If you're waiting for a game that perfectly defines the term "next-gen," this might be it.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt should look incredible when it launches for next-gen consoles and PC. More evidence of that beauty can be found in a newly published video, in which the developers talk about their ambitions and inspirations behind the game's hugely expansive world.
These are amazingly detailed locales, and the protagonist – Geralt – can explore them all on the back of a horse. It seems like the designers created just about every possible area they could imagine, from creepy forests to sweeping plains to quaint little towns and villages. This is easily one of the most atmospheric games we've ever seen and if the gameplay matches up, we'll proclaim this title an automatic GotY contender for 2015.
The Witcher 3 is scheduled to release in February.
