The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is one of the most highly-anticipated games of the generation, and even its release date delays can't cool the hype considering how great it looks.

CD Projekt Red's title was shown off during an Nvidia conference to demo the technology company's Grid streaming service, providing us with nearly three minutes of live gameplay. The video, below, isn't the highest quality, but the game is being streamed over Grid and not even running at full graphical settings.

For Grid's part, there is little to no lag, which is good to see. But gamers are likely more concerned with the game itself in this instace, and The Witcher 3 continues to look great, as it has every time we've seen it. There's a lot of focus on the graphics to start (despite not even being put on full settings), as the presenters admire the real time lighting and shadows.

Things turn to a gameplay focus as Geralt comes across some enemies, and the combat system seems even more fluid than that in The Witcher 2. There's also a random encounter with an enemy in the woods, which leads to an amusing quip from the presenter when the character lets out a curse upon seeing Geralt.

I can't wait to see how big and detailed the full world of The Witcher 3 is--we've seen segments of it and have been told it's large, but there's nothing like experiencing it for yourself. Hopefully those delays for extra polish are worth the wait.
