Theese 35-minutes of footage from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt resemble the demo shown behind-closed-doors at E3 in June. The presentation focuses on some of the morally ambiguous choices in the game, including one involving an orphanage. Hope you're ready to feel sad. The Witcher 3 is a graphics showpiece, one of the most impressive looking games of the current generation of consoles and PC hardware. It's scheduled for release on February 24, 2015.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will feature a new game within its game, the competitive card game known as Gwent, developer CD Projekt Red announced today. Gwent is also getting a physical release, courtesy of the Xbox One collector's edition. CD Projekt Red describes Gwent as a fast-paced combat card game that has more than 150 unique playing cards, four factions, hero cards, spell cards and more. Gwent is "a game of initial simplicity and ultimate depth, something beloved by both road-weary travelers during long nights around the campfire and elegant nobles looking to liven up dragging dinner parties," the developer says. The Witcher fans can play Gwent in-game and in the real world, if they buy the Xbox One collector's edition of The Witcher 3. That version has been bolstered with a...

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt developer CD Projekt Red dropped some gameplay footage of the title during Gamescom 2014 this week, and the action role-playing game appears to be shaping up nicely. Geralt talks to a resident of Downwarren, who tells him that villagers have been disappearing. The cause is unknown, but it appears to originate in the Whispering Hillock. "The war awoke an ancient power. An evil one that feeds on bloodshed. Nightmares haunt our nights and days," the individual explains. Geralt deals with a few enemies as he makes his way to the Whispering Hillock, where he encounters a powerful werewolf and some regular wolves. That's where the clip ends, leaving the mystery of the villagers' disappearance unsolved. For that, we'll have to wait until Feb. 24, 2015, when The...

CD Projekt RED put on a panel at San Diego Comic-Con earlier this month to show off its upcoming game, The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt, to the public for the first time. It didn't go quite as planned. The developer's computers were apparently damaged on the flight to San Diego; when the team loaded up gameplay, they found that none of the game's voiceovers worked. In the video above, Doug Cockle — the voice of Witcher protagonist Geralt of Rivia — comes to the rescue at the behest of the developer: "Doug! Doug! Can you just freestyle it?" Check out the video above to see Cockle improvise a few of his own lines and deliver a live, impromptu performance. According to the video's description, the clip only features outtakes from the presentation. Gameplay videos will go online next week. Y...

A Google Drive account of a developer working on CD Projekt Red's upcoming action role-playing game The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was hacked resulting in the leak of spoiler-heavy documents and assets being distributed across Reddit, 4chan and other forums. CD Projekt Red confirmed the leak to Eurogamer and advised against The Witcher fans of accessing the content.

But seeing a game at E3 is no guarantee that you'll find it on retail shelves or in digital marketplaces the same year. Or, in some cases, the next. As games get bigger, development timelines get longer, and some games make more than one appearance at E3. Here are the games we've seen before, set to return to on stages and booths this week in Los Angeles. BAYONETTA 2 Bayonetta 2 has been around and unreleased for almost two years years. First revealed in September 2012, we learned last year at E3 that the Wii U exclusive is scheduled for a 2014 release with a two-player mode. We also went hands-on with the game at a pre-E3 event last year, so be sure to check out our impressions of Bayonetta 2, which is headed to Japan this summer. BELOW Microsoft and Capybara Games revealed...
