Apparently the issue here is with people streaming the game (which is why Twitch made their statement) and spoilers being posted. Since it's an RPG, the latter would be a big deal (though spoilers are easy to avoid if you were so inclined).

In my case, I've had it pre-ordered since last year so I will be downloading it on release day.

If people want to watch the stream and be spoiled, that's on them. Who fucking cares? I don't see how that's any different now, before release date, than it is watching a stream after an arbitrary release date. I think it's a case of the publisher being butthurt for not having complete and utter control. They need to be happy with making a good product, and then just let it go.

Maybe it needs a massive day 1 patch?

That's what I figure - but that's just shitty industry practice that's completely on them; put out an incomplete product, patch later.

I don't think it is as much a patch as it is being a stickler for a specific "release" date. As a matter of fact, this is the first time that I have even heard the possibility of a day one patch, much less a large one.

Re: The Witcher 3 - May 19, 2015 - PS4, XBO, PC

This game was delayed for months in order to avoid the need for any day one patches. I can't speak as to the Twitch stream restrictions but the retail restrictions make sense. All retailers are meant to have the game available on the same day (unless they work out a deal for an "exclusive" early window). This is the reason why stores like Walmart and Kmart have paid fines in the past for units of games/movies sold before release date.

Oh and I doubt it's CD Projekt Red being "butthurt for not having complete and utter control". This is a company that refuses to add DRM to their games, even though they are aware of their games being pirated. They feel restrictions only hurt the users who actually purchase their games.

This is one of the best role-playing games ever crafted, a titan among giants and the standard-setter for all such games going forward. Where the Witcher 2 sputtered to a halt, The Witcher 3 is always in a crescendo, crafting battle scenarios that constantly one-up the last, until you reach the explosive finale and recover in the glow of the game's quiet denouement. But while the grand clashes are captivating, it is the moments between conflicts, when you drink with the local clans and bask in a trobairitz's song, that are truly inspiring.

this wasn't really on my radar, but it might be now that these reviews are rolling in. something to play for a month or two until batman comes out.

Awesome reviews. Nice that (and I mean it sucks, lol) that they show us now when release day is still a week away.

By the way, for those that pre-ordered the game on PC, you can already download it. That way you can play it on release date without having to download it then.

I still have to pre-order this. I think I have some GameStop credit to burn anyway.

Re: The Witcher 3 - May 19, 2015 - PS4, XBO, PC

The entire music score is also available to download for whomever pre-ordered the game on PC. Listening to it right now and it's great. The only track I'm not too fond of is "Eredin, King of the Hunt". Early on it borrows cues from Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard's score to The Dark Knight. It does become its own thing but the track is over by the time that happens.
