CD Projekt RED, revealed some entirely new gameplay footage, as part of their PAX East panel. The new video is almost eight minutes long, follows Geralt through No Man's Land. The panel was titled 'What It Takes to Build a Next Gen Open World Game', hosted by Major Nelson and featuring senior game designer Damien Monnier.
Narrated by Peter Gelencser, Senior Level Designer, the new 7-minute gameplay video takes players on a guided tour of parts of No Man’s Land, one of the giant regions available for exploration in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Watch Geralt discover the secret behind the phantom of the trade route and see him fight a Royal Wyvern to save members of a remote village in need of help.
Monnier, detailed some of the features that were cut from the game,
"At some point we had the idea of ice-skating," he said.
"It was more than an idea - it was actually a prototype. You were going to ice-skate and fight, and you could slice heads and the blood goes on the ice and it's beautiful. I really liked it. It did look amazing, but ultimately - this feature was going to be at the end of the game and introducing new game mechanics at the end of the game was quite wonky."
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be bundled with the GeForce 900 series GPUs
With the recent information that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be bundled with the GeForce 900 series GPUs, anticipation for the game, grows even larger. One of the biggest games of the year, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, takes advantage of GeForce technologies such as Nvidia HairWorks and Nvidia APEX, to further enhance the visual quality. It would certainly offer a very exciting combination for those looking to upgrade. Information on whether the newly announced GTX Titan X , will be included in the promotion as soon as it releases is unknown at this point.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, is stated for a May 19th release on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC platforms. We will bring you any new information prior to its release as soon as it becomes available.
