The Witcher 3 developer CD Projekt RED invited a number of YouTubers to check out its upcoming RPG, with glorious results.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is only a few weeks away and anticipation is pretty high, so there’s a lot of envy out there for those YouTubers who were given the chance to go hands on at a recent preview event.

There are loads of videos doing the rounds showing off what the lucky few saw, so you should definitely do a few searches if you’re keen, but here’s one from ImAnderZEL. I picked this one because you can watch it in 1080p at 60fps if you are using Chrome, and it shows off Ultra settings.

It’s not bad at all, is it? The PC used to run it for this capture had a single GTX 980, and this is an unoptimised beta build, so now I’m really looking forward to seeing how the final version looks on a powerful rig.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt hits PC, PS4 and Xbox One on May 19. I’ve seen an even older build running on PS4 and it was also gloriously lovely, by the way; don’t stress out about which version you’re getting unless you’re a hardcore graphics fanatic.
