You can already read our complete written review of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt right here, but for visual aid purposes, we went ahead and captured a host of spoiler-free footage and put it together for a full video review.
The complete video comes in at just over 12-minutes, and should be absolutely watched at 1080p so you can see just how good the pre day-one patch review version of the game was looking on PS4. And also because I imagine at 1080p, my voice sounds even sexier.

Look at these grfx downgrades coming up to launch.

Secondly, it's not just about visuals, the game and gameplay itself is the main standout here.

Also when you are talking about bait and switch then yeah it is all about visuals.
What has story got to do with bait and switch?

THIS is actually what happened. The 2013 videos and images were highly controlled set-pieces. I would much, much rather CDPR pump their hours into gameplay rather than creating a few extra assets the majority of Witcher 3 players wont see AND can be added at a later date as an Enhanced Version.

It's been made clear that the 2013 grfx were fine for a PC version of the Witcher 3.
Read the article I posted.

Also you's seen the new launch cinematic? f*****' brilliant.

The saddest thing is that this is allegedly the last time CD Projekt RED will touch the universe, but the game is going to reach Skyrim levels of expanded audiences beyond the core, so it'll introduce heaps of people to this rich and amazing world, but it's also the final destination.

Still Bring on Cyberpunk 2077.
Part of me hopes that they do indeed leave the Witcher alone now, don't sully a masterpiece with a lesser game in the future.

Wow huge difference. Disappointing

Yes, the game doesn't look as amazeballs as the original trailer, but that was two years ago. Yes it still looks amazing for an open-world game, and no the downgrade has not affected the game at all in any gameplay way.

This 'downgrade' people speak of, is full of s*** and misrepresentation and ignorance of game development.

People are b****ing because they 'think' the game graphics were intentionally 'downgraded' for the one and only reason to make the PC version similar to the console version graphics wise, because consoles. They don't even consider that it could be for a far more reasons, one of which is development time and dedication of staff, money and other assets for, what will be, a small percentage of the total players.
