The Witcher 3 is Official
Screenshots of next-gen RPG The Witcher 3
And yes, it's open world.
This is a next-gen project but don't expect visual miracles - at least not yet. The images you see are current in-game assets running on internal PC development hardware, apparently. The part of the engine that translates all that into what you see on screen will boast "significant improvements" by the time the game ships in 2014, noted GameInformer
I'm playing The Witcher 2 right now, and I almost gave up on the game at first because it was crazy hard. That said, I began the game on 'Hard' difficulty, so ended up on 'Normal' difficulty and it was much better. Once you get past the Prologue and into Chapter 1, upgrade some swords, armour and a few more abilities, the game seems to have become much easier.I bought the second one, it was much too difficult for me. I've always siad that one day i will try it again...
did you try playing it with ubersampling turned off? I have a pretty powerful system and run everything at high settings but ubersampling just kills it. Turning that off made all the difference.My PC just can't fun the Witcher 2 well enough for it to be fun. Sucks, cause I quite liked the first one, and think 2 would be great, but will have to wait for a more powerful computer!
It isn't really that difficult, but it's not a game where massive attack-button mashing is a very effective strategy either. Use potions to increase your speed (slows everyone else down really) and fight defensively against numbers. There are some really nifty signs as well. One of them (can't remember name) pushes back and knocks down opponents which is really effective to avoid swarming. In the novels, Geralt is a man who takes every advantage he has to get the job done and you should do the same when playing as him. This is not a game where buffs and magic is a funny side activity, it's essential for success especially until you've mastered the melee part of the game. I'd still focus heavily into the sword fighting skill tree though, it makes stuff much easier. Without mods, the alchemy tree is more or less useless.I bought the second one, it was much too difficult for me. I've always siad that one day i will try it again...
