions from the past games without playing them.
It's easy to tell that this game was made out of passion and pride, instead of a bottom line profit. I've deliberately not watched a single trailer for this game until recently because, as expected, now I'm going to throw up I'm so excited for this. JUST LOOK AT IT.
I can't get over how good the animations are during EVERY conversation, and not just "major cutscenes." The facial expressions may not be as good as L.A. Noire...but the added body language makes everything look natural and just takes it to whole new level.
It looks awesome, but I'm not sure It's for me.
I tried the first game a couple of years ago and I didn't enjoy it. Should I avoid this?
I hope that 3 will not have that stupid GTA style character movement like W2 had. My god was I annoyed with it. I mean I want to take a step back during fighting and what my character is doing is take a step forward then turn around and then finally move in the direction I wanted. And all the time being hit by enemies.
I truly hated W2 combat. It was meant to be fast paced and with a lot of movement/dodging/rolling - suitable for wide open areas while at the same time most of the combat in W2 happened in cramped situations.
The story was excellent though.
