E3: New screens of The Witcher 3

E3: New screens of The Witcher 3

Monster Leshen hidden in the murky woods, sirens turned into flying creatures and the city of Novigrad, that's what is depicted among other things in the new gallery of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. CD Projekt Red's title will release in 2014 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

To be honest, I don't like the graphics in W3. Everything is somehow "grainy" and lightning seems very "flat" compared to real next-gen games like MGS V etc. Also the faces and skin don'y look very good...

Looks great, can't wait to play this. I really hope the open world approach pays off, because the limited exploration in Witcher 2 was, along with teh crap combat balance, my main gripe about the game.

MGS5, a game that's coming out for current gen platforms is a "real next-gen game", but Witcher 3 isn't? I don't follow.

You can't be serious... This is one of the best looking games out there...

What a fantastic series. Every sequel seems to dwarf the predecessor

That's still 2 excellent games in the bag. Perfect track record so far in other words.

Wait, I thought this was Xbonx One and PC only? Has it been confirmed for PS4 as well??

Maybe you got me wrong ;) What I mean is when you look at the scope of the games it is amazing how they evolved. From isometric top down, to a mass effect like third person game to now apparently completely open world game similar to Red Dead Redemption.

Since when was The Witcher an isometric top-down game? The first one was also third person (over the shoulder type camera)...Also if it's anything like Red Dead Redemption i'll kill myself with the bust of Geralt from my CE edition of Witcher 2 :P

It's a scope kinda game. When you look at the vistas in the game, it looks spectacular. Also keep in mind these games take FOREVER to take, similar to the Bethesda RPGs. So this has been kicking around for a while, and it shouldn't be surprising that it doesn't quite have all of the fancy stuff of the linear small scale next gen games. Comparing this to something like the Remedy game is sort of like comparing Crysis 3 to Fallout 3.
The only thing I don't like about the engine is that fucking sharpen filter. Sharpen filters should be destroyed, they aren't any good and it's not even the proper way to sharpen an image. I think this looks pretty sharp, especially given the size and seamlessness of the world.

I think it looks awesome, but I agree that it is kinda over-sharpened and over-saturated. MGS5 looks much more subtle and... realistic. Also, Final Fantasy XV looks surprisingly spectacular.

What are talking about? This was first announced for PC and "next-gen platforms." Then it was confirmed for PS4 when that was announced. Lastly, it was confirmed for Xbox One.

meh...i expect more from the next gen
Commented on 2013-06-12 07:39:45
Beautiful. Just take my money again CD Projekt!

Well yeah I figured it was for PC because thats where it started, just didnt get the news about it being on PS4, which is great because thats the console im getting. Thanks for the clarification.

Have you guys watched the E3 trailer?

To me it was one of the most impressive titles. They show Geralt galloping on horseback through various open landscapes where the draw distances look insanely far (seriously, like 100 miles), and the whole open water thing, mermaids swimming up next to your sailboat (Geralt will definitely get his bone on in this game too LOL!).

Also towards the end of the trailer they show him walking into a HUGE city...and i mean HUGE. The scope of the city literally looked like it was the size of the entire Witcher 2 game. Combat looks flawless, and silky smooth aswell. Watching him fight those flying creatures as they swooped in to attack him was awesome.

This game is Day 1 buy for me. I hadnt played any of them, and randomly picked up the Witcher 2, just because i heard the GFX (on PC) were some of the best out and could push your system. And i was impressed. I definitely wont be able to play this on my current rig, thats for sure.

When I saw the burning village for the first time, I was like WTF?! Amazing. One of the best graphics of E3 for sure.
Commented on 2013-06-12 08:01:17
Overhaul the combat into better than what Witcher 2 was, and i will definitely get this.

Wasn't third person added with that big update the game received?
Commented on 2013-06-12 15:18:52
No, pretty sure it was there all along.

This is going to be one of the best games. They are slowly getting popular which they deserve :)

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker However where it says 21DX on this guy's laptop it says 21UQ on the site. But specs wise it's exactly the same. (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @Melmoth: The one site that shows a price of the laptop with the same specs says last known price was 367 euros. (2 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth the APU in it is from 2016, so it's a recent model. But if you don't manage to sell it for atleast 100 euro, you're in the red. (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @Melmoth: Yeah I have a hard time finding out more details. It's not for sale at any shops anymore. The guy says it's less than a year old. (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @Melmoth: But on the other hand there's no guarantee I will get a nice price for it but i will be without an Xbox. (2 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @Moonwalker: see if you can find out the price of the Acer. It seems like it's a fairly recent model, possibly current model. (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @Melmoth: I could still do the deal though, and try to sell that Acer. Highest bid for my OG Xbox One is now 100 euros. (2 Hours ago)
