Since you guys aren't around for the Witcher 3 live stream here's some juicy stuff!

Epic new trailer:


Release date:
February 24th 2015


Standard Edition:

Collector's Edition:

Digital here too.


Dat <censored> statue OMG <3
It weighs around 4 1/2 lbs and is made of Polystone, so not some cheap tat. (My FFVII AC statues are made of the same)


Collector's Edition pre-order on Amazon UK: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00I9WV4SS/ [£94.99] [Edit: Amazon increased their price to £129.99]
Crazy good price for what you're getting. (I've already pre-ordered it :D)

Pre-ordered the Collector's Edition. Looks amazing - as you rightly say MS, DAT STATUE!!!

Can't describe how stoked I am for this. Stoked for Cyberpunk just as much though - CDPR are gods among men!

Indeed they are!

There wasn't a video of this available earlier so couldn't include it in my post but someone appears to have put one up now:


I was going to buy the CE regardless of its contents but I was hoping there'd be a statue in there of some kind hehe. CDPR have gone that extra mile once again though with the polystone. Unlike what you'd get in most other CE's which include statues, which (whilst they can still look great and be extremely detailed like the AC ones) are 9 times out of 10 the lightweight plastic stuff. No other developer/publisher would be charging so little for something like this either. The Skyrim CE for example (with its PVC statue) cost £130. Yet this is some quality polystone sculpturing right here. Gorgeous.
Then you look again at all the contents they put in TW3's standard edition (likewise with TW2 when it released), their stance on DRM, DLC and all that stuff. You really gotta love em :)

Now I just need to make sure I've got my full PC upgrade out of the way (early next year) in time for TW3s Feb 24th release. No way am I turning settings down to run this baby!

don't know which version i'll take just yet, but I am very stoked for this game... Really didn't like the first game, also because I tried to play it when I just bought the second game on a steam deal and the graphs and controls were all too 'old' I just couldn't get into it anymore.

I really enjoyed the second game and I hope the third will be able to deliver all it promises to be

Hey, Anny. We did good pre-ordering the CE day one. Amazon bumped their price up to match GAME.

Knew this would happen :) Excellent saving!

Still think we might get it for around £80 overall come launch with the price guarantee, but I'd be happy with it as is tbh. Great deal!

Unless they get allotted a few more later, Amazon.co.uk, .com and .fr have now sold out of the PC Collectors Edition. Impressive!

This game just continues to justify why I'm willing to pay for a CE of it!

17 weeks doesn't sound so long when you say it out aloud but it's going to feel like forever haha :D
Lots of games to keep us entertained before then however so those should help pass the time. Dec and Jan aren't too busy (PC releases of MGSV:GZ & GTA5) but Nov is packed to make up for it!

as i said on fb, better delayed to may than have a piece of shit release like AC:U (and ACInitiates and AC Nomad) had (they all cover the same product and should be considered one).


ACInitiates and nomad are still completely shite with the later refusing to start up on my win phone 8 (it used to work, then they broke it)

Aye. If they feel these extra weeks and necessary then I'm happy that they've decided to delay it (again) even though that decision is not going to go down well with some folk. Sucks that we have to wait even longer for it now ofc, but I'm sure we'll end up with an incredible game by the end of it.

Besides, it's not like we'll be stuck for new games to play as there's quite a few titles to be looking forward to from Jan-March :)

For those of you who missed the tweet a few days ago, there will be a live stream of TW3 tonight (7pm GMT) featuring around 15 minutes of new gameplay footage ;)


I'll dump this in here too since it went ignored in the 2015 thread (or appeared to do):

Not sure what the recommended are the recommendations for exactly. Whether that's 1080/30/high, 1080/60/high, or ultra, or what. (Going to guess the first one). Will edit if they clarify :thumb:


and some new screenshots whilst I'm here!

Still looks great for an open world game with this kinda scale but like what happened with the Watch Dogs "downgrade", TW3 appears to have taken a hit in that department too. Don't get me wrong, it's still my most anticipated game for 2015 alongside MGSV and I'm sure CDPR will deliver with it. Tis just a shame.
