CD Projekt proclaims its love for Skyrim, though they understand the differences with The Witcher 3 and ultimately hope to replace it as the most famous open world fantasy RPG.
This could be the understatement of the year!
I look forward to it. But no way it replaces skyrim. It is best if they don't make too strong a comparison, as we can see already that Skyrim has stuff like character customization, faction to join and races to chose from. I am sure there will be more differences that E.S fans will miss. Having said that, this may still turn out to be more enjoyable. We just have to wait and see. I know "wait and see" work for most here, even some of the articles submitted can't wait.
They're both great imo, but they handle their style of RPG differently. Witcher is about Geralt, you are Geralt and you're playing his story from his perspective. Whereas skyrim is a more personal experience and it takes exploration to new highs. There's plenty of room for both in my opinion
Yh, hopefully itll replace it as go to open-world game:) as Skyrim does get stale after 3 years.. But both Skyrim (and Fallout for that matter) are a different beast. I see those 2 games as a big blank painting, ready for you to give it any shape or colour. Be it a barbaric nord bandit with a heart for literature and romance novels, or a mushroom eating wood elf hippie with his own alchemy store, its all possible
Not sure why i couldnt edit my prev post, But i can also see The Witcher 3 outshining Skyrim in many ways, as said above, two different approaches to open world RPG
Too limited a choice in how you play to replace TES series. Although I am certainly thinking I will have more fun with W3 than I did Skyrim I just can't see it replacing TES if for no other reason than your limited to one character and set way to play.
I love Skyrim, but I literally know every corner of it, so I will be happy to replace it with something new and equally gorgeous ^^
Me too. And trust me, The Witcher 3 is immensely more gorgeous...(which makes sense, because it's releasing 4 years later, but CD Projekt is generally better than Bethesda with graphics)
If The Witcher 3 is modded to look even better than it does, then i'm at a loss for words. I have no doubt that the correct modders could add to the game, when the tools are released.
I hate Skyrim. But I love The Witcher series and I'm quite sure I will love The Witcher 3.
Aren't you surprised that the very developers of your beloved game claim to love Skyrim?
They need to make a better game, because Skyrim was... "meh". They thought "Nice, very nice, but how many mistakes !!!" and then "Let's make a game that really worth to say BEAUTIFUL". And here comes The Witcher 3 :3
i loved morrowind and oblivion. skyrim was just an OK experience. I did love both witcher games. excited for witcher 3. need new graphics card by then
Played Fallout 3 about twice as much than Skyrim. Skyrim was awesome but I was surprised how an apocalyptic world to me felt more alive than a hugely populated fantasy one.
That sounds like a matter of personal setting preference.
Yeah, it was just something about the Pitboy playing 30's music while wandering through the Wasteland looking for human life was just so immersive.
I believe both have their charms, if you give it the time and are able to absorb the atmosphere, Skyrim can practically feel like a 2nd home, much like F3 did
Replace Skyrim... its going to need a heck of a lot of mod support.
They had a modding kit released for The Witcher 2, though only a lot of time after the game's release. This time it should be available a lot closer to the launch of The Witcher 3.
at least the possibilites are there, when they release the modding tools for Witcher 3. As long as they're doing a better job with it than Bethesda, then it's going to be a big hit. The Creation kit (Skyrim) is not too popular, from what i've seen on Nexus. Sometimes it works, sometimes you wonder how the hell it worked for what you set as a goal.
I thought I saw a picture of fallout 4 somewhere... It looked so real! I was saddened when I realized it was just Detroit (This is a joke)
I don't know what it is about Fallout, but even with mods, it seems to look terrible.
I love The Elder Scrolls and The Witcher, but they feel so different. What draws me into The Elder Scrolls is the atmosphere and combat. What draws me into The Witcher is the story telling. So, I'm hoping I enjoy the combat a bit more with The Witcher 3. It looks phenomenal though.
If the combat draws you in with Elder Scrolls, well, i honestly don't know what to say. Unless it's possible to completely redesign it, then it's definitely a low point for the games.
Skyrim combat is boring as heaven....
Heaven seems pretty awesome to me.
If he had said boring as hell, I'd agree. Skyrim combat is super basic and is like plastic boxing dolls ramming into each other.
I dont like the first two. But I will give a chance to this third adventure. Skyrim can only be replaced by another Elder scrolls.
I love Skyrim for the Archery and the exploration, great to take someone out from a 1000 meters, and finding hidden caves,that alone will top Witcher
Morrowind is the best Elder Scroll.
Go CD Projekt!
I like both cant wait!!;)
skyrim rich of lore but poor of gameplay experience... the world was vast,great world setting and stuff but has awful combat,generice and repetitive quest and easier to the bored (unless modding it)
Skyrim has terrible combat so anything will be an improvement. Not going to praise a game simply because it has a large pretty playground to use a variety of samey character types. Skyrim is heralded for its graphics and mods that make them shinier. That doesn't make a fun or interesting rpg for a lot of gamers.
Skyrim was my first ever open world RPG. I loved that game to death, it was so amazing. And its currently still my favorite game of all time. I'm not expecting Witcher 3 to amaze me like Skyrim did and still does. (This is my opinion before any idiot tries to start an fight with me.)
Mod support Mod support Mod support. Then maybe you can replace skyrim
