CD Projekt RED’s developers have been addressing a lot of questions from the fans at the official forums. The developer explains that the Frost effect has been replaced and also talks the delay and finishing moves. CD Projekt promises that the character's textures will be 'as sharp as ever'.


CD Projekt RED’s MilezZ stated:

“Of course we keep going over assets and polishing them, it’s among the reasons we pushed the game back – we see this as much as a bug as, say, a gameplay glitch. I can not really give you a clear answer as to the case with the bricks. They did look very out of place though so it is very likely that they were on someone’s task list and had just been bumped up in priority, because it was shown that it was seemingly more apparent than assumed.”

TheEvilChris explained that the delay of The Witcher 3 was not because of any particular version as they fix bugs and issues on all 3 platforms.

“When we polish a game, we fix bugs and issues for all 3 platforms, PC and consoles.”

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt features a "Horse Slow-mo" to enable more accurate combat

MilezZ confirmed that finishers can be turned off, and explained the team's  decision to implement a slow-mo effect while riding a horse.

“Actually, you can turn the finishers off in the game options.

Regarding “Horse Slow-Mo” – it is not meant as a sort of finisher. On the horse, when you hold the button for fast attack, it slows down time when you are close to an enemy. This allows you to line up your attack a bit better for a few split seconds. The window for this is relatively short, as it sort of wears off as soon as you get too close to the enemy.

Consider this: horse combat without the slow down didn’t play too well, since the horse movement is quite fast. The high speed, when testing, got even more problematic on horse to horse combat, so the short slow down window (again, only activated when holding the button within a certain range of an enemy) helps a lot here.”

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