As a non-PC\pro-console gamer, I’ve never had a chance to explore the world that Geralt of Rivia occupies. The engrossing story, mature content and sword slashing action has been appealing to me for longer than I can remember. When CD Projekt RED announced they would be bringing over the The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings to my beloved Xbox 360, I became a tad excited.
For those not familiar with the premise behind The Witcher, it follows the adventures of Geralt of Rivia, a unique brand of monster hunter. Possessed with innate magical skills, Geralt hires himself out to anybody with a scary problem and sacks full of coin. Not quite human, not quite mage, Geralt lives within and outside many worlds. His life is full of moral choices, beautiful lasses and big shiny swords. Its been a well received game for the mouse and keyboard set but how does it translate to the land of controllers?
No way can I get into this review without first diving into the graphics. CDPR busted their collective humps to make The Witcher’s visuals pop for its Xbox outing. The world is alive during all hours of the day and it shows. Everything is crisp and clear, once the engine catches up with it all. There were times the game looked more like a first gen game than the powerhouse it is. I’m not knocking the game for it because plenty of AAA titles have the same problem, even when installed to the hard drive. But once they do kick in, prepare to be wowed. If you liked the look of Skyrim, you will love what you see in the Witcher.
New Witcher 2 Enhanced Edition teaser knifes your eyes!

One less thing for PC fans to hold over console owners is the exclusive Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings because it is soon landing on the Xbox 360! CD Projekt RED is working hard to make this more than just a mere port. Besides maximizing the graphics, the developer is also adding another 3 hours of gameplay and content to the already stellar game. That’s on top of the award winning multiple storylines, alternate endings and excellent gameplay the series is famous for.
The Enhanced Edition will hit the Xbox 360 and PCs on April 17th. Fans looking for the ultimate version should pick up the Dark Edition which packs in too much Witcher awesomeness for any mere regular box to hold! I can’t wait to get my hands on this bad boy! As a die-hard console jockey, I haven’t had the chance to jump into Geralt’s shoes. What better way to do it than with this? By the time it pops out, I should have done a couple runs through Mass Effect 3. One RPG rolling right into the next – nirvana.
Go ahead and hit the jump to witness the new teaser. Feast upon it’s glory!
