How does it look? The version we saw was a pre-alpha build, so it did not represent how the game will look at release. But our first reaction was, "Hey, this game looks really great on the Xbox 360." CD Projekt is aiming for the equivalent of the PC version's medium settings on the Xbox 360, and we noticed some animation hitches, screen tears, and a few frame rate dips, but that's par for the course at this stage. The art design still shone through, and Gop was proud of how the art design was always the team's first concern with the visuals. He stated that even Witcher 2 players enjoying the game on low settings are incredibly pleased with how the game looks. The team's goal is to make sure that The Witcher 2 runs smoothly at 30 frames per second minimum.





Looks pretty damned good!

Yep, doesn't look bad at all. PC low or PC medium? (notice the lack of detail on Foltest's armor)

All rpg fans need to get this.

Looks pretty good, even for being equivalent to Low preset.

Gamespot text says CD Projekt is aiming for medium PC setting.

Looks solid, but I want to see what the forest of Flotsam looks like. How much foliage can it show off and how many FPS can it maintain?

This game was my drive to spend my savings on a gaming laptop and enter the world of PC gaming. This 360 announcement has allowed me to postpone that and provided the comfort of knowing i will be able to pay my rent for at least 6 more months!

im playing on medium settings and this don't look near as good
This is a pre-alpha build. They say in the article that they're aiming for Medium settings at 30 fps.

It's a great game, and is looking pretty nice for 360 owners. The more Witcher we get, the better. I'm sure this is coming to the PS3 sometime as well, considering the hidden note they had in the PC trailer.

Still looks exceptional. I don't know how they managed to make the game look that good on every graphical setting, haha.

Looks great! Hopefully it's a hit.

Too bad that hideous bloom can't be disabled.

I came for the lulz, and am leaving fairly impressed actually. But this needs to be addressed:

So, 680p?

Are the shots down-sampled or is that the native res the game will be running at? If the latter, it's not gonna look quite so good on a TV.

Looks better than it did on my PC(low settings, medium textures, AA, 720p), but I don't have an xbox so it's ok.

What's wrong with the colors in the first shot? Looks like there's no SSAO, I don't think it looked that great in the PC version though..

The lighting still looks very good, but the screens look supersampled.

Looks pretty friggin' amazing for 360. Nice job CD Projekt.
The only obvious concessions I'm seeing are res and texture size. Draw distance will probably be lowered, but outside of that it seems they've managed to keep a lot of the detail.

It's a great game, people: buy it.
