Polish developer CD Projekt explains exactly why The Witcher III looked worse in the VGA trailer than in the first one.
Well it's true but only to an extent. I hope that the PC Ultra setting will be really close to what I saw in Swords of Destiny trailer...
I agree. I want that quality (in Ultra Setting).
Are you ready to go NVIDIA? Because you'll need it for HairWorks. That fur looks so great!
Is that the same Hairworks in Far Cry 4?
Apparently hairworks isn't tied to cudacores(physx) and is instead tied to the DirectX11 API, so should be possible to play on AMD cards lest NVidia actually prevent it from happening.
I don't know, the recent gameplay footage looked just as good to me as any of the previous trailers. It looks incredible and has a scale and density that most games don't even approach.
Surely with the settings to the maximum will be better.
I can't believe people are going to nitpick something like this especially considering the scope and scale of the game as well as that the new footage looks basically almost as detailed as the last. The Witcher 3 is going to be freakin' amazing to say the least. Kind of sickens me that "gamers" are getting like this these days. I personally can't wait to experience the amazing visuals, deep story and epic endless gameplay.
I do agree that the whole downgrade debate is a bit exaggerated, though it would be very simple for developers to avoid it. Just write "development in progress, elements may change" at the end of each trailer.
That too. I also think devs should just be quiet about the final resolution and framerate of their games before they release. Let the games speak for themselves and let Digital Foundry just expose that side of it.
That's the problem with dynamic lighting. GTAV did it right by controlling the lighting for the story whilst keeping it dynamic at the same time.
I sunk hundreds and hundreds of hours into Skyrim. At the time it was the most beautiful game I'd ever played. Playing Skyrim now though and I'm like... the characters all looks so wooden... point is this.. graphical fideltiy is a fleeting miwtress!
Well, there are graphic mods which enhance it greatly. But I understand what you mean, ultimately it's all about gameplay.
Madness, I thought SKyrim looked below average at the time. It was okay because it was open world and all that, the graphics were never good though...imo, nice art style though
May can't come soon enough!
That seems like a fine enough explanation for me. The xbone has a slight disadvantage in visual acuity but the difference is not enough to write home about. This is going to be the game of the year on any system; I'm stoked to spend my time with it.
It's certainly one of the candidates. Besides, if they can deliver an improved modding kit this time we may get Skyrim-like addons and mods in the future.
I bought this game for the PS4 console. I'm not expecting perfection. Heck, I still play Skyrim from time to time & it's definitely nowhere near perfect on PS3 but all of those quests & stories I can lose myself in. It feels like a living world. What Skyrim does right is so awesome. If the Witcher 3 ends up doing just a few things right that keep me playing then it's gonna be a win for me. If the frame rate drops occasionally it's not the end of the world. The graphics look great to me for a open world game on console. As long as there's screen tear :)
I cant wait ! Played the first 2 and this one looks even better. I loved the comedy of the first one, you walk into a tavern and the comments were hilarious. "Your mother sucks dwarf [email protected]
Sometimes, the ugliest games are also the most fun, but The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt isn't by any standard ugly. I have great respect for CD Project for being so straightforward, which is a rarity in the industry now.
Xbox and ps4 will look great. PC will go one step further... well, maybe not one step... but who cares? All formats will deliver the narrative, beauty and epic world of the witcher. If you fail to see beyond visuals then that sucks for you massively lol!
I see the difference. Don't really care. I just want the game.
