The wait for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has grown exponentially longer since that recently announced delay until, gasp, May of next year. It means we've now now got a full five months to go until Geralt's adventure, like we've used a time machine and rather stupidly gone the wrong way.

Still, this stunning batch of new screenshots should help ease your woes and put to bed those rumours that The Witcher 3 was on the receiving end of a graphical downgrade. If you've got an absolute beast of a PC then it's safe to say that Wild Hunt is going to be one of the best-looking open-world titles we've ever seen, if not the best, if these gobsmacking new screenshots are anything to go by.

Lovely view isn't it? These give us a bit of a peek at some of new environments we'll be encountering as well as a look at Ciri, the newly-revealed playable character. She's the white haired one that looks like Geralt's sister in case you hadn't spotted her.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is now, fingers crossed, scheduled to launch on May 19th, 2015, for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. What are you doing to pass the time until The Witcher 3 arrives? What do you make of these gorgeous new screenshots?
