Every 30 minutes we will be presenting gameplay from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in a special cinema located in our booth (Hall 7.1, Aisle B, No. 32), so when you come by make sure to head in there as well to see Wild Hunt gameplay on the big screen!
Second - the on-site activities from last year are back! Everyone who visits our booth and sees the demo (Hall 7.1, Aisle B, No. 32) this year will have a chance to receive a Witcher t-shirt. That’s not all though, as we are planning to hand out plenty of other Witcher goodies to the community members who drop by and participate in our competitions & contests.
If you are trying to get your hands on some Witcher swag, the easiest way to do it will be to participate in the #WitcherSelfie. While visiting our booth in the public area (Hall 7.1, Aisle B, No. 32) just take a quick selfie with an element of our booth included--whether it’s a game logo, a part of our booth design or a member of the RED team--and share it via social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+, etc.) adding the #WitcherSelfie hashtag.
Each day between 5 and 6 p.m. you can come and show us your #WitcherSelfie post. The coolest ones will be awarded random Witcher swag (while supplies last). Check the detailed times for each day below:
Thursday, August 14, 2014 5:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m.
We will also set aside some special swag for those of you who come dressed as characters from our games, so if you were on the fence whether to don your white wig and silver sword - do it!
Finally, we have some great news for the folks who won’t be able to make it to Germany. Starting next week we will be revealing that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt gameplay footage all of you have been asking about, so be sure to keep your eyes glued to our website and social media as there will be a lot of treats in store for them.
See you in Cologne!

Just no Madonna playing in the background, ok Marcin?
No Madonna this time, but we were listening to some other classic while recording this. Check out the short behind-the-scenes video (https://vine.co/v/MVZDa6vg5FK) I posted on my Vine back then;)

It's funny, now all of us are going to save the tree spirit and watch as the whole swamp village is burned down when we come back to it later in the game
Well I don't think this quest is as simple as it looks, he didn't exaust all the dialogue and Geralt didn't talk to the orpahsn or the villagers or search the orphanage for clues.

You had to submit the selfies at their booth during Gamescom.
But for anyone not attending GC, there was a papercraft contest (it ended on August 10th) and of course the cosplay contest (http://forums.cdprojektred.com/threads/31071-Get-creative-in-The-Witcher-Cosplay-Competition!).
Talking about cosplay, Shappi catched a cold at GC which probably isn't entirely unrelated to Saskia's armor design ;P
I sent her a friendly Wroć prędko do zdrowia (get well soon). Here's the response:
And to stay on topic:
Did any of you enter one of the contests ?
I PARTICIPATED in the papercraft contest, and have high hopes of getting smthg... :)
Dont have time for the cosplay though... Im completely overworked right now... to the point that I havent been able to even try tne Witcher adv game beta...:P
BTW, for the looks of it, the gameplay video couldnt be better, though I stopped watching after entering in the hut and listening to the old hag channel the "beauties"... STILL Saving miself for the game...:P
You didn't even see Johny mock Geralt for being dense... didn't learn the truth about any of the character's motivations, fears, worries...
This is *perfect* for the gameplay demonstration, (combined with the *slight* variations previously seen), as it leaves these more interesting paths available for exploration by the player.

Same here. I'll probably kill them and hopefully get the needed info from Gran.
Aye, I second that. I my humble opinion a greater evil than that forest spirit or whatever it was was allowed to continue. What did the speaker mean when he said that the tree spirit looks very untrustworthy? It looks gross sure, but by going by that logic Geralt would have chopped Nivellen's head off before learning his story in A grain of truth. This is not the Geralt I know, or should I say, this is not my vision of Geralt. Seeing those hags... what? Did they look trustworthy then? Pushing old Granny around, calling Johnny a vile creature. And what's that about orphans? Seeing how many ears they had collected, and the alderman's comment that he who wants to survive must seek his own protection. To me it's clear what kind of protection that was. 'Suffer a little but survive' kind of protection. There's a deeper mystery here, and I'm a little frustrated that I'm not allowed to see a demonstration where Geralt asks all inquisitive questions as to ascertain the true evil in Velen.
Frustrated yes, but upset? Hell no, I loved it! By seeing this gameplay I have boarded the hype train once more! It's good to see the devs still got the touch, not that my faith in them ever faltered. This chapter is exactly the lesser evil conundrum that Sapkowski introduced. The thing is, I might even be wrong, and what we saw in the gameplay is the most 'good' of choices? Well...no...not even I could convince myself there. ^_^ Oh, I'm excited to kick some hag arses! Six months can't come soon enough!
So thank you devs! :respect: Really! You've done a great job! :thumbsup:
I begin to hate their... poor Ciri!!!
