Cautiously optimistic. TW1+2 didn't need to be open-world to be great games, and I could see a lot of things being sacrificed for it.

Oh my God, I will be so happy if Ciri is playing a big role in The Witcher 3. =D Great cover art, though. Can't wait for tomorrow's conference.

CDP if you sacrifice gameplay for empty space just so you can brag you got a world "20% bigger" than Skyrim I will lose all respect I had for you. If you truly did make a world that big it better be fun to play in.

Yea I guess we'll have to wait and see. They're a different sort of developer. Even with the restrictions of the land sizes in W2, it felt bigger than it was, ya know? It seems they may have the capacity to do it right.

New streaming technology (CDRED Engine 3)
Geralt's Memory is restored
No chapters/acts
Dude is fucking DONE fighting for everyone else
Everything from solving MYSTERIES to slaying monsters
Coming out on "all top-of-the-line" consoles - I'd say that confirms next-gen is in.

I'll be back with more.

Is it ok to post the screens from the mag, mods?

Hnnnnnngggggg. Straigh into my veins. I feel sorry for whatever games come out the year this is released, because this all I will be playing. Also, if my PC starts to show its age when this is released, whichever next-gen console has the better version just shot up to day one purchase for me. This is the kind of game I'll buy a new console for, assuming they are more powerful than my current PC.

Thank you based CDProject

Why would it be a bad thing that it's hitting next gen consoles early in their lifetime? It certainly won't hold the game back.

1. Can someone care to estimate the world size of TW1 vs TW2 vs Skyrim?

2. Does this mean no "Fast Travel" between two locations?

I have high hopes for this game because CDPR promises that it can tie a great tightly knit story (I would assume something akin to TW2) with a world that is much bigger which has its caveat pertaining to losing interest. It happened to me in GTAIV and Skyrim. And before the end, you have pretty much seen every thing (like enemy types etc) before the end.

I hope the world actually contains stuff instead of just empty space like Skyrim. I hope they don't reuse assets too much, because that's one of the things I loved about TW2, every location looked like it had been designed from the ground up, as opposed to locations in an Elder Scrolls game for example, where you can clearly see they just assembled the same walls, tables, stones you've already seen in 100 different places before.

Still really hyped though, but I'm a bit worried.

We need a trailer!

The details sound frikkin' awesome! 20% bigger than Skyrim's world? As long as it is filled with interesting, unique areas couldn't ask for more.

On the topic of the cover itself, I really like the art piece.

The horses in the foreground grab your eye, following their 'movement' with your eyes leads you to the destruction and chaos below in the village. The plumes of smoke lead up towards a mysterious winding path leading into eerie mountains, then the distant light catches your eye to the right and the gap of light leading down returns you to the focus of the piece.

Nah, it's definitely going to be Ciri.

Of course, if Geralt has his memories back, there's no way Yennifer isn't going to be involved, even if she doesn't have her memories back either.

Probably not. The girl on horseback looks like she has blonde hair. Yennefer's hair is black, if I'm recalling correctly.

Ciri is my guess.

When is Geralt gonna change his clothes and get new armor?

That cover looks like Mexico from RDR, I don't like this.

Horses are such a cop out, give us some imaginative travel system.

His beard still looks bad.

Why are his thighs so big?

Where's Trish?

Where's the sex cards?

Skyrim to me, was an absolute bore. I loved the world, and being able to explore it. But it really felt lacking in missions and things to do.

So I totally agree. I'm cool with the big world, just make use of it. Give us something to do.

Aye, thank you.

Nah, probably just an estimate to show the game world's size.
