Some of the exclusive features have been leaked for the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the multiplatform video game, "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt." According to a report from Dual Shockers on June 22, design documents from CD Projekt Red has been leaked online. The files revealed some of the elements that are being planned for the console iterations of the open-world action role-playing game.

The Xbox One version is expected to use the Kinect camera for voice command. However, Microsoft recently removed mandatory support for the accessory as it is no longer bundled with the next-generation systems. As a result, the console could be dropped to $399.99 in order to better compete against the PS4. Furthermore, additional resources can now be used on the Xbox One to improved visuals.

Another leaked feature of "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt" on the Xbox One is the use of Smart Glass. The video game is apparently using a commentary mode on the second screen experience. As a result, players may be able to hear certain members of the development team talk about a particular element in the video game. More details should be revealed on both Xbox One exclusive features in the coming months.

For the PS4, CD Projekt Red is expected to use the Dual Shock 4's lighting is some way. One possibility is an indicator showing the amount of remaining health. The controller's light could turn from green to red to alert the player. All versions should also take advantage of several social media elements as well although nothing specific was disclosed.

The new "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt" release date has been set to Feb. 24 after the software product ended up being delayed. In North America, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is responsible for the distribution of the open-world action role-playing game on the PS4 and Xbox One consoles as well as the PC platform.
