The Witcher 3 Gets New Info on PS4 and PC Pre-Loads, Loot and More; Gets Lovely New Screenshots

on May 2, 2015 5:05 PM

We just entered in the release month of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and the game’s developers are still providing more information on the game and on what we can expect in the next few weeks.

Level Designer Miles Tost mentioned that the time format in the game is bound to the language you select, and cannot be manually changed without changing the language.

He also gave more information on loot, letting us know that it will be a mix between set and random:

Community Manager Chris Priestly also mentioned that a lot more footage and gameplay is coming, and explained why we’re being quite literally flooded with it lately:

“Sorry, there is still plenty more to come, including GOG doing a live Twitch stream next week.

If you do not want to see it, do not watch it. We are appealing not just to hardcore fans, but to casual fans, fans of games similar to Wild Hunt that may not have heard of it and game players in general. The more cool assets, gameplays, videos, screenshots, etc, the better.”

He also explained that a “safe” estimate for pre-loads on the PSN, Steam and GoG.com of one week, even if he’s not 100% sure.

“We are still working with GOG, Steam, Sony, etc on pre-loads and do not have an exact date yet. I think Sid’s estimate of 1 week is safe, but it isn’t a sure thing yet.”

Finally, the developer provided three new screenshots on Facebook, that you can see above and below.
