Level designer Miles Tost for CD Projekt RED's The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt gave a world-building tech demonstration, where he showcased their methods to populate such a vast world without melting PCs.
He also reiterated that CD Projekt RED is still deathly allergic to DRM and will have The Witcher 3 on sale through GOG.com "from day one." It's more harmful than good for industry.
The gains in sales from using DRM is drowned out by the harm caused to legitimate customers, feels the studio. Pirated copies don't have DRM after all, so only customers are punished.
"You’ll be able to purchase The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for PC on GOG.com from day one. We believe that DRM does more harm to legit gamers than good for the gaming industry, that’s why the game will also be completely DRM-free," said Tosh.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt releases on PC, Xbox One and PS4 in February 2015this year.
