The Witcher 2 Enhanced Edition

The Witcher 2: Assassin's of Kings has been on it's way to Xbox 360 for quite a long time and that wait is finally about to end. This dark, exciting, challenging and gorgeous RPG will be coming out on Xbox 360 on April 17th. It is coming as an Enhanced Edition. The PC version has been out for almost a year and has received several large updates onto it, like a new tutorial system, a new arena, a new difficulty mode, new equipment and plenty of fixes, so all of that is naturally coming over to the Xbox 360 version, plus it will contain a new area, new equipment and new quests that have not existed on any version previously. I reviewed the PC version here and if you are a fan of RPG's you have absolutely no reason not to try the Witcher now that it's on console and PC. The PC version is often on sale and already down to a regular price of $40. CD Projekt Red is by far one of the best developers out of there, not only are they good at what they do, but they are also very focused on providing continuous customer support. They are one of the few companies that would unleash huge free updates and refuse to do any paid DLC. Enough of all that though, the main reason I am making yet another post about The Witcher 2 is to highlight it's newest videos.

The first video is a story they created using all in-game assets and the engine in order to give you a general idea of who Geralt of Rivia, The Witcher, is and what his life is about. It's an interesting and impressive video, but doesn't reveal much about the game, just purely about his character. On the other hand the second video is a developer video showing and describing how the story was made, specifically talking about how it is designed for multiple playthroughs. If you have never played the Witcher 2 and have an Xbox 360 I highly recommend it, great company, great RPG and a great product. Check out the main website for more, but thanks for checking it out and I hope Xbox 360 gamers take to it like PC gamers have.

*I must warn that both of these videos are pretty violent.
