The Witcher 3 Player gives NPCs a realistic overhaul. They are kinda breath-taking
Recently, AI has become a popular tool for players to transform faces from video games into more real-life images. This allows gamers to get a better idea of how the game would look if it were set in real life. It’s quite amazing, actually. Now someone has used the technology to show us what it would be like if The Witcher 3’s PCs were real.
Gutekx12, a user on Reddit has posted photos of The Witcher3 cast. He also shows what their faces look like after the AI molds them into more realistic proportions. Wow. To help Netflix find the best portrayals, someone should contact Netflix.
These images are amazing. It’s amazing how the before-and-after shot transforms it from an NPC into someone you can easily see walking down the street. Commenters from Europe think that they look like Slavic people, which is a bonus. Take a look at these images.
The magic doesn’t stop at The Witcher 3. Recent examples of other players using the same type of AI to translate NPCs from Dark Souls into real-world situations have been shown. You can view all these masterpieces here, and decide which set you like best. It’s a toss-up for me. The Dark Souls PCs look less, well dead, but The Witcher’s models look like they might eventually be in The Witcher4.
After the hack, ‘The Witcher 3’ Source Code is being auctioned online
CD Project RED was hacked. According to the ransom note, the company announced that hackers had hacked their files, including Cyberpunk2077, Wild Hunt, and the card game Go. CDPR has not seen any evidence that personal data has been stolen. This is a small silver lining.
CD Projekt refused to negotiate with ransomers. So, as the note states, ransomers are selling data. According to Tom’s Hardware, the Witcher3’s code was put up for sale. VX Underground has images of Gwent‘s source code that has allegedly been leaked. The Witcher 3, Cyberpunk2077’s code were up for auction on Exploit Forums.
It was initially believed that ransomers started the bidding at $1,000 USD. However, this is incorrect. The starting price was actually $1 million. Another Twitter account (DrFurfagMD), claims that ransomers were sold instantly for $7 million USD.
CD Projekt’s initial response to the ransom threats stated that they were working closely with authorities to find out who was behind it. It is safe to assume that the person selling the source code was doing so in the most remote parts of the internet. This is far from the prying eyes of the rest of the world.
CD Projekt has backups of every code that was stolen. So who knows what someone might do with the stolen source code. It’s especially concerning when they paid millions for it. We hope the authorities catch those responsible for these illegal acts, regardless of how strongly someone dislikes Cyberpunk2077 and CD Projekt.
