    Almost looks too good to be true.

    But I need to play 1 and 2 before it comes out.

    Can't wait for this one and Cyberpunk 2077. I absolutely loved TW2.

    Damn it, that trailer looks friggin' incredible. I'm not familiar with the games or the stories/novels though. Anybody know if I'd have to play the other games/read the novels before playing this one?

    From what I have read, you won't need to play either of the first two games or read the books before playing this one.

    It's all a matter of personal preference, I still haven't even finished the first two or read the books. :lol:

    I mean, preferably I would jump into it knowing some of the backstory. It would have been great if I had heard of and started the series earlier, but alas, I didn't, and I can't be bothered to now. :lol: I was just wondering though; I don't yet own any of the new generation consoles (or a decent pc), but in case I ever do get one, I'll know what to get. This one looks promising and will likely be on that list. ;)

    So the original Witcher 3 thread is almost a year old and hasn't been posted in for just as long, so I decided to make a new one.

    Anybody else got this pre-ordered? Since it's release is in a week, I thought I'd just post some updates on it that people might not have seen, etc.

    I'm super stoked to find out how Geralt's saga comes to a close, supposedly it's ending on a high note.

    The game's looking astounding so far, and CD Projekt Red aim to please again, and again. They've added some pretty cool features, including an entire card game (sort of like Magic The Gathering) and the magical beard of Geralt that will actually grow over time. There will also be dynamic game-changing events, such as one of the devs says you might run into a quest in a small village, and if you don't take it, the village might be destroyed the next time you come back as a consequence of not helping them out.

    Is there anyone else that can't wait for this game? I've been waiting for an absolutely great RPG, and this looks like it's going to scratch that itch.

    Here's some recent vids of gameplay on Xbone and PC (early build).

    This is from Angry Joe's video, just to show off how big this game actually is.

    This is him on the map right off the coast of the biggest part of The Skellige Isles: (he's the small black arrow)

    And this is him in the same position off the coast of The Skellige Isles, but with the map zoomed out to the World Map view:

    So it's safe to say that this game is utterly MASSIVE and that it's setting a new precedent for open-world singleplayer RPG's. And remember, it's completely open-world! No loading screens between zones, or going between the outside world and like a house or a pub. It's all completely open, loading screen free.

    Looks like it's already getting some good reviews on Metacritic. I'm curious to see some comparos of it between xbox and PS4 (not just graphics). Not sure which system I should get it for!

    Gamespot just gave it a 10 out of 10 with their latest review.

    CD Projekt Red is so confident about the game that they're allowing reviews to be released a week early, while people still have the ability to cancel their preorders. That's a bold move, they know they have a masterpiece on their hands.

    (Warning, lots of spoilers in the review)

    Thread merger confused the .... out of me.

    Either way, SIX more days!

    And in anticipation, here's a very in-depth 3-part preview of the game by Gopher on YouTube.
