CD Projekt Red has released live footage of The Withcer III: The Wild Hunt--taken from the company's global hands-on event. The gaming company allowed journalists and enthusiasts from all over the world demo the title.

And it looks like the game's delay to May 19 will be worth it: It looks phenomenal.

"Recently journalists from all over the world had a chance to play The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for the very first time during global hands-on event," CD Projekt Red wrote on The Witcher's official Facebook page.

"The preview articles will go live next week, but in the meantime here's a quick sneak peek of what to expect."

The clips are brief, but we see Geralt fighting a winged beast, riding on a horse across a rural landscape, and talking to a noble-looking man in a brief cinematic.

The Wild Hunt is perhaps the most anticipated game of 2015.

Gamespot listed it as such with a group of other premier titles set to launch this year, including: Rise of the Tomb Raider, Batman: Arkham Knight, Bloodborne, Mighty No. 9, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and Evolve.

Game Informer put the game at number one on a list of the magazine's top ten most anticipated games of 2015. Needless to say, the hype has been on, and this recent event amplifies it.

The Witcher III: The Wild Hunt launches on May 19 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam PC. For more about the title, visit its official website here.
