Apologies for flooding you with not one, but two The Witcher 3 stories today, but we thought you might not be able to resist 15 minutes of brand-new in-game footage from CD Projekt RED’s RPG.

We’ve got three new gameplay trailers giving us one of the most in-depth looks yet at what we can expect from Geralt’s adventure, including a hectic dungeon romp against some wraithlike creates and some glorious horse-riding through some snowcapped peaks and wooded highlands.

It's worth noting when checking out this footage that this is in fact from the Xbox One version of The Witcher 3, so we can expect the PC version to look significantly better than this already stunning footage. What's particularly impressive is how alive everything looks as Geralt trots about, with wildlife scurrying out of the way and little tracks and paths weaving their way across the landscape, just begging to be explored. 

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was delayed a little while back from its previously anticipated launch in February, and will now be arriving on May 19th worldwide, for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Ahead of then, be sure to check out the official Witcher 3 system requirements to make sure you're gaming rig's up to the task come May.

Has got me more hyped. BTW Am I the only one who thinks it looks a bit worse actually ? I know that the first trailer was in ALPHA so many changes would have occurred.

I'm quite sure this isn't Xbone footage. GameSpot released a video with their impressions from the hands-on preview they got to play for 3 hours and they said it was running on a PC, with two GTX 980 GPUs or something like that. Nevertheless, this game looks absolutely stunning regardless of what system the gameplay was captured on.

I dont want to dissapoint you or anything but seeing as the minimum is an HD 7870 i think high settings is a bit of a long shot if you want good fps. i would probably say tweaked medium to low.

OK.
That world is big. Like very, very big. I was pissed before because they decided to push back the release date, but i now see that with a game that big there's ought to be bugs and glitches that can somehow break the game.
Ok. Take your time CDPR, take your time.

I don't know. Some generic quest types really fit The Witcher. For example kill quests pretty much are Geralt's job. if they do them right, I don't have issues.
