Enemies disappear in Witcher 2 almost instantly after being killed and leave only a bag of loot behind. I'm sure that bodies have to be removed in an open world game, how does this happen in Witcher 3?
I haven't played W3, I found disappearing corpses immersion-breaking in W2.

    Not quite sure what you are asking. Bodies also disappear leaving loot bags in Witcher 3.

  • @greg-449 in GTA V, bodies disappear when, quite literally, no one is looking. In PvZ:GW2, they disappear after 3 seconds. In Borderlands 2, they disintegrate, or delete when no one is looking. In the Witcher 3, they disappear when~..? Aug 9, 2016 at 18:08
  • @greg-449 That's what I'm asking, I haven't played Witcher 3.

  • @user598527 you mean technically, as in game programming? I still don't get it, sorry. I didn't downvote this but still think it's not really on topic, or at least not really clear enough. Aug 18, 2016 at 13:09

Bodies do disappear leaving a loot bag.

They don't seem to go when you are looking at them but they do go if you leave the area or a large number builds up during a big fight.

  • The bodies don't instantly disappear as they do in Witcher 2, I haven't even yet seen any corpses going away. Are you sure that a loot back is always left behind even if you leave the area?

  • I'm not sure that a loot bag is always left if you leave the area, I was talking about the bodies in the answer. I generally end up with too much loot so I haven't really checked that.
