Yeah I read the details but I still think character swapping sums it up and unfortunately I still don't see the value it adds to the experience.  As I said just seems un-witcher like to me, but 100% agree we won't know till we play it, but like anything great it requires balance you don't make a great game by shoving in every feature under the sun, with these delays im just slightly questioning if they've gone down that route a bit - hopefully not.

That being said, how exactly would swapping be "un-witcher like"? They have already said this will be the last Witcher game centered on Geralt, but not the last Witcher game, Ciri was trained by Geralt and is being hunted by the Wild Hunt, so it will fit into the game very well.

 

It would be unwitcher like in the sense of you are playing geralt why swapping around all of a sudden.  Would be like throwing the signs out and just giving him a wand...unwitcher like.

 

However someone just mentioned the Witcher 2 had instances where you character swapped, I can't for the life of me remember that but I guess I stand corrected in general.

Yeah there were a few brief sections in TW2 where you character swapped, one where you play as king hensalt or or prince demevend for example.

Yup, during the second chapter, but those were like 2-3 subquests only.

Last trailer (Dec 5) looks very bad, compared to other trailers graphics wise. Was there any response to this from CDPR?

Apparently this is the most in-depth hands-on (haven't read yet).

Witcher 3 Dev Confirms Install Size is 50GB on PS4 and Xbox One

 

The Witcher 3 will require around 50GB of install space on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, its developer has confirmed to GameSpot.

 
CDProjekt RED, the Warsaw based studio currently finishing work on the highly anticipated action-RPG, could not provide exact details on install sizes at this juncture. But, following a purportedly leaked PSN listing, the studio has confirmed that 50GB is the ballpark figure.
 
Minimum and recommended PC specs for the Witcher 3, which were released in January, had already suggested that about 40GB of hard drive space was necessary to install the game.
 
Fifty gigabytes of required space makes The Witcher 3 one of the biggest next-gen console games yet, though it's not uncommon for certain Xbox One and PS4 games to carrry similar storage requirements. NBA 2K14 and Assassin's Creed Unity both require more than 40GB of space.
 
The sheer scale of The Witcher 3 has already become a talking point for its developer. The game's world is apparently about 35 times the size of its predecessor, and about 20 percent bigger than the vast world of Skyrim. It will also render at 1080p on PlayStation 4 (and at a visually similar 900p on Xbox One).
 
The Witcher 3 release date is May 19 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Sounds great, but as Jim Sterling said in his RE Remake video a bigger map size isn't always better.
