The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Footage On Conan Was Not Running On Xbox One, No Flying Mounts And More
CD Projekt RED clarifies footage shown in Conan O’ Brien’s review.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is nearly upon us and if you’ve been paying attention to Conan O’ Brien, the man himself had a chance to review the game. Interestingly, the Xbox One copy was showcased in the intro of the video, leading many to believe that the gameplay footage was from the X1 version.
Senior Games Designer at CD Projekt RED Damien Monnier clarified on Twitter that the footage was, “PC but an old build (this was recorded a while ago).” No, we don’t get it either but that’s what it was.
Some other details for The Witcher 3 have been revealed, including whether there would be a flying mount of some sort. Community and website coordinator Marcin Momot stated that, “No flying. Sorry.” Level designer Miles Tost also dispelled any notion as to the Xbox One version not looking as good as the other versions. “No, of course not. It looks and runs as great as the other platforms do.”
By the way, that ability that Ciri showcased in the Rage and Steel trailer? CD Projekt RED’s Michal Janczewski says on the forums that, “Yes, it’s one of her skills,” indicating that players will be able to use it.
Thoughts on all this? Let us know in the comments. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is out on May 19th for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
