During a panel at PAX East, CD Projekt RED released a brand new gameplay video of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
The game looks very beautiful.
I'm so much more freaking excited now I can't contain it. :) Every new bit of footage released just gets me all the more excited. Come on!!! I've booked and rebooked holidays from work for this game, let's hope they don't delay it again...
that wywern fight was so f****** amazing.the wind was even better was too busy enjoying the video to notice alleged downgrades god damn. this year is gonna be so awesome
Bloodborne MGSV Battlefront 3 Just Cause 3 Mad Max The Witcher 3 Arkham Knight Persona V The Tomorrow Children Soma Uncharted 4 No Man's Sky Life Is Strange full season Until Dawn Every Gone to the Rapture Too many amazing games will be released this year.
@vishmarx That's because there hasn't been any downgrade. It looks better and more polished than any gameplay we've ever seen from the game. There isn't a single other open world game that looks this good. The amount of detail in the environments and the quality of the lighting is simply stunning. Not only that, but it has amazing dynamic foliage--and not just a few trees, but all the grass and shrubs as well--which we've never seen before on this scale. The game also uses a physically based rendering system that results in outstanding looking materials and light interaction. The dynamic hair and cloth is also impressive.
pc virgins are dying for this one to come out so that they can say 4x more expensive pc finely has a better looking game than ps4 exclusives
I'm not liking the hud though, think Witcher 2 had a better hud. This one looks just low quality, hope it improves.
I'm 90% sure they said it would be customizable.
HUD is completely customizably. Confirmed.
i take it thats pc? although thats xbox buttons
Xbox Controller i think.
I've heard from multiple people saying that its actually the xbox one version. Not because the buttons but the developer stated it on its youtube page, if this is true it looks quite good and i can only imagine what the pc looks like. Can anyone confirm this
I knew the game was doing to look good, so that is not a big deal for me. I am more interested in what kind of random encounters I will have and can they be difficult enough to stop my progress and make me scared enough to not want to venture that path again. The wilderness should not be a place where you just walk around and enjoy the view. You needed to be prepare and be skilled to survive, or you will perish. I hope the challenge is there but doesn't feel artificial. you should be able to succeed if you manage your equipment and development properly.
Well, the enemies don't scale to your level, which means at any time you could venture too far into the woods and meet monsters that will hand your ass to you. :)
My most hyped game of 2015. This will hopefully be the best thing since Skyrim.
Skyrim wasn't THAT good
Shh, don't mention that too loudly, otherwise people will notice how each Elder Scrolls game has been downgraded over the years.
Except skyrim only has visuals going for it. GAMEPLAY was/is terrible for all the elder scrolls games. Looks like witcher3 is showing plenty of the other devs how to do a game right with both great graphics AND great gameplay without all the excuses.
"GAMEPLAY was/is terrible for all the elder scrolls games." That's taking it a bit far imo. It is the buggiest successful series for sure and combat feels outdated to say the least, but there are still some very cool things about those games.
"This will hopefully be the best thing since Skyrim." Dark Souls owned Skyrim imo.
Wither 3 graphics are breathtaking.
now this is a game that worth the hype
Wasn't we promised CGI graphics??(or aiming for?) Far from it , but I suppose it's about size and content than anything else , still,it looks nice(just not CGI).
No, when did they say that? First of all, CGI simply stands for "computer generated imagery". All videogame graphics are technically CGI. If you are referring to film-like, then that is a different concept. Not everyone prefers the soft, somewhat blurry-look of film. There are lots of different ways for games to look good, they don't all have to mimic the look of film.
CGI in an open-world game with a world larger than Skyrims? Yeah, no.
NPC:s look terrible
Thats a design choice to reflect the diffrent classes of people and kingdoms. I take it you haven't played The WItcher 2? The peasants will look and sound like peasants, while the sorceresses and nobles will be much better looking and be better dressed. They'll have upper class accents too. It's just one of the few things that makes The Witcher games brilliant.
why what other game has peasants looking and sounding like kings and vice versa
@bubblebobble Lets take Skyrim for example, there really isn't any significant distinction in the voices or accents between the races. Even in their dress and presentation, there's no real distiction.
I have played witcher 2 and it was great! But must every npc look polish? I get that its a polish studio making the game but come on! And what I really meant was the animations and detail of the npc:s that was bad but the design isnt good either
@LogicalReason My bad, the wither 3 does run on a newer game engine. Anyways, the game looks really good. it doesn't matter what game engine its ruining on. The engine was updated from 32bit to 64bit. I was somewhat right. A ground up game engine still would've made a difference.
Even if the textures and such has been downgraded in the game, modders on PC will take the time to add high resolution textures (which should've been there in the first place) on PC. Other than that, this is pretty much my most anticipated game.
Seriously, day freaking 1.
Looks and moves stunning. To bad that wont be happening on the PS4 and XBO. As it will be locked to 30fps for that "cinematic" look and feel some people brags so much about...
Wow, so disappointing. I mean who cares about gaming if you own a console. Just no fun in 30 FPS at all... /s
"To bad that wont be happening on the PS4 and XBO. As it will be locked to 30fps for that "cinematic" look" Dat 30 fps doe... "Here is the snippets from the interview (translated): Q: PC recommended specs will be able to run the game on 30 or 60 frames per second? Adam: I think, we'll stick with 30 FPS. We're not going to stop working on performance until the very end, it's crucial matter to us, there are different PCs with different specs. Programmers insisted on avoiding tricking the players by lowering predicted specs. As I mentioned before, It can only get better." http://www.gamepur.com/news...
Plus free DLC. Awesome on so many damn levels.
I hope the final build looks a lot better than this as this latest video doesn't jump out of the screen and grab me, looks very bland
Haha sure it does. It looks amazing and you know it. Its unbelievable how hard some of you Sony fanboys are trying to downplay this. Comments coming from people like you, vishmarx and ps4fanboy are so transparently biased.
Dude , I have only PC cuz I put all money reserved for gaming in it , and as a PC gamer , not a sony fanboy I can tell you that I too beleve this is mutch behind what we were first shown , go ahead go to Neogaf witch is full of PC elitism and look at coments . Just like Uncharted 4 gameplay doesnt match teaser , or Watchdogs and all other downgraded games , Witcher doesnt too and it pisses me off cuz everyone will love it for the gameplay but they are still making big deal out of graphics telling us they wont show ultra settings and mark my words it wont look like first trailer .. why dont they just come out and say yes its downgraded , theyre not Ubisoft to deny what everyone sees , ye it looks good for open world game but thats it , and thats not what we were shown in the begining , kudos to them for free DLC but one good thing doesnt make one bad thing go away , and we should all stop pretending it does ...
You do realize that's the pc version right?
@SoCalledMe NeoGaf is a joke of a site, please don't refer to it as some authority on anything game related. Anybody that isn't a Sony fanboy eventually gets banned. I still have an account there but the only reason I haven't been banned is because I don't post much there. I've seen a lot of intelligent, fair-minded posters get banned there and it's a travesty. The other thing about Neogaf, besides it's pro-Sony slant, is that they tend to be overly negative about almost everything. Sony exclusives don't get as much hate, but even they get overly nitpicked. I was there when the Uncharted 4 gameplay hit and people were being overly critical. And frankly a lot of their analysis was just completely bogus. Same goes for The Witcher 3. The Witcher 3 looks BETTER now than the first gameplay footage. At least to anybody with working eyes and/or a decent knowledge of graphics tech. It's a clear upgrade, not a downgrade. https://www.youtube.com/wat... Look at the actual gameplay segments in this gameplay trailer. You can easily see that the game has seen upgrades in certain areas. It definitely doesn't look any worse. And trailers aren't really good for comparisons anyway because trailers are carefully edited to present the game in its very best light. Most trailers also contain cutscenes, which we all know look better than gameplay segments (if only because the animations, camera movements and lighting can be tweaked to maximum effect). These two factors inevitably lead to a better impression with trailers than raw moment to moment gameplay. I'm analyzing the actual graphical composition, not going off some vague impression. When you compare the two recent gameplay demos to actual gameplay demos from early showings it's clear to see that the game is now more polished and looks better overall than it did in its early showings. https://www.youtube.com/wat... Furthermore, I am willing to bet that the cutscene elements from those early trailers that seem to have impressed people so much are still in the game. @tinezedw Yes, this is the PC version and it looks incredible.
WHo cares if they have downgrade the graphics a little,have you just seen that wonderfull AI of the Wywern...it suits me better that developers employ more computing power on the game enemies AI paterns than on flashy graphics,especialy when the game already looks this good and runs smoother!
U srsly think AI for one NPC at the time is take more than like 0,1 % of power of todays CPUs .. we arent talking about crowded city here were everyone needs to react inteligently sheesh
The music during the wyvern fight is terrific.
This is a great game franchise and may 19 i will be on the hunt.
And it's still a DX11+ build. Still not using DX12 and it looks this good!
This honestly looks like it was built with last gen in mind. The graphics aren't anything special. They're not even using physical based lighting and the animations look rather stiff and lifeless. It doesn't matter though. It's not the type of game I'd buy.
I'm so excited for this game.
Finishing up part two right now and I loving it so far. Huge world, great characters and loving the combat. Part 3 is definitely a day one buy for me.
I won't get day one which makes me cry. WWhy release in the exam months Dx
This game keeps on looking better and better! damn!
I have mixed emotions about this game, I was extremely hyped when I found out its coming to consoles but... I dunno, don't get me wrong, it looks like epic fun, just not sure if I'm up for a massive fantasy type of game, I never played the first 2 but everyone seems to love them, anyone else feeling burnt out with the whole fantasy style games?
i didn't play the first witcher, but i did get tw2 on 360. try that one out first. it's not really that long of a game.
Poland know how to make good games
Hmmmm.....let us see ps4/xb1 gameplay. pc is gorgeus
It doesn't look any better than Witcher 2...
This will be the lead contender for game of the year. Finally a witcher game built with consoles in mind, the gameplay looks way more polished than the witcher 2. i had this game pre-ordered since it was announced and I can't wait to see how the great story ends. (i didn't read the books)
