The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Sees New High-Res Screenshots, Artwork

CD Projekt wants you to know that its latest game, Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, will be one of the best looking things on current and next gen platforms once it sees a release later this year. Be the judge inside.

Press Release:

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt New Screenshots and Info About the Story-Driven, Open-World RPG from CD Projekt REDThe Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is an unprecedented combination of story-driven RPG and vast, living, open world. CD Projekt RED talks about how the studio achieves this union of different RPG approaches.

“The Witcher 3 is full of impactful decisions, and gamers will choose between storylines that exclude one another in a single playthrough, ensuring extensive replay value. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt crowns the trilogy with the main narrative, revolving around Geralt’s search for his loved ones and his conflict with the Wild Hunt. As players travel through the game, they visit lands with their own unique atmosphere, communities and memorable characters. CD Projekt RED didn’t create an open world with a singular theme, but concentrated on delivering diversified and engaging environments, 30 times larger than those in The Witcher 2.” said Adam Badowski, head of CD projekt RED sudio.

This setting changes depending on gamers’ actions not only when completing Geralt’s personal storyline, but also because of his involvement in major local plotlines in each land visited and many other carefully-designed side quests. All threads of this player-crafted tale interact with each other and the world, creating an even more nonlinear experience than ever before. The main narrative accounts for around 50 hours of gameplay in one playthrough, and the additional stories add another 50 hours of role playing, giving around 100 hours of total gaming time.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt announcement screenshots present the chilly islands of Skellige, one of the lands the players will visit during their adventures. Today CD projekt RED has released a set of in-game images from this archipelago. The images come from an early version of the game as the team develops a new renderer, which will be used in the final game.

The Witcher 3 will be available in 2014 for all high-end platforms, including PlayStation 4.

    beautiful!
    SO cant wait to see how this looks on PC, the witcher 2 is still a jaw dropper after all his time!
    1 think i hope they improve is the combat, it just feels a bit thin simplistic and boring.
    i wish they could add in the combat and weapon system of kingdoms of amalour.
    now THAT is how you make a action adventure combat system!
    O, and please for the love of god cut down on the side missions!
    one thing thats really frustrating me with the witcher 2, you can play the game for hundreds of hours and feel you have made absolutely ZERO progress!
    especially because the side missions dont really reward you much.
    they need to put the main missions on the front page, and all the little side stuff have it further in the background, and encourage people to go do them during short breaks in the main campaign, kinda like intermission at a play.
