The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Recommended Posts

Still have a week to go, but reviews are already appearing. All review copies are of the PS4 version, so no PC sites or information on PC performance right now, but eventually.

 

GameSpot a 10/10, IGN a 9.3/10, Game Informer 9.75/10, GamesRadar a 4/5, Destructoid 8/10, and GameTrailers 9.8/10. GameSpot actually gave a perfect score, which it hardly ever does.

 

PS4 screenshots without the HUD.

 

Technical issues will hopefully be corrected with the day one patch, but all in all, things are looking good. Well, except for GamesRadar's hilarious line about the game not being "open world" because there are four total areas that you can't travel to in real-time. Oh the horror! No loading screens to enter any building, like in Skyrim, yet I have to fast travel to some spots, with one of them being the beginning area once the rest of the map opens up.

 

Btw, for those with the game on GOG, pre-load for it is live. Think Steam is, too.

A whole week to go.  I'm glad school is out and I have a month before summer session.  This will be a lot of late nights for me.

After 3 long years The witcher: Wild Hunt is finally ready to go The reviews are already out, and the reception is amazing. We can't wait to hand our baby over to you.
 
It's a very important milestone for all of us here. We went from 50 people on the first Witcher to over 200 creating a massive open world of Wild Hunt.
 
It's a grand scale now, but the nuance and soul of the series are intact. We wouldn't have it any other way.
 
This one is for the fans who supported us all this time; Those who cheered for a different kind of fantasy
 
One that's dark, unsettling and personal. Here's something to sweeten these last days of waiting. Here's "A night to remember", a short, spoiler-free cinematic.
 
PS: In terms of scale, let us just say that the town of Novigrad in our game has over 2000 openable doors! Imagine the mass of load time it would generate in the Witcher 1 ;)

I'm wondering if I will be able to pull off Ultra with the system in my signature.  I'm thinking no which sucks.

Recommended specs list a system similar to yours, just with a GTX 770 and 8GB RAM, so you may be able to get some things on Ultra. Dunno if everything, but certainly some.

Any codes floating around from that video card upgrade?!  Thought I would ask, but I plan on buying a box version at wal-Mart/Target cause I have the other 2.  Huge fan of this series.  Time to score some fisstech and hunker down :)

Some spoilers with regards to returning characters, so don't watch if you're wanting to avoid that.

The main story is 50 hours and most of the reviews spent 90+ in it, so probably not. :lol:
