The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt has been released 10 days early in the United Arab States, this version doesn't include the Day 1 patch which may lead to instability issues or bugs but as of yet no such things have been reported. This news comes from CDProjectRed Forum's coolio33 who posted pictures (shown above) of the game case. Additionally the first batch of retail PC versions serial codes aren't yet working according to other users.

In 2014's March both Titanfall and Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes released almost 20 days earlier in the UAE than their respected release dates in other territories.

[QUOTE="KungMartin90, post: 6444211]Wow, extremely beautiful game. I'm sold.

Kinda funny that some arab dude got ahold of the game way ahead of time.[/QUOTE]

At this point I'm sure more than just one Arab dude has got ahold of it considering its out in retail. Personally if I was in the UAE, I'd be drifting my Lamborghini in the desert not playing TW3, but hey, that's just me.

Heard about this, even Twitch are warning people not to stream any gameplay early!

Can't wait to play it though, look beautiful in all the gameplay video's I have seen!

I'll be reading and watching for the negative things about the game. I hate when sites skip over the bullshit just because of the overall package. It's the small nagging things that can fuck a game up for me.

The most hyped game of the year gets 9's and 10's. Shocking. lol

Something about the world makes me want to explore it. I see the distant towns and mountains and feel a yearn to race to them, and travel into the caves and ruins to discover what's inside. This game is a combination of Red Dead Redemption and Skyrim. Though unlike Skyrim Witcher 3 is actually polished and takes its story, characters, and gameplay seriously as an RPG.

I think the biggest improvement is how much smoother the combat looks. Even Witcher 2 with the combat betterment mod was still a bit awkward at times.

Angry Joe will tell it how it is.

There are other reviews popping up from lesser known review sites/youtubers you can check out.

Here is Dtoid saying how they weren't as impressed with the combat.

edit:
Actually, from what little trend I've been able to establish thus far. The larger review sites seem pleased. The lesser known ones appear to pick on combat a bit.

Metacritic is a joke. Metacritic scores are just ammo for fanboys use on each other. Anyway I'm hearing that the Ps4 version has framerate issues while the Xbone version runs fine. Maybe the Ps4 version should have been 900p as well. I'll wait for them to patch the game before I buy it.

CDPR announced a day1 patch for ps4 that is supposed to address the framerate. Guess we'll have to see if it does.

I think I'll be waiting for a price cut or picking it up used later down the line. I'm fine with most things outside of the framerate issues(which hopefully will be fixed) and the combat. What I'm reading about the combat is enough to make me very frustrated considering the amount of time I plan on playing this game.

This seems to be good news. Ive been excited to finally play a Witcher game since i never had a PC that was capable of running it, and i dont game on PC unless its something from addictinggames or something.

Glad another great game released, can't say when I am going to get this thanks to my backlog but the enviroment is sexy enough for me to buy this game. I never pleased previous Witcher's combat mechanics , I guess this one also has it's own share but not caring much atm.
