There is a lot of excitement among video gamers about the upcoming release of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

But how will that game look on your PS4 console? And what will gameplay be like?

Fortunately, PlayStation Access recorded a video with five minutes of gameplay of the game on the PS4 to give you a first look at CD Projekt Red's new open-world RPG.

One of the first things mentioned is that game developer has promised that you won't need knowledge obtained from playing the previous two games going into The Witcher 3: the new game will explain events that lead up to it in a way that players new to the franchise can understand.

In the video, one of the players hasn't played the previous games and seems to pick up on gameplay easily enough, so that's always good news to those players who aren't familiar with the previous titles in the series.

These two players also point that sheer size of the game: about 30 times larger than The Witcher 2 and 20 percent bigger than massive game The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim.

The Witcher 3 is the final chapter of the story of Geralt of Rivia, a witcher now on a new and personal mission. During that mission, a strange army known as the Wild Hunt is taking over the world, leaving blood in its wake. Of course, only Geralt can stop it.

The video features some horse riding, as well as combat, which isn't typical slow turn-based RPG type combat, but real-time fast combat using both swords and magic.

"It looks more Game of Thrones than Lord of the Rings," comments Rob, one of the players in the video. "Like quite gritty and violent."

Another video, released by CD Projekt Red shows off some of the monsters in the world of The Witcher 3, accompanied by discussion about those creatures by the developers who created them.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt comes out in stores and online May 19 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
