A new video for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt surfaced today, featuring a quest from the prologue, where Geralt helps a merchant retrieve a mysterious box from the swamps.
How about we get some Xbox one or Playstation footage for a change? I don't understand why they would upload a nigh 10 minute video of the PC version on the official Xbox channel.
because they paid money to market the game? ms needs witcher associated to xbox and not necessarily pc since that where their profits lie @genuine V as would everyone else. but unlike gamers, ms would like to avoid all comparisons like the plague. do you think people are okay not being shown this game running on ps4 ever? for what its worth though gamespots-1st video of their current witcher series shows a brief few seconds of each console version side by side
I would be most content with some ACTUAL Xbox One footage. I hope that video is somewhat indicative of how it will look on current-gen. And I agree, I have know of their partnership since E3 last year.
I agree. The brief few seconds of current-gen of-screen footage looked good.
Microsoft can try to associate The Witcher series with Xbox all they want. Everyone knows it's a PC series with PC developers creating the game. I hate it when MS tries to butt into a game series that they never supported until now. They can fk off back to Halo or Forza or better yet create their own damn games for once instead of trying to buy influence from 3rd party developers and platforms. And before anyone says it the PC platform is not Microsofts they haven't supported it since the first Xbox was launched.
It is on xbox one.and it looks very good!!! Very good Look when he open up the inventory!!!
It's not on xbox one. It's on the PC with an xbox controller.
Lol kinda jumped the gun there.
My PC must be an Xbox One then because I get Xbox button commands on all my games.
my bad guys! my bad
Its PC probably on running on settings equivalent to the XBO, although is playing at 60 FPS, Consoles will play at 30. They haven't shown any footage on high or ultra settings I think.
http://n4g.com/news/1713698... How do you feel now?
this is xb1 as far as i know
This is a 60fps video. The X1 is at 30fps that should be indication enough
U right, every time we only see PC footage, this make me worried as ps4 owner, anyway i'll get pc and ps4 version to see by myself. insha allah.
Bit disingenuous to advertise a 60fps video on the Xbox channel since this is PC footage. Having said that, kind of disappointed with the PC graphics. Wondering fi this is low/med settings and not ultra?
Uncompressed video looks much, much better. Witcher 3 and the colors it uses has a problem with youtube's color compression,probably because of the palette used and subtle differences that youtube just ignore and make them into one color.
@Genuine-User Agree with u 100% lmao at the dissagrees! We all know pc gameplay will be great as long as said pc is good enogh, but what console gamers donk know is how good the game will look and perform on consoles. Iam so tired of publishers/developers using souped up pc game play and cgi to show off and advertise their games! Its cheating, and everyone is at it. Seriously the game is near launch and still no proper console footage? WTF? It makes me nervous! Footage we have seen so far was stuttering allot and on digital foundry was shown to dip fps down to 19fps! yikes, i just want to see game play more akin to what i will see when i boot the game up. What makes it worse is when they intentionally put pc game play on console channels/websites using the xbox controller to fool naive gamers into thinking its xbox footage. At the very least developers should put up a disclaimer clearly stating the footage is pc. Just whats the secret? Less then a month from release why are they not confident enough to show the potential millions of console gamers what the game looks and runs like? I have a gut feeling it will require lots of patches to run smooth, day 1 patch an all. Sadly todays sheeple gamers love these shoddy practices and instead of speaking up against it they choose to vote down vocal gamers for speaking up.
Woah! How many years have elapsed since Witcher 2? Geralt sure looks a lot older!
15 i belive,but i can be wrong...
Where did you hear that? It's 6 months after The Witcher 2. Just the beard makes him look older, plus devs wanted him to look older for story purposes.
Dreamoner# that´s why i stated that i might i´ve be wrong,i have i certain memory of an interview in where they stated the time lapse from the previous title and 15 came into my head but not for certain,ok then six months it is...
Which is wierd since witchers live for centuries.
that is correct in the books Geralt is 108 i belive.
Speaking of Geralt specifically, there seems to be conflicting information about his age. Some says he's over and some says he's under 100.
Vesimir is in this game, pretty sure he is at least 300.
it is on xbox one!
No it is not.
@Genuine-User I believe it is X1 footage. Unless this is pc with xbox controller support? The beginning of the video shows the controller button prompts on the lower right. I was under the impression this game went 'gold'. Meaning no additional dev changes on what will ship in the box. Of course perhaps a few optimizations are still in the queue which will be delivered as a day 1 patch? But since I am playing this on pc I am glad to see the pc footage as well.
Wow... just wooooow. I'm actually baffled that some people can't tell it's 60 fps.
They can upscale the FPS of a video i think.
its only 60fps if u watch in chrome isnt it?
I played the Witcher 2 with Xbox controller on PC. So yes this will have Xbox controller support like most PC games. Like others have said only the PC version will have 60fps the consoles are locked to 30fps. It's the PC version from PC developers. Who would have thought? :P
Pretty misleading for MS to post PC footage on their XBox channel. Glad they will have native controller support for pc. That must be why I saw the button prompts early in the video.
Can't wait to get this game. Thanks for the share.
Looks amazing! I love it when simple side quests like these go deeper than just "go and fetch this" etc
That horrible video bit-rate though.. Still nice new gameplay footage.
That's false advertising. The game will not run at 1080p or even close to 60 fps on the Xbox One. If the visuals will be the same is also up to debate...
"In game footage provided by CD Projekt Red, captured on a PC." That's in the description of the video. So how is this false advertisement?
MS updated the description after complaints. http://www.gamespot.com/art...
I gotta build myself a pc as soon and monetary possible,that looks amazing,and the 60 frm do make a diference.great job CDPR
IMHO it's kinda deceiving to publish the video like this (with the xboxone logo plastered on the lowerleft corner), when its not footage from the console. Hopefully, at least the assets are close to the console reality.
Good thing I just bought an R9 270X 4GB 60FPS 1080p here it comes!
I have the same card, but I don't think we will be targeting 60 fps for this game. Judging by what they said about reccomended specs we may be looking at 30 fps on high or medium/high.
Well i am hoping to hit the 60 fps with my MSI gtx 980 gaming 4g in ultra and 1080p, but to be honest, if they have ubersampling Again, i dont expect it. You might be abel to hit the 60 fps at lower settings but not in ultra.
@roadrun I was able to play TW2 on max settings and hit 60 fps most of the time as long as ubersampling was off. When it was on it would drop below 30, I'll just assume that ubersampling won't even be an option for me in TW3 lol.
Well TW 2 without ubersampling wasnt that hard to get 60 fps from. http://www.dualshockers.com... according to this the Ubersampling will make a comeback in TW3. But less than a month, gonna be nice if they still punish todays rigs :)
Ok i see what they did using a pc with an xbox 1 controller you can tell because its the only version that truly runs at 1080p 60fps the xbox version runs at 900p 30fps which you can tell with out putting them side by side
I always thought some* of the still shots of this game were "meh" at best, but seeing it in motion is really impressive. The trees and foliage are incredible, and the lighting affects are cool as well.
Considering its scope its anything but meh
Right, and that was my point - some of the prior still shots allow you to nitpick little details, but seeing the full picture (in motion) really shows how impressive the graphics are for how big the game is
My god people, the description says: "In game footage provided by CD Projekt Red, captured on a PC." It isn't stated anywhere that that's X1 footage, so it's not false advertisement. There, are we done now? Can we actually talk about the game itself. How cool that this side mission wasn't a simple fetch quest. How good it looks and plays at a constant 60. Can't we talk about the game. I can't believe this is what gamers have come to. Rather than talk about the game and ideas, it's only about platform now. smh
I know, man. It's pretty awful. The game does look amazing, though.
