The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is Looking Gorgeous With Six New Screenshots

Posted: 02:22PM

Today marks the first day of May, which means the wait is almost over for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The boots of Geralt await us, and to help tide you over a little bit longer we have six new screenshots. In them we have Geralt taking on some bandits in a three on one fight, which may not seem entirely fair, but then again, they're the fools taking on a witcher. Another one has Geralt on horseback as he's heading towards a herd of sheep, with plenty of them on-screen to show what REDengine 3 is capable of. We also have the witcher running through a field with some impressive shadows in front, and another where he's again on horse heading towards a shrine or monument of some kind.

A griffin appears yet again, so it certainly seems like the past comment about multiple griffins is true, and evidently the Igni sign is the best way to combat them (or bandits). Finishing it off is Geralt in a spiffy shirt wandering through a town, with a fast travel prompt over a road sign. The only loading screens during The Witcher 3 are when you decide to fast travel, with the loading time dependent on how far you're traveling. You'll also see them when you start up the game or die and reload (as expected), but otherwise CD Projekt RED has said that is it for loading screens.

The quest text in all the screenshots has been blurred to avoid spoilers, luckily. The HUD is rather large and the button prompts are displayed in all of them, so hopefully we can play with as many of those turned off as possible. Regardless, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is looking fantastic, and we can all play it on May 19. An Expansion Pass is also available to help extend the adventure by an additional 30 hours.
