The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Opening Cinematic!

    Well, since my laptop can't run the witcher 2 (although it's roughly recommended spec so it should), I've bought a copy to play on my gf's 360. I'm finding the controls a little awkward, but I'm not sure if it's because of the game itself or because I usually play PS.

    I started on hard and it's not disappointed yet although one thing that annoys me is when I'm running past some herbs and press A to collect them, then he draws his sword as well. Combat is really fun, but enemies seem to be able to hit me nowhere near me, but I'm installing the game onto hd to see if it solves it.

    I find the inventory very thorough but quite confusing. I've seen that they've improved it in the 3rd game though and it's not that bad to find things.

    I'm on the stealth bit at the beginning which is kind of annoying because guards can see me before I see them and I refuse to fight them because it's a stealth bit (thank the gods for quicksave).

    The dialogue is awesome. I especially enjoyed pimp-slapping the noble.

    TLDR : Triss is hot.

    16 free DLC packs for anyone buying the game. Might as well preorder it at this point and sell my soul to these guys.

    The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt -- 16 free DLCs for everyone!

    Open Letter from Marcin Iwiński, co-founder and Joint CEO of CD PROJEKT RED

    “We love games. We love collecting them, playing them, and everything connected to that experience. Every time we reach out for a new release, we expect to be taken care of. We expect support if we encounter any problems, we love updates constantly improving the experience, and we feel really special when we receive free content that gives us more than we initially paid for. It doesn’t have to be huge, it can be an awesome skin for a character, or an extra sword, or armor.

    Unfortunately this treatment is quite rare these days. As gamers, we nowadays have to hold on tight to our wallets, as surprisingly right after release, lots of tiny pieces of tempting content materialize with a steep price tag attached. Haven’t we just paid a lot of cash for a brand new game?

    As CD PROJEKT RED, we strongly believe this is not the way it should work and, with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, we have decided to do it differently. Cutting to the chase, everyone who buys Wild Hunt will receive 16 specially prepared DLCs absolutely for free, regardless of platform. You don’t have to pre-order, you don’t have to buy any special edition to get them -- if you own a copy of Wild Hunt, they’re yours. This is our way of saying thank you for buying our game.”

    Regards,
    Marcin

    So yep, outside of the fair pricing policy, loyalty discounts, a MASSIVE amount of extras both for preordering and once its officially out in February, they're also promising 8 weeks after launch in which we'll be receiving new content on top, whether it is some gear variations, customization, missions or, very likely, a few side plot missions to add a bit more depth to characters.

    This is how product support should work.

    Though keep in mind that the certification process and the likes are only a thing on consoles. PC does not have those hurdles, at least not digitally. The retail version has to be pressed onto DVDs, obviously, but they can easily update the launch version you'd get from Steam or GOG to include any and all patch content by default - which they will.

    The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - An Open Letter (Official site)

    Dear Gamers,

    Ever since we started working on The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, we knew it would be an ambitious game. We wanted, and still aim, to give you an incredible experience, an epic adventure in a vast, completely open fantasy universe.

    The sheer size and complexity of The Witcher, key features of the title, have had a decisive impact on production. Now, nearing the end of our work, we see many details that need to be corrected. When we release the most important game in our studio’s history, we must be absolutely sure that we did everything we could to limit any bugs to a level that will allow you to enjoy the game thoroughly.

    With this in mind, we took another look at current workloads and what they mean for the team. Even though everyone is working at full speed, we concluded that we need another 12 weeks, so we are shifting the release date of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt to May 19th, 2015.

    We owe you an apology. We set the release date too hastily. It’s a hard lesson, one to take to heart for the future. We know what we want to do to make Wild Hunt one of the best RPGs you will ever play. And we continue to work hard to achieve just that. So, we apologize and ask for your trust.

    Thank you for the all support you show us on a daily basis. We truly do appreciate it. It has fueled us in our passion since the start and will continue to do so.

    The Board of CD PROJEKT SA

    TL;DR: The game is delayed for 3 months. May 19, 2015 is the new release date.
