Germany’s popular gaming magazine GameStar has shared some new details about the awaited Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. One of the members of their team was given a chance to play the game for two days without any limits. Meaning the whole game was at his disposal, however, he only managed to reach level 7.

GameStar played the PC version of the title and according to them, they used Intel i7-4790, 16GB RAM with a Geforce GTX 980. The good news here is that the journalist has nothing but praise for the game: “My two days with Geralt were one of the most beautiful, most exciting and overwhelming experiences I have experienced in my 33 years gaming life”

In The Witcher 3, there are four difficulty options – easy, normal, hard and dark. Cranking up the difficulty will allow you to face tougher monsters and challenges. After you are done with a monster contract, you can bargain your reward via minigames.

Potions are necessary for higher levels of difficulty. You can craft potions once and then refill if you have enough alcohol at your disposal. Positions can be upgraded to make them more effect but using too much will spike your toxicity level.

Novigrad and No Man’s Land are part of a single map, while The isles of Skellige cover the outer part of The Witcher’s world. There some other locations including Kaer Morhen.

Novigrad and Oxenfurt are the biggest cities in the game and both are full of life. On the other hand No Man’s Land contains 25 smaller towns. Extra storage space is available if you craft saddle bags for the horse.

On a technical level, the game ran at a smooth 60Fps and 1080p. HUD is customizable, doors will open automatically, day-one patch is coming and most of all, Geralt’s beard will grow with time.Lasty, journalist was also impressed by the weather system.

It’s getting harder and harder to wait for The Witcher 3 but we’ll have to be patient till May 19.
