The-Witcher-3-Igni-2

We’ve seen The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt already. We’ve seen quite a bit of it actually. We already know it’s going to be one of the most visually stunning games ever released, but now CD Projekt Red is just showing off.

They weren’t in the spotlight during any of the major conferences, but that didn’t stop CD Projekt Red from releasing probably the best little bit of gameplay of the show this year. A new six minute teaser was released late yesterday, showing Geralt of Rivia in all his chainmail glory. Some up close shots of him during conversations show just how many little details have been crammed into character models, with the White Wolf looking truly spectacular.

But things truly become marvelous during combat. Geralt’s spells looked underwhelming in The Witcher 2, but that’s not the case this time around. Seeing little sparks fly from his hand as he hurls flames at enemies is gorgeous, topped only by some incredible water physics that bring Geralt’s version of a Force Push to life.

I think you understand what I’m trying to say by now; The Witcher 3 is just getting more and more stunning by the day. The final chapter in CD Projekt Red’s acclaimed trilogy will hit shelves in February next year.

I am a little snowflake, and you can all call me Sandy until I figure out how to edit this thing, which is probably never. Also, Geoff's a bastard.

    I will buy this before I buy anything else in Feb. Valentines day is now reserved just for Geralt. Damn.. the missus is ganna be so mad. :P

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      No no, just tell her you bought it for her too – because he’s a lover & a fighter. She’ll understand right?

      • SargonTheGreatPandaOfAkkad

        If I told her that, she’d kick me off until she finishes the game herself. She finished Tomb Raider before I even started, man. Don’t be giving her any ideas!

        *deletes the internet

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          That’s a keeper right there.

          • Spaffy

            Hell yea

        • ToshZA

          Buy 2 copies dude. You know you wanna.

  • Spaffy

    I cannot wait for this … :)

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    Aw yis! In that header image Geralt is all, “Stand back COD soldier man, I’VE GOT THIS! And after that, I’ll take every female relative you have that’s over the age of consent, because I’m the White Wolf, baby!” Or that’s how I imagine it.

    • SargonTheGreatPandaOfAkkad

      You need to keep your dreams and reality seperate, mate. I’m just saying. :P

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        You sound just like one of the voices. So they are real.

        • SargonTheGreatPandaOfAkkad

          Fine. You caught me. I do live in your head. Now ask yourself… how (or when) and from where are you even writing this?

  • Ryanza

    OMG did you see the water physics!!! This game is all I need till Cyberpunk 2077.

  • Spaffy

    I will probably have to upgrade my pc, again :(

  • Ryanza

      btw it’s worth it to see the original 60fps videos.

  • http://www.themovies.co.za Rinceable

    Man that looks amazing.

    • geelslang

      Yes, yes it does.

    NOOO!!! After a full week of having access to youtube, our IT department decided to royally fuck me. Was soo amped to watch this vid, even had a little one liner planned.
    EDIT: Everyone calm down, the page just didn’t load properly! I have seen the vid!

  • Viking Of Science

    Confession: I touched myself inappropriately while I watched this video last night….

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      What? You touched yourself with a DA:I picture?

  • Ryanza
    • Viking Of Science

      one of those creatures should be emblazoned with “Dragon Age Inquisition” :P

  • Ryanza
    • Hammersteyn

      LOL!

    • Sageville

      WIN!

    Iiittt lllloookkksss oookkaaayyy iifff iii ccaannn iiiigggnnnnorrree ttthhheee ssttttuuutttteeerrrrrringggg.

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      Pretend you’re playing it on an Xbone. tee hee.

    • Ryanza

      That’s just because of the video that’s so compressed. I downloaded the 60fps video last night and there is no stuttering and it looks really good.

  • Brady miaau

    What about their cyberpunk game?

    • Ryanza

      E3 2015 I hope

      • Brady miaau

        Yeah, me too. But it worries me when something is released with much fanfare and then silence for a long time.

        I have seen that first-hand with product development

        • Ryanza

          All effort is on The Witcher 3. I’m sure they don’t want focus off The Wither 3 at all. But that doesn’t mean the team working on Cyberpunk 2077 is not busy with it. But for now till release it will only be Witcher 3 promotion.

          It’s amazing how that Cyberpunk 2077 trailer and just knowing it’s CD Projekt Red behind a cyberpunk rpg game, created so much excitement.

        • Alessandro Barbosa

          Yeah they’re a small-ish studio, so I imagine they’re 100% focused on The Witcher 3 right now. They also warned that Cyberpunk was years away from releasing when they first announced it.

          I’m super excited to see their adaptation of it though :D

          • Brady miaau

            I agree, pity about luck of funding to do whatever you want

  • Ryanza

    armor upgrades.

    There will be 30 different armor in the game.

    • Sageville

      “Achievement Unlocked! – You spotted a difference in each level of armor.”

  • VampyreSquirrel

    OMG I so want this game… too bad I’d have it forever before I can play it… much like The Witcher 2.

    • Ryanza

      No. You buy the game then you fake your death, get a custom build coffin with a PC built in, and enjoy the game without life getting in the way. When you done just hope for a wifi signal.

  • Ryanza

    I’m busy reading and trying to get more Witcher books. Then I’m goin gto play The Witcher 1 (which I never played) then I’m going to play The Witcher 2.

    The The Witcher 3 promised at 100 hours and more playthrough. Now I take my time to play games, so I see myself taking a long ass time playing through The Witcher 3 and then of course I’ll have to replay it a couple of times.

    So The Witcher 3 is going to become the lowest common denominator. How many games I am going to skip because it just doesn’t cut it anymore. Oh and then Cyberpunk 2077 is coming. The gaming industry needs to change in order to compete.

    • JHN

      Once you have read all the books and watch the E3 2014 trailer again it will blow your mind because you pick up on a lot of the little details.

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      Don’t forget to import your save game from 1 to 2. Gives you some nice starting equipment & you’ll get a few references to what decisions you made in 1.

  • Galbedir

    I’ve never really believed in Love at first sight…until I saw this trailer. My word! Geralt’s character model and textures could pass off as cinematic quality during these convo scenes.

    • Galbedir

      My body is ready for this.

  • Ryanza

    Now I’m just waiting for the Lazygamer interviews with developers. Ask good questions.

    I don’t want to post interviews because I’m waiting for the Lazygamer interviews. But this guy asked some good questions.

    CD Projekt RED announced that the Xbox One collectors edition will include a clothed map and playing cards that’s based on the in-game card game.

    CD Projekt RED doesn’t need this kind of bad press now. The Witcher 3 needs to sale well. People are already losing their shit on the Witcher forum.

    This is really showing that Microsoft is in trouble. Buying a Tomb Raider title. Buying exclusive content for The Witcher 3. I would feel sorry for the Xbox One but Microsoft announced a DRM console. So fuck you Microsoft. I revel in your failure.

    The Xbox One version is only getting cards and a map extra. I couldn’t care. The Xbox One will be the most shit version of the game. So I guess extra cards and map balances that out. Microsoft hopes that’s the case.
    With the Xbox One’s resolution you won’t be able to see the cards in the game. So now you get the cards with the game so you can actually see it.
