The Witcher 3 was downgraded from what was shown in 2013 - Now with PS4 Comparison video

Recommended Posts

It's called optimization.

 

Ubisoft doesn't know shit about optimization though, let's hope CDPR does.

why the double standards ? we are not even talking about ubisoft here, hypocrisy much ?

Seeing as how the entire ambience and effects and general art direction was entirely changed from 2013 to 2015... The fuck is he on about.

2013 looked like Game of Thrones in its mood, which was awesome. 2015 looked like the typical Assassins Creed in-game segue to the next part of your mission. In other words, it looked not that nice for what they promised.

 

I just saw the video and all this.

 

The Witcher 2 actually looks better to me in detail, and how grim and full of life and colour the forests looked.

The Witcher 3 doesn't look as good to me, from what I've seen so far at all. I'm very unimpressed at the moment.

I am of the same opinion.

Witcher 2 looks plain better and more colorful.

There's one benchmark released earlier from a German gaming site. Just use Google Translate.

If this source is real then they don't know shit about optimization either. They just used Ultra settings though so the only hope left is if it scales well when turning down some settings.

Ah it's the 5820K. I'll amend the signature to show that. :)

What I meant was this - Sometimes game devs have to make compromises when it comes to graphics. Usually this means reducing effects/Draw or LOD distance or texture quality. A game will thus look less good.

 

Half the thread, however, is talking about watch dogs. A Game by Ubisoft that also went through optimization. In this case, however, the game looked considerably worse than it originally did and it still ran like crap. Even worse was that some guys released a mod that increased the game's graphics dramatically with minimal performance impact. In the end, W_D was badly optimized, because it still ran bad and looked WAY worse than previously shown. 

 

Oh and by the way How is this hypocrisy/double standards?

 

Let's hope CDPR does

 

There, I put the key word in bold. We don't know yet. We can only assume it has been downgraded slightly by looking at screenshots/video's and we can't comment at all about how well it'll run.

I suspect draw distance being a huge thing in TW3's case, with the huge amount of vegetation. Also, We can probably expect some changes in the day one patch as well. Then again, if they really did run everything at ultra, I don't think the performance is bad at all.

I thought I would come back to this thread and call you all dumb heads. Playing it now I see that it's still an amazingly good looking game, one of the best to date. It's not a lazy console port either. And all of these complaints just make me want to laugh. I really want to know how many people in the world even have the hardware to run this game maxed at 1080p without dropping below 60. Because even with these so called "downgraded graphics" it's not like anyone can run the original game anyway. So what if it was a slight downgrade? You really think having a nice little bench mark to come back to when you get your new gtx 1180 is that important? At this point and time you need two 970's just to max it out above 60fps at 1080p. A aging resolution. I stand by my earlier comments. You are all just whining about nothing.

The one thing I hoped they kept was foliage self-shadows.  These grass and trees look so bland cos they have no shading at all, just a green mush with no 3D depth to them.  Adjust that, and tune the white balance a bit and you'll get 2013 visuals.

Whatever you want to say to downplay the way the game looks.

Downplay?  What?  Did you even read my post?  I love how the game looks, but no self-shadowing makes all foliage look bad.  That's it, what's up your ass this morning?

This thread I guess. The game looks fantastic and I can't even turn on hair works without choking my gpu and dropping below 60, let alone maxing with hair works. I am just saying even with some downgraded graphics from many months ago, it would take a god rig to even max the game now let alone what it could have looked like. So it's like they took away from .0001% of gamers. Seems like an acceptable loss. But I do have to agree the foliage needs better shading.

I wasn't even talking about graphics.  I was mostly talking about white balance which has no performance penalties.  It affects how something looks but isn't strictly "graphics".  Foliage really needs them shadows ):  But I'm indoors now, haven't seen grass in a bit :P

I'm curious, now that the game is out what does everybody think?

 

I have sunk a good 8 hours in to it now and despite things like the grass am very happy with how it looks. Supposedly they are allowing people to edit foliage density in the next patch which fixes my main gripe anyway.

There's a thread on actually discussing the game and not just comparing how many blades of grass were removed from the trailer, you should talk there

and then people wonder why consoles companies "left nvida" and they switched to AMD 

 

 

 

they did it to get away as they can from the green garbage that nvidia gets into their games

 

destroying all the effort (and love) that required to create them

WHY did you have to resurrect this?

Also don't see how that is relevant here (because this is about PCPR downgrading a game, not Nvidia "deliberately crippling" it), and from your name and avatar some are gonna say that you're just biased and want to start a fight.

........... what does an individual company downgrading their game for cross platform parity have to do with Nvidia vs AMD?

Some people just can't stand the thought that their favourite company is as bad as another, so they try (emphasis on try) to make it seem that 'their' company is the best. Which is never the case as they all want 1 thing-money.

Okay clearly youre a fucking moron, so let me tell you what fucking CDPR SAID THEMSELVES!!! "we took the weakest hardware and built the game on there and ported it to the rest of the hardware" AKA THEY MADE IT ON XBOX ONE AND THEN PORTED TO PS4 AND PC. Now you may be too dumb too know what that means so let me tell you.

 

If a game is not made ORIGINALLY FOR PC. IF ITS A PORT, IT MEANS IT WONT RUN WELL AND IT IS NOT OPTIMIZED. THIS GAME WITH ITS LOOKS SHOULD BE RUNNING 80+ FPS WITH THE POWER OF ONE GTX 970 MAXED OUT. BUT ITS A TERRIBLE EFFING PORT THATS WHY IT CANT RUN WELL. If these idiots CDPR optimized correctly and didnt build this game for the xbox one then it wouldve been fine everyone would be 80+fps with a single gtx 970 maxed out. 

 

NEXT TIME DONT OPEN YOUR MOUTH WITHOUT KNOWING HOW THINGS WORK.
