OnlySP: During the intermission period of the livestream for The Witcher 3 that occurred today, some new music was played for the game and by golly is it good. There's a total of four songs to listen to.
Awesome soundtrack. I loved the ambience and music in Witcher 2. It adds massively to the sense of immersion.
I am waiting to play that game. Building a gaming PC and it's first on my list of things to play. Got it on a Steam sale for $4.99 I can't wait! Love everything I've seen and heard in The Witcher 3 so far.
We are on the same boat, Can't wait!
You are in for a treat my friend! Have you played the first Witcher game at all? I highly recommend it! It is a little quirky and rough around the edges but certainly worth every minute of it. Some fans even enjoy it more than the second game. (A vocal minority say otherwise)I love both games. Witcher 2 improves A LOT but it also takes a step back in a few areas unfortunately (Witcher 3 is looking to fix that thankfully). Regardless,you cannot go wrong with either game.One of my favorite series of games and Universes without a doubt. I waited a long time to play Witcher 2 until I built my gaming rig as well. I wanted to play the game as it was original meant to be played and do it justice! No offense xbox 360 owners,As great as the Witcher 2 port was,it still just isn't the same compared to on PC :) Enjoy your new PC and playing Witcher 2 my friend! What did you end up building if you don't mind me asking?
I am getting a i7 4770k, EVGA GTX 770 4gig and 8gigs RAM. I have not played the first one, buyt my current comp might run it. Gonna look into it!
Yeah the soundtrack to The Witcher 2 was beautiful and haunting. It really did add a lot to the game. Music and sound design in general is a highly underrated aspect of games. Many people don't seem to realize just what a big impact music and sound design have on our enjoyment of games.
Agreed. I still enjoy and think the first witcher games soundtrack was better.Third game seems like a combination of 1 & 2 with it's own unique identity.Good so far. Music in games is overlooked and under appreciated at times.It's just as important as gameplay and graphics when you get right down to it. ETA: @starchild - Didn't read your comment until after I posted. Looks like great minds think alike :) haha. I agree with what you wrote. Music and sound design is crucial. Some of the best and most iconic games of all-time had amazing soundtracks and sound design.
Wow really good soundtrack.
My Pc is not ready😜
Make it ready, man. Make it ready.
In the new trailer what is the song that's playing in the big part of the first half?
Wow!!! Is like first Witcher, thats good!!;)
The trailer was majestic. The standard edition of the game is offering a lot of cool content,some found usually in exclusive collectors editions. On to the Collectors edition - I thought overall it was quite nice. Going from what the presenter Marcin Iwinski said after the revealing,there could be even more added to the physical/GOG CE. The GOG digital CE is offering an extended OST(Soundtrack to the game) Music - I was worried after hearing that neither composer from the first two Witcher games was going to be involved in composing the third Witcher.So far, from everything I've heard,my initial worries are gone.I am enjoying the music for W3. I'd Still like to hear more uninterrupted tracks but overall I gotta admit,I'm really digging the 'melancholic Slavic undertones meets Epic' the Witcher 3 OST is going for. It has some similarities to the first two witcher games yet also unique.Resembles more of the first game,if we are to compare between the two and what little of witcher 3's music we've heard. This for me is a really good impression because personally,I enjoyed the first Witcher's music/soundtrack more than I did second games music. For anyone who has played the first witcher,you know exactly what I'm talking about.It sweeps me away to Geralt's world,I can imagine this fantasy setting existing,yearning to be apart of it :) It has for lack of a better description to do it justice - Magic. Witcher 1 has a magical soundtrack. Sincerely one of the best OST ever to be created. If Witcher 3 can achieve anything close to that,then we are in for a treat. So far they are on the right track. The hauntingly beautiful female vocals have been great,there are some examples in witcher 2 but not exactly as they are presented here in Witcher 3. I cannot wait to hear more. All in all, I am extremely excited and now even more impatient after seeing and hearing everything in that new trailer! Yeah,I think i'm slowly approaching cd projekt red /Witcher fanboy-dom...The darkside is beckoning my name! Will you join me? :) Hope some of you enjoyed the music and the trailer as much as I did.
need this, well need the game more, but also need this.
