The Witcher 3 Conan O’Brien Footage Was not Running on Xbox One


Earlier today we brought you the Clueless Gamer review of The Witcher 3 by Conan O’ Brien. Interestingly, the Xbox One copy was showcased in the intro of the video, leading many to believe that the gameplay footage was from the Xbox One version.

Senior Games Designer at CD Projekt RED Damien Monnier clarified on Twitter that the footage was not from the Xbox One version but rather “PC but an old build (this was recorded a while ago).”
Asked whether there would be a flying mount of some sort. Community and website coordinator Marcin Momot stated that,

“No flying. Sorry.”

Level designer Miles Tost also emphasised that the Xbox One is looking as good as the other versions.

“No, of course not. It looks and runs as great as the other platforms do.”

Level Designer Miles Toast revealed tons of interesting new information during a livestream hosted by GoG.com, yesterday. Nvidia has made available the first screenshots from The Witcher 3 that demonstrate Nvidia features like HairWorks and HBAO+. Nvidia has also released a press release announcing that both Batman Arkham Knight and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be included in their GPU bundle with the GTX 980 and GTX 970 GPUs.

You can checkout the last Ultra settings 1080p 60fps footage provided by YouTuber ImAnderZEL, as well as the previous video here. Note that the video is not of the highest quality and it from a previous build of The Witcher 3 and not the final. The specs of the system are - GTX 980, i7 4790, 8GB.

The Witcher 3 is just two weeks away from release, and as we have previously covered, CD Projekt has already announced that pre-load options are already live, as well as the unlock times for The Witcher 3.

The Witcher 3 will release on May 19 2015 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. We will bring you any new information on The Witcher 3 as soon as it becomes available. Be sure to check out our previous coverage for more information on The Witcher 3, here and here.
