New Witcher 3: Wildhunt footage appears

A few minutes of footage from CD Projekt's upcoming open world RPG, The Witcher 3: Wildhunt, has appeared online, showing us a mixture of exploration, in-game cut scenes and combat. The engine also gets a good showing too, with plenty of up close shots showing serious detail in the faces of characters – though as in previous Witcher games, Geralt is the prettiest – and the environment.

In this short clip we see Geralt making his way through a swamp, finding a small child who leads him onwards to his objective, but not before he fights a couple of Drowners. During the combat our hero flits about with his sword, showing some of the twitch based dodge mechanics, though he does hit a lot of air. The magic looks impressive as ever however, especially when it displaces water, as there's some truly beautiful physics going on there; ripples being sent out from the source and interacting with one another.

Geralt's character looks particularly human at times. CD Projekt have done excellent work with his character model

The way the characters transition from running, to jogging, to walking is incredibly smooth too.

The Witcher 3: Wildhunt hits PCs, Xbox One and PS4 on 24th February 2015.

KitGuru Says: Man that looks pretty. While not every character will have the detail of Geralt himself, he could be the most detailed in-game model I've ever seen.
