Some new Witcher 3 screens showing combat, card games and enemies have been released today by Namco Bandai
Those are some awesome screenshots. The first one looks almost otherworldly. Only 24 more days to go.
Here the two of us are again in a Witcher article. After saying yesterday that I was going dark, I think I need help. I can't stop clicking on them.
You and me both.
I'm with you too, I just can't!
Holy shizzzz. This is new! They even got a "desert" themed region wow never saw that before, so far i saw -snow area -dense forests -old battlefields -deep sea/open sea -islands -and now desert area ! :)
Yeah that desert looks epic! Also for some reason that screenshot made me think of Halo.
Maybe it was the Halo 5 reveal trailer set in the desert, and that alien looking moon.
For those familiar with the Witcher books , I think it just might be Korath desert a.k.a. the frying pan.It is where Ciri was dumped mid-air. Here is a link for more info, be careful of book spoilers. Here is a really badass video someone made in UE4 of what Korath might look like. If you ask me, not too far off from what that image with those creatures and Geralt looks like. https://www.youtube.com/wat... http://witcher.gamepedia.co... Looking at that image, if they were to add a bit more red to the rocks & environment I would be just about 100% positive that this was a confirmation of Korath. Which to be perfectly honest, I would of thought that area would make an appearance in-game. It might not be Korath but some other barren area we don't know enough about.
* I meant to say in my last comment that I did not expect this area making it into the game. We will just have to wait and see on May 19th. We do know there are supposedly 5-6 separate locations from the main 3 core regions - Novigrad, NML and the Skellige Islands. We are aware of 2 of these, 1.) Kaer Morhen, the WItcher fortress, training grounds and Winter home and 2.)The Vizima Royal Palace. If we aren't counting White Orchard, the prologue area, then this still leaves 3-4 locations we have no idea about.Maybe this is one of those separate smaller areas of the game?* Here is an excerpt from the Witcher saga book 'The Time of Contempt' describing a bit of Korath: “She was completely surrounded by a greyish-red, stony plain, scored by ravines and faults, with mounds of stones and huge, strangely shaped rocks. High above the plain hung an enormous, golden burning sun, turning the entire sky yellow, distorting visibility with its blinding glare and making the air shimmer.” — pg(s). 255, Time of Contempt (UK edition) Info. on Zerrikania http://witcher.gamepedia.co... If it truly is the Korath desert then this opens a few opportunities to finally show more of the Witcher world and some of it's monsters that up until now have only been referenced and talked about in the novels and games.
First game i ever preordered in my whole life
how can anyone disagree to that? .. Funny :)
This game gets more stunning as we go. Can't wit to play the actual game and see how beautiful it is! :)
Imagine if games one day look like that tv spot clip!....i'll be too old and arthritic to hold a controller let alone comprehend what im seeing, lol.
Haha nah I think we'll get pretty close to that level next generation, and definitely by the next one after that.
Does anyone know when (if) the witcher 3 will be up for preload in steam?
For those familiar with the Witcher books, I think this image http://i.imgur.com/bqq5vie.... Might be Korath desert a.k.a. the frying pan. It is where Ciri was teleported and dumped mid-air during the events of the novels. Here is a link for more info, However be careful of book spoilers. http://witcher.gamepedia.co... Here is a description from the books - "She was completely surrounded by a greyish-red, stony plain, scored by ravines and faults, with mounds of stones and huge, strangely shaped rocks.

The monsters in that image remind me of a Koshchey. More so a hybrid between a Koshchey and an Arachas. Here is an image of what a koshchey look like in TW1 - http://witcher.gamepedia.co... It might not be Korath but some other barren area we don't know enough about. I'll stick with my first guess and impression for now and say it's actually Korath.[until we have confirmation.] If it's really Korath? Consider myself even more hyped than before! (if possible.) There are a handful of creatures/monsters that are from this area of the Witcher world that up until now have only been talked about and referred to in the books and 2 previous Witcher games. So you can see how this could be a really big deal for longtime fans who have read the books and played the first 2 games and new comers tot the series alike. Here are some links talking about the types of beasts who inhabit this desert region and further,another sorely underutilized and known about region of the Witcher world, Zerrakania. http://witcher.gamepedia.co...
