That’s what I muttered upon seeing this gorgeous, gripping CGI trailer from CDProjekt
. And I said it a lot!
You will too. It’d be impossible not to. It weaves its own wee tale and sets up the game’s overarching plot all without uttering a single word.
Unconvinced? Give your Eye and Earballs a load of this...
Suddenly, The Witcher 2 Enhanced Edition
is my most sought after release of 2012, even over the likes of Mass Effect 3
and MGR: Revengeance
My enthusiasm MAY waver during the torturous wait until its release on April 17th. But considering this is a high-fidelity console port of the most critically lauded PC title of 2011
, bundled with exclusive characters, locations and four hours of previously unearthed quests, I wouldn’t put much gold on it!
The Witcher 2
has been praised for its hauntingly accurate portrayal of mature topics such as politics, racism and (surprise, surprise) sex. Couple this with layered combat mechanics, a truly branching narrative and a seedy open world and you have a potential Skyrim
beater hitting the Xbox 360
in just a few short months.
