The Witcher: Rise of the White Wolf footage surfaces

Some footage from the canceled console version of The Witcher has surfaced over on YouTube, and it really makes you ache for what could have been.

The story is too old to be commented.

It'll run pretty well on most modern PCs and it's prett cheap now so it's worth picking up.

I see a lot of 3rd person view footage for these games. Am I the only one who played it using the top down view?

Darkfocus3081d ago

wait there was a top down view for the witcher? 8/ I played through the whole game without realizing that.

It isn't top down unless someone added a mod. You can change views on the fly with Over the Shoulder, Low Isometric, and High Isometric.

Raf1k13080d ago

Well, it's as mroganfell says.
What I meant was high isometric but I said top down since it's basically more of a birds eye view since isometric kind of implies it's a fixed isometric view when in fact you could rotate the camera angle. Sorry for the confusion.

This is not footage from the original Witcher.

I loved the first Witcher, but I doubt my 256mb video card will be able to handle The Witcher 2. Time to upgrade...

Raf1k13080d ago

Yeah I know but all the footage of Witcher games I've seen (this one, the actual Witcher game that was released and the sequal that's in the works) have been shown using this view.

the videos taken off....cant see it....

loved the first witcher btw...


i don't know if my pc will run it ..but im definitely interested in this game. The PC footage i've seen blows this away.

That's because the pc footage you've seen that "blows this away" is from the Witcher 2. This is not the Witcher 2, just a port of the original that never happened.

Video no longer available :(

Anyone knows where can i find the vid? i really wish to see it :)

So I never knew it was cancelled :/ At least I'll be getting a moderately good gaming PC in a few weeks so I'll probably pick it up for that.

How do you think a 2.6gHz AMD Athlon II X4, 4GB RAM and a ATI Radeon 5750 will do on this?

TheIneffableBob3080d ago

I ran the game maxed out on a 7900 GT, so I think you'll be fine.

As fun as it would have been to play the Witcher with a better, more action-oriented combat system, I'm much happier that we're getting a whole new game (Witcher II) instead.

White Wolf wasn't even being made by CD Proket. We're not getting Witcher 2 INSTEAD, that was coming anyway. This was cancelled, along with other Widesceen Games projects, because apparently they can't manage to actually produce anything, so CDP pulled the plug.
