GC: The Witcher 3 Gameplay video

GC: The Witcher 3 Gameplay video

CD Projekt Red has released this 5 minutes-long gameplay video of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt showing Geralt trying to find out what's killing the villagers from Downwarren. All that in glorious 1080p 60fps, and the least we can say is it looks great, from the environments to the music.
Note: The video has been captured at 60fps but the gameplay shown is running at 30fps.

Thank you. The one on youtube has some of the worst compression artifacts I've ever seen.

LOL....and idiots on Youtube called this the peasant version, while it was the PC footage all along.

Gah i want this game so badly, the witcher 2 was one of the best games i have ever played so when i heard that the witcher 3 was going full open world it was pretty much the best news ever.

Yup, seems that even the GS bitrate has to struggle in this video, still 1000x times better than on Youtube, so a big thanks to GS.

looks ok, i cant say it wows me graphics wise because there are still bad textures to be seen and the facial animations in the cutscenes look not so good at all

Video isn't running at 60fps.

I love you, Gamersyde!

This is the peasant version of the game. The PC version will look even better as it has higher graphical settings, better tesselation and more hair physics.

They stated when they were showing Xbox One version with the first video...but what about this one? PS4, XO...????

I don't know why, but this video reminds me of how disappointed I am with how Fable Legends is turning out (not being a true Fable action-adventure game). Must be the vibe I'm getting from this particular video. It looks really good, I haven't had the chance to try either one of its predecessor.

February is going to be packed with amazing games : The Witcher 3, Evolve, The Order 1886, Dying Light and possibly Bloodborne.

Some Xbox One's buttons are showing up in the inventory menu.

Gamersyde vids are awesome but I cant afford it. This video is only five minutes and over 1GB. This will take a few hours in my crappy connection. Can you guys please give a slightly compressed version where the file size is significantly smaller but quality reduction is not that noticable. In case of this video, that will still be way better than the youtube version which just sucks. Imagine what my dilemma will be when they release the full version of the video. It was labelled as teaser gameplay on the official channel.

Looking damn good!

Nice to see they didn't change the interface much. I may have to buy it when it's released. Enjoy this series quite a lot.

*Geralt looks like he's been pounding back some booze though, his cheeks look bigger.

skyrim still looks better

Given its the PC version, this isn't exactly great news for the PS4/XB1 ports
Commented on 2014-08-14 09:08:36
Animation is still somewhat poor :(

I herad them calling a build they showed at SDCC poorly optimized and bad, so hopefully the framerate will pick up as they go along.
