Platige Image’s new trailer for CD-Projekt RED’s The Witcher 3. (Sign-in to YouTube may be required.)
The Killing Monsters cinematic forgoes the usual environments seen in game trailers (snowcapped mountains, mighty forests) in favour of the winter countryside: grey, muddy, puddly, authentically gritty.
The facial performances are a bit Uncanny, but that aside, the combination of supernatural things happening in a super-natural environment suits the tone of the games rather well, we think.
So far, Platige hasn’t updated its Behance portfolio, but it would be worth checking back there in future: the studio often posts nice breakdown images from its cinematics work.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is due out next year on PC and nex-gen consoles.
