UPDATE: Last night’s Clueless Gamer with Conan O’Brien was awesome.
Original story below.
T-minus 12 days until The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt releases. The wait became even harder today after CD Projekt Red released a new trailer. Titled Rage & Steel, there is plenty of both to go around.
I believe this is also the first time we see Ciri fighting in-game.
A few things to note:
This is PC footage. The 60 frames per second option gives it away. Consoles versions run at 30 frames per second.
It’s gorgeous. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a fantastic looking game. If you have a PC that can handle it, you are in for a treat.
Ciri is a badass. I thought Geralt was the biggest badass. Nope. We get a small tease of Ciri at the end of the trailer, and she takes out folks even quicker. And, she’s a playable character in The Witcher 3.
Arrows with outlines? I like everything about the trailer except this. I get it from a game design standpoint, but I just don’t like the look of it. Here is a GIF of what I’m talking about.
Can May 19th hurry up already? Every trailer makes the wait harder and harder. Just give it to me already.
Three more must see Witcher 3 trailers
If you only watch one of these – watch this one. It’s five minutes long and covers most of what you will be doing in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
Worried about the PS4 version? Worry no longer. Here are 5 minutes of PS4 footage.
And, this is my favorite trailer. The music helps make this trailer stand out. This was the trailer that got me aboard the Witcher 3 hype train.
