well skyrim was big and empty and its size was the reason so many casuals got into it"OMG IT TAKES MORE THAN 100 HOURS TO FINISH SO IT MUST BE A GOOD GAME"they cant understand that quantity doesnt equal quality,they just want to be fed randimly generated fetch and steal quests to play till the end of time

I enjoy Bethesda Games since Morrowind, i like the engine (even with bugs), like the freedom, the open world, but Witcher 2 is awesome. The action, the story, the combat, everything is great, if they manage to do make a open world with freedom like Skyrim, then im sure its going to be one of the best RPGs made.

Imo the first game was actually a better play just because of the feeling and larger amount of unique enemies, to be exact the bestiary in witcher 1 is totaled at 76 and witcher 2 it's only 32.

If the upcoming game is as big as they say it is! Then we could hopefully see witcher where it deserves to be, redefining rpg's for the next generation.

skyrim's combat was so clunky and easy and stupid and boring. looking forward to this tho, witcher series is one of the few rpgs these days to retain their difficulty and the combat is no exception imo

Open world? Inspired by Skyrim? 20% bigger world? Damn...CDPR seems to have an uncanny knack for knowing what we gamers want. How can you do anything but root for these guys?

bought witcher 2 for my pc first could barely run it so i bought it for the 360, just built a new rig with 3770k 32gigs ram and a gtx 680 cant wait to see what it looks like no more 20-30fps, it only supports dx9 I think could be wrong, this and metro were the 2 most taxing games i have on pc. Cant wait for 3 its looking very promising

Skyrim's size isn't what made it awesome. It's what you could do, how you could get lost in the world. The witcher's narrative is good, do i care about the world though? We will see.

There'd better be enough content to justify the size of the world of TW3! This sounds incredibly ambitious!

how can you complain about this.

even if you didn't like skyrim, it has offered possibly the most immersive world in gaming history, if CDred manges to merge that with the great story and gameplay of the witcher series then we're getting an RPG that makes skyrim dark souls and the witcher seem like shit.... that's how good it will be if they nail it and they certanly can.

this is officialy my most anticipated game in my gaming life :D

I don't really see why it wouldn't come out for PS4. Just because it hasn't yet means nothing. 1 was PC only and then they brought 2 to Xbox as well. And given that they said "all high-end platforms", it's at least plausible that they'll have been working on a PS4 version.

Also, why does everyone seem to think that comparing map size and open-world feel with Skyrim automatically means comparing story, complexity, and lore as well?

Skyrim wasn't that big.  How about making it 20% bigger than Daggerfall :P

The subtitle of the game is *The wild-hunt*...Amazing! The Witcher 3 might be the best in its series. I just hope my computer will be able to run this masterpiece of a game. 

Also a side note: I don't even care if the game will be twice the land Skyrim is I for one will play the Witcher 3 for the story.

Martin's arms and body keep moving throughout the video, looks like he's having a wank. Cam doesn't seem to mind though :O

They say no more quick time events... thats sad :( no more fistfights and gambling... Those are small details that gave soul to game, dont know why would they do that... Bigger world??? Why? I hope its not your main focus... And do not compare your self to Skyrim cos u have far more superior story and lore. Dont say Skyrim is bad but thats more hack n slash focused game...

You should donate 28gigs of your RAM to poor people because you won't be using it.

@Janpieterzun  

CDP's tight writing in a more open world could be a great combo.  If anything the game could be more true to the Witcher lifestyle then the first two.

I mean these guys wander around looking for problems to solve, in the inital two titles Geralt was railroaded into a very focused series of events.

@Janpieterzun  Well sure that's true that it's not size alone that makes Skyrim's world so impressive, but the size, scale, and scope of the world is indeed one of its major appeals. It's the reason why you routinely hear people say that they've sunk 300 hours into the game.

@vihazur So you mean they should make like 2 square miles worth of hand made content and produce an engine that would cover houndreds of thousents square miles with copy/paste landscape and villages? Sure, I guess they could do that if they wanted to...

@vihazur How about not to expect an elder scroll game but The Witcher 3 with everything same as that of fantastic withcer saga and huge map to make it even better .?

@Godlikan Please, The Elder Scrolls has amazing lore (with 300+ in game books to prove it), story? Nah. But lore... The Witchers lore draws far to directly from Lotr, the story's amazing though.

@Godlikan 

Dice poker was awesome...I always loved the soundtrack and feel of it...but I guess fist fighting could be made into a real time event, just like fighting itself, instead of a quick time one...it wouldn't be that much of a big deal in my opinion

@Godlikan I only heard no more QTE (which is good) I never heard them saying anything about brawl and gambling... Where did you hear that?

@Godlikan well thank fucking christ - those minigames were about as pointless as the ones in AC3.

@Godlikan I am sure there will be gambling and brawls. Calm down there are 2 years to go

@Godlikan Bigger world but remove all these aspects?? wtf..... I liked both the gambling and fist fighting quests,where each town had its own fist fight champion and you had to beat him..

@lindallison @blkgsr Indeed. I build my PC with 8GB RAM and never reached its max with any game, even using some softwares all opened at the same time, never reached 8GB. Don't know why people expend in so much RAM to not use it.

@LocoBaxter @Mariner32 I disagree. I stoped playing SKyrim after about 25 hours because nothing I did mattered. So I would do a quest for this faction, sure why not? Okay, done. Now I'll go and do some shit for these people. Does it have an impact at all? No. It gives me the choice to do what I want, but unless there is a reason for me doing it besides "I want to do this for these people" then it just gets boring imo. 

The world of Skyrim is amazing though. Walking around looking at the mountains and creeks was just fantastic! And that music in the background made it all soo much better!
