New Witcher 3 gameplay from GDC has been released showcasing the game on not even the highest settings. The video is developer led and early on CD Project Red’s Damien Monnier stated “It’s not even on the highest setting. We’re saving this for when you buy the game – we want you to get a bit of a slap across the face.”

A slap in the face indeed judging by the video which looks absolutely stunning. The vistas and lighting look incredible and if you weren’t already excited for this game you really should be now.

The game was most likely running on PC in the video so it is not clear how close this example is to what it will look like on consoles.

The Witcher 3 is set for release on May 19th 2015 on PC, Xbox One & PS4
