The Witcher 2 Pre-Orders Surpass 100k

Be ready on May 17, because that's the day you'll be able to purchase the sequel to The Witcher (you know, it's the game I've "subtly" been ranting about for the past month). The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings is gonna offer all new dialogue, an updated graphics engine, realistic-looking environments, revamped day/night cycle, "actions that affect AI behavior, more dynamic/spectacular/bloody finishing moves and more."

Word from the folks at CD Projekt RED is that: "As the final days count down toward the international release date for The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, pre-orders for the RPG are rapidly counting up. CD Projekt RED announced today that as of the start of business this morning, the total was 111,842 units, of which approximately 40 percent are for the Digital Premium Edition. The entire 9,999-unit Polish Collector's Edition has been pre-ordered, and availability of the limited edition versions is also dwindling rapidly in other territories. With interest in the game continuing to spike upward, the final number is certain to be substantially higher."

It also seems that The Witcher's official web site is about to get an update, so make sure you stop by later today.

I haven't been following the game very closely because I wanted to avoid spoilers of any kind, so I don't know what to expect gameplay-wise. I really hope it hasn't been "streamlined" la what Bethesda and Bioware have been doing in their infinite wisdom lately.

In the best case scenario, The Witcher 2 will become a shining example of what everyone (who hates the new breed of cinematic RPG/crap) has been praying for. A game with lots of options in every area and a living world filled with plausible characters. The Witcher had all of those, but in a slightly rough form. Let's see if CDProjekt improved things by repairing, or adding to them, as opposed to removing them altogether, like their capitalist colleagues who've all succumbed to consolitis.

Was the polish collector's edition the one with the gay head? or was that the american collector's edition?
