The Witcher 3 launch cinematic A Night to Remember

A Night to Remember will remind you will make the wait for The Witcher 3 release harder than ever

Anymore high quality CGI trailers are put out during a games announcement by publishers to try making gamers hearts race right out of the gate. Holding back the in game engine graphics for another time knowing they’ll never live up to that same quality. It didn’t always used to be like that though, CGI cinematic trailers used to come later to raise excitement higher than it already was. Usually showing up just before a game was ready to launch to push fans right over the edge, today CD Projekt Red took us right back to the old days.

Their latest chapter in the on-going RPG series The Witcher is going to drop early next week. Easily the most anticipated title of the year The Witcher 3 has set the gaming world on fire with its unbelievable size, computer breaking graphics, and story deeper than the Pacific. It seemed like CD Projekt Red couldn’t do anything to get us more excited for The Witcher 3, today they proved us wrong with A Night to Remember. An old school launch cinematic that is equal parts terrifying and glorious.

Taking cinematic visuals to an all new heights, A Night to Remember takes us to moonlit night with a beautiful women wandering an open field by a lake singing a haunting song. Sounds wonderful doesn’t it? It would be if that stunning read headed woman were not actually a horrific shape shifting monster. Geralt has been contacted to kill her and she knows which is why she quickly hold up in a nearby barn turning invisible and moving at insane speed.

Geralt quickly follows gearing up for another fight to the death day at the office. The battle that plays out as soon as he enters is more impressive than any launch cinematic you’ve seen. A Night to Remember truly lives up to what gamers have come to expect of The Witcher series right down to the unflinching nudity and combat. Its hard to imagine any better name for it then a Night to Remember because that is exactly what it shows off.

It was tough to imagine anyway that CD Projekt Red could raise the level f excitement for The Witcher 3 any higher or make the wait for its release any tougher. Yet A Night to Remember has done just that.

Ubisoft is putting everything they have into Star Wars Outlaws, which comes out next month on August 30th for PS5. The fact that the name includes “Star Wars” shouldn’t come as a surprise when you learn that the company is putting a lot of money into marketing the project and thinks it will do very well.

The CEO of Ubisoft, Yves Guillemot, made the bold claim during the company’s recent earnings call Q&A (thanks, MP1st), though some investors thought it was even more daring than they thought. Based on Ubisoft’s guidance, Nick Dempsey of Barclays came up with a rough estimate of five million units sold and asked if the company was being too cautious. This is what Guillemot said:

“What we expect is for Star Wars Outlaws to have a strong launch.” One reason is that it’s one of the most anticipated games of the year, which shows how positively the community feels about it. Another is that we’re launching the biggest marketing campaign Ubisoft has ever done for a game.

We’d like to know how much Ubisoft spent to market this and what the company expects to get back from it. We had some small worries when we played the game in person at Summer Game Fest, but we’ll keep an eye on things before and after launch.

Are you excited about how soon Star Wars Outlaws will be out? Do you think the game’s supposedly huge marketing budget has an impact on your life? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Critics and fans alike went crazy for Amazon’s take on the famous role-playing game series Fallout. There were a lot of nominations for 16 Emmy awards, including Best Actor and Outstanding Drama Series. The show was able to reach audiences outside of gamers and got a lot of attention from the industry.

Eurogamer has been keeping track, and now that all the votes are in, Fallout is tied for fifth place with 23 nominations for the 76th Emmy Awards, which are put on by the US Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. With 25, The Bear has the most nominations, followed by True Detective: Night Country with 23, and Shogun with 19.

It shouldn’t be a surprise that Walton Goggins is up for Best Actor for his performance as The Ghoul. Although games will always be our first choice, it’s great that adaptations of games don’t have to be awful, and we can’t wait for the next season of the shows.

Are you surprised by how well Amazon’s version of Fallout has done in the mainstream? Is the curse of movies based on video games finally over? Leave a comment below and let us know.
