The Witcher 3 Gets Six More Minutes of Gameplay Footage at Gamescom

Geralt visits the village of Downwarren and attempts to save its inhabitants.


The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

CD Projekt Red has released a new video of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt showing off nearly six full minutes of gameplay footage: no commentary, no interruptions--just the game. And, as usual, it looks fantastic.

The video starts off with Geralt entering the village of Downwarren and having a short conversation with a man who talks about a mysterious power that's been causing villagers to disappear. Geralt then sets out to deal with this problem, wandering off into a forest and swamp, battling enemies with a variety of the weapons he has at his disposal.

The Witcher 3 was originally scheduled to be out this year, but was delayed in March; it's now set to be released on February 24 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Its developer has pledged to not delay the highly anticipated game again, and while it being pushed back again would be disappointing, the more I see of the game, the more okay I am with putting up with whatever delays are necessary for the game to turn out as as good as it looks.
