The Witcher 2: Dev diary and a cutscene

The Witcher 2: Dev diary and a cutscene

The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings has already its first developer diary, dealing with the beginning of the development of the game plus an in-game cutscene. Still a year before its release.

it looks stunning. They claim it's the best looking RPG..and i have to agree. It's how i'd love fable to look..a more realistic, yet still fantasy, look about it.
Ofcourse looks are one thing, performance another..and by most accounts the first Witcher was abit all over the place. Hopefully this coming to console will offer something abit more steady and consistant in performance..regardless of whatever slight downgrades in visuals compared to high-end PC's. They seem to have faith that they've developed the engine flexable enough.

One concern is that they talk of this being a continued story from the first. Hopefully any conclusions from the first will be clearly spelt out in this, or better yet, they'll get the console version of the Witcher picked up again and release it beforehand..or a doublepack.

Cutscene was pretty good, didn't like the control set up on the first game.

Dear god, that looks incredible.

It makes Dragon Age's cutscenes look like wooden dolls being poked by sticks. Not to say I don't love DA, but... damn.

A bit bummed it's so far away, but hopefully that's enough time for them to make something glorious.

It really does make DA look like a last gen game. Loved the first game and I'm glad it's coming to consoles. My PC would never be able to run this.

That's a pity, because as good as it looks, I don't think the requirements for this would be too far beyond the average PC gamer's rig. If you could run Bad Company 2 on high, you could probably run this at a decent resolution and framerate.

As the current gen consoles get older, it's increasingly becoming a good time to be a PC gamer, which makes me happy. The only game on the horizon I want that isn't available for PC is Red Dead Redemption, but who knows, it might just make its way to PC as well.

Gotta say I look different from the last game but damn...this time Im even sexier lol

This is like damn good sex !
amazing looking game ! Hope the console versions have an more action approach to the fighting system. More like GOW or Conan. With bottoms mashing and combos..that would be great !

I have to admit it does look pretty damn good for an rpg cutscene. I've never expected to see something this good made in that country of mine. Hopefully the whole game will be as good as this cutscene.

    GriftGFX FFA deathmatch is pretty fun in OW even though it's totally not balanced. Great Tracer practice. (8 Hours ago)

    KORNdog The Orville episode 3 was amazing. Very heavy topic but handled it extremely well. (8 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I wasn't really setting up any specific comparison at all. I said modern phones and many PCs. That's pretty vague. You can set whatever limits on that you want. (9 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Granted.. synthetic benchmarks are just that.. but in Geekbench 4 a Snapdragon 835 can outperform a Q9550.. which is definitely faster than the E6600. (9 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX My personal history of personal computing goes back to 8-bit computers. I think 2017 ARM CPUs are amazing. (9 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @droezelke: I said E6600.. and its single core performance in synthetic benchmarks is certainly comparable. But yes. You can go back to the 80s. I didn't say anything about them being modern. (9 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @GriftGFX: no, a snapdragon 835 does not have computing power of a Q6600 (9 years old). Do you really want to go further in time to prove your statement made sense? (9 Hours ago)
