YouTube’s “ImAnderZEL” has shared ten minutes of gameplay footage from the PC version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, running at Ultra settings.
23 days to go! Looks stunning!
Yeah, the game is gorgeous. And I'm happy that I should be able to run it well on my gtx 970. Which is really great because it looks better than AC Unity but also seems to run better.
I've got the same card too, really excited to see what mods come out of this as well.
@starchild Agreed. Unity was an amazing looking game, this will just be another treat for PC gamers, specially for those that can run it maxed out. Of course PC gamers not having the hardware to run max settings can still play it maxed out anytime in the future when they do decide to upgrade, So free HD remake to them.
Yeah I got the gtx 970 too just last week and it came with gta 5 and Witcher 3. Can't wait to run it on ultra.
The 970 is the most popular GPU today, it better run this game ultra at 60 fps
I got a code for this game free with my 970. Win.
i like the Witcher series but i hope they fix geralt movement and run because he walk and run like a robot not like human . i think the character movement and run in assassin creed is alot better . the second thing i don't like is the way how geralt opening houses doors and chests . he must use his hand when he want to open the doors of houses and chests to look like more reality . the last thing i notes is the fight with sword , its too fast and barely see his sword movement to enjoy with it . what i want to say they must benefit from the good things in assassin creed specially the movements and use things or walk over things or through people ... etc .
Ok, your animation complaints are valid. Some could definitely be improved, but keep in mind the SIZE of this game...it's estimated to be as much as 3.5 times LARGER than Skyrim. Second, Geralt is a mutated human with inhuman speed and abilities..he's going to swing faster than a normal human. Lastly, This game isn't assassin's creed...
i got Disagree ? oh may this is why we will never get good games in this generation . children
I agree with you,no doubt it's going to be a great game but the animations could be better. But the combat from witcher two was fun I hope people don't get turned off by it's difficulty.
Meanwhile, at kcuthbertson's restaurant: Customer: "This steak sort of smells like feces." Waiter: "ah yes, but look how its 3 times bigger than the macaroni salad!"
@reallyNow LOL the best way to call someone out on a logical fallacy. I would personally like to see more games follow naughty dog's footsteps with animations. AC has decent looking ones, but when you get gameplay involved it's terrible. ND games just look and feel that much better. I don't understand why poor animations tend to affect PC-oriented developers more. It's just a trend I've noticed over the years. Hopefully fallout 4's animations are leaps and bounds over Fallout 3's. Those were hilariously bad.
Looks great. I hope it's also good on consoles because that's what I'll be getting. :)
i wonder how long we have to wait to see some proper console footage... this behaviour is unacceptable
I'm sure it will man, CDPR are one of the few good devs still out there. I'm sure they've tried to tap the potential of each system as best they could. Hopefully we can see some updated PS4/XB1 footage for the people on the fence about that. @Thefreeman012 dude most PC gamers don't give a crap if you want to play on consoles. The more likely scenario is people on this site who don't like MasterCornholio are just disagreeing with him to be jerks.
"who don't like MasterCornholio are just disagreeing with him to be jerks." Yep if you look at my public profile I'm ignored by many people. So I always expect a ton of disagrees whenever I comment. But that doesn't really both to be honest. Anyways I'm sure the developers will do their best with the console versions of the game. All I want is the game to run good on those systems. That's a pretty normal thing to ask developers in my opinion.
I Have not been this excited since Skyrim
With any luck it will be skyrim but with better combat, story, characters, and side quests.
My gtx970 is waiting to be melt;) can't wait
Cool. Just drop shadow resolution/quality and AA down a notch and I guess I could get similar performance from a 970. Edit: Although, wow, holy-pop-in Batman. Actually, it's not that bad. In line with what I've seen in other games. But it sticks out here because I'm looking for immaculate presentation. Hopefully they'll be a patch to address that.
Actually, the pop-in seems way better to me than most open world games I've played, which is especially impressive considering how dense it is with detail. If this was AC Unity, for example, things would be popping up left and right just feet in front of you. Sadly, pop-in just goes with the territory with open world games. Maybe installing it to my SSD will improve it somewhat.
True, when you consider it's open world it is impressive. But keep in mind that the areas we are seeing here aren't truly open either. Good point on the SSD though.
Well I have dragon age inquisition on an ssd and I still get pop in so I'm not sure it will make a big difference. Then again maybe it's different with different devs we will see.
if you aren't playing at ultra then why play it on PC at all?
Still running a 780, i'll upgrade in a few years but for now she should handle it fine.
True but it's going to be PS4 or Xbone graphics lol, why bother with pc then, go hard or go home bruh.
Are you joking?
A 780 is far from the PS4 and XB1. Hell. a 780Ti is slightly faster than a 970 in most games (helluva close though). A 780 will run this game a fair bit better than the consoles. Im sure all versions will turn out great though :-)
His 780 will spank your childs toy console
Game looks awesome on the 980. 2nd 970 should be here this week so hopefully I'll get even better out of it! :D I'm looking forward to this. The depth of the game seems to be amazing!
Interesting that review builds require you to use a controller and disable K&M (or prevent it for use in review videos). Makes me question every video I've seen of the game so far. Otherwise, this looks pretty much like what we've seen in most videos in the last month and plays exactly like The Witcher I know.
That's a pretty questionable practice in my opinion.
All of this PC gameplay. where is the Xb1 or PS4 gameplay?????
Going to have to wait until it's released. Looks like MS has an embargo on footage not showing XBO controls and most people are playing on PC for reviews (with controller).
That is kind of weird. If people want to play the game with PC controls or any other controller they should be able to. Very strange that they can only use the XB1 controller to play the game. Some people might mistake the PC footage for XB1 footage because of that.
Considering The Witcher is a PC series, damn straight it should be reviewed on PCs. Consoles have ruined enough already.
@Dynasty2021 i AGREE 100% the witcher was ment for pc and should be STILL main PC! screw the console trying to take all of our games but its ok for them to have exclusives...
When you are advertising a product you show case the best version...
They are still trying to get a filmic 24fps from it perhaps.
Holy mother of Youtube-compression. the game looks good even with compression.
can anybody give me an idea of what settings i might be able to achieve with fx 8350 and gtx 970? the gpu is fine but..that cpu shames me. i should have saved up some more money and went with intel. anyway...any ideas?
looking at this your cpu is matching intel in some games https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Yea i know how you feel 100% i just switch to Intel and Nvidia.. i am sick of AMD getting screwed on ALOT of the newer games. but once DX12 comes out the 8 core amd cpus should be better. But my guess it should run fine.
Assassins creed unity still looks better imo
All you need is a GTX 960 and you are good for years.
Luckily I just got the new MSI GE72 Apache boasting GTX 965m brand new GPU. Cant wait to finally test it out on this game.
2GB VRAM? Does not sound very future proof to me.
nice but i thought the graphics were alot better when they first announced this... gonna need some sweetfx indeed
Pretty game, shame about the pop-in.
Shame both my GPU and CPU are below the minimum specs. Oh well: by the time I upgrade I'll probably be able to get TW3 and all its DLC for $5.
Don't worry.. The consoles are also below the minimum spec.. Fingers crossed
Don't I know it. Feels weird that my PC, which has better specs than a PS4, can't play a game that's being ported to the PS4. But I guess it's to be expected... CDPR has never really been great at optimization. I hope they at least bothered to make some new low-res textures for the PS4 version instead of just downscaling everything.
Wow – just, wow. That's amazing! CD Projekt Red, I could kiss you! *smooch*
Can't wait for this game! My little after college treat.
Sweet! Looks like my 970 is gonna handle this thing like a champ.
I hate this guys accent so much it ruins the video.
Does anyone know if, and when the Witcher 3 will be available for preload on steam ?
OMG i cant wait anymore! this game is looking to SOOOO good! i just got a GTX 980 so im happy. I played both witchers so this should be amazing!
@[email protected] Looks so nice hope my PC will do fine at high-medium i5 2400 3.4Ghz R9 280x 8GB RAM
I'm wanting to see if a 980 ti is released, if so I'm buying. I also got my game from gog.com for 45 bucks! yay
Man this game is going to be nice. But I dont know if I should get it right away. I still have Dying Light, AC Unity and Borderlands all in their wrappers (got them all cheap or I wouldnt have bought them all at the same time) and I havent played anything else except Bloodborne since it came out, which I still havent finished approaching 100 hours and dont know when I will. I think I'll pass for now as I want to get into Dying Light and clear some backlog but I'll pick this up later, maybe even saving a little money in the process. I will be jealous of everyone playing this Day One though.
Does witcher 2 pick up later on? I remember buying it and finding The MC boring. How was the combat The story and characters? When does it pick up? I really want to give 2 a shot and than 3. 3 Looks game of the year worthy. Wow 2015 is shaping up great! witcher, bloodbourne, batman, final fantasy type 0 persona V, monster hunter 4, Majoras mask etc..
Did I miss anything XD disagea V looks neat. Is hellblade coming?
