The Witcher 3 Info And High-Res Screens

After sharing loads of info and exclusive media with GameInformer, CD Projekt RED throws us the rest of us pups a bone so to speak, in the form of more details about the company's upcoming RPG, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

Some rather sexy screenshots were released as well (well, to me, the game looks exactly the same as The Witcher 2 - not saying that it's bad though... just saying):

According to CD Projekt the in-game images you see here "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."

Here's more info:

The 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 studio.

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.

Oh and the devs also said that the game will look better on PCs. So there...

It's a bit comic-looking, don't you think? Or is it just me? It's 4 AM from where I am, so I may not be seeing things right.

It looks slightly different. Really a bit comic, especially the characters. Not so realistic as the previous games.

It's fucking gorgeous. Who gives a fuck if it's not photorealistic?

Looks pretty much the same as the previous one, except this time with larger open environments, oh yes, can't wait.

They're preliminary screenshots, folks. The Devs have over a half year to tweak and improve the graphics. At least give them credit for tackling a gigantic open world environment. Takes balls.

Wow, this looks like shit. Is it running on consoles? I bet it would look great on PC.
