Check out five minutes of The Witcher 3 on PS4

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt seems designed to push the limits of even the beefiest gaming rig, but the console versions are no slouch, according to this PlayStation 4 gameplay video from PlayStation Access.

Nearly five minutes long, the clip shows off Geralt riding around the world on horseback at different times of day, along with some combat in the forest. Note the embers resulting from Geralt's flame spell, an impressive visual effect; the fiery pink sky at sunset; and the way Geralt's horse splashes through shallow water.

Last year, The Witcher 3 developer CD Projekt Red said that bringing the game to PS4 and Xbox One means the studio can "go nuts" with the graphics on all three platforms. The Witcher 3 will be released May 19 on PS4, Windows PC and Xbox One. For more, check out our recent interview with CD Projekt Red.
