The Witcher 2: Assassins Of Kings Official

After early reports on Witcher 2 and a supposedly leaked trailer, Poland-based development studio CD Projekt RED finally makes an official announcement for their RPG sequel. The Witcher 2: Assassins Of Kings features "an incredibly gripping, mature and challenging non-linear plot." The devs have incorporated a new combat system with a greater variety of tactical possibilities. This time around, a completely new technology is being used for the game, which was designed from scratch by CD Projekt RED.

"I am really glad that we can officially present what we've been working on for the past two-and-a-half years," said Adam Kicin'ski, CEO of CD Projekt RED studio. We learned a lot during The Witcher's development process, and we are using all of that knowledge to ensure the sequel is one of the best RPGs people have ever played. We've concentrated on improving the most successful parts of the Witcher, and I strongly believe that The Witcher 2 will be loved both by fans of the original and newcomers. We know that we aimed very high while producing The WItcher 1. Now we are aiming even higher with The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings."

"The company also announced distribution agreements for various territories, Atari Inc. (North America), 1C-SoftClub/Snowball Studios (Russia) and CD Projekt (Poland and Central Europe); negotiations for Western European distribution are in progress. Moreover, CD Projekt RED signed a contract with Agora S.A., which makes Agora the co-producer of the game in Poland. Thanks to this contract, CD Projekt RED will receive financial and promotional support, and the know-how of one of Poland's biggest media corporations," reads the press release.

I'll be looking forward to this one.

i have respect for Witcher albeit i could never bear myself to enjoy it.

the fact it was like yahtzee said "a single player mumorpuger" might have something to do with it and the combat system felt like dance dance revolution.

The combat wasn't too bad. That wasn't my main beef. I could never finish it, because I opted not to use those damn potion thingies too much. Turns out, certain points in the game are nearly impossible to beat without the aid of specific potions. And if you didn't invest into potion skills, you're fucked. Silly me, and I thought I should spend all of my experience on combat techniques. There were some gameplay balance issues if you ask me and that bit with the potions is a good example.

I enjoyed Witcher a lot. Maybe because I used the potions, thought it was a nice feature to make them a part of the core gameplay. After all, they made clear that alchemy is an important part of Witchers and is the sole reason they are superhuman mutants.

Combat also seemed pretty realistic and just plain cool
