Throwing out empty praises isn't really in my repertoire. However, I would be absolutely lying if I didn't have anything but praises to sing for CD Projekt RED's The Witcher 3. The game, above and beyond, not only looks absolutely amazing but it has play mechanics to match it.
CD Projekt RED ticked off a few gamers today by revealing exclusive items for the Xbox One version of The Witcher 3. Their angry reaction prompted the developer to explain their decision.
There have been many instances where rumors spurred that with the introduction of DirectX 12 we could see more games on the Xbox One hitting 1080p consistently. However, one developer doesn't buy into that belief.
For now, CD Projekt RED has confirmed to Eurogamer that The Witcher 3 is running 900p at 30 frames per second on the Xbox One and 1080p at 30 frames per second on the PS4.
CD Projekt RED just released the official E3 2014 trailer for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and the subtitle of the trailer is “Sword of Destiny”.
Although CD Projekt's roots are in PC development, the developer feels that the Xbox One and PS4 versions of The Witcher 3 will be very comparable. Co-founder Marcin Iwinski says that there won't be huge differences between the different versions.
CD Projekt RED has made it known that The Witcher 3 won't a be cross-generational game like Assassin's Creed IV, Watch Dogs, Call of Duty: Ghosts or Battlefield 4. The team won't be wasting time try to down-scale their game to run on the old haggily consoles, but will instead focus on the new, pristine and fresh devices from Sony and Microsoft.
CD Projekt RED's CEO sent out some rather uplifting news for PC gamers the world around: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be DRM-free in all its incarnations, whether it be digital or boxed. Just to be absolutely certain about this news, there was an open letter let loose to the community to certify that CD Projekt is serious about being community-friendly.
AAA game development budgets start at $10 million; the average AAA game costs $20 million to develop with maybe $20 or $30 million in marketing. Spending upwards of $40 million for a mediocre game in the AAA business is a common thing. We hear it often. CD Projekt RED is diffusing a lot of those inflated budgets for their games, however, as they revealed that The Witcher 2 only cost $10.36 million to develop.
A new cinematic trailer has leaked for The Witcher 3, courtesy of Gamechup, ahead of a countdown that CD Projekt RED has up on their website. The trailer doesn't contain in-game footage but it does showcase a bearded Geralt taking out some “monsters”.
While E3 2013 kept on rolling on the LA Convention Center show floor, several developers took to higher ground, holding their press meetings in rooms tucked out of the way on the second floor. One such group was CD Projekt Red and their game, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, was easily one of the biggest of the show.
The Witcher 3 will introduce a level of open-world exploration not seen in previous chapters in the series. Ten new screenshots from CD Projekt RED show off some of the expansive environments that players will roam through.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt might be the one of the best-looking games of next year. A new set of screenshots give us a closer look at the impressive visuals in this PC and next-gen console RPG.
Porting is serious business in the world of interactive entertainment. During this current generation of gaming porting has become front and center for most multiplatform games, mostly because ports don't always turn out so great. However, with CD Projekt Red and The Witcher 3, they're not worried because the PS4 is portastic.
CD Projekt RED has provided a new set of screenshots from their multiplatform RPG The Witcher 3. They also explained a bit more about the open-world design at the heart of the game.
