The Witcher 2: Enhanced Edition Coming to PC Same Day as Xbox 360 Version
PC gamers, don’t let consolephobia keep you from playing one of the greatest games of last year!
CD Projekt RED will be releasing The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings in delicious Enhanced Edition form on April 17th, adding new locations, characters, animations, story arcs, and cutscenes to the already massive game. Those already with a copy of the game will be pleased to know that all this new content will be made FREE to them. Following in the footsteps of its predecessor, regardless of the method of purchase, all this content will be available through the launcher at no charge, assuming the game is purchased before the Enhanced release. Suck on that, DLC!
For those already engulfed in Geralt of Rivia’s world, here are the specifics to the new content, courtesy of CD Projekt RED sister company Good Old Games:
New major adventures set in new locations. These consist of an underground system of chambers beneath Loc Muine and a temperate coniferous forest in the Loc Muine mountains, and a secret cave passage. These new adventures will add several hours of story-based gameplay to the game.
New major characters to the Witcher story. One of them is Brigida Papebrock Dame. This noble woman comes from the Temerian family Papebrock and is a 30 year old lady-in-waiting of the Temerian court. The other characters are secret–for now!
All new animations and cut scenes, including a new, three and a half minute pre-rendered cinematic depicting the assassination of King Demavend of Aedirn. BAFTA Award winner and Academy Award nominee Tomasz Baginski brings this key historical event to life, setting the stage for the story told in The Witcher 2.
The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition hits shelves on April 17th for Xbox 360 and PC.
