Eye candy: Platige Image’s new Witcher 3 trailer

Platige Image’s new trailer for CD-Projekt RED’s The Witcher 3. (Sign-in to YouTube may be required.)

Platige Image has continued its fruitful relationship with game developer CD-Projekt RED – and with its long-running Witcher series of RPGs – with a satisfyingly downbeat trailer for The Witcher 3.

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.
